Pourquoi faut-il privilégier des soins cheveux sans sulfate ?

Why use sulfate-free hair care?

Sulfate is a chemical product that is generally used as a cleaning agent. It is often found in cosmetic products (shower gel, toothpaste, shampoo for greasy hair, etc.), but also in household products. So the question arises : do we really want to clean our hair with a product that contains the same ingredients as our washing-up liquid ? Find out more about the dangers of sulfates for the scalp and our alternatives : sulfate-free hair care products that are both gentle and effective and that protect your hair and scalp.

What are the dangers of sulfate for the scalp?

Sulfate is particularly effective at getting rid of dirt. What's more, it produces a lovely and creamy lather : that's why it is present in almost all shampoos, including organic shampoos. Unfortunately, it also has a number of undesirable effects : dehydrated hair, discoloration, itchy hair... Find out more about the dangers of sulfates so you can avoid them.

Sulfate in the hair: itchings of the scalp

Sulfate is a very powerful surfactant, which is why it often causes allergic reactions and itchy scalps. The body often defends itself by producing an excessive amount of sebum, leading to the appearance of dandruff. While sebum helps nourish the hair and keep it healthy when properly regulated, too much of it can have undesirable effects. In some cases, sulfate can even trigger eczema.

Hair dehydration: another danger of sulfates

To be healthy, our hair needs to be properly nourished. It is the sebum produced naturally by our sebaceous glands that keeps it moisturized on a daily basis. However, sulfate is such a strong detergent that it destroys the sebaceous glands. What's more, it's usually combined with silicone: a substance that acts like a shiny sheath, but which in reality conceals the damaging effects of the sulfate. Used over the long term, silicone suffocates the hair and prevents treatments from penetrating the hair fiber. In the end, your hair gets dry and fragile. So what are the possible alternatives?

Why not choose a sulfate-free hair care routine?

Using a sulfate-free and silicone-free shampoo may take a little getting used to. First of all, you'll need to get used to its less frothy texture.

But after a few weeks of use, you'll start to feel the benefits of your sulfate-free shampoo: your hair will be healthier, fuller and much stronger than before. And good news: you won't need to wash your hair as often as before!
