If you haven’t already switched over to Sulfate-free shampoos, it might be a good idea! Sodium Laureth or Lauryl Sulfate are toxic chemicals used in shampoos and soaps to help them “foam-up.” But that lovely lather is misconceived because sulfates actually dry out hair damaging the hair follicle. Who wants toxic chemicals in their everyday beauty routine? Not me! Aside from damaging your precious tresses, if you have color-treated or highlighted hair, sulfate can also cause your color to fade faster and turn brassy rather than brilliant.

Sulfate-free shampoos are not only less damaging and more moisturizing but they are also safe for color-treated hair, making color last longer in between dye jobs. Below are my absolute favorite sulfate-free picks to keep your hair clean, minus all of the bad stuff.
