Switching to natural shampoo can be challenging, especially if you’re used to using sulfate-based formulas. The sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) found in most shampoos is also found in household cleansers so it can be really harsh on your strands. It’s a pretty convincing reason to make the switch.
The biggest myth about natural shampoos is that they don’t have the same cleaning power as their SLS counterparts. And many think they aren’t equipped to deal with the range of hair problems we face on a daily basis. But with ingredients like apple cider vinegar, sunflower seed oil, aloe vera and argan oil, natural shampoos can totally transform your mane with regular use. Plus, they hydrate your locks, moisturize your scalp and battle dandruff just as well as (if not better than) your current go-to formula.
Here are the best natural shampoos that tackle a variety of hair care concerns.
