Pamper your tresses au naturel.
(SPOT.ph) Making the switch to more natural beauty products? Your hair regimen might be a good place to start. We already showed you some eco-friendly shampoo bars to try, but if you’re not quite ready to give up liquid shampoos, you still have the option to go natural. There are many natural liquid shampoos that have nourishing, plant-based formulas and are free from common shampoo ingredients like sulfates and silicones that can strip away color, protein, and natural oils.
Here are 10 natural shampoos to try now:
