Speckled Podcast: Sulfates & Lorean Cairns of Fox & Jane

Beauty, Podcast

Speckled Podcast is a beauty podcast that explores the science behind the beauty industry by looking at what’s actually inside popular beauty products. Each episode explores a different trending ingredient by talking to industry professionals and getting their expert advice. What are these ingredients? What’s the history behind them? And, ultimately, are these ingredients good or bad?

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.
