The 25 best natural shampoos.

WRITTEN BY Grove Collaborative • 36 min read

Want to know the hair-raising truth about regular, traditional shampoos? They can be packed full of harmful chemicals, such as sulfates, alcohol, parabens, formaldehydes, and even synthetic fragrances, that are not only harmful to you but also to the environment, too. So, even though you might save a buck, traditional shampoos can do irreparable damage not just to your hair but to the planet, as well. A natural shampoo is the safer way you go when it comes to haircare.


Natural shampoos don’t bother adding in harsh chemicals and choose to use naturally derived ingredients that are better for your health and Mother Earth instead. When picking a product for your hair routine, focus on ingredients that nourish your hair type and explore our list below of the best natural shampoos to see options that might work best for your specific hair.


This list of products was determined by ratings and reviews from Grove members.

FAQs

What is dry shampoo?

Pressed for time and not able to wash your hair ... but you know it needs something to diminish that oily look? No problem — that’s where a good natural dry shampoo can come in. Dry shampoo soaks up oil from your hair so it appears to be cleaner than before you used it. It’s easy to use and comes in both aerosol and powder forms, although natural dry shampoos are usually in powder form. You can massage it into your hair for cleaner looking hair, which is great for after workouts or busy days when a shower just isn’t going to happen. Say goodbye to greasiness and hello to fresher-looking hair without having to use water.


Natural dry shampoos are awesome because they can work with any hair type, so you shouldn’t have to try it out to make sure it works on your hair.


Does dry shampoo work on natural hair?

If you’re someone who doesn’t dye their hair, you may be wondering if dry shampoo is something that’s for you. The good news is that no matter what urban legend you’ve heard about dry shampoos, they're okay to use on natural hair and still work their magic by soaking up impurities and grease. (Day-old hair — don’t care.)

Plus, finding the right natural dry shampoo is easier than finding the best natural shampoo and conditioner for your hair because most natural dry shampoos are great to use on all hair types, whereas shampoos and conditioners usually have specific ingredients that make them a good choice for a specific hair type. Natural dry shampoo even works on dry and curly hair, too, so you can feel confident when you add a dry shampoo to your routine when you don’t feel like washing or just can’t get to it for a day .. or two or three.


What are the benefits of charcoal shampoo?

Charcoal in self-care products has many benefits for you, and charcoal shampoo is no different. One advantage to charcoal is that it can help balance out your hair health. Read on to see some other life-changing benefits charcoal shampoo can bring to you and your hair:


  • Charcoal shampoo can help pull out toxins
  • It can help with dandruff and fungal infections
  • It can add volume to hair and restore its natural luster
  • It detoxes your pores to aid in faster hair growth

Some other cool things about natural shampoos, like charcoal shampoo, is that they’re paraben-free, sulfate-free, and can be used daily to gain the full bonuses of their pure detoxifying powers. A major must-have for anyone with greasy hair, charcoal shampoos are one of the best natural shampoos money can buy. See our other picks for the best natural shampoo and conditioners and choose a few to try out at home.
