Here’s why you need to add a sulphate-free shampoo to your hair-care routine

Sulphate-free shampoo and paraben-free shampoos have gained immense popularity over the past few years. Social media too is bombarded with posts that recommend using sulphate-free shampoos for healthy and luscious hair.

But is there any truth in this or is it just another marketing gimmick? Before that, let’s take a closer look at what sulphates and parabens are.

What are sulphates and parabens?

To put it simply, sulphates are the reason your shampoo forms a bubbly, foaming texture once applied. They are detergents or surfactants that wash away all the dirt, sebum and residue from your hair.

On the other hand, parabens act like preservatives that are added to prolong the shelf-life of hair care products and protect them from mould and bacteria.

Why should you avoid Sulphates and Parabens in shampoos?

Although sulphates help clean your scalp and hair well and parabens increase the shelf-life of your shampoo, they can be harsh. The scalp produces natural sebum-like oil which is known to be essential; and these chemicals can strip your hair off that natural oil, leaving it feeling very dry and brittle. It is also possible that sulphates could cause irritation like redness, dryness, and itching, especially if you have a sensitive scalp.

What are sulphate and paraben-free shampoos?

Well, as the term itself would suggest, sulphate and paraben-free shampoos are products that are devoid of any sulphate and paraben-based ingredients. They are crafted to cleanse your scalp and hair in a more mild and a gentle fashion.

How do they help?

1) Maintain Your Mane’s Natural Oils

As mentioned earlier, shampoos with sulphates and parabens can remove your mane’s natural oils leaving it dry and brittle. It can feel worse if you have dry hair. Godrej Professional’s wide range of chemical-free shampoos cleanse your hair gently without stripping your hair of its natural oils, leaving your hair shiny and scalp moisturised.

2) Preserves Your Hair Colour

It’s a bummer to have your newly coloured hair lose its shine and vibrancy a few months later, and you never know, shampoos with sulphates and parabens might just be the culprit for it. So, if you have coloured hair, you can opt for the Godrej Professional Keracare Repair Shampoo that is specially formulated for chemically treated hair.

Usage Recommendation:
  • Apply the Keracare Recharge Shampoo evenly on your scalp and wet hair.
  • Lather it at the roots and then slowly work it through the lengths of your hair.
  • Rinse well.

Enriched with the goodness of wheat protein and grapeseed oil, this sulphate-free shampoo is sure to improve your hair health by making it glossy and frizz-free. Grapeseed oil in the shampoo works to moisturise and condition the hair, thereby strengthening it and making it healthy. Wheat protein on the other hand repairs damaged hair, making them shiny and manageable.

3) Make Moisture Your Best Friend

If your hair is often tangled and frizzy, and it’s hard to run your hands through them, chances are that your hair lacks proper hydration and moisture. The Godrej Professional Keracare Recharge Combo consists of a shampoo and a conditioner that are known to provide deep nourishing and hydration properties that manage frizz and adds an extra shine to your hair.

Acai oil and Menthol in the shampoo provide nourishment and leave behind a cooling sensation, while also cleansing the hair and scalp.

Use both the products at least twice or thrice a week for best results.
