Life is all about experimenting. Experimenting with my food, travel, passion, writing and even my looks. My looks are something which I was skeptical to experiment with but then I wanted to come out of inhibitions and I decided to go big and color my hair!
It was a big decision of my life and I really wanted to bring a new look and I must say coloring did bring a new touch to my personality and then there was no U-turn in that! I kept trying new styles, shades, but I forgot the amount of stress my hair went through due to coloring and other treatments. I wouldn’t stop anyone from experimenting, but I would definitely ask you to take extra care of your hair after coloring or treating. And that’s why I have come up with this post of top sulfate free shampoo brands in India.
Before we get into the post, do understand that ingredients like sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium Laureth sulfate don’t add nutrients to strands instead they strip the hair of essential oils and can damage the scalp easily.
If your hair is chemically treated then you can experience dryness, frizzy hair, hair fall! So it is best to opt for shampoos that are free of sulfate.
Check out my top 8 Sulfate Free Shampoos list!
