As our hair goes through so much each and every day, from heated styling to the use of harsh or drying products, it is important to ensure that our hair cleansing routine replenishes our hair and scalp and does not strip our locks of any essential moisture.
Sulphates, once common in all shampoo formulas, have now become a cause for concern in your routine. Known to strip the hair of natural oils, leaving hair feeling dry, cleansing products infused with sulphates are now being swapped out for more gentle, sulphate-free shampoos in many routines.

If you want to take care of your locks and switch up your haircare routine, we have curated an edit of the best, and most effective, sulphate-free shampoos to help you find the perfect formula for you and your hair type.
