Organic Shampoo Demystified: Nurturing Your Hair the Natural Way; Does Organic Shampoo Have Chemicals?

My fellow hair rebels, it is time to discover why organic hair shampoo reigns supreme. Buckle up as we dive deep into the world of organic hair care and uncover the truth about nurturing your locks that natural way. 

Demystifying Organic Shampoo: Chemical Talk

Let's cut through the BS and address the burning question: "Does organic shampoo have chemicals?"

Well first, we need to discuss what “chemical” actually means. Some people toss around the word "chemicals" like it's a dirty word, but not all chemicals are created equal. So, let's cut through the noise and get real. Basically, a “chemical” is a substance that cannot be broken down without changing it into something else. Water, oxygen, and gold are all chemicals. Paper is not a chemical—it is a mixture of lots of other substances that can be separated.

So yes, you may see a bunch of tongue-twisting names in our ingredients, like Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, and Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, which are technically “chemicals”. But don't let those names scare you! These babies are natural ingredients derived from coconut oil. They're surfactants, which means they help cleanse your hair. Think of them as your hair's personal cleaning squad, doing the dirty work to get rid of all the gunk.

Polysorbate 20 and Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate (also “chemicals”) come from plants and veggies, and while they might sound like a mouthful, they're just additional helpers, making sure the shampoo works its magic. They assist in creating a luscious lather and ensuring the formula spreads evenly through your hair. 

Terminalia Ferdinandiana is the scientific name for Kakadu Plum, Microcitrus Australasica is Finger Lime extract, PCA, Glycine, Valine and Phenylalanine (all organic chemicals) are the building blocks of proteins that strengthen and fortify your hair, the list goes on...

See what we’re getting at? Organic shampoos do contain “chemicals”, but they’re the kind of chemicals that Mother Nature approves of. George Stay All Day Clean Shampoo keeps it real with a blend of natural and certified organic goodness. So you can rock your hair with confidence, knowing you're ditching the harmful man-made, unnatural chemicals and embracing a cleaner, greener alternative.

What is different about Organic Shampoo?

The most common follow-up question here is, “So which ingredients should I avoid?”.  Well, you asked for it, let's talk about those harsh oil-stripping chemicals that you should keep an eye out for. We don't want anything messing with our fabulous hair game, right?

One chemical that can be a troublemaker is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). This bad boy is known for its foaming properties, but it can be quite harsh and strip away your hair's natural oils. It's like a rebellious streak gone wrong, leaving your locks feeling dry and out of sync.

Another troublemaker is Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate (ALS), which is similar to SLS and can have the same oil-stripping effect. 

Notorious troublemakers Triclosan and sneaky Phthalates are also impossible to ignore - these unnecessary chemicals can cause havoc not just on our hair, but also on our precious scalps. Itchy and irritated?  We might have found the culprits!

And let's not forget about Parabens. They're preservatives commonly used in hair care products, but they can mess with your hair's delicate balance. Some rebels claim they might even disrupt your body's natural hormone levels. No thank you!
