Do you have hair that needs to be washed daily or even every second day otherwise you end up with the worst hair day ever?

There is a good chance that your shampoo is the guilty culprit. With almost every shampoo around containing sodium laurel sulfate, it's no wonder so many of us are trapped in the vicious cycle of needing more and more hair products.


What is sodium laurel sulfate?


Sodium laurel sulfate is the ingredient that creates the foaming action in most shampoos. It is also a regular offender for causing skin & scalp irritation and can dry hair out, creating a vicious cycle of needing more and more hair products to make it feel smooth & silky once more. 


Cleansing should be a mild and gentle process, protecting the hair without stripping it of its essential elements. One of the many reasons that we love the Sans [ceuticals] sulfate-free hair washes is that they are formulated without sodium laurel sulfate & are crafted from local sustainable ingredients. Their natural hair washes are effective yet gentle and will leave your hair healthy, soft & nourished without needing to get on the hair product merry-go-round of adding more and products to your hair care ritual.
