Behind The Bottle, Know Your Ingredients: Chemicals to Avoid for Healthy Textured Hair

Behind The Bottle, Know Your Ingredients: Chemicals to Avoid for Healthy Textured Hair

Hey Curly, Coily, Kinky, Wavy Hair Fam! Here at Sarah Jane and Lomas Beauty, we're passionate about helping you embrace and celebrate your natural beauty. That includes understanding the products you use and how they impact your hair's health. As part of our one-year anniversary celebration, we are launching a new Series: Behind the Bottle. We want to highlight common ingredients found in haircare products, particularly those marketed towards textured hair, that can actually do more harm than good. We also want to educate you so that you browse the ingredient list before deciding to use the product on yourself, your family, or your clients and provide healthy alternatives, THAT WORK for curls, coils, kinks, and waves. 

As a trusted brand in the textured hair community, we want to empower you to make informed choices. In this series, we will explore some of the chemicals you might want to avoid:

  • Sulfates (SLS & SLES): Why are they used? They are often used to create a rich lather, which can appear and feel satisfying. Why should you avoid them? These harsh cleansing agents strip away natural oils, leaving hair dry, brittle, and prone to breakage. They can also irritate the scalp.

Lather does not equal clean. Understand more about the cleansing ingredients in the product versus the appearance of lathering. Hint: Shampoos are meant to clean oil, dirt and product residue from your scalp and ultimately your hair. The lather does not determine how clean your scalp and hair are after using the product.

The Sarah Jane and Lomas Difference:

At Sarah Jane and Lomas, we believe in healthy hair that thrives naturally. That's why we meticulously formulate our products to be free of these harsh chemicals and packed with nourishing ingredients specifically beneficial for textured hair.

Nourishing Your Textured Crown:
