7 Sulfate-Free Hair-Care Products Worth TryingFebruary 11, 2021
Sulfates are commonly used in shampoos to make them lather or foam, but some research indicates that they may not be the healthiest for your hair. Sulfates have been shown to strip natural oils from the hair, resulting in dryness, make hair color fade faster, cause breakage and irritate the scalp. If you want to avoid the ingredient category, there are plenty of sulfate-free options to choose from. Here, we rounded up our favorites.
