Looking for shampoo with mild sulfates
 
I'm currently using the Kenra line, which has sodium myreth sulfate, instead of the sodium laureth sulfate. I had read on this board that this was a less harsh sulfate than SLS. Are there any other shampoos that I could try that don't use SLS, but aren't sulfate-free? I'm just looking for a change and for something that doesn't sting my eyes so badly.

The reason I don't want to eliminate sulfates entirely is that I use Joice IceWhip and P.M. Skinny Serum for styling. I don't think a sulfate-free shampoo will wash those products out. I haven't found any mild styling products that make my hair look good.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I asked our Curly Chemist about the sulfate in Neutrogena Triple Moisture Cream Lather Shampoo (Sodium Trideceth Sulfate) & she told me it's a milder one than SLS & SLES. I've used this shampoo in the past & it is very gentle.

As for silicones & sulfate-free shampoos, check out the links in my signature line. :)

Loreal everpure
Bed head foxy curls
Real solutions
Samy pure

Those are the ones I have tried and found to work good. I like the loreal everpure the best.

Thank you, lazy loops
 
I am now using Neutrogena Triple Moisture shampoo and the conditioner. I have found my HG. I've been using it since April. And it's not even expensive! I have never had a shampoo make my hair look as good as this stuff does. My stylist even asked what I was using because my hair looked so much healthier than the last time she saw me.

Jason Natural line has shampoo with a mild sulfecant also. I use the Aloe Vera Shampoo which has Cocamidopropyl Betaine

You're welcome!

And here's another containing a low sulfate, I think. I recently gave it to a neighbor for her husband's dry itchy scalp since it didn't work on my son's very flaky scalp; J/A/S/O/N Tea Tree Scalp Normalizing Shampoo http://www.jason-natural.com/product..._hair_care.php.

Here are the ingredients as found on drugstore.com:
