Best shampoo without sulfates

Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Wednesday, June 13, 2007 1:56 AM (Eastern)

I managed to do a spot of shopping today. Bought two shampoos...which, for a shampoo ho, amounts to a whole hill of shampoo.

Both were repurchases, actually (again, highly unusual for said shampoo ho): Alba Hawaiian Hair Washes, Plumeria and Honeydew, one of each.

I've used other sulfate-free shampoos...Avalon Organics Lemon clarifying shampoo and Queen Helene Mint Julep shampoo (waves to Carol) are good. Kiss My Face Whenever shampoo was okay but I don't think I would repurchase. Jason Vitamin E shampoo smelled great, but ultimately I didn't like made my hair color look funny, I suppose it left a residue of some sort on it. (These are all reviewed in the Shampoo category of our Online Beauty Reviews site btw.)

Of all I've tried, few have I ever repurchased. The Alba Hawaiian ones are genuinely worthy, as follows:
  1. They smell divine, with a strong, natural fragrance.

  2. They lather decently, pretty much like a regular "sulfate shampoo."

  3. They're not cheap (the way Queen Helene Mint Julep shampoo is), but they're still affordable; you don't need to use gobs o' shampoo at a pop.

  4. They clean well without stripping or doing that funny thing to colored hair.

  5. They leave hair soft and manageable.

  6. They're pretty good at not building up.

All in all a pleasure to use. I can't wait to wash my hair tomorrow!
