Aaargh, am so completely over eco-friendly shampoo. Has anyone else found any that actually works? Not to get your hair clean I mean – although sometimes even that seems too much to ask – but that doesn’t leave it either stringy, lank, frizzy or dry as straw? Because I sure as hell haven’t and my research now definitely qualifies as extensive.

I’ve tried Burt’s Bees (effect similar to using baby shampoo – dry, flyaway), Bumble and Bumble (dull, lanky), Aubrey Organics (stringy, grubby-feeling), Liggetts bar shampoo (dry again), Max Green Alchemy (dry and brittle) and even the No-Impact Man concoction of Dr Bronner’s castile soap, filtered water and olive oil (like straw). The worst bit is that even if they don’t work, I feel compelled to use them to the last drop to avoid waste, especially given they all come in plastic bottles about which my angst is growing daily (I read this article via No Impact Man)

To be fair, I am perhaps overly obsessed with shampoo – I must remind myself that I had these issues with the chemical-laced stuff too whenever I strayed from Kerastase (which is why I always found my way back) - and in a strange paradox am also both incredibly lazy about getting my hair cut (I know it might help if I did this more than once every 8 months) or doing anything with it (besides washing it) and yet a trifle vain about it.

So, dear readers, can anyone help, or should I borrow the hubby’s clippers and consign my glossy long brown barnet to the recycling bin of history - along with the Kerastase bottles?

The ultimate in eco-friendly shampoos has got to be Aveda. It's proper salon quality haircare, and has plenty of different shampoos to choose from.

Shampoo swap when you get back!!! I think mine's called EO. Smells lovely and the lavender conditioner is nice too. Hope your weekend's been lovely. x

I'd be wary of Aveda, there's quite a bit of research out there stating that Aveda uses parabens. Interestingly enough, a full ingredient list is NOT available on their website, hmmmm.
As for Shampoo, I just bought some Giovanni to try out, all of their products have a low hazard score on EWG's SkinDeep Report, and their Nutrafix Conditioner as well as their spray and cream leave in conditioners are amazing. But alas, I have only just purchased the shampoo and must try it, I'll keep you posted!

I use Nature's Gate's line of haircare. We live in the high desert and are constantly battling dryness and frizzies but I've been especially happy with the Aloe Vera moisturizing shampoo and conditioner and think it does a good job re: damage control.

HAve you tried Phyto? It is packaged in Aluminum or glass and is one of the first eco friendly shampoos. Won't contaminate ground water and uses essential oils. so it uses the power of plants to get your hair to behave.
