If you have normal, healthy hair, then using a shampoo that contains sulfates is a matter of preference. If you just don’t feel clean without lots of suds, then look for less irritating sulfates. The least irritating sulfate is Sodium Myreth Sulfate, followed by TEA Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. The most likely to irritate is Ammonia Laureth Sulfate. Just be sure to condition hair after shampoo.
If you decide sulfate-free is for you, you don't need to worry about finding one that will work for your hair. Our Top 10 list includes moisturizing, volume, color protection, restore and even a weekly clarifying shampoo - all without sulfates. Take a look!
