Inspiration Sulfate Free Shampoo Review

I think the one area that we spend the most money on ourselves is our hair.  I know I am vain in that area, comes from years of cosmetology I suppose.  Out of all hair supplies that we spend the least on is probably shampoo and conditioner and yet we get the least benefits.  The one thing we fail to realize is we do not have to spend a lot of money on shampoos, we just need to buy the right shampoos.    

A lot of the shampoos out there are harsh, drying, and they strip the hair of vital oils that our hair needs to look vibrant, glossy, and wonderful.  When they strip the natural oils your hair becomes dry, brittle, and let's admit it, unmanageable.  This is where they can sell you their conditioners, because you will need them after using their shampoos.  IE:  PERT  Pert has been around as long as I can remember, I would have thought at one point that this meant is was good.  What did I know?  Harsh reality came about in Cosmetology school.  They taught us about acid and alkalinity.  They showed us how Pert has a high alkalinity.  Now catch this, when you get your hair permed, most perms are made of alkaline, that is what breaks down your hair to curl.   To prove their point we actually used Pert in exchange of the perming solutions on a students hair.  Yep, you guessed it, it went from straight to the rod size curl, and it actually lasted about a week.  

So when you use Pert and other shampoos with the higher alkalinity contents, it is like treating your hair to a perm every day you wash it!!!  OUCH!  

Then we look at the conditioners that can help our hair feel and possibly look better.  Catch there too??  Of course, I mean the companies out there want your business and so they have to offer you something to supposedly help your hair if their shampoo is stripping it.   But, what are they really offering you?   If you are not watching your ingredients your hair will be getting a wax treatment to help smooth those ends and temporarily make them look repaired.  Ever wonder why they say to clarify your hair every so often, it is to remove the product and wax build up.  There are other reasons, but you wouldn't need the clarifying as often, unless you are a swimmer.  

So after learning all this you are probably wondering what to look for.  I found a great shampoo!!   
Sweet Nature by Eddie has come out with a great shampoo called Inspiration.  Inspiration is a sulfate free shampoo offering many different carrying oils to help replenish the moisture into your hair.   With ingredients such as Jojoba oil, Avocado oil, Wheat Germ oil, Olive oil and Raw honey, your hair will fell luxuriously soft and clean.  They use other ingredients derived from natural sources to help clean with out stripping.  The oils will help soften and repair your hair.   

Inspiration is natural, clean, and smells wonderful!!  I highly recommend it, I know I love it!!
