It uses natural ingredients while formulating the shampoo rich in protective antioxidants which then promotes healthy hair.
The 100% Pure brand is a skincare product company manufacturing each and every product naturally and at an affordable price. They do have fragrance and pigmentation but it is given using natural ingredients.
I have realized one thing while researching about the organic shampoo brands that each of them truly signifies its name. Just above you read about 100% pure, now it is True Botanical. The products made under the brand’s name are MADE SAFE certified, which means they are free from 5000+ known toxic chemicals.

How to Buy the Best Organic and Natural Shampoos?
Getting the natural shampoo is indeed an overwhelming task but with the right buying guide and process, it will be done in minutes. There are few things that you need to keep in mind even before you look for shampoos.
1. Hair Type:
The first step should be knowing your hair type. Why? Every type of hair needs different ingredients to keep them nourished and safe from external and internal damage. Here’s the specification of ingredients you should look for according to your hair type:
Frizzy Hair: Coconut oil (provides moisturization and reduces frizz)
Damaged Hair: Argan oil, green tea, and other essential oils (provides nourishment to hair)
Oily Hair: Charcoal, lemon, grapefruit oil, etc. (prevents excessive oil buildup)
Dry Hair: Aloe vera, coconut oil, etc. (will keep your hair hydrated and moisturized)
Ingredients are everything when it comes to selecting the best natural shampoo. Once you have defined your hair type look for the shampoos that have the contents that will impact positively on your hair.
Follow the specifications I mentioned in the above point. If your hair is in neutral or the best form, make sure the organic shampoo you buy has hydrating, relaxing, and moisturizing agents. All those together will improve the hair condition and make it stay healthy.
3. Genuine Brand:
As said in the introduction part, there are brands that claim their products to be 100% natural but with the ingredients like paraben and sulfate. So always look for the brands that don’t only advertise but actually provide the same.
You must look at the label section to know whether the shampoo has natural ingredients or not. If there’s nothing mentioned, avoid buying that product. Besides, I have already provided you with the products and brands for getting a natural and organic shampoo.
What Are the Benefits of Using Natural Shampoo?
Yeah! I know this section should be the first one, but it is okay. The primary purpose is to educate – before or later, it doesn’t matter! This is my final pitch for you to finalize one of the best natural shampoos for your hair. There are reasons behind that, the immeasurable benefits:
- You will get nature’s care and not harmful or toxic chemicals and ingredients.
- There are no side effects as organic and natural ingredients are healing and soothing.
- It can moisturize your hair at its best and keeps it that way for a longer time.
