Noticing that your strands are falling out more than usual? The products you use on your hair greatly impact its overall health and appearance. That’s why it’s important to make sure that everything in your haircare arsenal is designed to nourish and revitalize your scalp and strands, especially when it comes to your go-to shampoo.
“Hair care practices that causes thinning or breakage are typically very harsh or traumatic practices,” says New York Dermatologist and RealSelf contributor Dr. Sejal Shah. “However, if you are harsh on your hair, breakage and thinning can occur.”
Experts say that it's best to avoid shampoos that contain sulfates because of their ability to damage the condition of your scalp and make it drier and itchier, which can lead to hair loss and breakage.
“Sulfates can strip the hair of its natural oils, break down proteins in the hair, slow down and potentially stop hair growth," Dr. Shah says.
Instead, it's best to opt for a shampoo that is fortified with amino acids and antioxidants to promote hair growth and circulation. Dr. Shah recommends using giving Majestic Pure's Argan Oil Shampoo a try if you suspect that your current formula is damaging your strands. It's made with hair-healthy oils and vitamins that work together to strengthen the hair, while also promoting regrowth.
