This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in May of 2018. If you've ever scrutinized the ingredients list of your favorite shampoos, you've probably seen words like glycol, panthenol, phenoxyethanol, and cetearyl alcohol. All of these are alcohols, and while they do serve as preservatives, foam-inhibitors, and shine enhancers, they can all dry out your hair. Check out our selection of alcohol-free shampoos instead, for a fresh take on hair care. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best alcohol-free shampoo on Amazon.
