10 Best Organic Shampoos For 2018
It is every woman’s wish to have the best frame for their face – GORGEOUS HAIR!!
In order to have this wish fulfilled, it is not just about the hairstyle, but more importantly about:
- the hair care involved – proper and consistent hair practices
- the diet
- hair vitamins
- use of hair appliances
- hair products
In this article, we will be looking at hair products, namely the Best Organic Shampoos for 2018.
It seems that the Moroccan Argan Oil is the winner for 2018. Its hydrating, rejuvenating, gentle cleansing properties are a common ingredient in most of these top 10 organic shampoos for 2018. I think that any one you decide to try, your hair will be happy and so will you!
1/Art Naturals Organic Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo
This shampoo is a wonderful treat for any type of hair. It is ‘chock-full of goodness’! Argan Oil is a well-known hydrating and moisturizing oil. As a part of this shampoo’s ingredient, it goes without saying that it will be gentle on your hair.
Other great ingredients like jojoba, peach, avocado, and almond oils are oils which impart hair growth, hair sheen, and softness to your hair. It is no small wonder that they refer to this shampoo as liquid gold, and not only because of the argan oil, but the whole combination of all the oils.
Art Natural brand has a standard of 100% natural, paraben-free, and cruelty-free products. The main ingredients of this shampoo are:
Water, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauro- Am-phoacetate, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Sodium Lauryl Glucoside Carbo-xylate, Lauryl Glucoside, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Acrylates Copolymer, Coco-glucoside, Glyceryl Oleate, Polysorbate 20, Argan Oil, Phyto-keratin, Peach Kernel Oil, Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Pseudocollagen, Camellia Seed Oil, Natural Vanilla/Honey Fragrance, Avocado Oil.
This shampoo is one you need to have in your arsenal to help with taming your frizz, moisturizing your tresses, enhancing your shine, and ‘and is guaranteed to restore and strengthen weak, damaged, brittle hair, reviving healthy shine, softness, and luster while delivering healing moisturizers and keratin‘.
I would give it a try, you have a lot to gain and the price is reasonable. And there is a shampoo and conditioner duo that you may even consider trying in order to have that synergistic effect. Using the shampoo on its own is great, however, using the shampoo and the conditioner will optimize the combination of both formulas.
2/Maple Holistics Argan Oil Shampoo
Another great shampoo for your hair. It is infused with all the best ingredients that will make your hair soft, hydrated and moisturized, strong, frizz-free, and shiny. Some of the more popular ingredients are argan oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil and peach kernel. It also has Vitamin A, B1, B2, D, and E which are stalwarts of beautiful, healthy hair.
This shampoo is also touted to help in rejuvenating hair growth (especially for those suffering from hair loss), moisturizing dry hair and nourishing the scalp with the help of silk proteins and phyto-keratin. It helps to thoroughly cleanse the scalp and prepare the hair follicles to continue on their growth journey.
Here is a list of ingredients:
Aqua, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauroamphoacetate, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Sodium Lauryl Glucoside Carboxylate, Lauryl Glucoside, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Acrylates Copolymer, Coco-Glucoside, Glyceryl Oleate, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Glyceryl Caprylate, Glycerin, Sodium PCA, D-Panthenol, Argania spinosa (Argan) Oil, Botanical Keratin, Prunus persica (Peach Kernel) Oil, Prunus dulcis (Almond) Oil, Simmondia chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Camellia sinensis (Camellia Seed) Oil, Natural (Vanilla/Honey) Fragrance, Persea americana (Avocado) Oil.
You really can’t go wrong with any product whose base is Argan Oil. One use and I am sure you will be glad you did! Especially when you find products which stay away from using parabens, silicones, and sulfates in their ingredients.

Because the shampoo has Olive Leaf – it helps to hydrate and moisturize the hair follicles; Gotu Kola – it is also another ayurvedic source which will improve the hair length and density while preventing irritation and dandruff; Chamomile – which is loaded with anti-inflammatory flavonoids and antioxidants and helps to nourish and soothe the scalp.
This soapberry shampoo is safe to use on color treated hair for men and women. It is also dermatologist recommended for eczema, dermatitis, allergy and even hair loss. It is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and does not leave any oily residue.
One really great thing about this shampoo is that you can buy the unscented product and add any essential oil that you prefer to it before using. It is worth trying out and reaping the benefits of smooth, soft, and shiny hair.

Sometimes it is sold along with its synergistic counter-part – hair conditioner. Using both products together creates a synergistic effect and you are more able to see better changes to your hair after consistent uses.
7/Hair Dance Dry Shampoo Volume Powder 100% Organic

The Wonder Seed Hemp Shampoo – All Natural And Organic Shampoo has so many great ingredients that this combination will indeed do you hair a world of good. The green tea extract is well-known as a preventive for hair loss and helping to promote hair growth. The amazing coconut oil, aloe vera, glycerin, and jojoba are all known moisturizers that will make any hair look and feel soft as well as moisturized. The fact that they are all working together in one formula just ‘doubles’ the effect!
It helps to soothe the scalp and make your hair soft. It will also help regulate the oil/sebum production on your scalp with regular use. The ‘lather fact’ is not as in regular shampoos, so don’t expect it to be ‘soapy’, you may have to do a couple washes to get that ‘squeaky clean feeling’ – but in any event, it is a great natural and organic shampoo to try!
9/Baebody Moroccan Oil Shampoo
This shampoo is absolutely amazing. After the first few washes, you can feel the difference in your hair. It is so much softer and smoother to the touch. Undoubtedly, it has to be the Argan Oil and its other ingredients like the almond, jojoba, camellia, coconut, and avocado oils, and the botanical keratin which helps to make your hair feel the difference.
The oils are great moisturizers and the botanical keratin helps to smooth the cuticles and give that silky feeling. Its formula helps to hydrate your curls, and combat drying, as well as get rid of free radicals. It is GMP certified and FDA approved. It is sulfate-free and cruelty-free.
The shampoo is gentle enough to use on color-treated hair and all hair types. It is full of antioxidants and helps to replenish the natural hair cell structure while adding Vitamin E. Here is a list of ingredients:
Water (Aqua), Moroccan Argan Oil, Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil, Camellia Seed Oil, Botanical Keratin, Almond Oil, Coconut Oil, Acyl Sarcosine, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosine, GRECAT BTMS-350.
I would definitely recommend this shampoo for a trial run. Your hair will thank you times over for loving it so much. Baebody is a beauty and lifestyle brand whose aim is to promote a natural, healthy and beautiful lifestyle. I can see their progress in this shampoo formula.
10/Maple Holistics Sage Shampoo
This shampoo is a specially-made formula to help treat scalp issues like dandruff, hair loss, hair growth, anti-aging, and damage repair. The natural herb sage is its key component which helps in the elimination of scalp issues such as dandruff. The general feedback about this shampoo is that it works, after a few consistent washes in its elimination of dandruff flakes.
It is a gentle shampoo and has no harsh ingredients, no sulfates, is cruelty-free, color-safe for treated hair, and vegan-friendly. Here is a list of the ingredients:
Aqua, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauroamphoacetate, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Sodium Lauryl Glucoside Carboxylate, Lauryl Glucoside, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Acrylates Copolymer, Coco-Glucoside, Glyceryl Oleate, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Glyceryl Caprylate, Glycerin, Sodium PCA, D-Panthenol, Simmondia chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Botanical Keratin, Salvia officinalis (Sage) Oil, Prunus persica (Peach Kernel) Oil, Nardostachys jatamansi (Spikenard) Oil, Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree) Oil, Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Oil.
As its name implies, it is a very holistic way of caring for your hair using this natural and organic shampoo. The natural oils like jojoba, peach kernel, spikenard, tea tree and rosemary oils are such great oils that undoubtedly bring their ‘worth to the table’! I use rosemary essential oil mixed in with my natural hair oils combination and I cannot ‘rave’ enough about the goodness of this particular oil. That being said, I might even be a bit biased towards it use in this shampoo.
My Final Thoughts
Choosing an organic shampoo can be a challenging decision. However, with this list, you have a place to start and maybe finish. These shampoos all have their individual advantages. One must make a choice based on what works best for your own hair. Of course, if you are not sure, then get a small or sample size bottle and test a few products.
You have to realize as well, that in order for any product to work, you have to give it time to do its job. I would suggest a time frame of about a month of use of any product in order to see if there is a ‘friendship’ established between your hair and that particular product.
Much success on your hair journey. And remember, when all else fails, you can always DIY and here is an article about natural shampoos and a few recipes to help you, HERE!!
Nice article its very helpfull thanks for sharing
Thanks for visiting. I am glad that you found the article useful. Stop by anytime.
I love using organic products, so this article is especially interesting. Of course, there are organic products like ammonia that I’d never use, so being organic isn’t the whole story by any means!
I’ve been looking for a new shampoo. Your talk about Argan oil reminded me how much I have loved it when I used t in the past…I’d forgotten!
I’ve actually just put in an order for the Baebody shampoo. I’m excited to have it arrive and see how it works for a few months. I’ll let you know!
Thanks for stopping by. Great thoughts on things ‘organic’. You are so right, there are some things organic that you would dare not use for any health reason. I am glad that you found value in the article. Good luck on trying out Baebody and do stop by and let me know how it is treating your hair.
I really need an organic shampoo. I have tried all of the regular ones on the market and some more expensive ones and they just seem to strip my hair too much. Because my hair is naturally curly it is hard to find the right products for it in general. I have barely found a conditioner that will work for my hair for about three months then I will need to change my conditioner again so my hair continues to absorb the nutrients. Gotta love difficult hair!
Thanks for visiting, Brittaney. Your comment made me smile. Yes, finding the ‘one’ can be a challenge, but when you do, ‘hip-hip-hooray’ for your hair. If you look at the features of each suggested shampoo, you may be able to single out the best one for your hair. Just try a small bottle to see if it works. All the best.
