Our Top 16 Natural & Organic Shampoos

By Arwa Lodhi

While we often worry about what goes in our cosmetics and skincare, we neglect to check the ingredients of a product we all use every day: shampoo. And unfortunately, almost all commercial shampoos contain ingredients that can harm your health.

The main such ingredient is sodium laurel sulphate (SLS).

With sodium laurel sulphate, dioxins are created –- and they are some of the most potentially dangerous carcinogens in the world–in fact, Agent Orange, the chemical spray used by America to defoliate the jungles of Vietnam, was made of that.

SLS is commonly used, nonetheless, because it’s cheap and has the ability to foam up when mixed with a bit of salt. Unfortunately, many consumers have the perception that lots of foam=cleaner hair, but this is not the case: the foam itself doesn’t help clean your hair much. But SLS does get rid of grease, which is why it is used for cleaning engines and in garage and kitchen floor cleaning products.

If you’ve ever wondered why shampoo labels always warn against getting the product in your eyes, it’s not because it stings–we all know that–it’s because SLS is highly irritating to all mucous membranes and the upper respiratory tract; yet avoiding inhaling droplets of it is difficult in a hot shower.  It’s also damaging to hair follicles themselves.

It may sound silly, but have you noticed that homeless people are rarely bald? It may be because they don’t often use shampoo: SLS also corrodes hair follicles and impairs their ability to grow hair. One study showed that if you use pure SLS on your scalp it will cause hair to fall out! Some trichologists (hair specialists) believe that increasing use of SLS and the salt that is added to it to make it foam is leading more women to lose their hair (or to have it thin out) than ever before.

There are however other more profound health hazards associated with SLS. Scientists have studied the effects of SLS extensively, and their studies reveal compelling and alarming evidence indicating that it should be avoided. Among the findings is that SLS is rapidly taken up by eye tissue and retained; this is even more so for children. SLS is absorbed through skin contact, not just through the eyes, and has been documented to enter and maintain residual levels in the brain, liver, heart, and lungs. It can damage the immune system and cause severe inflammation of the skin, but scariest of all, the damage is accumulative, and once your immune system is damaged, it takes long time for it to recover. This can lead to a form of suppression of your body that allows you to become more vulnerable to viruses or bacteria.

Unfortunately, it’s not only shampoos we have to watch out for. SLS is in a lot of other personal care products as well, including toothpaste, hand and body soaps, bubble baths, facial cleansers, shaving gel. But don’t worry–we’ll be discovering healthier product alternatives for you over the coming weeks. In the meantime, bin the SLS-laden shampoos in your bathroom and replace them with one of the fantastic SLS-free shampoos, all of which contain at least some organic ingredients, and which we’ve tried and tested ourselves, below.

Please note: Eluxe was not paid for any of these endorsements

1.  Onira Organics

Featuring Tahitian Ginger Extract, Onira Organics’ natural shampoos not only clean your hair, but nourish it, too. Wheat proteins and calendula flower extracts are added to protect, regenerate and repair broken strands, while pracaxi oil has a smoothing, detangling effect, leaving your tresses stronger and more manageable. Peppermint water combines with the calendula to create a soft, unique scent, and aloe vera is in there to hydrate and soothe. In short, this is a highly luxurious shampoo that never has SLS, PEG, parabens, silicone or other nasties.

Price: Around $50 a bottle

2. Original & Mineral

This is a nice smelling shampoo without the toxic ‘parfum,’ and it lathers well without the SLS. Its long list of natural ingredients means it won’t  irritate your scalp, and the density of protective antioxidants and amino acids means your hair is left naturally hydrated and smooth. Plus, there’s even a natural UV inhibitor to protect coloured hair!

Price: $20 per bottle

3.  Dr Organic Shampoos

Dr Organics uses a combination of bioactive, organic and natural ingredients, such as argan oil, Manuka honey and aloe vera  to get your hair clean and soft,  but be warned: it also contains some synthetic surfactants like cocamidopropyl betaine, which some may find irritating but which has been given a low hazard rating (4) by the Environmental Working Group. Still,  Dr Organic shampoo cleanses and foams up well, and the presence of humectants like Argan oil leave  hair soft and tangle free. The shampoos also have a   lovely scent based on different natural ingredients such as mandarin peel oil, geranium oil, patchouli and cinnamon. Our favourite is the Manuka Honey, which really does smell like you just fell into a honey pot!

