When it comes to haircare, finding the right shampoo is key for avoiding common issues like hair fall and dandruff. But aside from these, we also want to prevent irreversible scalp damage that can inevitably irritate our skin and cause irregular amounts of hair loss. The solution? Organic shampoos that do not contain harmful chemicals that are not good for both your scalp and hair.
What makes a shampoo organic?
Organic shampoos use natural ingredients like plant and herbal extracts, natural minerals, and oils instead of chemicals to give your hair much-needed care. It doesn’t contain ‘bad alcohol’ which dries out the scalp, leading to irritation and inflammation. It’s also free from sulfates which strips your hair of moisture by loosening the natural sebum your scalp produces.
