Question? We've got you covered.

Are Sexy Hair Shampoos and Conditioners Sulfate-Free?

Sexy Hair Shampoos and Conditioners are free of SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulfate) and do not contain any other sulfates in the formulas. SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulfate) are 2 Sulfates commonly known to be harsh and potentially damaging to the vibrancy and longevity of hair color; therefore, taking them out of our products makes our shampoos and conditioners color safe. During the manufacturing process, inorganic sulfates, such as Sodium Sulfate, may be formed as a residual impurity or by-product from the combination of other raw materials and may be present in the final product at very low levels. Sulfate-Free on the label means the product is produced without intentionally added sulfates. To be precise, Sexy Hair changed its labeling from Sulfate free to free of SLS and SLES even though many completive brands choose not to do so. Sexy Hair is taking proactive steps to ensure consumers understand its shampoos and conditioners are formulated without SLS and SLES.  Packaging will be updated to reflect this information.

What are SLS and SLES?

Both are surfactants that may be found in personal care products for their foaming, cleaning and emulsifying properties. In some cases, they can cause eye or skin irritation.

What are Sulfonates?

Sulfonates are surfactants commonly used in shampoos. 

What is the difference between Sulfates and Sulfonates?

Sulfonates differ from Sulfates by their chemical bonds and the chemical reaction that occurs when added to shampoos.  In some cases, the use of some Sulfates in shampoo formulations can result in the release of alcohols or inorganic sulfates that are potential irritants to color treated hair. The use of Sulfonate-based formulations do not result in the same chemical reactions; thus avoiding the potential for irritation.

Are Sexy Hair Shampoos and Conditioners Gluten-Free?

Yes, all Sexy Hair products are Gluten-Free.

If the formulas are Gluten-Free, why do they contain wheat protein?

Sexy Hair’s products may contain Ethyltrimonim Chloride Methacrylate/Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein Copolymer. During the manufacturing process, the wheat starch is converted to wheat protein, which results in the removal of the gluten. All formulas have been tested to show less than detectable levels of gluten.

Are Sexy Hair Shampoos and Conditioners Paraben-Free?

Yes, all Sexy Hair products are Paraben Free.

Are Sexy Hair’s formulas Salt-Free?

Salt-Free means the product is produced without intentionally added salts. During the manufacturing process, salts, such as Sodium Chloride, may be formed as a residual impurity or by-product from the combination of other raw materials and may be present in the final product at very low levels. Sexy Hair is taking proactive steps to ensure consumers understand its shampoos and conditioners are formulated without added salt.  Packaging will be updated to reflect this information.
