Hair Benefits of Sodium:
Sodium Chloride or Table Salt has hair benefits too. Due to various properties present in it, this natural salt is an important ingredient in shampoos, conditioners, and other hair products to increase the thickness of these products. It further enables these products especially shampoos and conditioners to rinse out better during washing of your hair. But an excess of sodium chloride is not healthy too as it can strip the natural oil of the hair and makes the scalp dry and itchy.
Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda):
Sodium Bicarbonate has great cleansing properties. It can be mixed with shampoo, water or conditioner to clarify the hair. It is advised to go for a baking soda hair wash if you are willing to have clean hair. It effectively cleans hair by removing impurities and excess products. You can use it as a dry shampoo to remove the sebum which is an oily substance usually secreted by the skin.
Sodium Laureth Sulphate:
Sodium Laureth Sulphate or SLS has been derived from coconut oil. This compound is considered as safe and gentle for skin and hair applications. The most important thing about SLS is that it has tough action on the dirt and impurities which are very common due to heavy pollution and it does not cause any side effects or irritation. Due to this reason this compound is most common in various types of hair, skin and beauty products.
