#LBBPicks: Sulphate-Free Shampoos For Healthy, Happy Hair

Ten-Second Takeaway

Have you joined the sulphate-free shampoo bandwagon yet? If you haven’t, we highly recommend you do, because getting rid of sulphate shampoos is probably the best thing you can do for your hair. It takes a few washes {about three-four} for your hair to get used to the lack of harsh chemicals and detergents, but once it settles into the routine, there’s no going back.

We’re aware of just how confusing it can get to pick your first bottle {or fourth, whatever}, so we’re here with some of our very favourites. Flip that hair back and take note.

Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo
