Hi, it's curly-haired Bella here with an update on that whole no-poo/ plopping conversation. To refresh your memory, the first step to no 'poo is using shampoos without sulfates and, as I happened to be nearing the bottom of my bottle anyway, I hunted for items falling into this category for my next purchase.
Instead of taking the no-shampoo-period route, I sought out those without surfactants – no sodium laureth sulfate, sodium lauryl sulfate or ammonium laureth sulfate – to still have some power to rinse out my product. Because I know all too well the temptations of spending hours in the haircare aisle (or is that just me?), I'm sharing my researched roundup of safe suggestions to get you started.
This isn't just for curly girls either. Sulfates can be extra drying for people who color, have dry hair to begin with, or even sensitive skin that's easily irritated. Check out my list (and suggest your favorites in the comments below) when you read more.
