What is Shirley Price Aromatherapy 'Everyday organic' shampoo made of

The appearance of the hair is very important.  More and more questions are asked is there a natural organic alternative to conventional shampoos which are very efficient cleansers but which strip the scalp of its acid mantle.  Yes there is.

The Shirley Price Organic Shampoo Base Ingredients are: Aqua, Decyl glucoside, Lauryl betaine, Xanthan gum,Aloe barbadensis leaf Juice Powder*, Phenoxyethanol, Citric acid, Benzoic acid, Dehydroacetic acid *Certified Organic 70.2% organic ingredients

500ml of Shirley Price care For Hair 'Everyday organic' shampoo base costs £7.95.  This compares to £36.50 per litre from conventional designer shampoos like Frederic Fekkai (£31 a litre), Phillip Kingsley (£36.50 a litre), L'Oreal (£34 a litre).  Another conventional shampoo is Elvive Colour Protect (£9.60 a litre).  

They are great but none of them are organic.  Add essential oils as required like Shirley Price french or tuscan organic lavender for a relaxing evening shampoo or a citrus zesty shampoo for the morning wash.

Typical non natural normal shampoo ingredients found in these shampoos include:

Sodium laureth sulphate: the main detergent
Disodium cocoamphodiacetate: secondary detergent
Dimethicone: similar to silicone, helps shampoo glide through the hair
Glycol distearate: a thickening agent
Sodium chloride: common salt helps bind ingredients together and thickens the shampoo
Cetyl alcohol: makes shampoo feel thicker and softer, helps bind other ingredients
Cocamidopropyl betaine: another cleansing agent
Gylcol stearate: used to give shampoo a pearly sheen
Cocamide mea: thickens shampoo and creates foam
Cocamide dea: thickens shampoo and creates foam
Polyquaternium II: has antistatic properties that binds water to hair

Shirley Price Care For Hair 'Everday organic' shampoo is packaged in a stylish rectangular bottle.
