- cationic are the most irritant for your skin.
- anionic, mostly sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate clean hair deeply but also produce a lot of foam. Besides being pollutants they are irritating and corrosive.
- amphoterics are obtained from renewable raw materials like starch, glucose and saccharose and are very gentle cleaners.
In general, classic shampoos contain catonic and anionic surfactants. They irritate, disrupt your oil glands and harm your scalp thus making you scratch yourself. This leads to hair loss. They also have bad consequences on your body since chemicals are absorbed by the skin pores.
That’s why more and more people are switching for natural shampoos. And you should do the same. Here is why:
Organic shampoos contain natural ingredients such as extracts from plants and herbs, oils, nutrients, even fruits and vegetables. Those ingredients stimulate follicles’ hair helping them to grow faster. If you have frequent headaches, you will realize that using an organic shampoo will free you. Trust me I experienced it! You can also say goodbye to irritation and allergies. And since they are free of chemicals, you will protect the environment.
