Does Sulfate Free Make a Difference? L'Oreal's New Ever PureSaturday, May 23, 2009
There's been an increasing buzz about Sulfates and shampoos. Honestly, all I really know about the whole things is that Sulfates are some of the detergents and they are said to dry out your hair and strip the color faster (my stylist Shannon is doing some more research into this and will be educating me and helping me write a post. Pray we get our act together before I move across the country this summer). You should avoid them now. But, I haven't really seen a lot of products on the market that are Sulfate-Free. So, finding one from a big brand like L'Oreal (meaning, should be easy to find) is a huge bonus!
I honestly would not have ever known that there was something "different" about the Ever Pure Moisture shampoo/conditioner duo if such a big deal hadn't been made about how it was sulfate free. They are creamy and have a great rosemary-herbal scent that I loved in my morning shower. The shampoo has a great lather and cleaned my hair without over stripping it. The conditioner was very hydrating and definitely helped my hair which is prone to dryness.
Perhaps the best part of this duo was what they did for my hair. It was shiny and healthy looking, easy to style and insanely soft. The only downside is that I did seem to require a larger than normal amount of product to acheive these results (I filled the center of my palm rather than going with an amount the size of a silver dollar).
