Many common shampoos contain harsh sulfates that can strip your hair, causing it to become dry and eventually leading to breakage. Harsh sulfates include:
Ammonium Laureth Sulfate
Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate
TEA Laureth Sulfate
TEA Lauryl Sulfate
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
These types of harsh shampoos should be used for clarifying only. A clarifying shampoo should be used once monthly. This will allow for more effective penetration of your hair treatments. The following sulfates are gentle and will not damage your hair:
Polyoxethylene Fatty Alcohols
PEG 80
Sorbitan Laurate
Decyl Polyglucose
Cocamidoprpyl Betaine
Sodium Myreth Sulfate
Sodium Laureth Sulfate

Cream of Nature shampoo has a very mild detergent -Decyl Polyglucose and tricedeth(sp). Its really moisturizing. Especially the one for dry and damaged hair. Packed with good stuff like honey, & wheat germ.

I was shocked to find out that not one of the shampoos I have used is gentle on hair. Something is wrong with that picture.

Do you think that daily washing with the gentle shampoos is conducive to hair growth or should shampooing in general be limited to 1-2x per week?

Man, the list of products I want to try is getting so long. I don't think I'll have room in my bathroom cabinets. Time to do some cleaning.

i was so surprised to see how many shampoos that claim they do not have the harsh chemicals as others had almost every name on the list.

What is really sad is that the shampoo companies. The shampoo companies do not want consumers to know about the harmful effects of sulfates. I think the internet has really hurt them with that. That is why they now want to include olive oil, or coconut oil, etc in their ingredients. That is a good thing but they still use the sulfates hoping people who want natural products will not read the list of ingredients. When I first researched sulfates one company called the harmful effects of sulfates a myth. If I can find it I will post it later.

I have been sulfate-free for the past month, and I cannot begin to tell you how much healthier my hair and scalp feels. I do not itch or irritate my scalp, my hair is never dry. It is behaving so well. Sometimes, I have to pet my scalp and say "That is a good wittle scalpy" (OKAY, I am goofy) Laughing

Since then, I have been using Dr. Bronner's Magic Classic Liquid Castille Soaps, as well as HairOne Cleansing Cream for my moisturizing weeks. Hey, sometimes I get lazy and I would love to use shampoos and conditioner that I do not contain a lot of oil.
