Best Paraben-Free Shampoos in Singapore 2023

 In order to preserve the shelf life of many shampoos, parabens are used. 

What Is A Paraben?

A paraben is a preservative and it is used to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus in shampoos. Compared to other, safer alternatives, they are cheaper, and mimic anti-microbial agents in plants.

However, Parabens can be bad for hair as they are easily absorbed through your skin and can be harmful to your scalp. Parabens can cause a number of problems for your hair including drying, irritating your scalp, fading your color, and even hair loss. 

It has also been found that parabens actually attach themselves to estrogen receptors, causing a weak estrogen effect on the body. Thus, parabens are also referred to as phytoestrogens. This may or may not cause breast cancer depending on which research you believe, but why take the risk?

We have listed some of the best paraben free shampoos in Singapore below.

I was loosing a lot of hair and getting desperate... Lol. I bought this on a whim not knowing much about it except what the advertisement said. When I first used it, I did not like it as I found it quite oily. I didn't need conditioner after this. For the first 2 months, I didn't think it did anything. I was still loosing a lot of hair. Was about to give up but then after the 2 months mark, something changed. There was less hair loss in the shower and when I was combing and blow drying. I've been using it for close to 6 months now and my hair looks like in the picture eg where I normally part my hair, you see more hair than white scalp. Will definitely purchase again.

Living Proof - Perfect Hair Day's Triple Detox Shampoo is a paraben free shampoo that gently removes buildup from other hair products, pollution and hard water.

- Non-stripping, color safe shampoo
- Formulated with activated charcoal which absorbs oil from scalp and hair
- Infused with witch hazel to moisturize & soothe the scalp

I was pretty surprised by this shampoo. I hadn’t really bought into the charcoal trend going around right now but when I used this my hair had so much movement and was so soft. I use a lot of dry shampoo, leave in conditioners and Volumizer gets sprays and this actually got all the build up off my scalp and strands
