Which is a Best Shampoo For Hair?

Commercial Shampoos have a lot of sulphate, alchohol and chec=micals in it that are too drying for hair. Below are some of my favorite natural shampoo products

1. Natural powders

My favorite is Shikakai and Aritha natural powders for hair wash. But it is time consuming and it also gets messy.

Try this from Amazon

2. Natural Shampoo Soaps

These shampoo bars are made with pure oils and is so good for hair. It lathers a lot, cleanses a lot and removes dandruff and scalp issues. Once you state using this, you will never go back to the commercial ones.
