Hi girls, I wanted to make you aware of certain chemicals which can be very harsh and drying to the hair. Check to see if your shampoo contains the following ingredients, it most likely does!
Do you feel that your hair is dry and you need to use more conditioner and buy intense moisture masks? Then seriously try eliminating these ingredients and see the difference.

Ingredient info from: http://www.savvyskin.com/shampoo-ingredients-to-avoid
Extremely common ingredients
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate
Ammonium Laureth Sulfate
Ammonium Xylene Sulfonate
TEA Lauryl Sulfate
Sulfur (in dandruff shampoos)
Selenium Sulfide (in dandruff shampoos)
Less common ingredients
Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate
Alkyl Sodium Sulfate
Alkyl Benzene Sulfonate
Sodium C12-15 Alkyl Sulfate
Sodium Dodecyl Sulfonate
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate and Ammonium Laureth Sulfate is the chemical used to make your shampoo froth. Shampoos that don't contain these don't froth up as much so you have been warned, but still clean your hair just as good!
I have switched to natural paraben free shampoos about 5 months ago and it has really made a difference, even my hubby is a convert!
I originally used Aveda, but found it was too expensive to keep up with. So I did my research and found this alternative http://www.nakedbodycare.co.uk/ it's the naked hair line available at boots, the shampoo's are £3.99, which isn't too bad, paraben and nasty harsh chemical free! There are many more brands to choose from.. but be sure to print out the list of what to avoid.. and get your hair looking and feeling its best!
