Many people prefer to take a sulfate-free hair care approach these days, and luckily, there are now many effective options for those who want to cleanse their hair with shampoos without sulfates. Here’s an overview of available formulas, along with guidance from the pros at Matrix for choosing the best sulfate-free formula for your hair.

4 Shampoos Without Sulfates to Try

If your hair is fine: Biolage R.A.W. Uplift Shampoo

The R.A.W. collection features natural-origin ingredients that are defined as unchanged from their natural state or have undergone processing yet still retain greater than 50% of their molecular structure from the original plant or mineral source. This sulfate-free shampoo purifies flat, fine hair without stripping it, and produces an airy, lightweight body.

One of the standouts in the sulfate-free R.A.W. collection, this shampoo treats stressed, over-worked hair with a blend of revitalizing yucca and goji berry. Like all R.A.W. formulas, it’s not only sulfate-free, but also free of parabens, silicones and artificial colourants.

If your hair is thirsty and dull: Biolage R.A.W. Nourish Shampoo

Dryness depletes hair of its natural shine and lustre, which does no favours for any hairstyle or for any hair colour for that matter. R.A.W. Nourish sulfate-free shampoo sources quinoa husk and honey to feed parched hair, adding the moisture and nutrients it needs to return to its original state of shining glory.
