This post was inspired by Kim over at Fancy Flair Lady. About a month ago, she noted she was having problems with the feel of her hair and asked her readers about whether they used sulfate-free shampoos and I replied that each Wash Day, I use both sulfate and sulfate-free and here’s why …
I am deathly afraid of having buildup on my fine strands and much-needed moisture being blocked. Some of my conditioners and leave-ins have small amounts of silicone in them, so I want to make sure they are removed. I have seen the devastation that inadequate removal of silicones can cause. I also do a pre-poo every Wash Day, so I feel that my hair is up to using sulfates.
For my first wash, I use a gentle sulfate shampoo such as Amla Legends Body Filler Hair Wash, which does not leave my hair feeling stripped, but removing any product that may be hard to remove with a sulfate-free shampoo. I then follow up with my sulfate-free Alterna Caviar Volume shampoo, which helps to replenish moisture. I then proceed to do an in-shower conditioning treatment.
I have been doing this for majority of my HHJ and have not had any problems with it! 🙂
