Baby sulfate free shampoo .

Hi. I started co wash before 2 weeks but my coarse dry wavy hair looks a bit greasy and it looks like slicked with gel.. Yeah it sucks.. The other problem is that i hate sulfate shampoos . So I decided to buy a sulfate-free shampoo. But in my country I didnt find any sulfate free shampoos. But I found only 1 baby shampoo that was really mild and sulfate free. Is it ok to use baby shampoo to teens hair ?

    You can if you wish but ideally not a 'no tears' shampoo, these are pH 7+ so milder on the eyes but not so mild on the skin or hair.

    If you have greasy hair right after co-washing you are doing something wrong, either a bad choice of product or poor technique. Are you using loads of products, massaging as you rinse?

    The ocular mucosa is alkaline (pH ~8 ) so any shampoo appropriate for hair (acid pH ~4.5) can sting the eyes. Bear in mind the pH scale is logarithmic so 7.5 is one thousand times more alkaline than 4.5 (10x10x10). No idea what Johnson's has to do with it, ANY 'no tears' baby shampoo is likely to be pH 7 at best so far from ideal for skin or hair.

    "Mucus pH can vary greatly depending on the mucosal surface, with highly acidic environments capable of aggregating mucin fibers and greatly increasing the mucus viscoelasticity[52, 53]. Lung and nasal mucus are in general pH neutral [54, 55], and eye mucus is slightly basic with pH ~7.8 [56]."

    "The isoelectric point for human hair optimally is a pH value of 4.0 to 4.5. Hair that is at its isoelectric point has a tight structure and a sealed flat cuticle layer on the outside of the strand. Things that can raise the pH of our hair are structural damage from processing or rough treatment; use of basic solutions on the hair such as perming solutions, relaxers, or baking soda; and soap bars or soap containing detergents. Hair at a higher pH is negatively charged, and has a more swollen and porous structure. It also has lifted, ruffled cuticles that contribute to a dull appearance, frizzy character, tendency to become tangled, and a higher propensity for breakage."

    Guys its not a " no tears" shampoo. It says that its a mild baby shampoo. I agree about Johnsons shampoo . it is good for body but it sucks for hair.. this shampoo is called " BabyCare Puris " and its parabens free,phenoxyethanol free, sulfate free and mineral oils free .
