Sulfates are surfactants that act as a foaming agent to lift dirt off skin and hair and then dissolve it into a solution that rinses down the drain. Sulfates are very powerful and can be found in other household cleaners and laundry detergents. These sulfates can strip all of the protective oils from your hair and scalp and can cause irritation. Sulfate-Free leaves hair feeling softer and cleaner without stripping it of its natural oils.

No matter what type of hair you have, you do not need conditioner there. Roots are close to the oil glands and that's plenty of lubrication. Besides, roots don't get damaged like the rest of the tresses. Apply conditioner at the nape of your neck and work up and through hair, concentrating on the ends. DO make sure you completely coat your ends with conditioner. DO rinse with cool water to help seal the cuticle and lock in more shine.
From blow-drying to coloring, from flat irons to swimming, we all do things that are damaging and dulling to our hair.

Co-washing is short for "conditioner-only washing." It means skipping shampoo and relying solely on conditioner, whether you're a daily or a weekly washer.
