You’ve tried natural skincare, but what about natural hair care? Natural shampoos are full of plant and herb extracts that can strengthen your hair and scalp without exposing it to harmful chemicals.
Benefits of Natural Shampoos
- Non-allergenic. If you have dry, itchy scalp you may be sensitive to sulfates or synthetic fragrances. Switch to a natural shampoo (or alternate it with your favourite shampoo to see if you solves the problem.
- Fragrant. Many natural shampoos contain concentrated plant or flower extracts that smell wonderful! And they also have a fresh, clean and subtle scent — perfect if you’re not a fan of heavy perfumes.
- Eco-friendly. Natural shampoos use natural, bio-degradable ingredients that won’t contaminate water. They won’t create much lather (because they don’t have the chemicals that make the suds) but they still clean your hair just as well!
