Looking to make the switch to a more eco-friendly shampoo for a more healthier head of hair that really shines? Ditching plastic bottles is one thing, but finding the best natural shampoo for your hair type and needs is another. Believe me, I know how difficult it is to find the best shampoo bar for your hair texture and colour. I know this because I have tried so many myself here.

I'm Carley, one of the co-founders here at Friendly Turtle, and I think its about time we talk about what the best organic and natural shampoo bars are for your hair. And what experience do I have in serving this valuable and accurate advice, I hear you say? Well, firstly, I was a hairstylist for 13 years in a super popular hair salon in East London (cool ain't I). Secondly, I have tried every single shampoo bar that we stock, plus 20+ more that we do not.

So, basically, I’ve done the hard work for you. I’ve personally researched, tested, and selected the best natural shampoos around right now to help you choose the right one. So, keep reading to find the best shampoo bars and eco-friendly liquid shampoo options on the market!


How to Choose the Best Shampoo Bar for Your Hair?

We all have different hair textures and needs. And that’s what you have to keep in mind when choosing the best shampoo (bar or liquid option) for you.

For that reason, I’ve put together the best natural shampoos to suit a range of preferences, textures, and specific needs. So, without further ado, here are the best shampoo bars and natural liquid shampoos.


Best Natural Shampoo - My Top Picks:


The Hydrating One – Kind2

For those who want to try a shampoo bar for the first time, I highly recommend trying one of the best shampoo bars I've ever used: The Hydrating One. And that’s because you won’t have to struggle with any transitional period where you're hair tries to adjust to all-natural ingredients. Plus, it is made with natural surfactants to leave your hair super soft and manageable too

Here’s why it’s one of the best natural shampoos: From the first wash, it made my hair feel clean, soft, and more voluminous!

  • Perfect Choice For: Normal, dry, curly, and coloured hair.
  • Free From: Soap, sulphates, silicones, and parabens.
  • Plastic-free: Comes in a cardboard outer.
  • Vegan and Cruelty-free
  • Made in the UK
  • Unisex


Beauty Kubes Shampoo Cubes - Eve of St Agnes

Don’t feel like using our favourite shampoo bars and fancy something a little different? In that case, you definitely need to try these Beauty Kubes Shampoo cubes then.

Why do I think these cubes are one of the best natural shampoos? Because they cleanse my hair and leaves it really soft without drying it. And I don't mean too soft where it feels like the body's been taking out of it either. Instead, my hair feels more nourished and shiny.

But that’s not all, the lather also works perfectly as a body wash to condition the skin!

  • Perfect Choice For: All hair types (available for normal/dry and oily hair types)
  • Plastic-free: The cubes are wrapped with home compostable film.
  • Sulphate, Silicones and Palm oil-free
  • Vegan and Cruelty-free
  • Made in the UK
  • Unisex


Miracle Shampoo - Moo & Yoo

Looking for natural liquid shampoos? Miracle Shampoo from Moo & Yoo is one of the best natural shampoos to try. From the first wash, this salon-quality shampoo kept my hair clean and moisturised for days. Plus, my hair didn’t get tangled after using it - it was unbelievably manageable.

They also have a Miracle Conditioner too, but frankly, I don't think it's possible for your hair to feel any smoother and softer after using this so I wouldn't bother unless you absolutely felt you needed it. I probably shouldn't be telling you not to buy the products we sell, but I'm being honest.

Oh and what's more, is one bottle lasts for aaages. You literally need a tiny amount to wash a full head of hair and I got about 4 months out of one bottle (I wash my hair every other day).

  • Perfect Choice For: All hair types, including dyed hair.
  • Packaging: A glass bottle with a reusable plastic pump. After your first purchase, you can keep the plastic pump and purchase your natural shampoo with an aluminium lid.
  • Ingredients: Natural and ethically sourced ingredients.
  • Vegan and Cruelty-free
  • Made in the UK
  • Salon-quality


Solid Botanical Shampoo Bar with Lime & Coconut - Bain & Savon

This option from Bain & Savon is one of the best shampoo bars on the market. I was impressed when I first used this shampoo bar. Unlike most options, it lathers almost instantly and has a natural floral scent. But why is it one of the best natural shampoos? Because it leaves your hair squeaky clean, soft, and shiny!
  • Perfect Choice For: Dry/itchy scalps, split ends, frizzy and dull hair.
  • Free from: Parabens and SLS.
  • Plastic-free: Come in recyclable tins.
  • Vegan and Cruelty-free
  • Made in the UK
  • Palm oil-free
  • Handmade

This natural shampoo has a lovely smell and it made my hair look more voluminous, shiny, and soft. So, I think we should consider it one of the best natural shampoos!

It leaves your hair clean, soft, and healthy without drying or causing any irritation to the scalp! Oh, and it has a wonderful, easy to make lather which can sometimes be hard with solid shampoo bars
