Clean Beauty Product Guide: Shampoo
These shampoos will keep that pretty hair clean and healthy without potentially toxic ingredients!
You’ve probably heard the concerns that some of the common ingredients found in shampoo have also been questioned for being carcinogenic. Some of the key ingredients that have caused concern include fragrances and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. If you are looking to eliminate potentially toxic ingredients from your beauty routine, a clean shampoo is a good place to start. Here is our list of clean shampoos that will help you achieve beautiful, healthy hair.
Our Pick: Marco Color Moisturizing Shampoo
Marco Pelusi refers to this shampoo as “everything free” – sulfate free, paraben free, gluten free, and even salt free. “Therefore, it’s a perfect choice for anyone and everyone who is looking for a very special shampoo formula – for people who are quite careful about ingredients – specific to people who have smoothing treatments on their hair and can’t use sulfates – and also good for anyone who is sensitive to gluten – and the list goes on,” says Marco. The main purpose of the shampoo is to preserve color and to prevent premature color fade. It also will moisturize dry hair.
