I was curious when I saw that Jane Carter had come out with a sulfate-free shampoo. (One would think her line is completely sulfate-free, but unfortunately it’s not). However, most of her line is cone, paraben and mineral oil-free. This shampoo (and most of her line) is for all curly hair types. (I’ve been using this shampoo for a couple of weeks now, and here’s the scoop:
Jane Carter Solution: Hydrating Invigorating SLS-free Shampoo $7.99
Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis Gel, Purified Water, (aqueous extracts of nettle, burdock, and rosemary), Sodium Methyl Sulfolaurate, Disodium Sulfolaurate, Sodium Sulfoacetate, Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate, Sodium Lauroyl, Sarcosinate, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Cocoamidopropyl Betaine, Disodium Lauroamphodiacetate, Glycol Stearate, Sodium PCA, Polyquaternium-7, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, PG-Propyl Silanetriol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Extract Fragrance, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Citric Acid
I separated my hair and washed it in sections following my regular routine. I do like how well this product cleaned my hair, and how clean my scalp felt. I’m not crazy about some of the ingredients, (specifically the Sulfolaurates, I can’t find much info about them) but I did like the performance of this product. It has a medium amount of slip but I don’t detangle my hair with shampoo anyway, so that didn’t bother me much. Overall, I didn’t feel much difference in my hair’s texture, and it cleaned my scalp well.
RATING: 4 Smart – Great product, (mostly) good ingredients, great price*
*As always. This product is available in the Savvy Shop
