As much as I’m picky with the products that go on my face, I’ve been guilty of switching my shampoos between multiple brands depending on their prices. This means I had absolutely no idea what I was washing my scalp with. While I would splurge on my favourite TRESemmé Scalp Care Shampoo every once in a while, its ingredient list contains sulfate which was silently stripping away my natural oils and proteins.

Prior to this experiment, I had no clue how common sulfate is used to make shampoos. Almost every bottle I screened through contained sodium lauryl sulfate or sodium laureth sulfate in its ingredient list. I ended up settling for Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Shampoo which is free from silicones, sulphates, parabens and phthalates which undeniably, burnt a hole in my wallet but proved to be a worth it investment after all.

Although it took a couple of weeks before noticing a subtle result in a less oily scalp, it reduced my scalp itchiness after a few days. However, as weeks went by, my ends started to become frizzy and would often tangled easily so I ended up having to splurge on the Briogeo’s Deep Conditioning Mask which did the trick in restoring it back to its healthy state.
