To date, on the shelves you can find dozens of different brands of shampoos. An ordinary buyer without the necessary knowledge is very difficult to understand all this diversity, and carefully study the composition of each bottle just once. As a result, shampoo is selected not by composition or useful properties, but by label and price.
To help customers make a choice, we ranked the best shampoos. The main criterion for selection was the composition of the product, because a good hair shampoo should not contain sulphates, silicones and parabens. They not only spoil the hair, but also have a negative effect on health, because, if they get into the internal organs, they can cause cancer.
On labels, the names of these harmful substances look like this:
- sodium lauryl sulfate,

What are dangerous sulfates and parabens?
Only by examining the compositions of hair care products can one realize the danger of the chemical components added there to improve the cleaning properties and extend the shelf life. And to see the difference between the effect of the standard means and the one in which no harmful impurities are present can be practiced in appearance and health of the hair.
The following substances in the composition of the care products are especially dangerous:
- Parabensthat ensure the safety of products. They are based on esters that protect the skin from the action of the fungus. These components are able to accumulate in the body and cause cancer diseases.
- Sulfates, produced from oil, in addition to the destructive effect on the hair and skin causes the onset of allergies.
Shampoos with a sulfate content when flushing partially remain on the body, which reinforces the negative effect of chemistry on the body and entails the following consequences:
- Dyed hair loses its color and shine, the effect of therapeutic keratin for hair decreases.
- The protective fatty layer that exists on the scalp is eroded, which leads to a permanent “oily hair effect” and daily washing.
- Dandruff, dermatitis, chronic hair loss.
The benefits of natural shampoos
Organic products are used as a safe alternative to sulphate shampoos. The myth that natural shampoos are not able to wash your hair properly is common.
P Manufacturers add to the composition of special substances produced from coconut oil and glucose:
- laureth sulfosuccinate (lauret sulfosuccinate),
- lauryl glucoside (lauril glucoside),
- cocoglucoside (cocoglucoside).
The names of these components sound ominously, but their soft effect dispels all doubts in their organic origin.
Among the undoubted advantages of sulfate-free shampoos:
- Gentle effect on the pH balance of the skin, moisturizing and calming the skin.
- There is no likelihood of dandruff.
- Safe for the health of children of any age.
- The use of natural shampoos enhances the effect of balms and hair masks.
- Sulfate-free products are neutral to the environment.
Shampoos, in which there are no sulfates, do not give abundant foam, but this does not affect their washing ability. To maximize the effect of exposure to such an agent, it is necessary to hold it on the hair a little longer before washing it with water.
In nature, there are also natural preservatives, the raw materials for the production of which are plants.
These substances have an active antibacterial and antifungal effects and are widely used in organic cosmetics:
- Essential oils that inhibit the activity of microbes: lavender, thyme, carnation, rose, juniper and many others. Plant ethers can inhibit the growth of pathogenic microflora for a long time.
- Bee products. The phytoncides contained in honey, propolis and wax carry antiviral and bacteriostatic properties.
- Sea salt, which prevents the growth of bacteria.
- Sour berries such as cranberries, lingonberries and blueberries are saturated with benzoic acid, which is collected in laboratory conditions and introduced into cosmetics as an antimicrobial agent.
The list of natural "substitutes" can be continued. Their main advantage: a set of useful qualities that positively affect health and beauty. Accordingly, since organic-based shampoos usually have a capacious composition, their effect on the hair and skin is difficult to overestimate.

In addition to the undoubted advantages in the practice of using natural shampoos, there are some conventions that should be remembered:
- In order for the hair to be washed well and the active ingredients of the composition have had time to act, it is necessary to apply the agent twice during the washing procedure. After the second application, leave on hair for 2-3 minutes, then rinse. If there is an abundance of styling products on the hair, there may be a need for a third application.
- Due to the natural origin of most of the constituents, it is better to keep it away from high humidity and temperature changes, that is, not in the bathroom.
Some shampoos in the summer heat are stored in the refrigerator.
- Shampoos with a natural composition are perfect as a basis for homemade medical masks. Regardless of the recipe, a small amount of shampoo is added to the mixture for better distribution through the hair and subsequent washout.
- When buying a shampoo, you need to pay close attention to the shelf life and storage conditions in the store. Such products are not displayed on showcases where direct sunlight falls.
How to make a natural homemade shampoo
If time permits and there is a desire to experiment, you can use the recipes for making homemade shampoos:
- Mustard Based
Mustard powder is diluted with warm water to the consistency of sour cream. The resulting solution is massaged into the hair and washed off in a minute. The hair is then rinsed with water and lemon juice added to neutralize the mustard flavor. This shampoo activates hair to grow.

