Can anyone recommend one? Is it good for everyone or just for certain hair types? What are the benefits?

faith in nature not sure if it is sulphate free... but it is great lots of different kinds, I don't like the aloe vera one but have used lots of others and liked them all.

I'm using Tresemme naturals as a diluted scalp wash before washing with conditioner. The benefits of no SLS are less irritation, less stripping of the hair's natural oils and less over-production of oils, so you shouldn't need to wash quite so much.

It can take a bit of adjustment to get used to it as it's less foamy and it takes more work to make it work, as SLS is a harsh detergent that foams readily. IME diluting non-SLS shampoo really improves how it works.

I get FiH in the health food shop, it is widely available, I live in rural Scotland and never have a problem getting it, for me the benefits are my hair feels better using it compared to normal high street brands, I prefer using it on my dc, it feels luxurious without being expensive. It is an ethical company afaik, and if my hair needs a change I know I can get a different one easily because they have a good variety.

I like the chocolate one, and so does my ds! The hemp & meadowfoam and the seaweed ones smell really lovely too. It generally lasts for ages, if I use high street stuff my hair always feels pretty horrible, so I always go back to FiH.
