As part of our natural beauty awards, here’s our list—tried and true—of the top good-for-you hair products out there.


Best Natural Dry Shampoo

Beauty Awards Farmaesthetics Powdered Shampoo

Farmaesthetics Powdered Silk Dry Shampoo, $30,

“After I went three days without washing my hair, the product reduced the appearance of oil and increased body. It is more effective than salon-grade products I’ve used, which produced a stiff, sticky mess that could not be combed through.”
–Nellie Toy, Fairbanks, Alaska

Best Natural Shampoo

Beauty Awards Peter Lamas Soy & Baobab Oil Shampoo

Peter Lamas Soy & Baobab Oil Hydrating Shampoo, $20,

“I really appreciated that they have different versions (i.e., color treated, dry, etc.) with no para- bens, surfactants, and more, and that they keep prices affordable. I was very impressed that the founder’s personal experiences with cancer are what led him
to this work.”
–Dawn Wacek, Rice Lake, Wisconsin

Best Natural Scalp Oil

Balanced Guru Balanced Scalp, $23,
