Shampoos can claim they're made with things that sounds really holistic—willow bark, mint, and oat milk—but that doesn't mean the formula isn't packed with harsh chemicals. And when we do use a super-clean hair shampoo, the formula is often lacking: without sulfates and other chemicals, natural shampoos can leave hair feeling limp. Luckily, natural and organic shampoos have come a long way, and the latest formulas cater to all hair types: from dry curls to oily, dyed, and even thinning hair. Here, our 12 favorite natural and organic shampoos to make your hair routine a little more green.
