Choose Your Favorite Natural Hair Shampoo

Using normal shampoos can be very drying and harsh to natural hair. Yeah, the run-of-the-mill drugstore shampoos may make great suds and churn up a good lather, but they most likely contain sulfate, a chemical that literally strips your hair of its natural oils.

Finding a natural hair shampoo that is free of sulfate and other harsh chemicals can sometimes be a needle in a haystack.

For a lot of naturals, shampooing has even been completely replaced with co-washing or conditioner washing for fear that the drugstore shampoos will contain these chemicals. Still, your hair will periodically require a good cleansing with a natural hair shampoo to get rid of excess build up. Always have a sulfate free shampoo in your medicine cabinet for this purpose. After checking out our 4 top recommendations, I'm sure you'll settle on your own favorite natural hair shampoo.

Products can be found at Walgreens, Walmart and Amazon. Here is a simple search tool to find and buy all other natural hair products. Even obscure ones!!!
