Sulfate-free shampoo has risen in popularity in recent years. While many shampoos proudly label “Sulfate-Free” on their bottles, one should wonder how dangerous it is to use shampoo that does include sulfate as an ingredient. The reality is that the majority of shampoos still contain sulfates. This chemical compound has a unique ability to strip dirt and oil from your hair and carry it down the drain when you wash it out, and is safe at very low concentrations. It is so widely used because it cleanses well, but some argue it cleanses too well, stripping your hair of nourishing oils completely. If you struggle to keep your hair hydrated with serums and sprays, you should consider finding a sulfate-free shampoo.
The Keranique Scalp Stimulating Shampoo is formulated without sulfates, and of course, is perfect for women who struggle with hair loss. That’s why Marie Claire included it in their list of the Twelve Best Sulfate-Free Shampoos that Actually Get the Job Done. Marie Claire writes, “This shampoo has an unusual gel texture, but it seems to sit in strands longer and soak into hair better (like a mask). It helps to fight frizz even on the most humid days and comes enriched with hydrolyzed keratin, a protein that repairs serious breakage and hair damage.”
