Shampoos for Faster Hair Growth

Your choice of shampoo can actually make a difference in the overall health of your hair. Many common shampoos contain harsh sulfates that can strip your hair. Take a look at the ingredients in your current shampoo. If it contains any of the following, it could be damaging your hair:

Ammonium Laureth Sulfate
Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate
TEA Laureth Sulfate
TEA Lauryl Sulfate
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate

So exactly what are sulfates? The most common types of sulfates used in shampoos are Sodium Laureth Sulfate. This is the ingredient that actually lathers up in your hair. However it can be very drying and damaging to your hair.

These types of shampoos should be used for clarifying only. A clarifying shampoo should be used once a month, if at all. Using a clarifying shampoo is not necessary but can be done to remove excess dirt or buildup.

The best type of shampoo to use is one that is gentle and moisturizing. A good example of a gentle shampoo is the Essentious Exonerate Shampoo. However, at a minimum, you should not use shampoos with harsh sulfates as your regular shampoo.

The following sulfates are gentle and will not damage your hair:

Polyoxethylene Fatty Alcohols
PEG 80
Sorbitan Laurate
Decyl Polyglucose
Cocamidoprpyl Betaine
Sodium Myreth Sulfate
Sodium Laureth Sulfate

Although shampoos that are more gentle may be a bit more expensive, they are well worth the price tag, as your hair will be softer and less frizzy
