I know that sodium lauryl sulfates are bad, however, I've seen magnesium lauryl sulfates and chromium lauryl sulfates listed in shampoo ingredients as well. Are they bad for your hair too?

Chromium? That's interesting. It is toxic at high concentrations.

The irritating bit is the lauryl part of the molecule, so yes, they are all equally bad except for the chromium, which is MUCH worse!

Hannah,

What about sodium LAUROYL sulphate? it's so confusing the way many companies use ingredients that sound so similar, but are marketed to be different (maybe they really are??) thanks.

It is probably a deliberate typo to confuse people trying to avoid SLS.
