13 Organic SLS Free Shampoos that Do Not Contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate

13 Organic SLS Free Shampoos that Do Not Contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate

Here’s a great list for anyone who’s concerned about their hair. These shampoos are all organic and contain no sodium lauryl sulfate. There are loads more of these available so have a search on the web and see what you can find. My advice is this: ditch your current shampoo and choose an organic shampoo that’s free of sodium lauryl sulfate. Try to find one with lots of edible ingredients — it might sound strange but as a general rule, the greater the proportion of edible ingredients, the better the shampoo. And if you buy your shampoo from a supermarket, despite what the TV commercials say, it’s a terrible shampoo. The shampoos listed below are far superior to the big brand shampoos and will be much better for your hair.

  1. hi, i am 29yrs old mother of two kid.i am having severe hair fall and when ever i touch my hair it falls out. plz suggest some good shampoo and treatment.

    1. Hi Anindita,

      Hair loss is common post pregnancy. It can continue for some time after giving birth but usually regrows naturally in time. However some women’s hair can become a lot finer.

      If you want to regrow the lost hair it’s important that you start an intense hair nutrition program — in other words you need to intensely feed your hair using foods for hair growth and by feeding your hair directly via the scalp.

      I’d recommend you check out my 2 minute a day hair regrowth technique.

      All the best,


    1. Head & Shoulders contains zinc, which can help prevent dandruff. However it also contains SLS and other undesirable chemicals. It’s not the best shampoo that you can use to nourish your hair and scalp.

  2. Hi
    Congrats on a great, very informative and helpful website!
    I have a terrible habit of pulling loose hair from my scalp and sometimes I notice at the root a long white kind of oily deposit. Is this sebum? My hair has been thinning gradually over the last five years or so. I had a period of success three years ago massaging organic virgin coconut oil into my hair every night and washing daily with Nioxin shampoo, following with conditioner. Sadly this came to and end when I became ill. Now my hair falls out whenever I touch it and I lose a lot with washing and styling.
    I read somewhere that oil dissolves oil better than anything else and I wonder if this helped to unblock my hair follicles. I have had success with Nourkrin supplements but can no longer afford them. Their shampoo is said to have an exfoliating agent to cleanse the scalp thoroughly, removing DHT and sebum deposits. The reviews say it is very drying for long hair and also it contains many of the nasties I and others are looking to avoid.
    Please offer some advice as to where I should turn now. I should mention I am a 37 year old female.
    Thank you

  3. Hi,
    I am 25 years old. I use to have very thick hair but now it’s all thinned out. I have male pattern baldness. Current stage is norwood 3a with thin hair at the crown. 2 months a go i had a hair transplant done in India and Ive lost all the hair that was implanted and looks like it’s all gone wrong. Now ive done all my research and know this is a part of the process but spending so much money……it does make you wonder!

    Anyway for the first 3 weeks i was using special shampoo given by the doctor. He then told me to use baby shampoo thereafter. Since a few days ago I was using small amounts of baby shampoo each night to wash my hair. Now i read that it has SLS and stopped immediately. Have I damaged my new hair already?

    I have an oily scalp and wanted to know what’s the best shampoo for me to use and how often should I wash my hair. I apply minoxidil twice a day (morning and evening). Should this be done on a clean shampooed scalp to increase effectiveness or what?

    Your help would be much appreciated.


    1. Hi Amish,

      Don’t worry about the shampoo — it will not have had an impact on your hair. It is advisable to use a good quality shampoo like the ones listed above but there are other things that have a far greater impact on your hair compared with shampoo — such as DHT and stress.

      The problem with a lot of minoxidil products is they do not penetrate the the scalps surface easily, therefore are fairly ineffective. Some brands try to get around this by using things like ‘nanosomes’ to help deliver the minoxidil into the scalp. If you’re going to use minoxidil use it directly after washing and drying, but don’t expect impressive results.

      Your transplanted hair should grow back soon enough. I’d recommend encouraging it in every way possible. One of the problems your new hair faces is DHT, which is present in sebum (the oil you describe). This can be treated and is explained in the first part of my eBook.

      I’d recommend using either one of the above shampoos, or one of these: https://www.nicehair.org/hair-loss-treatments/what-is-the-best-shampoo-for-hair-loss.

      All the best,


  4. Do you think Aubrey Organics Men’s Stock Ginseng Biotin Shampoo is healthy? The ingredient list sounds pretty good. I’ve been using it for around 6 months, want to make sure it is a good, healthy shampoo.

    Thank you

    1. Hi Thom,

      Yes the Aubrey Organics shampoo looks good. I’ve had a look through the ingredients and it seems like a good shampoo.


    1. Hi Deborah,

      The Klorane shampoos are better than average but not quite good enough for the above list. However still far better than supermarket shampoos.



  5. My hair has thinned and has become half the volume in one year.My diet is alright.I used pantene,himalaya,sunsilk but none worked.The hair has also become dry and frizzy.Please suggest me a good shampoo that is also not very expensive.

    1. Hi nusrat,

      You really need to feed your hair. Hair becomes dry and brittle when it is starved of nutrients. The two most likely causes of this are stress and DHT. DHT prevents the hair from receiving nutrients and stress reduces the supply of nutrients to the hair.

      I advise that you begin a programme of intense hair nourishment such as the one described in my eBook.


    2. Nusrat, and anyone with similar problems: Get your THYROID checked. What you just described may be hypothyroidism, which is very damaging to your health – not just your hair.

  6. Please can you help me find the right shampoo for myself my hair’s falling and thinned I’m using nioxon (4) for 18 months…. want to use an organic shampoo without harsh chemicals can u help me to find some thank u

    1. These shampoos are available on the internet. The prices don’t vary greatly. I would suggest doing a quick Google Shopping search.
