Could Your Shampoo Be The Real Reason For Your Dry Hair?

Many of us, especially during the cold winter months, experience hair that is dry, frizzy and uncooperative. Some of us even experience dry scalps which flake in the form of embarrassing dandruff that collects on our shoulders. We look to drug store deep conditioners to solve this problem, but our hair just doesn’t seem to want to retain moisture.

The reason that your hair doesn’t seem to respond to intensive conditioning could be because of the shampoo you are using. Despite all your best efforts to moisturize and condition your hair routinely, if your shampoo has ingredients which are proven to dry out and damage your hair, you are regularly counteracting all the benefits of deep conditioning.

Typical drug store shampoos contain an ingredient called sodium lauryl sulfate which is known to be an aggressive detergent that is tremendously harmful to your hair. This detergent bonds grease and dirt so that these impurities may be easily rinsed out, but this process does more harm than good by also stripping hair of natural oils that keep your hair soft and silky.

With many woman washing their hair daily with these harmful shampoos, it’s no wonder that dry hair is among women’s top beauty complaints. To avoid dry and damaged hair, it is essential to find a shampoo which is free of sodium lauryl sulfate. There are some shampoos currently on the market which will effectively clean your hair without this damaging chemical.

One example of a hair cleanser which is free of sodium lauryl sulfate is WEN Hair 5-in-1 Cleansing Conditioner. Not quite a shampoo, this cleansing conditioner simultaneously cleans and deeply conditions your hair with completely natural ingredients. WEN’s Cleansing Conditioner uses organic botanical extracts and natural moisturizers like vegetable glycerin, leaving hair soft, silky and healthy.

WEN hair Cleansing Conditioner by Chaz Dean will undo years of damage caused by drying and damaging shampoos. This product need only be applied once a week for hair that is moisturized and shiny, even during the coldest, driest months of the year.