Price: Around $7.00 per bottle

4. Odylique

This certified organic shampoo shampoo is made of 70% organic ingredients, with coco glucoside as its main cleanser. It has a very subtle, light scent, as it is perfumed with just a touch of chamomile and rosemary extracts, so if you’re looking for a product to perfume your hair, this may not be right for you. The product creates a gentle lather with a clean finish, and best of all, doesn’t strip hair of colour or natural sheen.

Price: Around $16.00 per bottle

5. Rahua Classics

Rich with organic and 100% natural ingredients, Rahua oil fortifies weak, damaged strands while nourishing and regenerating the scalp and hair follicles, allowing for hair to grow longer and stronger.  Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) offers delicate fragrance –- providing a soothing aromatherapy experience while shampooing. Again, it’s coconut that is used to effectively remove oil, dirt and bacteria without stripping necessary nutrients, and shea butter ensures your hair doesn’t dry out. This pure, gentle formula cleanses hair with fewer suds, which means it’s not removing colour or previously applied treatments.

Price: Around $28.00 a bottle

6. Green People Daily Aloe Shampoo

Apparently a fave of Kate Moss’s, this is a  soothing natural shampoo for all hair types, but especially for those with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Green People make a range of shampoos with various ingredients, and their products have no SLS or no foaming agents at all, and are also free of drying salt. Like Stop the Water While Using Me, we found a little of this lavender scented product went a long way.

Price: Around $15.00 per  tube

7.  Saach Organics  Hair Strengthening Shampoo

Herbs like basil and hibiscus clean  and nourish the hair from the root to the tips, while added peppermint oil helps with blood circulation to the scalp, which feeds the hair shaft from deep within. Saach also uses almond oil and coconut milk in its all-natural formulations  to ensure your hair doesn’t dry out or break off. This is a  deeply  conditioning formula that uses the power of ancient Indian Ayurvedic techniques to help revitalise dry, damaged hair.

Price: Around $15.00 per bottle

8.  Dr Alkaitis Herbal Shampoo

This one’s for the luxury lovers! The herbal, SLS free formula leaves your hair surprisingly soft and bouncy after use – in fact, many people, including me, feel a conditioner isn’t even necessary!  No wonder it’s become something of a cult favourite and a best seller, despite the lofty price.

Click here   or  here to buy.

Price: Around $50.00 per bottle

9. John Masters  

John Masters really is the ‘Master’ of natural hair care. His wide range of shampoos, conditioners, hair masks and styling products are fully based on natural ingredients, with many of these being from organic sources. We’ve tried and tested a good many of these, and have several favourites, including this Honey and Hibiscus Shampoo, which can be used every day. Fortified  with soy, rice & oat proteins to renew and reconstruct damaged hair, this SLS-free shampoo permeates the hair shaft with nutrients and of course, the added organic honey and hibiscus make your hair smell gently wonderful!

Price: Around $26.oo per tube

organic shampoos

10. Natulique Organic Hair Care

Looking for a seriously pure and gentle  shampoo? Look no further than  NATULIQUE. This is one of the few brands that offers  certified organic hair care, and also offers three basic types of shampoo: moisturising for dry hair, volumising for those with thin or flyaway hair, and every day shampoo for the rest of us.

11. Organic Surge Moisture Boost

Got frizzy hair? We found the solution. And it’s 98% all natural and organic, too! Organic Surge Moisture Boost Shampoo cleanses your hair and scalp gently, without removing their natural protective oils, thanks to ingredients like grape vine extract, wheat protein and olive leaf extracts. This gentle formula is also fully free from harsh foaming agents that strip hair of its natural oils and can cause scalp irritation, but it does have a nice, lightweight lather, thanks to its naturally-derived ingredients. Oh, and did I mention it comes with a matching conditioner, too?

Price: Around $10.00 per tube

organic shampoos

12. Naturigin Hairwash

Eco certified with organic aloe, olive extracts and lavender oil, this highly balanced, very mild formula was made for those who like to shampoo their hair daily. It adds a healthy  shine to the hair shaft, and was  especially formulated to protect  coloured treated hair – but it works a treat on natural hair, too, of course!

