Experts would say that switching to a sulfate-free shampoo is the best absolute move for most hair types, since they're color-safe and preserve natural hair oils.
But of course, there's a catch! Due to the lack of (harmful) sulfates, the lather is reduced, making it tougher for natural products to remove dirt and oil (some even recommend shampooing two and three times!).
Alas, there are a few sulfate-free shampoos on the market that actually do what they say—and so much more! Here a few shampoos you should add to your hair regimen!
For Color-Treated Hair:
Kerastase Bain Chroma Riche- If it's already sulfate-free it's guaranteed to be safer for your precious color, but when it can make your highlights look even better than before it's a real keeper. This will help transform your dry strands into the softer and shinier version of themselves.
For Greasy Hair and Bad Buildup
Acure Organics Lemongrass and Argan Stem Cell Shampoo- It's not often that you hear of beauty products produced with *plant stem cells*, but that's the calling card of the Acure Organics line. Designed with unique natural extracts, we love this tea-tree oil shampoo for the way it banishes grease and eases scalp irritation.
For Frizzy Hair:
Briogeo Curl Charisma Rice Amino and Shea Moisture Shampoo- A godsend for thicker, curly hair types, Briogeo's Curl Charisma shampoo uses a blend of natural oils and vegetable extracts to seal the hair cuticle, taming frizz and softening strands to the touch.
Kevin Murphy Hydrate Me Wash-Nothing comes close to smelling as fresh and fragrant as Kevin Murphy's shampoos. But it's the blend of vitamins, oils, and shea butter that really seal the deal, especially if you've got the kind of dry, stringy hair that needs a little more TLC.
For Smooth & Sleek Strands
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Shampoo-Don't let the idea of putting extra oil on your greasy roots stop you from trying this best-selling shampoo. If you're down for a combo of sudsing action and serious nourishing, look to this blend of *six* oils to give you the silky, shiny hair you only see on commercials.
