Most of the shampoo you see at the drugstore or the grocery store is full of nasty chemicals that really shouldn’t be going on your hair, on your scalp or down your drain into the water system. You’ve probably heard that you shouldn’t use shampoo every day for this very reason, but have you considered switching away from regular shampoo altogether?
Our Top Pick for the Best Organic Shampoo
for Normal Hair
Maple Organics Holistic Argan Shampoo
Why we like it:
- Parabens, phthalates, fragrances and sulfates-free shampoo effective in treating dandruff and dermatitis
- Contains all-natural ingredients safe to use for both men and women
- Favored by a wide majority of users due to diverse ingredients and price
Why switch to organic shampoo?
- Some people absolutely need to wash their hair every day but regular product will dry it out
- Organic shampoo won’t damage the pigment in your hair; if you have dyed hair it will last longer with organic shampoo
- Organic shampoo smells amazing
- “Natural” product labels aren’t regulated but organic labels are held to strict standards
- Organic shampoo is great for highly sensitive skin
- Most organic shampoos flat out list all the ingredients; “scent” in regular shampoo can mean literally anything, which can sometimes lead to allergic reactions
- If you’re using a high quality organic shampoo you can use less of it than you would use of regular shampoo
This shampoo is a mixture of essential oils specifically chosen to encourage healthy growth. It is infused with a high concentration of Argan oil, one of the most widely renowned hair oils. This shampoo is particularly good for alleviating a dry scalp and providing moisture to hair.

Our Top Pick for the Best Organic Shampoo for Hair Loss
Regenepure DR Hair Loss Shampoo
Why we chose this:
- Great for both men and women fighting a hard battle against dandruff and hair loss
- Safe for colored and keratin treated hair & contains no harmful chemicals that may damage the hair and scalp
- Has more positive reviews from satisfied customers
Regenepure DR Hair Loss Shampoo is 1% ketoconazole, an ingredient which is known to stop dandruff and DHT buildup on the scalp, allowing your scalp to breath so your hair can grow more easily. It also contains vitamin B6 as a moisturizer and caffeine as a stimulant to encourage more hair growth.
This shampoo adds volume as well as stimulating hair growth to slow the loss of hair. You will pay extra for this shampoo but it’s not out of line with what other organic shampoos cost and is significantly less than some specialty shampoos.
Next in line is:
Revivogen Bio-Cleansing Shampoo
This shampoo has a variety of ingredients carefully chosen to target the hormone for male pattern baldness and slow hair loss. Many customers don’t find it as effective at the actual cleansing as their regular shampoo but report successfully slowing hair loss for several years.
There have also been reports of some scalp issues so you may want to test a tiny bit on your scalp before using it on your whole head. Of course, this can also happen with any shampoo as everyone’s skin is different.
Organic shampoo may be a little more expensive than regular shampoo but it will keep your hair healthier than it has ever been.
