The 25 Top-Rated Sulfate-Free Shampoos for Healthier Hair

Sulfate-free shampoo is a healthy move for your hair: detergent free, these gentler formulas won’t strip your hair of moisture, decimate nutrients, or dry out colored, curly, or wavy hair.

The problem? Sulfate-free shampoos are detergent free. Wait, what? Yes, that’s both the benefit and the problem: no detergent reduces a shampoo’s lathering power, which in turn can make it tough to truly clean your locks.

Well, that’s the complaint. But the following 25 sulfate-free shampoos on our list actually work. And work well, to boot. So you can cleanse and clean your hair, without stripping it of the nutrients, moisture, and health you crave. No dry shampoo required.
