9 Natural Hair Care Brands You Haven’t Tried Yet (But Should)

BY Gracee Tolentino · March 7, 2017


From the food on your table to the creams you slather on your skin, nothing gets past your discerning eye without the word “natural” on their labels. The same rule applies to your hair care products—and for good reason: Natural hair care products feed and nourish your hair and scalp in a way that leaves them healthier longer. And because they don’t contain artificial colors, fragrances and synthetic preservatives that might damage your hair over time, your hair becomes less susceptible to damage and breakage.

But buyer, beware. The term “natural,” when applied to personal care products including hair care, doesn’t really have a clear, legal definition in the U.S. This means hair care brands can use this term profusely on their labels even if only .001% of its ingredients is actually derived from nature. So how to deal?

Don’t worry, we’ve done our homework. Below, beauty buyer Vanessa Foote curates her favorite natural hair care products and brands on Dermstore.com.

2. Captain Blankenship

Vanessa Recommends: Captain Blankenship Golden Waves Sea Salt Spray

“Captain Blankenship is my favorite indie brand!  They recently won the Indie Beauty Award for best Hair Care products.  You can’t go wrong with the Golden Waves Sea Salt Spray.  Not only does it give you natural beach waves, the natural golden shimmer helps your hair glisten!”
