Dr. Hauschka Shampoo and Conditioner

Dr. Hauschka is a German company that’s been making plant-based skincare products without synthetic colors or preservatives for 35 years, so these new hair-care products are a welcome addition to their legendarily pure line.

The shampoo doesn’t lather up like conventional brands, because it doesn’t use sodium laureth sulfite or lauryl sulfate (thickening agents that can strip hair and cause contact dermatitis). And it actually cleans better as a result, since those additives happen to be hard to rinse out. We’re also big fans of the defrizzing capacity of the jojoba conditioner, an excellent defense against frequent washings. And scent-sensitive people will appreciate the subtlety of the essential-oil fragrances. Available at Sephora stores or at your local natural market for about $14 each.
