Shampoos can claim they’re made with all kinds of holistic ingredients—tea tree oil, mint, and oat milk—but that doesn’t mean the formula won’t be harsh on both your hair and the environment, too. And when we’ve used super-clean hair shampoos in the past, the formula could often be lacking: without sulfates and other harsh cleansing agents, natural shampoos can leave hair feeling lifeless. Luckily, natural and organic shampoos have come a long way, and the latest formulas cater to all hair types, from dry curls to oily, dyed, and even thinning hair.
1) Avalon Organics $7 AT TARGET
A gentle, sulfate-free clarifying shampoo used to just be the stuff of dreams, then Avalon Organics went and made it reality. Better yet, it’s vegan and cruelty-free, too.
2) Alikay Naturals $14 AT ALIKAYNATURALS.COM
Dry hair of any texture can benefit from subbing in co-wash, and we love that Alikay Naturals spells out its ingredient list in plain English—so you’re not left wondering what Behentrimonium Methosulfate is doing in your cleanser.
3) Drunk Elephant $55 AT SEPHORA
Clean skincare brand Drunk Elephant just launched a line of hair and body products that will upgrade your entire beauty routine. We love the glossing shampoo for gentle cleansing hair without sacrificing natural shine.
4) Innersense $28 AT CREDO BEAUTY
This gentle formula hydrates fine hair without weighing it down, and you’ll love the addictive—and all-natural—citrus scent.
5) Odacité $29 AT THEDETOXMARKET.COM
If you’re looking to cut down on your plastic consumption (and who isn’t?), this shampoo bar has argan and coconut oils to moisturize strands while delivering the lather you love, without the waste.
