Know the natural shampoo, know which ones to buy and how to make

Many components of conventional shampoos can cause damage to hair health and also pollution of the planet. That’s why natural shampoo is a great option. Keep reading and understand what it is, learn about products to buy and learn how to make your own!

What is natural shampoo

We interviewed Roseli Siqueira, a beautician and cosmetologist who has been working with natural products and treatments for over 40 years. She explains to us that a natural shampoo is one that has only natural ingredients in its formula. “Without petroleum derivatives, sodium lauryl sulfate and parabens”, says the cosmetologist.

Roseli also claims that many compounds used in the cosmetics industry can harm the hair. “These actives will leave the hair wonderful on the outside and dry on the inside”, warns the cosmetologist. Therefore, many products available in the market only mask the hair instead of treating it.

Doubt: natural X organic

Not all natural shampoo is organic. This is because, for any product to be considered organic, it needs to be made with at least 95% of compounds grown without pesticides and non-GMO.

Many industrialized products appropriate the term “natural” to sell more according to current demands. However, you need to read the composition to make sure that the shampoo you are buying is really natural.

To know if a shampoo is really natural, it is necessary to pay attention to the presence of some ingredients. Silicone, paraffin and petroleum jelly (which are petroleum derivatives), as well as sodium lauryl sulfate and parabens, should not be part of natural shampoos, Roseli recommends. So pay attention to the labels and check out suggestions that are well evaluated by the following bloggers:
