Default Unable to find sulphate-free shampoos

Hey,
i live in zambia and finding products that are good for my hair in my country is extremely hard if not impossible.
i have tried to look for a sulphate free shampoo but haven't managed to find one.
what alternatives can i use? or are there shampoos with sulphate you can recommend for me?

Maybe you can order some online? Curlmart has lots of good ones as well as many other beauty supply store websites. I spend alot of time searching products on here that other people have tried and I have found alot of homemade recipes that seem to work for others. Some people just use baking soda and Apple cider vinegar on their hair. I have yet to try this but I think I will eventually research how others are doing it and then try it myself. Hope someone else chimes in here with more ideas for you!

if you can't find any sulfate-free shampoos, what you can do is what lorraine massey talks about in her first 'the curly girl' book --
-- do not wash your hair every day, try every other day or even 2x/week,
-- water down the shampoo,
--and you can coat the hair with conditioner and only shampoo the scalp mostly.

see if that helps!

I have read of some people adding oils to shampoos to make them less harsh. I haven't tried it myself, but it is something you can look into.

iHerb.com also ships internationally. Here is their page on international orders:
iHerb.com - International Shipping

And I have seen coupon codes floating around for that site sometimes too.
