Commercial Shampoo Ingredients

Commercial shampoos contain harsh chemicals that are harmful to our health. What inspires us is that foamy, heaven-smelling goodness that lathers up in our hair which contains many harmful ingredients.

Ammonium Lauryl Sulfates or Sodium Laureth Sulfate: Sulfates help shampoo mix into water, creating the foaming texture you get when you massage your hair. These cleaning agents are so harsh, they can damage the hair, make it brittle, and increase frizz. They can also cause allergic reactions in people with sensitive skin.


Parabens: Parabens added as a preservative in many hair care products to prevent the growth of bacteria in shampoos. They can cause several problems for your hair like drying, irritation of your scalp, hair loss, and fading hair colour.


Sodium chloride: Sodium Chloride, which is also known as Table salt, is used as a thickener in shampoos and conditioners, but It promotes dryness and even develops itchy scalp – which irritates you all day and makes you embarrassed in front of people.


Dimethicone: Dimethicone is a very popular silicone found in a lot of hair products. It forms a barrier on the outer layer of hair, which makes the hair look extra shiny. Basically, Dimethicone is like plastic and it gives the illusion of shine to our hair, but it is not the shine we want- it is a fake shine from the plastic.


Tetrasodium ETDA: It is a water-soluble ingredient used as a “chelator”, which decreases the reactivity of metal ions in products and stops the growth of moulds and other microorganisms. This ingredient is a penetration enhancer, which means it breaks down the skin’s protective barrier, making it easier for harmful ingredients in the formula to sink deeper into your tissues.


Plastic Packaging: We all know that plastic is affecting our oceans, but still commercial shampoo producers are not switching to the alternative packaging. This is the most toxic ingredient of all! Natural Shampoo Bars are known to be plastic-free because they are not in liquid form.

Transition period

There is some transition when you switch from the commercial shampoo to a natural shampoo bar. It may take time for your hair to adjust. When you start using the natural shampoo, your hair or scalp can become oily or dry or even switch between the two polarities. There may be some frizz and the scalp may feel waxy. This is your hair saying: What’s going on? Because they got used to all the artificial enhancers and forgot how to do their work. But the good news is that the transition period is just a phase and it will end, your hair will adjust and you will be rewarded for sticking to it.

This transitional period can for couple of weeks. It really depends on how impaired your hair already is, and how often you used commercial shampoo with SLS/Parabens and other ingredients.

How to prepare your hair for natural shampoo bar

“ Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet”

The very first thing you need to do when switching to natural shampoo is to be patient. I know our generation wants instant results, but do you know that instant results are always shown by harsh chemicals. Natural holistic herbal products never show instant results. Now decide it whether you want instant but harmful results for your hair or slow but beneficial results. You all are well aware of the fact that the patience accrues you the much desired results.

When you switch to natural shampoo bar, stop using the commercial shampoo and conditioner, because chemicals in commercial shampoo will not let the natural ingredients of natural shampoo to get inside your scalp and inhibit their functioning.

Try to use a natural conditioner along with a natural shampoo bar for divine results.

Select the shampoo bar according to your hair.

Use apple cider vinegar for rinsing out the chemicals from your hair.We recommend giving your hair a couple weeks to adjust when first switching over to a shampoo bar.

In this advanced era, we all prefer to use cruelty free products because natural products contain essential oils, vitamins, herbal extracts and so much other goodness. Our natural shampoo bars are parabens and sulfate free and they also don’t have SLS ingredient, which means they don’t lather up as well. But that doesn’t mean they don’t clean your hair properly, just give an extra rinse and wait for the magical results.

So our natural shampoo bars take some time to show their results, but it will be worth waiting for.

Shampoo bars may not lather as well, but still have a creamy softer lather that does not strip your hair of your natural oils like sulphates do. Lack of chemicals means no further damage to your hair. Plastic-free means you are saving the world from plastic pollution. Vitamins and essential oils in shampoo bars will give your hair extra nourishment and shine to your hair, making it healthy and beautiful.
