This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in May of 2018. Sulfates are responsible for creating that thick, luxurious lather that we all love when washing our hair. But they also have a downside — they can increase frizziness and make dyes fade faster, meaning you have to go to the salon more often. If you have dry, curly, or color-treated hair, try one of these sulfate-free shampoos, which will clean your tresses without stripping away natural oils. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best sulfate-free shampoo on Amazon.

Originally from a tiny town in Virginia, Gabrielle moved to Los Angeles for a marketing internship at a well-known Hollywood public relations firm and was shocked to find that she loves the West Coast. She spent two years as a writer and editor for a large DIY/tutorial startup, where she wrote extensively about technology, security, lifestyle, and home improvement. A self-professed skincare nerd, she’s well-versed in numerous ingredients and methods, including both Western and Asian products. She is an avid home cook who has whiled away thousands of hours cooking and obsessively researching all things related to food and food science. Her time in the kitchen has also had the curious side effect of making her an expert at fending off attempted food thievery by her lazy boxer dog.
