SULFATES & HAIR EXTENSIONS DON’T MIX
You’ve probably heard it over and over: only use sulfate-free shampoo on your extensions. But why? What’s so wrong about sulfates?
That frothy, white lather that forms when you shampoo or use conditioner comes from sulfates contained in hair products. The problem is that they clean too well. Your scalp produces natural oils that nourish hair, and sulfates wipe out those natural oils. If your hair is too oily, then some sulfates can help cleanse hair. But if your hair is dry, then sulfates can be irritating to the scalp.
Because hair extensions aren’t attached directly to your scalp, they don’t receive the natural oils from your hair. Sulfates will dry out even natural hair extensions extensions and strip them of their color. Use extension appropriate home care, such as SHE Hair Extensions 4U complete treatment line!
