Why organic cosmetics are needed
Fashion for everything eco-friendly dictates a new approach to consumption. But individual reactions were not canceled. Organics are not suitable for everyone.
There are no organic and SLS-free products in any professional line of hair cosmetics. Because modern realities guide them – women are constantly painting, drying, styling hair. And to restore curls, fill micro-damage, give a healthy, well-groomed look, need silicones, keratins, proteins, etc.
The decoction of chamomile, of course, is useful for the scalp, but the brittleness and porosity of the canvas will not have any impact. Therefore, all-natural organic ingredients are only good for the scalp. If the skin type is normal or dry, sensitive, if there is an allergy to sulfates, organics are best suited. But damaged hair won’t repair it.
For a greasy scalp, it’s hard to find a natural free-to-air shampoo that will be rinsed, so we’ve made you a selection of these products.
Trichologists do not tire of reminding us that the hair follicles are deep; no shampoo can impregnate them with useful substances and affect hair growth. For vitamins to penetrate to such a depth (at least 5 mm), the product should be applied for several hours. It can be special lotions, serums, but not shampoo.
But the hand still reaches for a bottle marked “accelerates hair growth,” “from the fallout,” and even more so if the composition of solid vitamins, extracts, placenta, stem cells of some exotic seeds. This is how we become victims of marketing.
By the way, natural components are much more likely to cause allergic reactions than “chemistry.”
So, organic hair products are suitable for those who have a normal or dry type of scalp without any problems, undamaged, unpainted hair; there is a reaction to sulfates, as well as children.
- Have a natural composition;
- Do not dry the skin;
- Do not accumulate, wash away well;
- does not wash out keratin, Botox, paint;
- Packaging from recycled materials;
- Not tested on animals
- Suitable for vegans.
Ingredients of organic shampoo
Organic shampoos can disappoint those who expect them to have an instant magical effect and are used to abundant foam silicone.
Its composition differs in that it does not contain:
- sulfate is sodium lauryl (SLS), and therefore gives less foam;
- thickeners, and therefore has a more liquid consistency;
- aggressive perfume perfume perfume, which means more often has only a slight smell of herbs;
- Silicones do not envelop the hair with a thin shiny film, which is difficult to wash off and accumulate.
They contain a soft soap base that doesn’t aggressively launder pollution, plus all-natural eco-friendly ingredients. Such shampoo should not be used constantly if you regularly use indelible products with silicone styling. He will not be able to clean the hair properly; then they will start to stick together in icicles, there will be a feeling of insatiability.
Safe detergents found in shampoos instead of sulfates:
- Cocamidopropyl Betaine
- Sapindus Mukorossi Fruit Extract
- Lauryl glucoside
- Sodium cocoanphoacetate
- Sodium cocoyl glutamate
- Sucrose cocoate
- soap nuts (decoction)
- soap root
Plants that will be part of organic shampoo are grown in environmentally friendly areas or on special organic farms, which excludes pesticides, GMOs, chemical fertilizers, and radiation exposure. What’s a plus not only for your hair but also for ecology (chemistry doesn’t get from your bathroom to the world’s oceans) and farmworkers.
Organics for hair at the expense of natural, environmentally friendly components provide care and do not burden the body with alien elements. So, shiny hair will not be silicone and healthy.
Despite the unusual texture, smell, and low foaming (which is not typical for all shampoos), the constant use of natural cosmetics will help you solve many problems and get moral satisfaction from its eco-friendliness.

How to use organic shampoo
The first time you apply, you may encounter an addictive problem. If the new shampoo is less foaming, worse washes – for oily skin, it is dangerous, do not wait a month when it gets used; it is fraught with the development of abortion. And for dry skin, it can be a boon, disappear the feeling of tightness and itching.
It is essential to read the instructions carefully and follow them correctly. In addition to the liquid, there are solid organic shampoos and powder; all kinds have their own features of use.
