Did you know that the really foamy lather produced by your shampoo is due to sulfates within the ingredients of the Shampoo and could actually be damaging your hair and scalp?
Okay so what are Sulfates and why does this matter?
Well firstly whilst sulfates help to clean hair they also strip hair of its natural oils and can make your hair dry. The more you lather the ends the more likely they are to become brittle and break. On top of this sulfates can cause dandruff and damage your scalp, causing irritation and if you don’t rinse the shampoo properly the sulfates can build up and make your hair oily.
You normally find sulfates in cleaning home cleaning products and the most prominent sulfates in many shampoos are Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), the most popular and strongest, and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES). Other sulfates that may be used are Sodium Myreth Sulfate, TEA Laureth Sulfate, and Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate.
So many health experts recommend switching to a non-sulfate shampoo range. It may take a few washes to adapt to the feel of the lower lather but knowing you are really looking after your hair and not damaging it make up for a few less bubbles!
At Rossano Ferretti, we have created an amazing range of products, which were conceived and developed by the famous International hairdresser, Rossano Ferretti himself.
All of which are produced in Italy and combine the best natural ingredients, with the latest ‘bio-technology’ and are totally sulfate-free and “Proudly Low Foam”. This means that you can expect less bubbles and a lighter lather but thanks to the amazing technology you can get a gentle approach to cleaning the hair, that ensures the hair is clean but without that harsh chemical “hair squeak.”
It won’t take long until you can feel an amazing difference in the quality of your hair.
So we say “Down with Lather and harsh Chemicals” and let’s all be “Proudly Low Foam”
This is why many beauty experts and top retailers and magazines are now recommending the Rossano Ferretti Parma hair care range.

Many and rich are the associations enjoyed by the edible oil pressed from the fruit thought to have originated in South Central Mexico – the Persea Americana or Persea Grattissima, more popularly known as the avocado.
As one of the few edible oils not to be derived from seeds, but instead pressed from the fleshy pulp surrounding the avocado pit, avocado oil enjoys many untypical qualities that have won it considerable renown.
Especially notable is a high smoke point, in the oil’s unrefined but especially its refined form. Meanwhile, in the world of exclusive cuisine, the oil is widely recognised as an effective carrier oil for other flavours. Rich in monounsaturated fats, proteins, vitamins, potassium and other minerals, avocado oil is universally vaunted as a superfood.
Then, there are the applications of the oil for sustaining the very best hair health. One does not choose avocado oil simply for such elementary nutritional benefits as the softening of the skin, the lowering of blood pressure or the improved absorption of nutrients.
That’s because any one discerning individual may select avocado oil instead for principal use as a trusted solution for the prevention of hair loss and the promotion of sustained hair growth.
An oil serving as a foundation for healthier hair
However rich in vitamins and minerals one can imagine any hair product to be, as well as however impactful, it would appear that avocado oil really does have it all – and in some style.
Those seeking a hair care solution plentiful in the vitamins E and B, on account of the depth at which they penetrate into the epidermis to the service of stronger hair, are sure to be more than enchanted by the effectiveness of this marvellous oil.
Vitamin E has long been acclaimed for its impact in the repair of existing hair damage, while vitamin B aids ongoing hair growth. But as will seemingly ever be the case with avocado oil, there is more – there is always more.
We speak, of course, of the nourishment and strengthening of hair strands that typically results from their contact with the monounsaturated fats that are also integral to avocado oil. We refer, too, to the presence of vitamins D and H, deficiencies of which have been observed in many a sufferer of hair loss.
The fact is that avocado oil does and should matter to anyone looking to safeguard truly impeccable hair health – all the more reason why it has long been a subject of our intense and studied admiration here at Rossano Ferretti.
A hair care ingredient of luxury, beauty and fascination
The story of the origins of avocado and its attendant oil is no less captivating than its well-documented benefits for the demanding individuals wishing to bring its benefits to bear in maintaining the utmost health of their hair.
While much dispute reigns as to the site of the avocado fruit’s first emergence, connections have been commonly drawn to the Tehuacan Valley in the state of Puebla, Mexico. The word “avocado” derives from the Spanish aguacate, which has its own origins in the Nahuatl word āhuacatl.
