What is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate(SLS)?
Here’s the Truth about sulfates in your shampoo
Over 80 percent of all commercial shampoos in the market use Sodium Lauryl Sulfate(SLS) in their formula. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is the ingredient in shampoos that we recognize as cleansing agents. Sulfates act as emulsifiers that reduce the surface tension of liquids, which makes the liquid easier to mix with water and surfactants (to help clean and create lather). SLS is a potent de-greaser as it binds to the dirt and grease on both your hair and scalp and dissolves vital skin oils on the skin that result in dryness.
The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) says people who have eczema, contact dermatitis, or sensitive skin should avoid Sodium Lauryl Sulfate(SLS). Any potential lathering effects from sulfate shampoos could irritate these types of skin conditions. You’ll also want to avoid other known irritants in shampoos such as synthetic fragrances, alcohol, and alpha-hydroxy acids like glycolic and lactic acids.
What cause dry and fizzy hair?
Additionally, sulfates are known to cause hair frizz. When sulfates make contact with your hair, they create a negative electrical charge, which can create frizz after you shampoo. You can minimize these risks by choosing Inna Organic Lemon-scented Tea Tree Shampoo or Cedarwood Shampoo. In Inna Organic, we use Trio of Natural Surfactants(Anionic surfactant, nonionic surfactant, zwitterionic surfactant)，which do not cause hair frizz and eye irritation, gently washes away styling product buildup and impurities without stripping hair or irritating the scalp.

What is hair?
Hair is one of the defining characteristics of mammals. The human body, apart from areas of glabrous skin, is covered in follicles that produce thick terminal and fine vellus hair. Hair is made of a tough protein called keratin. A hair follicle anchors each hair into the skin. The hair bulb forms the base of the hair follicle. In the hair bulb, living cells divide and grow to build the hair shaft.
