10 Best Sulfate and Paraben Free Shampoos in Singapore 2023

Sulfates are the foaming agents found in traditional shampoos. These foaming agents can have negative effects when they prove too harsh for your hair, stripping it off its natural oils and drying it to the point where it’s brittle and limp. That’s why people reach for sulfate-free formulas. They’re thought to keep hair color and curls preserved more effectively and for longer than shampoos with these foaming agents. Although they might not lather up like you’re used to, know that your hair is still getting clean while becoming healthier at the same time.

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. 

Below, our picks of the best sulfate and paraben free shampoos that you can buy from your nearest retail stores like Watsons or online from Lazada Singapore.

1. SMIB Herbs Essential Anti-hair Loss Shampoo, 500ml - Vegan and Sulphate Free

What makes the SMiB Natural Herb Essential Shampoo This Effective?

This breakthrough product is a combination of anti-aging ingredients for the scalp and hair.
Using an “SP-3 complex” that refills collagen that has escaped from the scalp, it is able to improve the health and condition of your hair. 

No matter how good the ingredients, these can't be effective unless absorbed by your scalp. The Herb Spa Shampoo contains black beans, beer yeast and white tea which help to increase scalp absorption. 

There’s also a trio of power ingredients: 
- Panthenol for strengthening hair elasticity and improving gloss
- Salicylic Acid for removing dead skin cells and dandruff from the scalp 
- Niacinamide for strengthening the scalp barrier. 

Shampoo Without Harmful Chemicals

The formula contains naturally derived herb essential oils to nourish your scalp and hair and is free of 12 hazardous chemical ingredients. The shampoo has been developed to exclude 12 chemical toxins such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Sulfate, Artificial dyes, Silicon, Mineral oil, Methylparaben, and others so your scalp and hair get only the best of quality hair care. Due to the shampoo’s mildly acidic nature, it allows for an optimal PH balance on the scalp and minimizes irritation, leaving your scalp healthy.

And, because it does not include sulfates, you can easily use the SMiB Natural Herb Essential Shampoo after your hair colour at a salon, and also after any hair treatments such as rebonding that require you to use only a sulfate-free shampoo. 

Does this mean that the SMiB Natural Herb Essential Shampoo does not foam up? Unlike traditional Sulfate-free shampoos that are hard to wash with due to their non-foaming formulas, SMiB’s Natural Herb Essential Shampoo features naturally-derived surfactants. Made from Sugarcane and Coconut, these give you optimal foam that gently washes away any waste from the scalp or hair. 

What Do The Results Say About SMiB’s Natural Herb Essential Shampoo?

Are you tired of trying hair and scalp products that don’t deliver on their promises? SMiB, wanted to develop a product that could prevent hair loss.

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.
