a gentler approach
to hair care

sulfate-free shampoos
are now targeted to all hair types

More than half of American women—and an increasing number of men—color their hair, prompting the beauty industry to come up with an increasing number of products that address the special needs of color-treated hair. Sulfate-free shampoos have been generating buzz because they gently but effectively cleanse hair without the harsh detergents that can strip away color and moisture. And now detergent-free shampoos are being targeted to the general hair care market as a gentler, more natural approach to caring for hair of all types. You'll find a selection at SallyBeauty.com or at your nearby Sally store.

What are sulfates? Found in most shampoos and soaps, sulfates comprise a family of ingredients that includes the commonly used foaming agents Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). These sudsy "surfactants" can contribute to moisture loss in all hair, and can cause color-treated hair to fade prematurely.
