Why You should STOP using your shampoo!

Why You should STOP using your shampoo!

Perhaps you’ve never noticed what is actually in your hair washing products. Let’s have a look at the main suspects found in conventional shampoos.

Why we need an alternative?

1. A lot Shampoos have sulphates (SLS/SLES). It’s what makes them foamy and bubbly – fun, yeah? – NO!!

These are toxic ingredients that brands use as they are cheap an allow them to make more money but they are as harmful as they are practical. While effectively cleansing, sulfates strip all the natural oils from our hair causing it to become dry and brittle. It is linked to all sorts of scalp irritations, immune problems and with excessive use, can even contribute to cell damage. Not to mention they might become contaminated during their production with other chemicals that are actually carcinogenic.


2. Another culprit for hair damage found in drugstore shampoos is the word   FRAGRANCE. Every time you see these big red lights should go off in your head as no one actually tells you what’s in that – most of the times these are synthetic, petroleum-based smells used to mask the chemicals that are in the shampoos and are linked to hormone disruptions.

3. Moving along we have Parabens – the chemical preservatives that keep fungal and microbial organisms. Parabens can mimic the hormone estrogen and since it is likely they are absorbed from our bodies during topical use they can cause hormonal disbalance. They are also irritants leading to problems for people with a sensitive scalp.


Natural shampoos are exactly what they sound like. They are made from pure ingredients only found in nature. These shampoos do not have any hazardous chemicals like sulfates, parabens, silicones, coloring and etc. that harm healthy hair. Choosing a natural alternative allows you to be confident about exactly what you’re buying and the ingredients you and your family are exposed to.


As part of our "2021 - TOGETHER" campaign we asked our loyal customers to guide us with the development of our family business and tell us what we their needs are. Overwhelmingly the answer was “We need natural shampoos that we can trust.”.  So of course, we looked into the mater.

Why are they beneficial?

Natural shampoos contain skin loving ingredients that gently cleanse your scalp and hair without stripping their natural oils. The plant-based ingredients in these shampoos promote hair growth, elasticity, body, and shine since they nourish the hair instead of relying on synthetic build up for effect. Since commonly used products irritate and damage the natural balance in our hair switching to pure ingredients often can help resolve scalp issues like dandruff and seborrhea. For scalp problems cutting irritants and synthetics is definitely a must.

Since launching our Organic Clary sage water against seborrhea and our Wild Nettle water for hair loss we know how many of our customers struggle with such systematic issues and we were more than enthusiastic to support their efforts and offer a shampoo that is clean, nourishing and as always with our products – relies on the natural properties of organic essential oils.

What you can expect when switching to a natural shampoo:


  • The shampoo doesn’t foam: Build up from synthetic products can prevent the natural sulfate-free shampoo from foaming well the first couple of uses when making the switch. Additionally, it is important to later the product beforehand in the palms and to double cleanse if necessary. Although it is essential for the bathing experience - the foaming itself does not contribute to the actual washing it just helps spread the product so don’t be quick to judge the effectiveness by the lack of bubbles.
  • The scalp feels oilier/The hair feels heavier: The constant use of harsh oil striping chemicals in drugstore shampoos harms the protective barrier of the scalp and disrupts its balance. Your hair is just accustomed to overproducing oil to compensate. Additionally synthetic styling products are hard to wash off naturally and may stay in the hair causing it to feel heavy and oily. Your hair just needs a few washes and consistency in your detox from chemicals.
  • The hair feels tangled and coarse: Silicone heavy conditioners and styling products coat the hair strands causing them to feel sleek and look shiny but they actually prevent them from getting nourishment and ruin the hair structure by increasing its porosity. Once you are free from the build up your hair will start restoring and you’ll just need to be a bit patient before you feel the difference.

Upon switching to a natural shampoo, you will need a few washes to adjust but we promise you it is so worth it
