I pay top dollar to have my hair look fresh and sharp at all times. But when i see that the color fades within three weeks after my appointment,
I go crazy!

I spoke with several hair specialists who assured me of what I was doing wrong. The each told me to avoid hair products with sodium lauryl sulfate in them, as this ingredient is bad for your color.

Although sodium lauryl sulfate derives from a coconut, it irritates the skin and removes color when it is mixed with other ingredients.

Many manufacturers use this in hair products, toothpastes, and soap, because it is a cheap means of cleaning the skin.

Most generic shampoos use sodium lauryl sulfate, and those that do not, typically clearly state no sulfates. While these are more expensive, it is a small price to pay to avoid skin rashes, dry skin, and quick color fading.

So, look out for NO SULFATES! This may be the answer to your problems!
