Shampoos can claim they're made with all kinds of holistic ingredients – tea tree oil, mint, and oat milk –but that doesn't mean the formula won't be harsh on both your hair and the environment, too. And when we've used super-clean hair shampoos in the past, the formula could often be lacking: without sulfates and other harsh cleansing agents, natural shampoos can leave hair feeling lifeless. Luckily, natural and organic shampoos have come a long way, and the latest formulas cater to all hair types, from dry curls to oily, dyed, and even thinning hair. Here are some natural and organic shampoos that make your hair routine a little greener.

John Masters Organics Scalp Stimulating Shampoo

If you suffer from dandruff, you're not alone. A detoxifying shampoo, like this one from John Masters Organics, will cleanse your scalp and the root of your hair using peppermint and spearmint oils to get rid of dirt and debris. Plus, ingredients like sunflower oil work to balance oil production so you won't get dandruff again.

Alikay Naturals Cowash Me Cleansing Conditioner

Dry hair of any texture can benefit from subbing in co-wash, and we love that Alikay Naturals spells out its ingredient list in plain English – so you're not left wondering what Behentrimonium Methosulfate is doing in your cleanser.

Dr. Alkaitis's Organic Herbal Shampoo

You know that incredible lather most hair commercials promise but you can't achieve in the shower? This organic shampoo delivers! Dr. Alkaitis's shampoo uses ingredients like aloe Vera, coconut oil, and vitamin E to create the perfect amount of shower fizz while strengthening strands and promoting shine.

Ethique Eco-Friendly Frizz Wrangler Shampoo Bar

Not only is Ethique's cruelty-free shampoo bar packed with frizz-taming natural ingredients like coconut and cocoa butter, but the no-bottle packaging is both better for the environment and your wallet, as one bar is equivalent to three bottles of liquid shampoo.

Playa Every Day Shampoo

What's cool about this coconut-derived shampoo is that it leaves behind a light lather full of nutrient-boosting bubbles that detoxify and nourish the hair with a healthy amount of hydration. It's careful not to strip away your hair's natural oils and overtime stimulates your roots for optimal hair growth. Prepare to be hypnotised by its amazing scent of black coconut, orange blossom, fresh sandalwood, and pacific musk in the shower.

R+Co Super Garden CBD Shampoo

If slathering your strands in hemp-derived CBD doesn't sound appealing, then we don’t know what will. Your hair needs some R&R, too, and this shampoo will bring it back to a peaceful state using calming CBD, which has scalp-soothing benefits. There's also coconut, moringa, peppermint, and eucalpytus oil swimming around in this shampoo to stimulate hair growth. Even better: the environmentally-conscious bottles are made from plastic waste to reduce the brand's footprint.

Amazon Beauty Voluminous Shampoo

Looking to add a bit of bounce and volume to your limp strands? This completely clean formula acts as a thickening agent, adding a noticeable amount of volume, while the rahua oil, which is rich in fatty acids, strengthens hair prone to breakage. It's also full of detoxifiers and antioxidants like green tea, citrus, and lemongrass to rid your hair of build-up and excess oil.

Briogeo Be Gentle Be Kind Matcha + Apple Replenishing Superfood Shampoo

You know what they say about superfoods: they'll allow you to live your best life. Now, your hair can live its best life too with this superfood shampoo, which uses the power of supercharged ingredients like apple, matcha, spinach, and vitamin C to ensure your strands have all the fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals they need. Inspired by all the nutrients green juice provides, this shampoo is the ultimate reviver.
