Why I Use An All Natural Shampoo

Is it necessary to use an all natural shampoo? After all it’s just going on your head. You’re not eating it or drinking it. So why do shampoo bottles sometimes have an organic label?

For some reason people think that eating foods that are free of chemicals is important. Anything else you use on your body doesn’t really have to be. If you are not ingesting it then it’s ok. I don’t really understand this way of thinking. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and while it is there to protect the body from toxins, anything put directly on your skin will get absorbed into your bloodstream. Pretty similar to eating it.

When using shampoo you are massaging it into your scalp, the skin that covers and protects your head. Do you really want to be doing that with a chemical laden formula? Read the label. Any ingredient not pronounceable or easily understandable usually means it’s a chemical. Your typical shampoo bottle will contain about twelve such ingredients.

I actually looked up these ingredients. Reading about their chemical makeup and their use as solvents and other nasty things really was a wakeup call to me to switch over to products that contain easily understandable ingredients. There are very few on the market today. Of those that exist only one brand really does a good job of cleaning and moisturizing hair while at the same time feeding the scalp nutrients so it can continue to grow healthy hair.

This brand is Pura d’Or. They make one of the only one hundred percent natural shampoos available today. It’s called ProOrganic and is available at 2minuteclub.com. Its aloe vera juice base soothes the scalp while the essential oils that make up the bulk of the ingredients nourish the hair. I can read and understand every single ingredient on the bottle. I rest easy knowing that the stuff going so often on my scalp is safe and healthy.
