What is a Sulfate?
Surfactants are the cleansers found in everything from facial cleansers to shampoo and conditioner. Depending on the electric charge of the molecule, the surfactant falls into one of several categories. When we say Sulfate, we are talking about Alkyl Sulfates. There are two major types of Alkyl Sulfates, which are the most commonly used Sulfates in hair products. These are Sodium Lauryl Sulfates and Sodium Laureth Sulfates. Both of these are cheap, harsh detergents that are found in the majority of Shampoos. These sulfates are added to shampoos because they are cheap and create lather (aka foam, bubbles). 

Why do companies use Sulfates in their formulas?
Sulfates are what makes your shampoo nice and foamy. All that great foam is really appealing to a lot of people; it makes them think that their shampoo is really working. What you don't know is that you don't need all that foam to clean your hair. Another reason companies use Sulfates is because they are cheap! And who doesn't love cheap? Not only is it cost effective for companies to use Sulfates, but they are also really good cleaners! SO good, in fact, that they make up the detergent used at car washes, garage floor cleaners and as engine degreasers! Yum!

Why are Sulfates bad for you?Sulfates are what makes your shampoo lather.
Hopefully you read the above paragraph (engine degreaser ... ew), but if that isn't reason enough, we've got more. In shampoo formulas, Sulfates are thickened by adding salt (this mainly pertains to the Sodium Lauryl Sulfates). Sulfates alone can rob your hair of it's natural oils, as well as your skin. When you add salt to those harmful Sulfates, you double the effect, dehydrating your hair and possibly damaging it. Some people are also sensitive to Sulfates. Because they are generally derived from petroleum and are accompanied by salt, they can cause eye irritation, scalp irritation and tangled hair.

If products do not contain Sulfates, can they still clean?
Of course they can! While sulfates are really good cleaners (engine degreaser ... ew) they are not the only cleaner found in hair products. Common replacements for Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate are carboxylate, also known as Sodium Cocoyl Sarcosinate and Laruyl Sulfoacetate Sodium, a sulfonate. These ingredients are derived from plants and are of a very high quality and are very mild to human skin and eyes.
