friends want to try SULFATE FREE ?
 
Help!

I use the Kinky curly shampoo, conditioner and KCC.
My friends know that I only wash my hair once or twice a week. I always talk about the sulfates and the cones.

Some are skeptic, some are curious. I've persuaded a few to try going sulfate and cone free, but I'm not sure if I need to recommend specific brands to them because they are not curly girls. Some of them might have a tiny bit of wave, but nothing to write home about.

What products do I recommend to them?
They can still benefit, right?

Thanks~

Man I still think everyone under the sun would benefit from KC Come clean and KCKT. Regardless of hair type.

Personally I think the Shea Moisture Moisture Retention shampoo is fantastic and would work for any hair type. It's very gentle and moisturizing. Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture conditioner is also one that would work for all hair types. For CO washing, Suave and VO5 are both very popular.

Everyone can benefit from sulphate free because sulphates damage skin and hair, ideally go anionic surfactant free. Consider their skin type as well as their hair properties not simply their wave pattern: certain oils and butters would be a disaster for those with seborrhoeic dermatitis (greasy dandruff) for example. Those with colour treated, porous or heat damaged hair should do well with ingredients like coconut oil, hydrolysed protein, ceramides and panthenol. Fine hair does well with protein, coarse hair does not.

Body Shop Rainforest Moisture shampoo and conditioner would work well for some. The Dermorganic line is pH appropriate for skin and hair and not specifically marketed to curlies. Like with commercial sulphate shampoos and silicone conditioners there is an element of trial and error to find products they love, maybe they could purchase say three shampoos and three conditioners between three people and share?

Not necessarily. I found the KC Come Clean very striipping and the KCKT not moisturizing enough. My hair has changed in the 4 years since I went natural, so maybe I'd be okay with it now. But when I was very dry, nope. Too strong a poo and too weak a condish. Smelled lovely, tho.

Hmmm may or because I'm a wavy. I don't did it that stripping. What I think is great about kckt is its detangling properties. Never used another to touch it.

Not everyone has a problem with tangles tho, but some of us do have a problem with products at neutral pH which Knot Today is. The olefin sulfonates in Come Clean are pretty harsh and the pH is very high at 8, one thousand times more alkaline than skin, ten thousand times more alkaline than hair
THE NATURAL HAVEN: Are sulfate free shampoos really gentler?

Sulfates + Silicones = Dry Hair
 
I've been sulfate free for 5 years. It was strange at first because there was no lather. Now I have been silicone free for 1 month (unless I missed something in the ingredient list on my conditioner bottle), and my hair looks touchable and the curls are so moist! I wish I knew about silicones and sulfates years ago!

Here's and article that talks about what silicones and sulfates do to your hair.

I am currently washing my hair with L'Oreal EverCreme Intense Nourishing Conditioner.

I'd recommend Shea Moisture to anyone :)
