YOU magazine gets to grips with sulphate issues in hair products

YOU magazine’s health’s editor Sarah Stacey, along with Josephine Fairly, a contributing editor of the same magazine, help their readers to solve and demystify issues pertaining to sulphate-free hair products since it has been noted that sulphates cause skin irritations from head to toe, not to mention mouth ulcers since it is an ingredient commonly found in toothpastes.

Some of the sulphate-free hair products and brands include L’Oreal with its EverPure Shampoo, Yes to Tomatoes’ volumising shampoo and volumising conditioner, Liz Earl also has a variety of products that are naturally made, and Phylia hair care product are excellent for tresses.

L’Oreal’s hair care products such as the ‘Paris Hair EverPure Expert Moisture and Colour Care’ that is suitable for dry and dyed hair retails for as low as £5.99 for every 250ml tube whereas the natural ‘Botanical Shine Shampoo’ from the same company costs £8.50 for every 200ml tube. Conditioners from ‘Liz Earle Naturally Active Haircare’ retails for £8.50 for each 200ml tube.

L’Oreal also retails the ‘Botanical Shine Treatment’ for unruly, coarse, and frizzy hair for about £14 for every 150ml tube, and even though the product is not 100% natural, it is composed of plant extracts and is also sulphate-free.

Victoria’s Health sulphate-free range of hair products, the likes of ‘Yes to Tomatoes’ which is doing pretty well in the market with the 500ml shampoo retailing for £8.99 and Sarah advises that it is wise to invest in the shampoo from the ‘Phylia de M’ range called ‘Clean’ which retails for £28 for every 265ml tube.

The shea-butter lip balm seems quite intimidating due to its bright hot pink appearance but does the opposite by leaving the lips looking luscious, super-smooth and deliciously comfortable and retails in stores countrywide for only £20 a piece.
