“Traditional” and “organic” are the two main types of shampoos and conditioners available in the stores. While traditional hair care products

have the advantage of being generally cheaper than organic shampoos and conditioners, the latter have been proven more effective and less

threatening to the user’s hair.

The question now is whether wise consumers like you would want something cheaper but hazardous to health rather than the other products, which

may cost a bit more but are healthier, cleaner and more effective. You simply acant fford to use something cheaper but riskier, over something

superior, can you?

Is my Shampoo Organic?

Many organic shampoos and conditioners have an ingredient called organic tea tree oil. This natural material has been incorporated in organic

shampoos and conditioners because of the health benefits that it offers. For instance, tea tree oil is an effective agent for the treatment of

various skin diseases and ailments - particularly dandruff, blisters, burns and bites. This ingredient works by being an antiseptic agent,


meaning it cleanses the hair and scalp through killing the harmful microbes on them, causing relief from scalp irritation and hair thinning.

Beta glucan is another proud natural material than can be found in many organic shampoo and conditioner products. Beta glucan is a substance

that can improve the immunity of the person using it - both inside the body and out, or on the skin. It aids in relieving inflammation of scalp

cells, relieving the scalp from excessive itchiness and possible pain.

Coconut oil, herbal extracts and vitamins and minerals are the most common other compositions of organic shampoos.

Remember that any shampoos containing the following are NOT organic products:
?zinc gluconate
?methyl propyl paraben
?olefin sulfonate
?DEA, or diethanolamine
?steareth-2

Organic vs. Traditional

Organic shampoo and conditioner products are mainly composed of rich vitamins and minerals, natural oils and herbal extracts. You’ve surely

seen TV commercials talking about traditional hair products that contain natural ingredients like coconut oil and aloe vera. However, when you


look at the labels of these products, you may notice that they really contain small amounts of natural ingredients, and the synthetic materials

outnumber them. Remember that the more synthetic materials used, the more harmful the product is for the body. On the other hand, organic

shampoos are generally composed of all-natural materials and may only contain a little synthetic material just to facilitate the effects of the

natural ones.
