Best Natural Shampoos for Healthy Hair

Ancient Living Shampoos for healthy, strong, and silky hair


Everyone loves good hair days, but what if we told you that Ancient Living has the solution to make every day a great hair day? We all know how important hair care is to maintain our luscious locks. And it is not always easy giving it the care it needs because of pollution, stress, harsh chemicals, and living unhealthy lifestyles.

While the markets are flooded with numerous options to choose from for every type of hair, these chemical-based shampoos can cause a lot of irreversible damage in the long run. These shampoos contain harmful chemicals like sulfates, parabens, and silicones which you should stay away from if you truly care about your hair.

To truly make your hair healthy from the root to the ends, we suggest natural shampoos. If you are looking for a good natural shampoo, then you have come to the right place. This article is a comprehensive guide on what are natural shampoos and how you can pick the right one for you!

A Brief History of Shampoos

Before we discuss natural shampoos, it is quite interesting to explore how shampoos have evolved to what they are as we know them today. The story behind washing our hair is at least a thousand years old and humans have been doing it for as long as we’ve had hair to wash.

Focusing on India, our rich multicultural heritage played a significant role in coining the term ‘shampoo’. The word Shampoo is derived from the Hindi word ‘Champo’, which is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Chapayati’ which means ‘to soothe’. It became a part of the English language during the colonial era.

Ayurveda has been the heart of our existence and our ancestors used to rinse their hair using different ayurvedic extracts and herbs since the early days. The earliest effective shampoo dates back to 1500 AD and was a boiled concoction of Reetha (soap berries), Amla (gooseberry), hibiscus, Shikakai (Acacia), and other natural ingredients and it was strained and then used for hair wash.

What are Natural Shampoos?

Natural shampoos are shampoos that do not contain the harsh chemicals and detergents that dry out the hair but also cause overproduction and secretion of oils. The formulation of natural shampoos does not contain ingredients like sulfates, phthalates, parabens, or artificial fragrances which damaged your hair under the pretext of nourishing it.

Why Choose a Natural Shampoo?

Unfortunately, as consumers, we tend to fall for marketing gimmicks and end up purchasing chemical-based bath & beauty products which are not good for your body. This means you could potentially be using toxic chemicals and not know the impact they could have on your health. What you put on your body, is just as important as what you put in your body – and this includes your hair care routine! This is why at Ancient Living, we highly suggest you choose organic because once you go natural, you’ll never go back!

How to Choose The Right Shampoo?

Just like skin, everyone has a different hair type and it is important to choose the right product for you based on your hair type to properly cater to and care for it.

  • Fine Hair: This type of hair are quite thin and can get oily very easily so it is advisable to avoid cream-based shampoos and instead go for a gentle formulation to protect your hair.
  • Dry Hair: Dry or coarse hair is quite hard to manage and can get tangled a lot which leads to split ends and damage. We suggest opting for moisturizing shampoos to keep frizziness at bay and tame the hair and nourish it,
  • Oily Hair: This hair type can be tricky to handle since the oils are oversecreted on the scalp. Adding more cream or moisture will only make it more oily so going for a neutralizing and balancing shampoo is important to strengthen and keep your hair soft.

Apart from this, if you have any specific hair concerns like dandruff, split ends, hair growth, etc. choose products and ingredients that would help resolve these problems and nourish your hair.
