Nowadays, people are swapping their go-to shampoo and conditioner for alternatives with a shorter label. What we mean is, more and more individuals are opting for beauty products with fewer ingredients—and the paraben free hair care trend is a testament to that. According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, parabens are preservatives commonly used in cosmetics (like your shampoo and conditioner) to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and mold. But with the minimal ingredient beauty craze in full swing, some are choosing to ditch parabens and use paraben free shampoos. Want to take part in this beauty trend? Below, we’re sharing our best paraben free shampoo and conditioner, as well as a bit about why you may want to consider a sulfate and paraben free shampoo.

2 MORE CHANGES TO CONSIDER FOR YOUR HAIR CARE ROUTINE
Looking to overhaul your hair care routine in more than one way? We have two tips you may want to try!
1. USE OTHER PARABEN FREE HAIR CARE PRODUCTS
This may seem pretty obvious, but our first clean hair care tip is to use other hair care products that are paraben-free. Aside from shampoo and conditioner, consider hunting for a hair treatment or serum. One paraben free hair care product we’re a huge fan of? The L’Oréal Paris EverPure Cleansing Balm! This cleansing conditioner offers six benefits in one handy product. The conditioner transforms into a gentle cleanser for a low-lather cleansing that cleans, conditions, treats, detangles, softens, and adds shine. The formula is paraben-free, sulfate-free, and silicone-free. Use it in place of your conditioner, applying six to eight pumps to wet hair. Massage gently and distribute evenly throughout your mane until fully saturated, leave on three to five minutes, then rinse thoroughly.
2. TRY GOING SULFATE-FREE
We mentioned that our best paraben-free shampoos are also sulfate-free, but you may want to try a completely sulfate-free routine! Quick refresher: Sulfates are common hair care ingredients that produce a lathering effect and remove dirt and debris from hair by creating a rich lather (aka suds). Today, sulfate-free options are increasingly easy to find. Besides using a sulfate and paraben free shampoo, you can find sulfate-free hair masks, serums, and more to add to your routine. Below, we’re sharing a few of our favorites sulfate-free products.
L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Shade Reviving Treatment: Have blonde, color-treated hair? This hair mask for blonde hair is a must for your regimen. The color-refreshing mask instantly neutralizes unwanted brassiness while intensely nourishing over-processed hair. Pair it with the L'Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Conditioner.
L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Frizz Finish Oil-In-Serum: Need a hair serum? Consider this sulfate-free option. Formulated with a luxurious blend of argan oil and flower oils, this lightweight serum helps to tame frizz and flyaways, detangle, and smooth each strand of your mane. It’s a must for summer frizz! Try using it with the L'Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Conditioner.
L’Oréal Paris EverFresh Micro-Exfoliating Scrub: You know about the importance of using a face scrub, but what about a scalp scrub?
