Why You Should Consider Surface Haircare Products

A,lot,of,different,cosmetic,products,for,personal,care,isolatedWhy You Should Consider Surface Haircare Products

Surface haircare products are high performance salon exclusive hair care that respects your personal health and the Earth. They trade parabens, sulfates, gluten, animal proteins, heavy oil, DEA and TEA, phthalates and PVP/VA plastics for healthy oils, plant extracts and botanicals that enrich your hair with health and shine while protecting color!


We all know that there is so much controversy around a few key ingredients that seem to crop up on every shampoo and conditioner you’ve ever seen. Thankfully, the beauty industry is moving away from these toxic ingredients, as evidenced by the influx of “paraben-free” haircare options available in stores and online. But what exactly are these chemicals and why do we need to worry about them? Parabens are artificial preservatives that have been used in beauty and personal care products since the 1920s to increase their shelf life by preventing mold and bacteria growth from within their containers. But they’re also been linked to a number of negative health effects, including hormonal disruption and reproductive organ damage, among other issues. Surface haircare products are formulated without parabens and are perfect for those who want to avoid these potentially harmful ingredients!


If you have celiac disease or are gluten intolerant, you may want to consider using Surface haircare products containing no gluten. This is because some of the ingredients in these shampoos and conditioners can be absorbed into your skin if you get them in your mouth, and that can trigger an allergic reaction. But there are also people who are sensitive to gluten but do not have celiac disease or other health conditions that affect the small intestine. This is referred to as non-celiac gluten sensitivity. This is why it’s so important to read the labels on your cosmetic products to avoid ingesting wheat, barley, rye or oats!


Sulfates are detergents that are found in many consumer products such as soaps, shampoos, shower gels and handwashes. They help clean by emulsifying oil, cleaning out dirt and removing flakes from your scalp. They strip your hair and scalp of lipids, which are a natural water barrier that protects the follicle from chemicals and pathogens. They also cause your follicles to become stressed and can leave your hair susceptible to breakage, dryness and frizz. Fortunately, sulfate-free shampoos do the work of cleansing your hair without damaging it or compromising its health and elasticity. These sulfate-free cleaners often include mild surfactants, such as Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine and Sodium Cocoul Isethionate (a coconut oil-derived cleanser), which gently but effectively remove buildup of dirt, oil and sulfates from your scalp. So, if you’re looking for a good shampoo that doesn’t contain sulfates, you always have plenty of options!
