SheFinds News: The Dangers of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate

Lately there has been a lot of talk about Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and its possible harmful effects. Women’s Wear Daily reports that “the State of New York is studying whether there should be warning labels on shampoo packaging to make consumers aware of the possible effects of products that contain sodium lauryl sulfate and/or cocamide DEA, both foaming agents.” SLS makes that wonderful lather we’re all so used to in a shampoo. Lorraine Massey, author of Curly Girl, says that “Americans are addicted to lather,” but that, ultimately, the essence of the shampooing experience is contributing to damaged hair. The solution? Shampoos without SLS.

Devachan, the famous salon for curly tresses, offers up No-Poo, a non-lathering shampoo made specifically for curly/frizzy hair that can be used by anyone. It could take some getting used to, though.

If you feel you can’t give up the lather, then give John Masters Organics Evening Primrose Shampoo a try. This stuff does lather, but not quite as much as the normal detergent shampoos. This also takes some getting used to. The gel is thick and doesn’t move smoothly through the hair. But, in the end, it rinses clean and you’re left with lovely, hydrated locks minus the evil of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.

Get Devachan’s No-Poo for $13 at their online store. You can find Evening Primrose Shampoo at b-glowing for $16.
