I have been using sulfate-free shampoo and conditioners for a while now. In the past, I have used foreign brands like Bodyshop Rainforest range, L’oreal, Kiehl, etc. But in recent times, I have realized there are some really good hair products available in the market which perform well and are Made in India. So I thought it would be a good idea to share some of these hidden gems with more people.
I have created this list of sulfate-free shampoos, available and made in India to help you with my experience.
Why switch to sulfate-free shampoo?
See my story to learn why I switched to using sulfate-free and silicone-free conditioners. The options were limited when I started this journey. The Indian hair care industry has evolved, and a lot of quality products are available in the market now. For the most part, these are cruelty-free and are not tested on our furry friends.
Sulfate-free shampoo available in India
I have split this section based on the price range. You can explore options based on your budget.
For some products, there are multiple variants present. I have tried to capture as many as I could find. You can look around for other variants to find your best fit.
I will keep updating this list as and when I come across a new product to include.

Most of the above brands have associated conditioners too. Moreover, you should use silicone-free conditioners with sulfate-free shampoo as sulfate-free shampoo can’t remove build as effectively as their sulfate laded counterparts.
