How to Choose a Natural Shampoo – Buying Guide

Natural hair care products have become increasingly popular in a world where we’re all obsessed with health and the environment. And we believe that “natural” products are pure and safe. But what does “natural” really mean on shampoo labels?
Actually, the term “natural” is not regulated by the FDA at all. So a product with just one natural ingredient can claim to be natural, even if the rest of the ingredients are chemical toxic.
Of course, not everything’s a scam. But take things with a grain of salt. Here are some key points you should pay attention to when choosing a natural shampoo.

Ingredients to Avoid in Natural Shampoos

Ingredients to Avoid in Natural Shampoos
Not all shampoos labeled as “natural” are free of harmful ingredients. There are some ingredients that you don’t want in your shampoo.
Look for products that are sulfate-free. Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) are harsh chemicals that give you that nice lather. They also strip natural oils from your scalp and hair. This can cause irritation, especially if your skin is sensitive–or you’ve dyed your hair one too many times.
You also want to avoid products with parabens, butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), and butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA). They are used to keep shampoos on the shelf for longer. And they can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions.
Ingredients such as cocamidopropyl betaine, decyl glucoside, lauryl glucoside, and ammonium cocoyl isethionate are much gentler. They’re found in many SLS free shampoos and are derived from coconut oil and fruit sugars.
So check the list of ingredients to make sure the shampoo isn’t going to give you a rash. Remember, the shorter the list, the more natural the shampoo truly is. If you can’t read most of the list, then don’t go for it.

Ingredients Good for Damaged Hair

Ingredients Good for Damaged Hair
If you want your brittle hair to feel like silk, look for products that contain panthenol. This ingredient is found in plants and is derived from vitamin B5 or pantothenic acid. It keeps your hair hydrated.
Also, look out for natural essential oils such as argan, coconut and jojoba oil. They will lock moisture in your hair, making sure it doesn’t just snap off or fissure into split ends.
Ever feel like you hair gets a bit squeaky post-shower? Shampoos enriched with natural essential oils double as conditioners–so your head doesn’t feel like a new pair of sneakers.

Natural Shampoos – User Tips

The following are some tips that’ll help you use natural shampoos right.

Do Natural Shampoos Expire?

Do Natural Shampoos Expire?
From the moment you pop open the cap, you expose the shampoo to air, light, heat, and humidity. Because natural shampoos do not contain preservatives, they can attract bacteria more easily than other shampoos, so be sure to keep your product in a dry and cool place at all times.
Check the expiration or best before date printed on the package. If nothing is printed, it’s recommended you use the product within 2 to 3 months after you open it.

Rinse Thoroughly After Washing

Rinse Thoroughly After Washing
Yes, it does seem like more foam equals cleaner hair. And natural shampoos don’t have a whole lot of lather, like their chemical-filled counterparts. So it seems like they don’t do their job. But, less lather doesn’t mean that your hair is being left filthy. For peace of mind, follow the steps below.
Start by fully wetting your hair. Rub the shampoo in wet hands to create a nice lather. Gently massage your scalp and hair. Add more water if necessary. Rinse your hair thoroughly to make sure that no residue is left behind. And there you have it. Fresh, clean, soft, beautiful hair.

Summary

Not all “natural” shampoos are what they claim to be. Now, when you pick a bottle off the shelf and read the ingredients, you know what to throw in the cart and what to stealthily put back. We hope we’ve given you the key to choosing a perfect, truly natural shampoo!

    Let’s get this straight–there’s no such thing as a “best” hair dye. Strictly speaking. Just like there’s no such thing as a “best” concealer or “best” mattress or “best” jacket because it all comes down to you. What kind of skin do you have? What kind of sleeping posture? Do you get cold easily?This time around, we ordered the 10 most popular hair dyes found in Japanese drugstores and on Japan’s e-commerce sites and compared the following:1. How vivid the color was2. How gentle on hair the dye was3.

If not, though, results may be a bit unexpected.

    It’s a buzzword in Japan: translucence. It’s similar to Korea’s glass skin–skin so pure that it’s nearly transparent, resembling layers of frosted glass. In the Western world, think "glow" or "dewy finish." In order to respond to that aesthetic, cosmetic companies–both drugstore and high-end–here have been coming out with scores of whitening serums, essences, and ampoules.As always, it’s difficult to tell what kind of skincare is effective and what isn’t. That’s why, this time around, we ordered the 24 most popular whitening serums from Japan’s e-commerce giants (such as Amazon, Rakuten, and @cosme) and tested them all. We also invited a skincare specialist and had her compare the following:1. Hydration2.

    We don’t know when it started, but Japanese women are known–have been known for a while–for beautiful skin. And walking around Tokyo, you can’t help but think “where’s there’s smoke, there’s fire.” While there’s no one factor that makes one’s skin what it is, we’d hazard a guess and say skincare is important.The Japanese skincare routine has quite a few steps. There’s cleansing; then the first step after cleansing is toning.

    We might not be able to prevent aging altogether, but we can still age gracefully. That feels like the consensus here in Japan, where anti-aging skincare is popular and constantly evolving. As time goes by, our skin undergoes certain changes–hormones are thrown out of balance, certain functions are dulled–and serums that you used once may no longer be as effective.So which serums a) target the signs of aging and b) will actually work for you? In order to answer that question, we ordered the 18 most popular anti-aging※1 serums※2 from Japan’s e-commerce giants (such as Amazon, Rakuten, and @cosme) and tested them all.