The avocado tree grows to 20 metres or 66 feet and is intolerant of freezing temperatures, frost or strong wind, only growing in subtropical or tropical climates. An average of seven tonnes per hectare is produced each year, with as many as 20 tonnes per hectare achieved by some orchards.
Avocado trees can also be grown indoors, usually from the pit of an avocado fruit. Mexico is by far the most prolific of the world’s avocado-growing countries, with its production outstripping that of the second largest-producing country several-fold. However, California, Peru, Dominican Republic and Indonesia also offer conditions conducive to avocado growth.
It is when avocado production complies with the highest standards of sustainability and social responsibility that the fruit is especially suitable for the extraction of its truly remarkable oil for use in the finest of shampoos.
A product showcasing the finest qualities of this celebrated oil
Here at Rossano Ferretti, we are delighted to confirm our use of Persea Gratissima avocado oil in our highly luxurious, intense and proudly foam-free Intenso shampoo that has attracted particular acclaim for its professional performance in the disciplining of unruly, frizzy and tangled hair.
When you are seeking to draw upon the maximum power of avocado oil in the restructuring and moisturisation of the hair and scalp, right down to the revival of damaged hair and the enhanced softness and silkiness with which even the healthiest-looking existing hair can be imbued, there is simply no better choice for you to make than our Intenso softening and smoothing shampoo.

Summer is magic, especially if you spend it at the seaside, sunbathing on the beach or swimming in the pool. But exposure to sun, wind, chlorine and salt can leave its mark on your hair. Also, have you ever considered that often we use cheaper shampoos and basic hairdryers when we are on holiday, maybe the ones that are available in the hotel? That’s why, by the end of summer, you have super thirsty locks.
When your hair is this damaged, it’s pointless to restart the daily routine with a normal shampoo and conditioner: first of all, you need to repair your hair.
So here are some key tips to nurture your hair at home:
First of all, you need a specific product capable of regenerating your hair, such as ‘Prodigio’, the deeply reconstructing professional hair treatment by Rossano Ferretti, a rich cream able to repair the worst of the summer damage. You will be astonished by the smoothness, when you will glide your fingers through your hair! Also your hair’s shine, which is likely to have been dulled by all the sun and fun, will re-awaken its original vividness.
You will also enjoy the extraordinary texture of this treatment, made from precious and rare natural ingredients such as Amaranthus seed Oil, Oryza Sativa Rice Starch, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil and other exotic natural components, which are some of the "greenest" conditioning agents in the world. And be prepared for one of the most irresistible fragrances you’ve ever experienced!
Prodigio treatment is a pre-wash, meaning you apply before you shampoo your hair. simple to use with just the help of your hands to distribute it through damp hair. Just leave it in for 5-10 minutes before proceeding with shampoo and… be prepared for the most gorgeous after-summer look ever!
Second, investing in an high quality hairdryer is a good way to achieve your goals for your beauty routine: it helps to prevent split ends and to reduce frizzy and dull hair. You deserve a great head of hair!
Third, if you like a natural hairstyle, here’s a piece of advice for an ultimate hair preservation. Avoid blowdrying and let your hair dry naturally, wrapped into a soft ultra-absorbent bamboo-fiber turban.
Last advice and sorry, no surprise: you should eat a healthy and balanced diet. This is the secret to everything, we know it, but we still forget. So, take a look in your fridge and be sure it’s full of fresh water, seasonal and ideally organic vegetables and fruits!
There we are: by following these simple tips you will allow your hair to shine and be nourished and soft again.
Finally, you know…hair is essential, but so are dreams inside our head!
When summer comes to end, we can’t help dreaming of the next trip, enjoying the bittersweet melancholy of the scents slipping away into the summer breeze.
A tip to travel without moving? It’s Philippe Claudel’s Perfumes: a catalogue of remembered smells, an original olfactory memoir made by a collection of moments from the life of the French author. Through the fading aromas of the past, you will be surrounded by fragments of humour, insight and intangible beauty.
Because – as Baudelaire used to say - fragrances can be vessels to take us to undiscovered imaginary places.
