The Best Sulfate-Free Shampoos: 228K Reviews

Based on 227,783 Influenster Reviews

Shampoos with sulfates succeed in cleaning your hair, but they can also strip the hair of essential oils and if you have sensitive skin, it can become irritated. For those of us who dye our hair, sulfate-free shampoos are a must. Shampoos with sulfate can strip your color.

While shampoos without sulfates don't lather as much, they are just as effective for cleansing. We've found the best sulfate-free shampoos, based on more than 220K Influenster reviews.

Last year I had noticed that I was balding in certain parts of my scalp and I was so afraid. I started researching products that would help and I stumbled across SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen and Grow Shampoo.

I was really weary at first, but I remember reading that castor oil helps in hair growth. So every day for almost a year I traded in my other hair products for this shampoo and it's conditioner. I slowly started to notice the bald spots finally peak through some hair, I kept the routine up and now there are no more bald spots.

I know it sounds crazy, but this shampoo really does help! If you're losing hair because of stress, try this out, I hope you have the same results I did! ...read more

I can't even tell you how many bottles of shampoo I've purchased in my lifetime trying to find that perfect product to deal with my curly, dry hair. The money spent on this product or that product could probably pay for a new car. Throwing down the money for this product line hurt a little as it costs a little more than others, but I was desperate and I trusted the person who told me to try it. Wow! Even the shampoo slipped on and rinsed out like a conditioner! My hair has never looked this good; not even out of a salon. I can't say enough about this product. The scent is amazing, my hair responds well, the curl is controlled and bouncy, and I do not have any frizz. Hallelujah! I'm hooked. Might as well pump the product into my bathroom straight from the manufacturer because this lady is not buying anything else. Ever. ...read more

It was a miracle when I came across this stuff at the local Walmart. I had tried doing the "no-poo" thing and it just wasn't working. But I knew regular shampoos were just stripping my hair. This is a good compromise. It doesn't contain any of those hair damaging sulfates. It still lathers well like normal shampoo and my hair has never felt healthier! My hair is soft, shiny, and I don't feel like I need to wash it every single day. The price is a steal because you only need a small amount, so even with my long hair it lasts several months. I've recommended this to several friends and family and this is the only shampoo and conditioner I'll buy. ...read more

I love Shea Moisture hair products and this one is no exception! I love how their products have minimal ingredients and that the ingredients are natural. Their products contain none of the bad stuff ! No parabens, phthalates, paraffin, no mineral oil, no synthetic fragrance, no synthetic color, no sulfates and NO animal testing!

This weightless shampoo is a high quality formula. I love the texture and it makes my hair feel great. It also has an amazing long lasting scent. I have naturally curly hair and have a hard time finding products I love that go well with my hair. This is for sure one that I will keep using. I'm so happy I had to opportunity to try this in my Vox Box. ...read more

There are definitely benefits to using Organix products. I love that I can buy organic products, readily available at store like Target, Walmart, and local drug stores at an amazing price! I have been using Organix renewing Moroccan Argan oil shampoo and conditioner for a few months now and I must say, I really like these products! Not only do they smell amazing, but I have noticed an improvement in the condition of my hair. I color my hair at home so I need the added moisture that the argan oil provides. I also have to point out that using Organix products with organic ingredients, My haircolor lasts longer than if I were to use other store bought brands. Definitely recommend this brand. They have many options to choose from and I have tried many.. They're all amazing! 5 stars from me!! ...read more

This shampoo is definitely a pretty penny but I really feel like it's worth it. I can feel and see that my hair does feel thicker after using it. Some people complain that it's drying on their hair but those people also say they use it everyday, so that's not that surprising. I still shower but I can go up to 4 days without washing my hair because this shampoo eliminates all the grease in my hair. A little goes such a long way too. I literally need the size of a nickle to wash my whole head, it lathers amazingly and my hair feels squeaky clean after using it. I will be purchasing this shampoo again once I finish it because even though it's expensive I've noticed such a difference in my hair and want to try out some conditioners from LUSH now. The smell also smells amazing, like the sea, and it lasts in my hair. ...read more
