Best Sulfate Free Shampoo

With shampoo labels touting so many things, it’s hard to keep track of what we should and shouldn’t be putting on our hair. “Sulfate free” has become a beauty buzzword and for good reason. Sulfates are what make cleaners such as shampoos turn sudsy. While they work well for household cleaners, they can be rough on your hair and skin, stripping natural oils away and causing irritation. If your hair is dry and brittle or if you have any itchy scalp, you may want to switch to a sulfate free shampoo to help hydrate and soothe your head. We’ve rounded up a list of our favorites.
