    Say no to sulphate

    Many shampoos contain sodium lauryl sulphate, a detergent known to remove oil from hair. It is easy to mistake it for an advantage, but you shouldn’t because sulphate harbouring shampoos often strip your hair of essential natural oils that keep your hair healthy and hydrated, leaving them dull and dry. Therefore, opt for shampoos that are sulphate-free. Image source: Getty
