Even though I personally love my silicones and sulphates, there are some curlies who benefit from following the CG method and using sulphate and silicone free products. So here is a huge list of Sulphate free shampoos in India. Being Sulphate free, they are all CG friendly/CG approved shampoos. I will keep updating it as and when I get new information 🙂 Also, since brands keep changing their formula every now & then, it’s always good to check their latest ingredients list to make sure they haven’t included any sulphates lately.
A note : I am only including sulphate free shampoos that don’t have any silicones, because to prevent silicone build-up on hair, you need a sulphate shampoo and that defeats the purpose of going sulphate free! I have also not included shampoos that say they are sulphate free but don’t have a full ingredients label. If you have decided to go sulphate free, remember that you need to also exclude olefin sulfonate from your products. Here’s why – Why some sulphate-free shampoos are harsh. And so this list should ideally be called ‘List of sulphate, silicone and olefin sulfonate free shampoos’. If you are going sulphate free, remember that none of your products should have silicones – or else there will be build up.
