We've all heard how terrible products containing sulfates are for our curls. While sulfates make the suds that we're used to, that's actually a sign of moisture being stripped away. First of all, sulfates lead to dryness, frizz, and as a result, breakage. In an effort to keep curls hydrated, avoid shampoos with sulfates. Here are great sulfate free shampoos for soft curls. Give these fabulous shampoos a try and let us know what you think.
