For years, conventional hair care brands have been adding extra ingredients like sulfates, parabens, silicones, and pearlizing agents to make hair shinier. What many don't realize is that these ingredients actually work against hair health, often building up on the scalp and preventing healthy growth. Our favorite clean shampoos easily and completely rinse out of your hair, without sulfates and without all the extra load of chemical “benefits” some conventional shampoos deposit onto your scalp, leaving your hair truly clean, soft, naturally shiny, and healthy. These shampoos often leverage natural botanicals that leave your hair smelling great without stripping your scalp of natural oils.
Nourishing Shampoos for Every Hair Type
Great hair—the effortless, shiny kind that has the bonus effect of lighting up your entire face and improving virtually every outfit—looks different for everyone. Conventional shampoos often use chemicals to highlight (or hide) certain characteristics, which can strip the hair of its necessary natural oils, leaving hair dehydrated and brittle, which can cause breakage, split ends, and frizz. The key to great hair—whether it's curly, fine, colored or damaged—is caring for it with clean (made without ingredients known or suspected to harm health) products that promote scalp health. Our favorite hair care products aim to do just that.
Clean Shampoos for Color-Treated Hair
A good shampoo is the secret weapon for long-lasting, gorgeous hair color, and finding a clean one specifically for color-treated hair is well worth the effort. The shampoos we feature for color-treated hair fight dullness and brassiness like nothing else—which means you'll also be able to see the hair health benefits of going longer in between coloring.
Goop's Clean Bath & Body Product Standard
At goop, we’ve created our own strict clean beauty standards for what we call clean beauty, which you’ll see in action in our own skin care lines, as well as in all the clean hair, makeup,bath, and body products sold here. Clean, for us, means that a product that is made without a long list of ingredients linked to harmful health effects, which can range from hormone disruption and skin cancer to plain old skin irritation. To name a few of the offenders we avoid: parabens, phthalates, PEGs, ethanolamines, chemical sunscreens, synthetic fragrance, BHT, and BHA.
