Finally, you’ll likely find some relief from scalp irritation. Yates explains that sulfates can be particularly damaging for anyone with sensitive skin, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, or other inflammatory skin conditions.
Another bonus: Your eyes will likely be less irritated as well, given that sulfates can easily create that burning sensation when a bit of shampoo travels off your scalp.
Give your hair at least six washes to adjust and utilize tools, like leave-in products and clarifying shampoos, in the meantime.
While the transition time may not be ideal, it will be well worth it in the end. “Sulfate-free formulas are usually organic and healthier for not only your scalp and hair but for your body as a whole,” Yates says.
