The Low Poo technique has improved the health of my hair for good. For those of you who don’t know it yet, it consists on removing sulfates (harsh detergents contained in shampoos) from our routines, as they interfere with hair’s natural oils and end up drying it out. It also proposes to eliminate all traces of petrolatum, paraffins and insoluble silicones that can only be removed by these type of shampoos and are present in many conditioners, hair masks and styling products out there. I’ve already heard about this technique, but never really paid much attention to it until now: in a few weeks it has made a remarkable difference on the way my hair looks and feels. It’s super shiny and smooth now! I’m currently using local products so I can’t tell you that much, but I wanted to put togheter a list of shampoos and conditioners available practically anywhere and free from the aforementioned substances that I really want to try, for a gentler cleansing and moisturizing routine.