Price: Around $17.00 per bottle


13. Weleda Calendula Baby Shampoo

Looking for a shampoo for the baby? Or just have baby fine hair? Or maybe you want an all natural shampoo that won’t break the budget, and can also double up as a body wash? This shampoo really does tick a whole lot of boxes, which is why it’s been a European top seller for almost a century (that’s right – it’s been around for nearly 100 years!).

This is a gentle, tear-free formula with anti-inflammatory calendula, and moisturising almond oil. It offers a highly  gentle cleanse that will never strip your hair; it can be used as a shower gel, and is kind to even the most sensitive skins. It leaves your hair with a slightly sweet, chamomile like scent.

Price: Around $7.00 per tube.


14. Stop the Water While Using Me!

This tangy grapefruit and rosemary scented shampoo has a label (and a name!) that reminds you to turn the water off whilst you’re massaging the product in. A little dollop goes a long way, rinses out easily, and leaves no stripped feeling. The main ingredient here is a coconut based one: coco glucoside, plus wheat proteins. There is a ‘parfum’ on the ingredients list, which is a bit worrying as this word can potentially refer to any kind of chemical, but as the brand claims there are no artificial ingredients, we assume it’s a naturally based citrus scent.

Price: Around $15.00 a bottle

15. Art Naturals Argan Oil Shampoo

Looking for seriously soft locks? Look no further!  Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Sea Buckthorn Extract, Neem Leaf Extract and Linseed work together with Argan Oil to cleanse and deeply hydrate hair. It lathers up nicely (without SLS, of course) and leaves a soft, gentle scent that’s apparently derived from natural essential oils. No wonder this shampoo is a top seller for the brand!

Price: Around $15.00 per bottle

16. Tabitha James Kraan Dry Shampoos

There are plenty of reasons for using a dry shampoo: no time to wash and blow dry; camping or travelling to a place where water is scarce; trying to preserve an awesome hair style, or maybe you just want the volume that a dry shampoo offers (it really can give hair a boost, right from the roots). In any case, nobody does luxurious dry shampoos better than Tabitha James Kraan.

This Organic Dry Shampoo will naturally help balance oil production and soothe the scalp, and is suitable for all hair types to refresh and volumes. The lovely gold compact can be popped in your purse for emergency freshen-ups, too!

    Hello Arwa!

    I tend to agree with you that Sodium Laurel Sulphate can really irritate our mucous membranes as well as our upper respiratory tract. This ingredient can also irritate our hair follicles. Therefore I believe that we should avoid shampoo that has this ingredient. As for me, my favorite shampoo is
    Organic Excellence Mint Shampoo. This product is really good.

    My personal experience with these harsh shampoo brands were pretty bad. That’s why I prefer organic brands.

    However, we should also know that not all so-called organic products are really organic. Only USDA certified brands are really about 95% to 99% (maybe) organic.

    So we still need to be careful about going “organic” all the time.

    I have fine, wavy (2b/2c) hair with a scalp that tends to get dry. I started using the Made from Earth Peppermint Conditioner about a month ago, and my hair looks better than it’s ever looked: shiny and healthy with well-defined curls. The best part is that it’s been great for my scalp too! No flakes, dryness, or itching.

    I’m having trouble finding a shampoo that is right for my hair. I have very thick hair, but they are fine hairs. The organic or natural shampoos I’ve used are either too oily for my scalp and don’t rinse out of my thin hairs very easily or have the opposite effect and leave my hair dry and frizzy (Avalon Organics, for example).

    I’ve been trying the poo free method where I only use baking soda once a week, the rest of the week I just rinse it, and i spread my natural oils through my hair with a brush daily. I’m finding that I can’t get all of the baking soda out of my hair, because I have so many freakin thin hairs to get it through.

    I would appreciate any helpful feedback. Thank you!

      Hey I have the same problem. I have long straight hair and it’s really dense or thick. I started using Dr. hauschka because it’s really famous and people on the internet recommend me. It worked but sometimes it left some residue deep in my scalp. I solved it by washing more throughly my hair, but it smelled funny and the liquid is a bit granulated. I heard from a friend about and tried it out because they threw free samples for promotion and loved it. What I like about it is that it cleans and moisturizes my hair, so there is no need for conditioner. They make it with soapberries and it’s all natural, but I don’t really know the details, but you can look it up on the internet.

