Sulphates are chemical detergents. These are used in most shampoos. Their job is to cleanse the scalp thoroughly. They lather well and that’s how one feels it has cleansed well. But on the other hand they also leave the scalp and hair feeling very dry as they also wash off the natural oils. This may give rise to itching on the scalp and flaking in some individuals. It also weathers the hair and leaves it looking lustreless.
