Shampoo Ingredients to Avoid and When
Avoid shampoos with sodium chloride for those who get keratin or smoothing treatments.
Avoid shampoos with sulfates for those who get demi-permanent or permanent haircolor.
These ingredients strip the hair causing both of these salon services to fade and to not last as long. There are other studies that claim these ingredients are associated with hair loss, but the actual haircolor or keratin treatment are both chemicals that could also cause hair loss. So if you are willing to get chemicals, then you should be willing to use shampoos with sulfates in order to strip the hair of the "bad stuff."
So learn when to use shampoos that strip the hair and learn when not to use certain shampoos. Ideally, home maintenance products should not be stripping. Just leave the harsher shampoos in the hands of the salon professionals to know when to use them.
