Sulfates are everywhere!

Since I made the decision to stop flat ironing my hair on a regular basis, I have also stopped using shampoos with sulfates. Now I have become obsessed with reading the ingredients on products I use and foods I eat. One day, I decided to look at what was in my body wash and facial cleanser. One of the first ingredients on both was Sodium Lauryeth Sulfate. I had an "aha" moment after that because whenever I wash my face or take a bath, my skin is always irritated or dry. I always thought I had really dry skin, and always had to apply tons of lotion. But after reading the ingredients I realized that if sulfates make my hair dry, then they must be doing the same to my skin.
Now I will be making the switch to sulfate free body products as well.
