excited? We too. However, before you rush to buy yours, there are some facts you should know. Take note!
What is salt-free shampoo used for?
Salt-free shampoo does not contain sodium chloride (common salt), which is used to thicken it. It is more respectful of the natural structure of the hair, since it does not remove the natural oils or keratin that help keep it hydrated.
Now, it is not the same as a sulfate-free shampoo. The salt is the sodium chloride that serves to add thickness to the product, on the other hand, the sulfates are the salts of sulfuric acid. Sulfates are chemicals that cleanse the skin and hair. They are part of cosmetics because they are very effective in removing dirt and excess oil.
Although sodium chloride —present in most washing systems— serves to provide greater consistency to the products, it has also been proven that, over time, it can dry out the hair and make it prone to further damage such as he break and the fall. Also, salt washes dyes more easily.
For this reason, although it is suitable for anyone, the salt-free shampoo is ideal for curly, dry, brittle or chemically treated hair, since it requires greater hydration.

A shampoo is salt free if it does not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Potassium Chloride, Sodium Gluconate or Sodium Benzoate in its list of ingredients. In addition, you will notice that the texture of the salt-free shampoo is lighter.
