The Right Way to Wash Your Hair with Sulfate-Free Shampoo

November 15, 2021

Nothing washes away a bad hair day—or a bad mood, for that matter—better than an invigorating hair wash.

Daily shampooing isn’t an option for some of us. We often need to skip a day, either because overwashing leaves us with a dry scalp, or we lack time in the morning before rushing out the door.

Why Are Sulfates Bad for Your Hair?

May 24, 2021

Sulfates do a great job of helping shampoos remove sweat, oil and grime from your hair. Yet, your hair and scalp need to retain some of their natural oils and moisture to remain healthy.
