Why are organic personal care products so popular? It’s because they’re a naturally efficient solution in so many ways already. The spectrum of natural plants has traditionally been the source of most of our medicine, self-care products, perfumes, and hygiene products already. Plants are sources of essential oils, terpenes, alkaloids, peptides, amino acids, and other organic compounds that have proved useful. Why research harsh chemical formulas when nature’s laboratory has already been busy inventing countless compounds for millions of years?
In hair care products, the newest trend to gain traction is stem cell shampoo. Using plant stem cells, these products replenish the vitality of hair follicles by working with the body’s natural system of cell maintenance already. Plant stem cells, in general, have attracted attention in cosmetics research with all kinds of applications, and beyond cosmetics into the realm of medical research as well.
Here, we’ll take a look at the top-recommended natural and organic hair care products.
Cel MD Microstem Shampoo and Conditioner
For daily hair care needs, the Microstem Shampoo and Conditioner combo uses natural stem cells (in micro stem form) and essential oils found in ginseng, biotin, saw palmetto, plus other natural ingredients. The biotin is important because a deficiency in biotin, AKA vitamin B7, can cause hair thinning, skin conditions, and brittle nails. The patented formula in Cel MD promotes new hair growth and prevents hair loss. You can also eat biotin gummies to further help reduce hair loss.
Kaia Naturals Takesumi Overnight Detox
The concept of stripping pollution from the hair has been a long-established practice in hair care. Chemical buildup in the hair occurs not just from using non-natural hair care products, but from pollution, pollen, and daily sweat and oil. The scalp and hair is the most absorbent part of the body, which is why hair tends to pick up odors such as cigarette smoke. This is a spray-on formula that you leave in overnight, waking up with a fresh start for the day.
Cel MD Advanced Hair Supplement
For those suffering from hair loss and other problems of the hair and scalp, this treatment is meant to be taken in capsule form as a supplement. The Advanced Hair Supplement is a complex of essential B-vitamins and protein peptides, targeted at promoting the healthiest possible body nutrition profile to encourage good scalp maintenance. This has a sound scientific basis. Studies have shown that up to 15% of the population suffers from B-vitamin deficiencies, and the symptoms are broad and varied, including conditions of the skin and hair.
Alikay Naturals Leave-In Conditioner
Another spray-in and leave-on product, this is one of the most popular natural solutions for highly textured hair conditioning. Made with a botanical formula of lemongrass and aloe vera, this spray saturates hair to moisturize and condition it, while also having a pleasant scent.
Other natural ingredients that are good for hair:
There’s a wide range of organic products out there for hair care since it’s become the standard that shoppers ask for. Rather than list them individually, here are a few natural ingredients to look for in any hair care product.
Having one of these is a sign that a product is on the right track.
- Almond oil – Good for moisturizing the scalp.
- Cedarwood oil – It is also said to stimulate the scalp and promote hair growth, while having a pleasant scent.
- Chamomile oil – Great natural hair conditioner, and chamomile’s active ingredient, Bisabolol, is an essential terpene that’s practically a miracle drug on its own.
- Coconut oil – A softener and natural ointment. It also gives the skin and hair a glistening, dewy look.
- CBD oil – Studies have shown that CBD oil applied topically can help increase blood circulation and in turn reduce inflammation.
It’s even possible to buy some of these ingredients as stand-alone products, to supplement an existing hair care regimen. But it’s also easy to find these ingredients in many natural hair care products as well.
Our favorite hair-growing product with CBD oil is VEGAMOUR Gro+ Hair Serum.
