I am definitely one who has not adopted the no-poo curly girl method. As a result of product build up, every few weeks my hair needs a clarifying cleanse and co-washing just can’t get the job done!
The problem with some shampoos is that they contain sulfates. A sulfate is a surfactant that basically gives your shampoo the lather and causes it to foam up. This chemical is bad because it strips our hair and causes the cuticle to open up, thus releasing moisture and resulting in dry, brittle strands.
If you’re like me and need your shampoo fix but want to keep up your healthy hair journey while saving money keep reading for my top 5 cheap sulfate-free shampoos.
This salon quality shampoo is sulfate and paraben free and offers a refreshing tingle. The peppermint(affiliate link) and tea tree oil(affiliate link) infused within the product help to moisturize, clarify and alleviate a dry scalp. In addition it is also cruelty-free (no animal testing).
You can get this for about $7 at Trader Joe’s or online if there isn’t a store near you. Pair this with the Tea Tree(affiliate link) conditioner and your scalp and hair will feel amazing!
