Herbal Volume Adding Shampoo
In another post on this website, I have written about Organic Volumizing Shampoo. In this article, I want to focus more on a specific organic shampoo, namely herbal volume adding shampoo.
In this article you’ll learn more about the following aspects of this type of shampoo:
- What is herbal volume adding shampoo?
- Who should use it?
- What are the best brands?
Let’s start with the first topic.
What is Herbal Volume Shampoo?
Herbal shampoo (if it’s a good quality one) is a shampoo that has added herbs (and sometimes spices) from which your hair will supposedly benefit. The claims to those benefits are not the strongest. If there are any benefits than it is for your scalp, and not so much for your hair.
In another article on this website, you can read why volume-boosting shampoos actually work.
Where herbal volume-enhancing shampoos differ from ordinary shampoos is their smell. Herbal shampoos have a very distinct smell. Some people love it and will never want anything else. Others don’t like the smell at all.
The typical herbal ingredients are:
- Passiflora Incarnata Flower Extract
- Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract
- Aloe Barbadensis Flower Extract
- Almond Glycerides
Who Should Use It?
Herbal shampoos can be a very good remedy when you have (very) dry hair. This could also go for chemically treated hair.
Other than that there are no specific benefits to either men or women. In other words, if you want to (or believe in) a herbal shampoo, you can do so whether your a boy or a girl.
What are the Best Brands?
Before I list the best brands of herbal shampoo, a word of caution. Real good herbal shampoos (volumizing or not) do not have the best smell.
So in order for these types of shampoos to smell nice, manufacturers can add a lot of chemicals to produce a pleasant smell. In other words, watch out for (any) shampoo that smells too nice, or unnaturally perfumed.
The chemicals in these perfumed herbal shampoos will stay in your hair, and can potentially damage your hair.
On to the best brands
The following are a selection of brands of herbal volumizing shampoos. As always there are more brands available. A simple Amazon search will help you there. However, we want to serve you by offering you a limited, but excellent list of quality shampoos.
