Finding the right shampoo for your hair can be tricky! You have to consider your hair type, its needs, and even the season. On top of this, it’s also important to consider what kind of ingredients the shampoo contains. Many shampoos are made up of harsh formulas and chemical-filled ingredients which can damage your hair. When it comes to natural shampoo, they are not only much better for your hair, but they are also better for the environment! Today, we are diving deep into the world of natural shampoo.
Instead of chemicals, natural shampoos use plant extracts, essential oils and other natural ingredients to clean hair. This is much more gentle on your hair than other shampoos that use harmful ingredients that will strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and prone to breakage (among other nasty things!). These chemicals can also affect your skin, causing irritation or flare-ups. As well as this, natural shampoos are also better for the environment because they’re biodegradable and don’t contain chemicals and synthetic ingredients that can damage the planet.
When searching for the best natural shampoo, there are a few things you should look for. You want a formula that is natural, organic and designed to be gentle on your hair. Look for products that are free of parabens and phthalates, with as few ingredients listed as possible. It’s also a good idea to avoid foaming agents, like sulfates.

What can I expect when I make the switch?
Besides healthy, luscious locks? The main difference you might notice about natural shampoo is that it doesn’t lather up the same way your old shampoo did, since those foaming agents aren’t there. There’s no need to panic! This doesn’t mean your hair isn’t clean – just add more water as you’re washing to really create that lather. It can take a few washes for your scalp to adjust when switching to a natural shampoo, but we promise it’s 100% worth it!
