Your new Hair Flair extensions are of the absolute best quality, crème de la crème, the Rolls Royce of hair extensions. So obviously you want to take proper care to ensure they last for a long, long, time. Shampoo is one of the most important products for doing just that, but if you aren’t careful, your shampoo can actually aid in the premature deterioration of your gorgeous locks.
What are sulfates, and why don’t we like them?
You’ve probably heard of sulfate-free products, but why should you care?… at the very least, when it comes to your hair extensions? Sulfates are chemical detergents that very effectively cleanse the hair follicles… to the point they strip your hair of essential oils and degrade the surface tension for moisture. They are also known to irritate your scalp and eyes, cause tangles and split ends, and with long term use will certainly have a negative effect on the overall health of your hair, and therefore, your hair extensions.
While this entire line is sulfate-free, this one is an extra strength formula for damaged hair. It contains coconut oil and smells like warm vanilla cookies.
