Should I avoid Chemicals on my hair too?

Yes, definitely.  What you put on your hair penetrates into the scalp.  Also in the case of a shampoo or conditioner, when you rinse it off, it goes all over the body.

  • Avoid Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS)– is a surfactant (detergent) which is a foaming agent, found in cosmetic products and used as an industrial cleaning chemical (used to degrease engines!). It is has the potential to cause irritation to skin
  • Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES) & Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate (ALS)– same as above. Derivatives of SLS may vary slightly in mildness BUT the general action and effects are similar.

A good surfactant free hair and wash range is available in full and travel sizes.
