Sodium Chloride in Herbal Essence?!

Hi all,

I am in uk and just noticed that Herbal Essence Hello Hydration conditioners have sodium chloride in them.

Now is Sodium Chloride salt? Isnt that going to dry out natural hair? I just noticed it and wanted to ask other people in other countries Europe, America, South America, etc if their versions of Hello Hydration conditioners have sodium chloride?

Or is it Just the Uk HH conditioners that have sodium chloride?

Please let me know if its the same ingredient or not?

Thanks for your feedback.

some of their products do, however i use some of their gel and it is the best i've ever used.
Yes, sodium chloride is salt. Don't you have hard water in the UK? Perhaps that's why they add it. (To combat the hardness of the water. Salt is what they use in water softeners.)

I agree their products are really good. Especially the herbal essence hello hydration it really made my hair soft and shiny. So, their products really are good. Plus they are on sale in the Uk now buy one get one free so I dont think I will give up on it just yet.

I just wonder how much damage Sodium chloride will
actually do to the hair over time?

I had no idea that they added salt to combat the hard water. That's quite interesting.

I just worry about whether or not it will be drying over time and cause any real damage to hair?

Despite my worry about the sodium chloride in the Herbal Essence. The conditioner is really good. I suppose I wont use it as a leave in anymore since it has salt in it. But it makes a good rinsing conditioner.

I guess I will have to look out more carefully for
ingredients next time I buy shampoo or conditioner.

Thanks for the feedback ladies.

Well, I am certainly no expert, but I can tell you that we had very hard water before we got our water softener fixed. Now that it's fixed we go through big bags of salt to soften our water. My hair has been really doing well since we've been able to use the softener again, so though I don't know what the long term affects are, I can tell you that it's only been good since salt has been added to our water.

Well, I think my initial thought (hard water) was probably correct. I bought a sample size of the Hello Hydration and Sodium Chloride is not on the list of ingredients (I'm in the US).

Thanks alot ladies for the response.

I was just couldnt figure out why they would put salt in the conditioner.

I realised when I use shampoo it doesnt sud right away it takes a time to sud. I shoul dhave realised that it hard water but I took too long to figure this out.

Just another question:
Do you have sodium hydroxide in some shampoos
where you live? I dont use it but I saw it in the store recently. I have seem sodium hydroxide in some shampoos where I live in Uk. The last time I read something that sodium hydroxide is used to
relax people's hair like no-lye relaxers or something.

OH Man!!! I hate the UK products. I am not originally from UK so their products kind of scare me alot.
I wish I could get some good plain US products.

Anyways thanks again for the feedback.

I have seen it, but the product's I use don't have it. It's only a relaxer in combination with certain other chemicals, so you're safe. (I guess. I still wouldn't use it.)
