8 Natural & Organic Hair Product Lines

My desire to use chemical-free beauty products started when I changed my eating habits. I made the choice to invest in my health by working out and cutting processed foods, so it seemed only natural to do a similar screening process with my beauty routine. At first I did my research on which chemicals to avoid, but I soon found there were way too many to keep track of. Some reports made the chemicals sound deadly and cancer causing, while others stated they would simply “dry your hair out”.

I didn’t know what to believe and didn’t want to find out the hard way, so I decided using all natural and organic products was the safest bet. That way I wouldn’t have to stand in the beauty aisle trying to remember which alcohol was the “good kind” and which silicone was the “ok” one to use. There’s something peaceful about grabbing a product that has a handful of ingredients made from fruit, herbs and oils. And I didn’t want to take any chances with chemicals seeping into my body and cells and doing lord knows what to them in the long run!

I know you guys are going to say all natural and organic products cost an arm and a leg. A lot of them do. That is the truth. But not all of them! And, yes, the cheaper products were most definitely awesome for my pockets, but I found myself at the salon more often. Healthier products are better at helping your hair retain the moisture it needs to stay damage free and protected. This translates into less visits to the salon and more money in your pocket, in the long run. I went from having to trim 5 times a year to only once a year. It definitely balances out.

I admire those who can whip up their own products at home using nothing but fresh ingredients. I’m definitely not much of a mixtress. Yet! But in the meantime, I’ve narrowed down an awesome list of brands that genuinely care about our health. Here are 8 all natural and organic companies you should consider the next time you’re shopping for products:

1. Shea Moisture
Ingredients: All natural and organic ingredients ranging from shea butter and African black soap to avocado butter and neem oil.
Products: This line carries hair, face, body and grooming products that can be purchased at Amazon.com, your local Target, Walgreens and Duane Reade.
Price Point: The average price of each product is $9.99.

  3. I tried to go organic but I still find a lot of the products too expensive being a college student. I remember buying almost the whole line of shea moisture and my hair hated every product :( I just try to look for things with no sulfates or silicones and I find that it has helped my hair a lot. One day though I would love to try Aveda!

  4. Just a point–I think one needs to be careful calling these products organic. I know many of them say they are, but without the actual Organic seal you can’t really know for sure.

    • I just spent $116 dollars worth getting their pretreatment and leave in conditioner. It’s pure garbage!! The leave in and pretreatment felt like it was the same product just packaged as different products.

  10. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was
    super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any tips and hints for rookie blog writers?

    I’d definitely appreciate it.

  11. I’ve wanted to try some of these products, especially the ones you can’t purchase in stores. I’ve noticed that if you live in a highly “brown” or urban environment, these products cost 2 to 3 dollars more. Example, Shea moisture products cost about $10 when I lived further out with less brown people. Move to a new area, still not in the city but an increase in minorities and it’s anywhere from $12 to $13! Better to get offline or spend that on a product line that’s more consistently priced.

  12. Thanks for this list. I bought several products from the KeraCare line and was satisfied with the results. However, I did some research on some of the ingredients (ie..Propylene Glycol) and found that they are toxic and should be avoided. I will return the KeraCare products I bought and purchase products that are closest to natural as possible. I really don’t believe all organic/natural products are chemical free either, but they are better than most conventional products that are on the market.
