Straight hair has been a popular look for decades, made famous by people such as Rachel Green in the show “Friends” or Kim Kardashian. The hair care industry is going through a self awareness movement and now more than ever women with straight hair are looking for sulfate free shampoos to keep their straight locks healthy and drying out. People are beginning to realize that many traditional ingredients like sulfates are not necessary and can irritante you in more ways than just giving you frizzy hair.
Sulfates are detergents that can dry strip the natural oils out of both your hair and your scalp leaving you straight hair looking limp and lifeless. Sulfates are unnecessary and sadly found in the majority of over the counter shampoos. Luckily there are brands like Reform Beauty who’ve created entire lines of clean, toxin free, sulfate free hair care products.
