The best sulfate free shampoos manage to clean hair effectively without stripping color and/or natural oils. What are the best sulfate free shampoos? Switching to a shampoo that is free of Sodium Lauryl and Laureth Sulfates can potentially help your hair hold color much longer than it normally would. Yes, the SLS does increase lather in the shampoo, so that takes a bit of getting used to - but many of the sulfate free shampoos on this list do, in fact, lather well. The brands on this sulfate free shampoo list are some of the best, most effective sulfate free shampoos on the market right now. Agree? Vote the shampoo up! And if you've tried, and absolutely hated, one of these sulfate free shampoo brands, be sure to vote it down.

Here's the thing with using a sulfate free shampoo: you have to do your homework. Read the label on the shampoo bottle and make sure it clearly says "sulfate free." Next, check the ingredients and be certain that you don't see "Sodium Lauryl" or "Sodium Laureth Sulfates." Due diligence is key when finding a great sulfate free shampoo.

Another potential benefit of switching to an SLS free shampoo: if you have very dry/damaged hair, the shampoo will be less harsh. Also, some people with sensitive skin or a sensitive scalp could benefit from a switch. The fewer chemicals, the better. On this list, are several no sulfate shampoo brands. Some of these lines include sulfate free shampoos for fine hair, dry hair, color-treated hair and the like. Be sure to select a sulfate free shampoo that fits your needs.

If you've got a sulfate free shampoo that you simply can't do without, definitely comment on this list! Everyone's looking for that magic shampoo that has few chemicals and still manages to make hair look amazing.
