With so many choices in the green aisles at your local grocer’s, going organic is not always easy, especially when you’re used to using run-of-the-mill shampoos and conditioners.

Philip Pelusi, the owner of Tela salon in New York City, offers some tips on finding the perfect organic shampoo.

1. Read the ingredients: Choose products free of harsh parabens and always avoid sodium laurel sulfate. Borage oil, horsetail, white tea and rosemary are some of the most recognizable organic ingredients known to moisturize, strengthen and regenerate the hair and scalp.

2. Understand the lingo: It’s only truly organic if it has the USDA Organic Certified or Certified Organic label.

3. Keep it up: Organic shampoos and conditioners are good for you and the planet, offering all the needs of your hair and scalp without polluting water or soil. Plus, most organic hair products also contain important anti-oxidants to keep your hair looking and feeling healthy.

Here are some SheFinds quick picks to start with: john masters organics Evening Primrose Shampoo, for Dry Hair, Aubrey Organics Glycerin Protein Balancing Shampoo, All Hair Types and Burt’s Bees Super Shiny Grapefruit & Sugar Beet Shampoo. Other great organic brands to check out are Kiss My Faceicon and Avedaicon.
