Sulphate free or Sodium free shampoos - 05-08-10, 11:11 PM

Hi all,

I have been doing some research into which shampoos are ok to use after the brazilian blow dry, so I can compile a list to give to my customers once the complimentary ones I give them are finished.

I've come across countless sulphate free, but very small sodium free, in fact 2 , 1 being La Brasiliana.

I'm drawing my own conclusion that if a shampoo is sulphate free, it will be sodium free, as La Brasiliana contains ammonium laurel sulphate,( no sodium) but not sodium laurel sulphate, or sodium laureth sulphate (sodium and sulphate).

So far I've found all Pureology, Tigi S-Factor Health factor shampoo, and Rockaholic, livin the dream, and Osmo colour which does say sodium and salt free!

Eufora is an American salon professional Brand that I buy and give to my hairdresser who does my hair on a weekly basis. It is free of all petro-chemical products plus the others mentioned here and also does not contain water - which has been replaced by aloevera in the formula.

As a client I adore this shampoo ... my hair really does shine like the adds and my hairdresser never has to use use conditioner on my hair. Whenever I am forced to use anything else (if I am travelling) my hair instantly feels terrible and completely different. I try to remember to take it with me everywhere I go.

I hope to god I can always get a supply of it.

Can I ask why you don't recommend the one that compliments your Brazilian blowdry system? I use Kerastraight and only recommend the Kerastraight shampoo and conditioner to maintain the hair. That way any problems I have can be traced.

No it's not expensive, it is just a bit rank, and pureology is nicer. Clients would rather use a nicer product. Plus my margin is better with pureology.

Hi there,

I give my clients a free 50ml bottle each of La Brasiliana Shampoo and Conditioner with every treatment, with p&p the 250ml bottles would work out about 14 each, and its not that great.

I've printed a list of does and don't for clients to follow and also have recommended shampoos they can obtain EASILY themselves.
I want to offer them as many options as possible, as being mobile I cannot keep the official products in stock.

Thanx

There's a loreal one too. I used it when my hair was red, i can't remember the name but it's in a see through pink bottle and the shampoo is clear. I know it's sulfate free. It don't know about sodium. Maybe you could look on their website for the name.

Im not a hair geek but thought this might be another one to add I your list.

Alterna products are free from sulphates and sodium and parabans and the profit margin is great.

Sodium Chloride is the one that strips the keratin out.
