I've been using sulfate free for about 2 years. I love Burt's Bees lip balm, face soap and other stuff, but did not love their shampoo and conditioner.

L'oreal is, well, made by L'oreal. As fr as I know, they still do a lot of animal testing, which is a no-no in my book.

Kiss My Face worked great for the last year, probably still would. I ran out and decided to try a more local company, which has worked out well also. I'll probably go back to KMF some point because I've always liked switching shampoos, if only for the scents.

Good luck!

I've just started using Renpure Organics moisturizing shampoo and it's incredible ( I can get it in the Rite Aid down the street for less than $10.

I've used TIGI's Bed Head Superstar and loved it, but I've been using TIGI's Health Factor from their S Factor line for the past 3 years and my hair wants nothing else. It's also sulfate-free. My hair is super shiny and has a lot of bounce (even with my thin hair). I also use TIGI's S Factor's Serious Conditioner once a week. All of these may be a little bit pricier but well worth it.

I'm a big fan of Pureology hair products, all of which are sulfate free.

I have used the Loreal for a while. I tried other sulfate frees, like Burt's Bees, and did not like how they left my hair all dingy. I have really oily skin/hair and it never seemed to be clean. I also tried a couple other organic shampoos with the same result, but the Everpure line leaves my hair really soft but also clean.
