If you’ve been hunting for an organic conditioner, welcome to your new favorite list (bookmark it now and thank us later)! To build this list of top organic conditioners, we started our research with over 200 “real” products. By the end of the day, only 17 truly natural conditioners matched our expectations. In order to be included on this list, each organic conditioner had to conform with the following standards: 1) MUST include organic ingredients 2) MUST NOT include sulphates, parabens, phthalates, formaldehydes, oxybenzone, ethoxylated ingredients, polysorbates, phenoxyethanol, petrochemicals, triclosan, TEA / DEA, synthetic fragrances and colours, and everything else from our list of banned ingredients.
Switching to an organic conditioner can require a little patience on your part. Natural conditioners rely on vegetable oils, vitamins, and other great organic conditioner ingredients to replenish the hair from the inside out. When you completely extract the chemical contaminants left over from traditional cosmetics, your hair may simply feel drier and more messy by using an organic conditioner. You’ll need a basic apple cider vinegar hair detox to extract this build-up easily. What you need to do is blend 1⁄4 cup organic apple cider vinegar with 2 cups of water and vigorously clean your hair with this solution once a week.
Now, here are the best organic conditioners you can find on the market today!
