What are the best sulfate-free shampoos ?

Dying your hair means you have to avoid regular shampoos. They normally contain sulfates, the chemical that creates a foamy lather, which tends to break down hair color and cause further damage. Sulfate-free shampoos don't strip color and provide additional hydration and strengthening.
