The importance of a Healthy Scalp and the link to Hair Loss.

You probably see advertisements every day for Shampoos and Conditioners that will supposedly give you beautiful, healthy hair. If your hair is dry, there’s a conditioner for that… If it’s too oily, you can fix it with a shampoo… Got dandruff? You can take care of it in the shower!

But the truth is that the condition of your hair could have more to do with your Scalp than your realize – You can’t have healthy hair without a healthy scalp, and infact an unhealthy, inflamed scalp can actually prevent healthy hair growth.
Most Shampoos on the market contain Sulphates that can irritate the Scalp, the most common being Sodium Laureth Sulphate. Sodium Laureth Sulphate, or Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulphate (SLES), is an anionic detergent and surfactant found in many personal care products (soaps, shampoos, toothpaste etc.). SLES is an inexpensive and very effective foaming agent. SLES, SLS, ALS and Sodium Pareth Sulphate are surfactants that are used in many cosmetic products for their cleansing and emulsifying properties. They behave similarly to soap.

SLES is an irritant like many other detergents, with the irritation increasing with concentration. It has also been shown that SLES causes eye or skin irritation in experiments done on animals and humans. The related surfactant SLS is a known irritant, and research suggests that SLES can also cause irritation after extended exposure in some people.

At The Brighton Hair Loss Clinic we supply all of our clients with a Sulphate Free Shampoo: The Papilla Stimulating Shampoo. It is free from harsh ingredients such as Sodium Laureth Sulphate and will improve the condition of the Scalp in just a few weeks.
