Lustrous locks are coming your way with these organic shampoo and conditioners
Ever read the back of a shampoo bottle and wondered what those unpronounceable ingredients really do? Most of us lather up our locks at least twice a week which means we should consider the products we use because they’re going directly on our skin. Here are my tried and tested favourite organic shampoo and conditioners that equal less bad hair days and a healthier scalp.
Mukti is an all-time favourite when it comes to natural beauty products and their hair care range is no exception. They’re plant based and jam-packed with botanical extracts and nutrients. It doesn’t leave hair feeling heavy or oily and will add a little extra body too. However, I did find my hair a tad dry afterwards, so adding some oil to the roots once out of the shower helped.
Developed by renowned Israeli hair stylist, Mordechai Alvow, the entire range is vegan, natural, alcohol free, paraben free, sulfate free and cruelty free. I absolutely loved this shampoo when I first started using because it’s highly moisturising. I did find after using it for a couple of months my hair felt a bit heavy though, so best to mix it up after a while.
One of the best reasonably-priced natural shampoos on the market. It’s only slightly more expensive than mainstream brands and 100 per cent better because it’s certified organic, cruelty free, fair trade certified and vegan friendly. It can be a bit drying but worth a try if your hair is on the oily side.
The Josh Rosebrook range is really great for those with oily hair or scalp, plus it gives some extra body if that’s what you’re after. It’s free from parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, synthetic ingredients, preservatives, colors, fillers, fragrances or GMOs and it’s also cruelty free.
If you’ve got your at-home hair sorted but want to head to the salon for a cut, treatment or colour, I recommend these natural hair salons;
Organika Hair Salon in Melbourne and
The Sustainable Salon in Sydney.
