That Lather You Love May Be Making Your Hair Dry

According to many recent studies over the last several years, it turns out that the chemicals that make your hair products develop that foamy lather you love so much are actually causing serious problems for your hair’s health. For generations, men and women have been sold on the idea that the more lather your product gives you, the more squeaky clean your hair will be. Now we learn that that’s not the case, and that the ingredients that cause the foaminess we love so much actually have very dangerous consequences.

Sodium lauryl sulfate, the chemical behind the foam, works by binding together grease and dirt, which can then be rinsed off with water. This harsh chemical actually strips your hair of the natural oils that protect it and keep it shiny and healthy. The result is that the potent chemical leaves your hair dry, and your skin irritated.

Humans naturally shed about one hundred hairs a day, leaving follicles that are exposed and open. When the sodium lauryl sulfate makes contact with these follicles, the follicles then die as a result from the strong irritant properties of the chemical.

However, as people are becoming more and more aware of the dangers of this foaming agent, they are turning to sulfate-free hair product alternatives. WEN by Chaz is leading the way with sulfate-free hair products that keep your hair healthy and preserve its natural oils.

WEN’s 5-in-1 Cleansing Conditioner is a product that takes the place of shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler and leave-in conditioner. This product revitalizes your hair’s health by deeply cleaning and moisturizing it without the use of any lathering agents or harsh chemicals that strip your hair of the natural oils it requires to stay healthy, leaving you with soft, manageable and healthy hair. After just three weeks, users of the product claim their hair felt much more moisturized and was easier to manage.
