Burt's Bees Shampoo

morningstarmorningstar Posts: 144Registered Users Curl Connoisseur
I was looking for an alternative to Coppola shampoo for my BKT hair. I picked up some Burt's Bees Super Shiny grapefruit shampoo, but noticied that one of the last ingredients listed is sodium chloride. I know some of you are using this with your BKT hair - is it because it is so low on the ingredient list that its okay? I am nervous now to try it.

    It's always near the bottom in almost any hair product. I personally wouldn't use any product where it was an ingredient. I saw it in L'oreal Everpure, too, and I know of one person here who used it, then complained about her BKT only lasting a month.

    Thanks Ghost Poster for replying. I guess I am going to return it and maybe try Pureology. I'm not crazy over the Coppola shampoo - are there any other choices out there?

    This is to weird, the Super Shiny I get here does not list Sodium Chloride listed!! Isn't that strange?
    But never the less I changed to Burt Bees More Moisture. I also use a brand called Jason's that I get at my Organic store. No sulfates or Sodium.

    Hi, AD...glad to see you back! I read your blog...hope all is well.

    morningstar, I worded that incorrectly...it's not near the bottom in *any* hair product. That makes it sound like it's in all hair products! What I'm struggling so desperately to say is that IF it *is* an ingredient in a hair product, then it's always near the bottom. I hope that makes sense. I'm so inarticulate sometimes...sorry for any confusion.

    Thanks girls for the info and clarification. I emailed Burt's Bees and they did confirm that it was in the super shiny shampoo and offered to send me a new product as a replacement. I like that type of customer service! I haven't decided on a new product yet, maybe I'll ask them about the Moisture one. I have seen Jason's at my health food store -so I can also check them out to see if they have the shampoo. Thanks again!

    I was using L'oreal Everpure before and my bkt only lasted about a month and a half before I had to redo it. I feel so stupid, I should have read the label more carefully.

    It would be great if we could have a sticky for products known to be ok with bk treatments. It would make it a lot easier to have one thread everyone can refer to. I'm also confused about styling products? Is it just the sulfates/ sodium in shampoo we have to worry about? And are there other forms of sodium besides sodium choride that we need to avoid?

    I feel the same way on both points.

    A sticky for treatment safe shampoos and conditioners would be great.

    And I'm confused about products also. My scalp gets really dry and I usually use an oil spray on my scalp. I have no idea if it's treatment safe or not.

    Thank you! I'm going to print this out. So frustrating trying to read through all the shampoo ingredients in the store.

    I don't go through shampoo very fast so one of these should last a long time. I'm no long obsessed with hair products like I used to be. I hated spending time on my hair but it made a huge difference so I did it. I don't miss that at all.

    I had gotten the super shiny before and it didn't have sodium chloride in it and then I went to buy more the other day I noticed it did, so I rechecked my bottle at home and I was right it didn't have any. While I was at whole foods today, there was a clear bottle and a frosted bottle of super shiny shampoo and the frosted one didn't have sodium chloride as an ingredient. Maybe they recently changed the formula?
