Most mornings, you wake up, step into the shower, shampoo your hair (taking care to lather, rinse, and repeat, as per the directions on every bottle), follow it up with a conditioner, dry it, style it, and go about your day. No big deal, right?
But you’re noticing your hair is getting dryer, feels brittle, and doesn’t hold color for more than a few days before showing signs of fading. You’re even seeing dandruff! You’re not sure why every day seems like a bad hair day – you deep condition regularly, use thermal protectants, and UV sprays, but it’s not working.
The problem? Shampoo! Shampoo is terrible for your hair.
There’s a reason more and more people are tossing out their shampoos and reaching for more natural hair cleansers to wash their hair, and they’re seeing amazing results! Let’s look a little deeper at why you should be using a hair cleanser instead of shampoo.
Why is Shampoo So Bad for Your Hair?
In order to get the dirt, oils, and build up off your hair, shampoo contains harsh detergents and surfectants such as sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate. These detergents are fine for cleaning a carpet but they can strip the healthy oils from your scalp and leach the natural moisture from your hair.
The end result? Dry, faded, brittle hair that’s prone to damage and breaking.
Another problem with shampoos? They trigger excess oil production.
See, when you strip all the healthy oils away from the scalp, it’s going to trigger your body to produce more oil to protect your hair and scalp. Strip the oil, make more oil, until your hair often looks greasy if you go more than a day without shampooing it. Unfortunately, all but the roots are continuing to experience the drying damage of the chemicals in your shampoo.
Make the Switch to a Gentle Hair Cleanser
Instead of using harsh shampoos, it’s time to make the switch to a hair cleanser. Specifically, it’s time for one that is formulated to remove excess oils and dirt from the hair and scalp without stripping the healthy, natural oils you need for shiny, lustrous hair and a clean healthy scalp.
Hair cleansers don’t contain sulfates and harsh detergents to cleanse hair, instead relying on natural, oil-based cleansers to gently replenish, repair, and hydrate hair as it cleans.
The end result? A brilliantly clean scalp, nourished, strong hair follicles, and hair that is shiny, vibrant, and healthy, even hair that’s color-treated or curly!
