Top Benefits of Using Organic Shampoo and Natural Shampoo – Is It Worth Making The Switch?

The Diane Team | June 10, 2021

Made from only nature-derived ingredients, organic shampoos or natural shampoos are known to bring extra benefits to the hair and scalp. Being free from parabens, additives, colorants and other synthetic ingredients, they are gentle on the hair follicles and skin.

Organic shampoos used to be only cherished by people with sensitive scalp and hair concerns, though the benefits stretch far beyond that! Here are some benefits of using organic or natural shampoos to help you decide if it is worth making the switch.

#1 Help To Retain Hair Moisture

Organic shampoos contain plant extracts with highly nourishing properties that infuse your hair follicles with natural minerals, keeping it moisturised and nourished.

Ingredients such as Organic Marula Oil is extracted from Marula Trees, touted as the “Tree of Life” as it is rich in nutrients. Nearly every part of the tree is used in medicinal formulations due to its exceptionally stable composition of antioxidants.

The Prickly Pear Oil is also rich in vitamins and antioxidants. Only approximately 8 tonnes of fruit is needed to extract just 1kg of the oil.

The exceptional moisture retaining properties and high nutritional value of these plant-derived ingredients help to effectively moisturise and retain moisture in the hair.

#2 A Natural Scalp Defender

All healthy hair start from a healthy scalp. The scalp plays important key roles such as maintaining healthy hair growth, controlling oil production, and it also acts as a barrier to defend the body from irritation.

Regular commercial shampoos are known to contain certain harmful ingredients, such as parabens and sulphates, that are unfriendly to the scalp.

These chemicals like parabens and sulphates dry out the scalp and reduce the size of hair follicles. This causes the hair to become weaker and increases the chance of hair fall.

On the other hand, the natural plant-derived ingredients found in organic shampoos and natural shampoos are full of rich nutrients.

When used, these nutrients and vitamins are easily absorbed into the hair to ensure a healthy scalp.

#3 A safer choice for sensitive skin

For those with sensitive skin or scalp, using regular commercial shampoos may cause allergic reactions, such as sore, redness, and itch, due to the harsh chemicals and ingredients present.

Organic shampoos are formulated using natural plant-derived ingredients, and are thus very gentle to the skin and scalp. They are also free of nasty ingredients such as parabens and sulphates, hence they do not aggravate the skin’s condition.

#4 Reduce your carbon foot print

By using organic shampoos or natural shampoos, you can also play a part in protecting the environment. Commercial shampoos and conditioners contain harmful chemicals such as silicones, parabens and sulphates, which runs a risk of polluting the environment when they are flushed down the drain.

On the other hand, organic shampoos and natural shampoos contain natural ingredients that can be quickly decomposed, which ease worries of poisoning the environment.
