Sulfate Free or Not Sulfate Free - That is the Question.

First and foremost, let me apologize for being real job has been keeping me busy and tired. However, I cannot fail the 10 people (maybe) who read this, so giddy-up.

You may or may not have noticed the recent influx of sulfate-free hair care on the is the low-down on why you may want to pay closer attention.

As it turns out, sulfates (you'll see it as "sodium laureth sulfate" on the bottle) are detergents responsible for the ridiculous lather you get from shampoo. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE a good lather, but these little guys can really wreak havoc on those amazing highlights you just paid for. While they really do clean well and are great at dissolving dirt, oil, etc. (it IS a detergent, after all), they can potentially dry out your hair and skin and also cause professional color to fade.

These are not harmful in any way, but how annoying is it to pay uber-bucks for a killer color job only to have it fade quickly? To give your hair color longer life and care, look for a sulfate-free shampoo. Conditioners should already be free of sulfates (conditioner should NOT be foaming).

A great drug-store find is a line by Organix. Every product is natural and sulfate-free...and they smell AMAZING. I am currently using Coconut Milk - nourishing blend - and I have to say that my hair is super shiny and soft, healthy, and my color/highlights combo still looks great. I'm sold. They are about $6 a pop - a great price.

Check out the Organix website here...wait until you see all of the amazing scents available!

You know you want to try some......XOXO, Tiff.
