How do you recognize the best organic hair care?

General rule of thumb for recognizing the best hair care is; "less is more". In other words, the simpler the INCI (ingredient list) of the hair product, the better.

The best organic hair care consists of a 100% natural and effective composition. But no less important; choose products that suit your hair and scalp. Like a shampoo for curls or special natural shampoo against hair loss. Did you know that using a strong (synthetic) hair product is often the biggest culprit of thinning hair? They damage the skin's natural protective mechanism, causing you to lose hair more quickly. Therefore, always choose a mild composition. Below you can read more about the benefits of the best organic hair care.

Which ingredients are good for your hair? (and which ones aren't)

  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Beer & oat protein
  • Hemp oil
  • Tea Tree
  • Rhassoul clay

These ingredients belong cannot at home in the best organic hair care

Even though in our opinion synthetic ingredients do not belong in the best organic hair care; they can be effective. But they do not nourish the hair. For natural long-term results, give your hair the best organic nutrients. It is better to avoid the ingredients below, because they can be harmful to your scalp or the environment.

NB; these ingredients are often used with alternative names, so that they cannot be recognized as such. Honest organic hair care brands will be proud of their products and completely transparent about the composition.

  • Sulphates; SLS and SLES are widely used in hair products such as shampoos. The reason for this is simple. It is an inexpensive way to effectively remove grease and dirt. They also ensure that products foam. The problem is that they have a much too aggressive effect, causing them to irritate your scalp and damage the hair in the long term. Therefore always choose one shampoo without sulfates.
  • Parabens; there is much debate about the safety of these preservatives. Although more and more research shows various health risks,... parabens considered safe in a minimum amount. But if you use many products with a minimal amount of parabens, you may wonder whether you want to run this risk. If you choose organic hair care without parabens, make sure it does not contain other synthetic preservatives. These ensure that a product has a longer shelf life in an inexpensive way. But we prove with our best organic hair care that there are much better (and healthier) alternatives!
  • Silicones make your hair super soft. But with a shampoo or conditioner containing silicone, your natural hair volume literally goes 'down the drain'. In addition, nutrients that make your hair happy may penetrate less well. They also disrupt your natural sebum production and that can cause dry or oily skin (and therefore hair). In addition, silicone as liquid plastic is anything but eco-friendly. Just like other microplastics, they are flushed into nature through your shower drain. Therefore, avoid silicones not only for your hair, but also for the environment!
  • Synthetic perfumes; Let's be honest - perfumes provide the most wonderful scents. At the same time, they damage your hair and can irritate your (scalp) skin and throw it out of balance. Just like alcohol, by the way. Essential oils are a much better alternative! You can also add this yourself to your organic hair care. Please take a look at our range aromatherapy products.

Why should you choose organic hair care?

A healthy scalp is the basis for healthy and naturally shiny hair. When the skin barrier on your head works well, it naturally provides excellent protection against harmful external influences. It is also able to absorb nutrients and retain moisture. The best organic hair products therefore clean gently and respect the natural balance of your (scalp) skin.

The counterparts of organic hair products cause dry, limp hair in the long term and damage your scalp. In other words, you end up in a negative spiral where you need more and more products to keep your hair beautiful (on the outside). Unfortunately, this is actually a very clever marketing trick. The truth of the best organic hair care is that your hair gets more and more natural shine and volume. Even styling products become redundant!

What is a good natural shampoo?

The basis of organic hair care is of course your shampoo. Which shampoo is 100% natural? A organic shampoo bar! Our organic shampoo bars remove dirt and chemicals from your hair in a natural way. The result is a healthy-looking and stronger hair structure. And it's even better for your scalp. But those are not the only benefits; A shampoo bar lasts much longer than a bottled version, it is more environmentally friendly and its compact size makes it easy to take with you.
