You finally did it, you got your hair coloured! Whether it’s the first time or the fifteenth time, it’s always a transformative experience, and an expensive one at that. Make the most out of the dollars you drop by taking care of your hair with sulphate-free shampoo for healthier hair - coloured or not.
What are sulphates?
Before anything else, let’s discuss what sulphates are the ingredients behind shampoo’s lathering ability. Yes, that bubbly, fun experience you had when you were a kid? That’s thanks to sulphates. It attracts dirt and build-up and leaves the hair squeaky clean.
However, this also means that sulphates can strip your hair of its natural oils and artificial colour pigment, leaving it dry, faded, and damaged.
Why go sulphate-free?
So does this mean you have to sacrifice having clean hair and scalp for a healthier and more vibrant colour?
The short answer is no.
Sulphate-free shampoo has been on the market for a while now and most, if not all, formulations provide the same cleansing benefits of a sulphate shampoo without the damage it causes. Here are 8 of our favourite Sulphate Free Shampoos.
