When it comes to shampoo it’s often hard to know where to start. Whether you’re looking for volume, hydration or to condition your hair colour there’s thousands of products out there to choose from. With experts beginning to question the use of sodium laureth sulphate in shampoo, the ingredient that creates a foamy later and a squeaky-clean feel, many are beginning to take a more natural approach. If you too are looking to make that switch, we’ve put together some of our favourite natural shampoosto help you create a more earth-friendly haircare routine.  

We Are Paradoxx Super Natural Shampoo

The refreshing formula enriched with Hops and Nettle extract, helps to create height and volume whilst being gentle on the hair. The shampoo works to rid the hair and scalp of daily grime, impurities and excess oils, whilst enveloping strands with a nourishing powerhouse trio of Babassu Oil, Matcha Green Tea and Carrageen Moss extract. Ginseng helps fortify weak tresses and tame unsightly frizz, leaving you with enviable silky-soft and satin-smooth mane. 

KLORANE Nettle Shampoo

KLORANE’s Nettle Shampoo boasts a unique, botanical formula designed specifically for oily hair. This treatment works to gently cleanse your hair whilst boosting its volume and detangling knots. It works to regulate the production of sebum on the scalp, allowing you to wash your hair less frequently, yes you heard it!
