Products We Love: Sulfate-Free Shampoos and Conditioners

If you’re not familiar, sulfates are the agents used in hair care products to create a sudsy later, but they also strip your strands of moisture and protective barriers. Meaning the tiny bubbles you’ve grown to love when you’re treating your hair might be doing you more harm than good. Your best bet is to steer clear and opt for products that moisturize, gently cleanse and nourish your strands. Here, we have a few of our favorites that won’t rob the bank. Take a look.
