VIDEO: My Sulfate Free Hair Routine & How I Style My Curly Hair

Friday, July 27, 2012


Everything you'd need to know about my hair is in these two videos. Part 1 is all about sulfates and why they are harmful to your hair. I also touch on silicones, as well as the best and worst products for a sulfate free hair care system. Part 2 is how I style my curly hair on a daily basis, as well as the different curly hair types and the best styling products for you. I also go into my haircut and color.

Here's the list of ingredients to avoid in your hair products (bolded ones are most common): 
  • Alkylbenzene Sulfonate
  • Ammonium Laureth or Lauryl Sulfate
  • Ammonium or Sodium Xylenesulfonate
  • Dioctyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate
  • Ethyl PEG-15 Cocamine Sulfate
  • Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate
  • Sodium Cocoyl Sarcosinate
  • Sodium Laureth, Myreth, or Lauryl Sulfate
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate
  • TEA-Dodecylbenzenesulfonate
List of silicones that are not water soluble (will weigh down curls and/or cause buildup):
  • Cetearyl Methicone
  • Cetyl Dimethicone
  • Dimethicone
  • Dimethiconol
  • Stearyl Dimethicone
Ingredients that have the abbreviation "PEG" or "PPG" in front of it, along with Dimethicone Copolyol, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein Hydroxypropyl Polysiloxane, and Lauryl Methicone Copolyol are water-soluble and will not cause build up.
