While you’re breaking out the broom and tackling spring cleaning, why not shape up your hair care routine, too? With so many hair care options out there these days, there’s never been a better time to test the waters with sulfate-free products. In fact, it turns out that sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner are pretty popular these days—and for good reason. Below, learn about what sulfates are and how to create a sulfate-free hair care routine.
If you don’t know what sulfates are, then chances are you may not have ever thought of switching to a system of hair care products without them. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), sulfates are commonly found in shampoos. They are a popular type of detergent that can produce a lathering effect to help remove dirt and debris from the hair. There are a few reasons you may want to consider using products that are sulfate-free—beyond the fact that it’s trendy to do so! Read Our 5 Reasons to Consider Using a Sulfate-Free Shampoo if you’re looking to switch things up.
Decided to try sulfate-free products? Good news, there are plenty of options for you to choose from! Below, find our sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners.
L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Keratin Caring Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Keratin Caring Conditioner: This system gently cleanses and conditions chemically straightened hair. Keratin is the protein that hair is made up of, after all, so a shampoo and conditioner that cares for this essential protein can help repair hair that’s been chemically processed or treated.
L’Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Conditioner: This system gently cleanses and conditions dry hair with essential moisture. It’s especially gentle on colored hair and can help keep your hue looking pure.
L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Conditioner: This system gently cleanses, conditions, and infuses fine, flat hair with body without weighing it down. If you have thin hair or hair that tends to fall flat easily, use this shampoo and conditioner system to pump up the volume.
L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Conditioner: This system gently cleanses and deeply conditions fragile hair as well as helps protect it from environmental damage and daily color aggressors. Formulated with Goji berry, this system is both gentle and fortifying to strands, and with continued use over time, you’ll notice stronger, more resilient hair.
L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Conditioner: This system gently cleanses and conditions dry, brittle hair, replenishing vital nourishment and deep moisture. If your strands tend to get extremely dry, this is the system for you.
L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Conditioner: This system gently cleanses and deeply conditions frizz-prone hair for humidity and frizz control and manageability.
L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Conditioner: This system gently cleanses and conditions blonde hair, neutralizes brassiness, and hydrates over-processed hair.
L’Oréal Paris EverStrong Thickening Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverStrong Thickening Conditioner: This system gently removes buildup for a purified scalp and moisturizes to soothe the scalp.
L’Oréal Paris EverCurl Hydra Charge Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverCurl Hydra Charge Conditioner: This system quenches and softens, perfecting each curl’s shape without weighing them down.
Keep these tips handy when using sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner—and even if you’re not! Making these four easy tweaks to your hair care routine can make all the difference in helping to maintain the health of your hair.
We know—hot showers feel oh-so-good, especially on a cold night! But showering in super-hot H2O can strip your hair of its essential oils. Using lukewarm or even cool water to rinse your hair can prevent this issue. So, next time you’re getting ready to shampoo in the shower, turn down the dial and wash your hair in lukewarm temps instead.
There’s no need to aggressively rub shampoo and conditioner onto your hair. Just gently work your products through your hair before rinsing out. For shampoo, you want to concentrate on massaging the product onto your roots—not so much the ends of your hair. Conversely, when it comes to conditioner, you want to focus the product onto your lengths and ends and avoid your roots entirely.
A cotton T-shirt will be softer and more gentle than a towel, so keep one on hand in your bathroom.
Your hair is at its most fragile when wet, so put that brush away. Instead, spritz on a detangling spray and use a comb to gently undo any knots. It can also be a good idea to brush through your strands before you shower!
