Are you using Sulfate Free hair products? You should be! Especially is you have colour treated hair. You might not be paying much attention to the ingredients going into your favourite shampoos and conditioners – but need to start reading the packaging and checking up on what you are putting onto your hair. If you read a bit more into the science behind it (I’m not sharing my research, as I’m no scientist, and who am I to say what’s right and wrong) there’s a fair argument for both sides of this sulfate-sword.
My hairdresser has been pushing the idea of ‘Sulfate Free’ to me for years – and after the water change in Cape Town (Apparently, they started pumping chemicals into it to keep it clean as we were running out to keep it gogga-free) my hair become more brittle and was falling out at a ridiculous rate, which was around 100 hairs per wash, and constantly shedding throughout the day. After colouring my hair for the first time, I was warned that I need to watch for the hair being overly brittle and that my recent hair loss needed to be addressed. So I went on a hunt for the perfect ‘Sulfate Free’ shampoo at Dischem.
I absolutely LOVED my Marc Anthony Coconut Butter Shampoo and Conditioner! The product lasted me well-over 2 months. I started off washing my hair every second day, and by the end of the product, go it down to twice a week. I found that not only was my hair no longer falling out, (got down to NO hair coming out in the shower) but all the hair I had previously lost was growing back. I think another draw was the smell – the product really smells of summer and the scent stayed until the next wash. I also found that the product really reduced the knots and tangles, which has always been a issue for me.
After around 9 weeks of using the product, my hair has never felt healthier, looked better and felt fuller. Money well spent and highly recommended. I even caught Gustav using it. He said it ‘makes his hair smell nice.’ That’s about as much of a review as you’re going to get out of him, I’m afraid.
Generally – BIG thumbs up on this product!
