Sulfates, particularly sodium lauryl and laureth sulfate are the ingredients in standard shampoos that are billed as the cleansing agents that make your hair squeaky clean. They create the lather that has long been associated with a deep, down clean. The problem with sulfates is that they can severely dry out the hair and the scalp, ultimately causing thinning and hair loss.
This sulfate free shampoo comes from the company that brought you the Big Sexy Hair product line, which is all about getting the biggest, most beautiful hair that you can. You’ll notice the product thanks to its signature glossy, “big, red” can as product packaging. They ventured into the sulfate free area with the Sexy Hair Concepts Healthy Sexy Hair Chocolate Soy Milk Shampoo. Part of its “healthy” hair line, this shampoo is a very gentle cleanser that adds strength to your strands as you cleanse, leaving nothing but smooth, clean hair and the scent of heavenly chocolate. This is a good line for someone who has damaged hair in dire need of repair as not only do the lack of sulfates prevent further damage, but the protein in the product helps repair broken strands. Used with the accompanying conditioner, users say that they end up with hair that not only feels and looks good and is well moisturized.
This shampoo is made by the ABBA company, whose philosophy is based in making all natural, plant based products that actually work.

Their “prescriptive” approach to hair care helps them create products that people can use to treat any ailment.
