Looking to protect your scalp from harmful silicone and sulphate additives found in shampoo’s and conditioners? Not only can these ingredients lead to a dry scalp, but they can also strip your hair of its vibrant colour. Shop from our list of sulphate-free products below, and protect your hair from the harmful elements.
The Colour Shampoo
If your hair has just been freshly coloured, it’s best to keep your haircare routine as low-maintenance as possible. Avoid sulphate’s and silicone’s which can strip the colour from your hair, leaving it brittle and lifeless. Look for ingredients which contain vitamins and nutrients to give your hair extra shine.
Kiehl’s Since 1851 Sunflower Colour Preserving Shampoo, $27.59
Treat your hair to a fortifying conditioner which will lock-in moisture, and leave it feeling super-smooth. Apply it onto your ends, and carefully comb through the product to remove any existing knots or tangles. Wash in cold water for best results, and pat your hair dry with a towel.
MooGoo Cream Conditioner, $17.50
The Dry Oil
Use a dry oil once a week to lock-in moisture, or simply apply it to your hair just like a mask. The concentrated particles help to soften split ends, and make your hair feel like brand new.
L’Occitane Shea Fabulous Dry Oil, $52.27
The Hair Mask
If your hair needs a bit of a pick-me-up, a hair mask is your best option. Not only does it help to strengthen and nourish the follicle, but it can repair damaged ends.
Sukin Protein Hair Treatment, $12.95
The Dry Shampoo
We all need a little dry shampoo once in a while, but it doesn’t need to dry-out our entire scalp. Luckily, Klorane is a lifesaver from the French pharmacy and it’s so affordable! Packed with oat extract (and without those nasty sulphate’s) to soothe hair from the outside.