Gruel made of clay is applied to wet hair and left for a few minutes. Then rinsed with warm water.

Which is better to buy shampoo without sulfates
When choosing a product, it is necessary to take into account the type of hair, if the package does not indicate, for example, “For dry” or “For normal”, then it is suitable for any of them. If the shampoo is needed to give volume or perform any other tasks, then this should also be indicated. Its absence indicates that the product is exclusively “prophylactic” - intended only for washing the head.
It is better to choose which sulphate-free shampoo, considering the purpose of its use:
- Estel Otium Aqua will be relevant for moisturizing dry curls.
- L’Oreal Professionnel Expert Vitamino Color Soft Cleanser will provide perfect smoothness and obedience.
- Those who want to choose a good tool with the capabilities of the air conditioner, you can pay attention to the Elseve.
- If your hair is very tangled, you should think about buying a product from the brand "Grandmother Agafi's Recipes."
- With brittle curls, Indigo organic therapy will be very useful.
- For baby hair care, it would be logical to choose Natura Siberica Little.
Even if we are talking about the best non-sulfate shampoos, you should always remember that they may have their drawbacks. Therefore, you need to choose them taking into account the objectives of the application and their needs, only in this case the purchase will not be useless!
And that's why:
Sulfates - although they form an excellent foam that creates the effect of washing out to a squeak, they accelerate the loss of color and natural oils, cause overdrying, irritation of the skin, cause the hair to get oily faster.
As a result, you begin to wash your head more and more often.
It is impossible to completely refuse sulfates, but it is necessary to look for brands with their minimum quantity.
Phthalates - this chemical evil is one of the main components of the laying means. Together with them you get iron curls, which are not afraid of hurricanes, and a bunch of toxins.
Many phthalates are already banned for use in the cosmetics industry.
Shampoos with chemical additives significantly degrade the quality of our hair
Parabens - prevent bacteria from multiplying in cosmetics, but can provoke allergies and diseases of oncological nature.
A good half of the studies, however, are not able to prove their direct impact on human health, therefore, like any non-natural component, it is better to limit their use.
Odorants - what makes your almond shampoo so almond.
Reading the label, an ordinary person can hardly understand which of the components will result in an itchy head, redness and dandruff, so you should choose cosmetics without active artificial fragrances.
It will be discussed in the next section.
Tip: when you are looking for a composition without harmful impurities, in fact you are looking for a composition with the minimum amount. We'll have to accept the fact: 100% organic cosmetics can be prepared only at home. However, so that the store shampoo does irreparable harm to health, they need to wash their heads for eight hours a day.

Learning to choose the most natural cosmetics
All this, on the one hand, sounds magical, on the other, and organic cosmetics have a number of significant drawbacks:
- Means poorly foamed - they will have to be reapplied, and even that is not a fact that you will feel the very “washed-up effect”
- Spent two to three times faster and cost two to three times more.
- Without a balm, combing is problematic, so in addition to shampoo, you will have to fork out conditioner of the same brand.
- The first couple of weeks after use, the hair will look dull and inanimate - until all the silicones from the mass market tools are washed.
- For flushing serious styling will have to use shampoo with sulfates.
As you can see, the number of pluses considerably exceeds the minuses, which means that, in addition and as an alternative to the usual shampoo, natural care should appear in your bathroom.
It can be applied without fear and risk every day, and funds with an active chemical action can be reserved for the case when you can not do without a “big wash” of the head, so the influence of chemistry will be minimal.
Tip: in order not to overdry the skin, do not wash your head with too hot water. All shampoos thoroughly wash off for five minutes - of course, the water washes away the color of the colored curls, but it also neutralizes unnatural components.
