Getting away from the SLS nasties...
April 28, 2014
In an effort to get away from the yucky SLS components in shampoo and body wash, I turned to Kiss My Face and PureFormulas for an answer. Got one with this KMF Green Tea and Lime flavor. While it doesn't strip and super-clean my hair like the shampoos with SLS, it does seem to do a pretty good job. Maybe once a week I'll repeat the wash/rinse cycle, particularly after bike rides or when sunscreen was involved in the prior activities. I can't put my finger on the fragrance; but I reckon I detect a bit of lime...certainly not objectionable to me or DW. It may be too late to save my hair from the ravages of old age; but I do find my skin(particularly my forehead) to be less dry and even sometimes flaky after using this shampoo vs the SLS stuff from the past.
I'm also using two different flavors in body wash from KMF...that's another review...those are some serious fragrances for sure!
Note the packaging was a little different from the picture...a white-ish, opaque pump bottle came in my order. No worries other than not being able to easily determine the amount of product left in the bottle.
Pros:Seems to dry my skin MUCH less than my previous shampoos.., even some of the relatively expensive salon products contain SLS
Cons:Not a real CON, but don't expect super-cleaning results from this product like you might get from clarifying-type shampoos...sometimes a repeat cycle is necessary to get squeaky clean.
