Default Saw a new sulfate-free shampoo

It's Tigi Bed Head Superstar shampoo.

I wish they'd list their ingredients.

Me too!

I've bought several sulfate-free shampoos that were really drying. I'm not sure what to look for in sulfate-free shampoo ingredients, though.

I've been noticing that many of the "sulfate free" poos have a "sulfosuccinate" as the surfactant. I have found this type of surfactant to be drying; purology hydrate is one example. Turned my hair into straw.

I know that for sure you should avoid sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate, because it's just as harsh as sulfates.

I tend to generally avoid anything that sounds like sulfate as a surfectant because most of the ones I've tried are no more gentle than the least harsh sulfate.
