Review: Tigi SLS free Shampoo and Conditioner for Thick Massive Hair

After writing a post on SLS (which you can read here) I’ve been looking into finding products that do not contain it.

Tigi have a Sulfate free shampoo and (I think) conditioner that I managed to find in my local TK Maxx (meaning it was cheaper than the RRP!) so I grabbed it as fast as I could!

The range is their Superstar range for Thick Massive Hair, which in my book is ALWAYS a bonus!

My hair is fairly long and I have a lot of it, but I still like to maximise it as much as possible and make it big and bouncy, so I was looking forward to seeing the results of the products and the effect of them being sulfate free.


The shampoo is harder to lather up than your normal shampoo, due to it being sulfate free but I noticed absolutely no difference in the cleaning of my hair which ultimately is what a shampoo is all about.

If a product can lather up and do as good a job as it can compared to a product with the sulfates in, I don’t see why using a product with them in is necessary!

I will definitely be looking into using sulfate free products more often, and have recently bought a Naked shampoo and conditioner set to try.

I also quite liked the pump on top of the bottle which worked really well and is quite solid, some of them are flimsy and don’t do a very good job.

 Also the packaging……BRIGHT PINK = LOVE!!

I’m quite girly but normally prefer things to remain simple with packaging, this works for me as the shape and design is simple and in one of my favourite colours


The conditioner doesn’t state on the front that it is sulfate free but the contents as far as I have read do not mention any kind of sulfates so I’m a little confused with this.


Anyway, it’s a good conditioner, not too heavy but feels good enough being applied to the hair that you know your hair will feel silky smooth afterwards.

I wouldn’t rave over the conditioner and tell everyone it’s amazing, but it definitely does leave my hair feeling good and if it doesn’t contain sulfates then that can only be a bonus!

I would definitely like to keep using sulfate free products as I believe using products with sulfates in do lead to irritation of your skin. However mainly I would like to see if it reduces the amount of hair that I lose each day.

Even though I have a lot, and a certain amount of hair shedding is natural, I do seem to lose quite a bit of hair each day, and I’m interested to see if this changes!

Do you use sulfate free products? Would you be willing to pay a little bit extra for them?
