As consumers gain more knowledge about cosmetic products, ingredients have become a determining factor as to whether we purchase a product or not. Sulfates are harsh chemicals that can strip your hair of moisture, color, and its natural oils. As a result you may experience tangles, dryness and breakage. Here are 7 sulfate-free shampoos that will keep your hair feeling clean and moisturized!

    That Burt’s Bees More Moisture Raspberry & Brazil Nut Shampoo is the devil!!! I tried that mess two weeks ago, and took it back. Within minutes of washing and rinsing my hair was crunchier than a bag of chips. It completely stripped every strand. Dripping wet, I had to apply a deep conditioner and let it sit overnight…

      I tried Burt’s Bees baby shampoo once and also found it really harsh.  It stripped every bit of oil and moisture from my hair.  I wondered what damage it would do to a baby’s hair.

    I use all of the shampoos in Shea Moisture line.  They are GOOOOD stuff!  I bought some for my daughters, one wears her natural and the other a relaxer, and they love it!  Makes your hair so soft!

    I also like the Organix Shea Shampoo in the goldish brown bottle. Smells soooo good

    Im using the Aubrey White Camelia right now and I love it. Still dries out a bit but no where as near as regular shampoo and it doesnt tangle.

  • Emme

    Carol’s Daughter’s Black Vanilla is my favorite!!! That’s the only shampoo I use.

  • I love Wen Shampoo….www.wenhaircare.com

  • Tripledub

    WEN by Chaz Dean has worked wonders for my hair.  

    • SQ7

    • Tripledub

      I thought it was just me.  If this continues, I will stop visiting this site

    • Trim this down to 2 pages

      Who wants to go through all that for 8 pages? I stopped on the fourth page. I thought this was an article for shampoos but they are really trying to sell that Lincoln.
