If you’ve ever read the back of a shampoo bottle, you might have seen an ingredient called sulfate. Sulfate is intended to remove dirt and oils from the hair, but it often pulls too much of our hair’s natural oils and moisture, leaving us with dry, unhealthy hair. Sulfate is an ingredient redheads should avoid. Here are some of our favorite sulfate-free ‘redhead friendly’ shampoos under $30 and all products have been featured in an H2BAR Box:
1. If your red hair needs some shine
Finally Glossy® Shine & Luminosity Shampoo for Redheads: It took many years to custom-make the Finally Glossy® formula and we’re so excited for redheads to enjoy it. We’re thrilled to release another clean redhead beauty product. It is paraben-free, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, petroleum-free, mineral-oil, and vegan. It also contains no perfume, is free of gluten and is silicone-free, phthalate-free, formaldehyde-free and cocamidopropyl betaine-free. This clean formula is formulated with Vitamin B3, olive oil, coconut oil and green tea.
2. If you have extremely sensitive skin
Tree To Tub Fragrance-Free Shampoo for Sensitive Skin: Got sensitive skin? This sulfate-free shampoo has no fragrances and is safe for even the most sensitive of skins.
