Sulfates with Lorean Cairns of Fox & Jane

Podcast cover
Read more
This episode looks at sulfates and their role in haircare, specifically shampoos. Sulfates act as a foaming agent that cleanses away impurities on our hair shaft and scalp, but in the past few years, they have gained a bad rap in the beauty industry for their habit to strip away good oils and color. We sat down with Lorean Cairns, Co-founder and Creative Director of Fox & Jane Salons to hear her experience with sulfates as a salon owner and experienced hair stylist.
