Sulphate-free shampoos are all the rage these days and with good reason. Sulphates are a group of chemicals often used in making haircare products like shampoos, conditioners and more. To put it simply, sulphates act as a surfactant. Sulphates create a lather-y effect while washing hair. They also make it easier to separate the dirt and grime from the scalp. While sulphates aren’t explicitly bad, some experts find it concerning that they’re found in various other household detergents as well as cleaning agents. Moreover, sulphates are known to strip away natural oils from the scalp and hair, which is definitely damaging for the long-term health of your hair. Sulphates, sometimes, also result in irritation, itchiness and redness. These concerns have pushed many to switch to sulphate or SLS-free shampoo and other haircare products. SLS refers to a particular kind of sulphate called sodium laureth sulphate. Another benefit of sulphate-free haircare productsis that they’re ideal for coloured hair. Sulphate-free shampoos prevent hair dye from washing away too fast.
In order to check if a shampoo is sulphate-free or not, always peruse the back of the bottle. If the ingredients section mentions sulphate or Sodium Laureth Sulphate, then it’s best to stay away!
So, in case you’re planning to make a switch to SLS-free products, let us help you with some of the best sulphate-free shampoos out there.

Acai oil works towards smoothening strands, while menthol provides a cooling and soothing sensation to your scalp. This further improves blood circulation and triggers growth. This SLS-free shampoo is just what you need to bring dry, damaged and frizzy hair back to life. This shampoo is suitable for chemically treated hair as well as coloured hair.

- Keracare Repair Shampoo The Godrej Professional Keracare Repair Shampoo is a shampoo for chemically treated hair. This sulphate-free shampoo locks in moisture, controls frizz and revives dull and damaged hair. Grapeseed oil and wheat protein are its two main ingredients that improve the health of your hair. Grapeseed oil is responsible for moisturising and conditioning hair, thereby adding strength. It is also a rich source of vitamin E which adds a layer of sheen to fragile hair and prevents split ends. Wheat protein, on the other hand, works towards adding volume to hair, by preventing loss, breakage and thinning. This SLS-free shampoo is suitable for both men and women. It can also be used on colour-treated hair. For best results, use it with the Godrej Professional Keracare Repair Mask.