    Hi. I too have very fine but thick hair. It’s also very bleached, if you can imagine. I treat my scalp with doo gro mega thick growth oil by putting a little on my fingertips and massaging it in. If you don’t like the ingredients that are in it: it’s a blend of oils, one of which is almond oil, then you may just try straight almond oil? I don’t wash my hair every day. But I am also able to take Nature’s Gate tea tree conditioner and add extra oils like lavender and peppermint to it to stop the dry scalp. Between that and the Doo Grow oil after two weeks I have no dry scalp flakes. I do not put the Doo Gro in my hair, only on my scalp, not the rest of my hair. Use too much of it and you will regret it but it washes off easily as they are lighter oils. I’ve tried using a tiny bit of coconut oil or jojoba oil by itself and it didn’t work. Just passing on what worked for me. Hope it helps and if not that you find something that does. Wishing you luck. Itchy scalp is no fun!

    I’ve switched to all natural shampoos, because the sulphates and other chemicals have been making my scalp itchy. However all of the “organic/earth friendly” products I’ve tried left me hair either dry, unclean or a complete tangled mess. After doing some research. the Somaluxe Shampoo (Clarify & Restore) came highly recommended for being hair friendly. I had my Somaluxe products within a few days of ordering them – it shampoo rinsed clean leaving my hair soft and nourished. I followed up with the conditioner. Both Somaluxe products left my hair looking and feeling healthier. Great! Natural ingredients that really work.

It also smells so nice, very mild opposite to most natural stuff I have used. After using it for three months now my scalp is doing really well and the itchiness I had every now and then is gone. My husband also tested it for sort of oily scalp with flaky dandruff. With regular usage (washing every day) the scalp is clean and his shoulders are clean after long day at work.

    Great to find this article. I am going to read these products ingredients and see which ones are the 100% natural, chemical free and meet my hair requirements. I was on no poo method but did not work that well, no results. I have Indian origin hair, so not shampooing on daily bases thus may be no shampoo method did not make difference.

    Currently for several months I have been using Indian all plant based raw material – soapnut [reetha], shikakai and amla but the hair looks frizzy, bouncy – puffy and tangled, does not give smooth and sleek look. Though going all 100% natural my hair has definitely added that sheer and shine.

    Can anyone help by recommending a safe hair spray and/or hair mousse brand?
    I have been reading your articles on hair color safety and good shampoos with great interest.
    Your extensive research with these articles is much appreciated! Just keep up the good work!

    With thanks,

    Thanks so much for this article. I’ve decided to go organic with my shampoo too. Anyone can recommend the best shampoo and conditioner or mask for oily thin hair with damaged dry ends?
    Thanks so much

    How many of above shampoos have organic certification? Are they all really organic?

    Good list of products, but they all still come in plastic bottles. Any useful alternatives? I heard of a new one that comes in aluminium bottles back can’t find it mentioned online anywhere.

      Good point Justine! But glass is WAY better than aluminium, in any case 😉 x

    I am so thankful for your insight. I have found that most sites I have went on, gather there info from online shopping reviews that can be a bit misleading. However, yours is just an honest unbiased list, that is based on your own research and I thank you for this. I have long fine highlighted hair. Even though I have fine hair, I have lots of it. My hair can be a bit on the oily side but I can go at least a day without cleansing. I used to use shampoo for oily hair or colonizing. However, I discovered that it was stripping my oils away, which caused more oil, and even pimples on my scalp. So now I stick to repair/balancing/PH shampoos. My hair thankfully is now balanced, strong, and no more itchy clogged pores. I used Odylique first, which the tea tree helped calm my scalp. Then once my hair seemed more balanced I tried Rahua volume. Both excellent shampoos. However, the tea tree smell of Odylique was hard for me to accept, but if you can deal with the smell, it’s a fantastic shampoo, especially if you ran into an itchy pimply scalp like mine. Rahua is fantastic! A true spa like feeling. I’m thinking about switching to there new color shampoo. Looking forward to trying more of your recommended products.
