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

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.
