Sulfur 8 is a range of hair care products consisting of shampoos, conditioners, hair oils and braid butters used by people of African descent with highly textured hair. Sulfur 8 is useful in preventing seborrheic dermatitis and lice. It heals and relieves itchy scalps, while conditioning to aid hair growth. Sulfur 8 ingredients include 2 percent active sulfur, inactive lanolin, petrolatum, mineral oil and menthol.

Prevents Lice

The original Sulfur 8 medicated formula was created in 1948. Since then the company has produced a wide range of products to suit your individual needs. Hair Studio Lavibelle Hair Design listed Sulfur 8 Medicated Original and Light Formulas as an effective lice treatment. According to Lavibelle Hair Design, Sulfur 8, when used regularly, stops lice from laying eggs in your hair. Sulfur 8 is also helpful in preventing dandruff. The medicated menthol formula produces a pleasant tingly, refreshing sensation when applied to your scalp. It soothes and heals scalp irritation, while easing itchiness associated with a dry scalp. Sulfur 8 is also known to be effective in treating and preventing dandruff, keeping your scalp healthy to promote hair growth.

Conditions

Braids offer an attractive alternative to loose hairstyles, and can act as a protective style, giving your hair a break from everyday styling. If you neglect to keep your scalp oiled and lubricated, it can become dry and flaky. The Sulfur 8 Original Formula, although effective as a conditioner, is too heavy to use on braided styles. In such cases, you can use the Braid Spray. It’s not only useful in treating braided hair, Sulfur 8 Braid Spray helps keep locked and twisted hairstyles healthy. A Cosmetic Bay review suggested that Sulfur 8 Braid Spray could help prevent split ends from forming while removing braids and extensions. Sulfur 8 Braid Spray is also excellent at keeping dandruff at bay. The light conditioner softens and moisturizers your hair, to keep it hydrated, well groomed, soft and bouncy.

Cleanses

A clean scalp is vital for healthy hair and sustained growth and Sulfur 8 Shampoo provides the perfect cleansing tool for highly textured hair. This rich, deeply cleansing shampoo is ideal in removing oil, dirt and debris from deep within the pores of your scalp. Like the other Sulfur 8 products, Sulfur 8 Shampoo prevents dandruff and excessive flaking. The Children’s Shampoo and Conditioner formula is gentle enough to use on infant and children’s delicate hair and scalp, between the ages of 2 and 12, without causing irritation. The shampoo cleanses without stripping away your hair’s natural oils, and is perfect for all textures, leaving hair feeling soft and manageable.
