Just like a good face wash can set the tone for the rest of your skincare routine, using the correct type of shampoo can help improve the health of your hair. Whilst the job of a shampoo is to effectively cleanse your scalp and strands, many formulas tend to strip your mane of its natural oils. To prevent this from happening, it’s best to avoid sulfates i.e. the foaming agents that are found in many products. Whilst these ingredients create a bubbly lather, they also dry out your tresses over time. To help you pick the right formula, we’ve curated a list of the best sulfate-free shampoos for every type of hair.

1. Moroccanoil Hydrating Shampoo

If you are dealing with parched and crunchy tresses, this is the bottle to invest in. Infused with argan oil and red algae, this moisturising shampoo works to soften and nourish hair. The formula is gentle enough to be used daily, so you can use it without any worries.
