On my journey to toxin free (more like low tox at this point), hair products are one of the swaps that took me YEARS to make.
Don’t get me wrong, over the years, I’ve tried quite a few non-toxic or toxin free hair products, but they just did not work for me. These products left my hair with a lot of build-up, my hair would get greasy so quickly, but my hair felt so dry!
So, I always resorted back to toxic hair products…
Recently, like within the past year, I’ve FINALLY found toxin free hair products that actually WORK! They don’t leave my hair feeling like it has a bunch of residue on it. I can do multiple days without washing my hair. These products make me feel like I’m using toxic products without the toxins!
The products I’m going to mention in this post are:

The Attitude shampoo is INCREDIBLE! It’s EWG Verified toxin free and it actually works! Seeing the ingredient label, you may be alarmed that it says “Fragrance” at the end. Don’t be! Attitude actually discloses their fragrance ingredients!
(The ingredients with an asterisk after them are the fragrance ingredients. The asterisk comes before the word “Fragrance” letting you know that the asterisk ingredients are the ingredients in “fragrance.”)
I love that this Shampoo is available on Amazon and at Wegmans!
The Attitude conditioner isn’t as good as their shampoo (in my opinion), but it’s still so much better than any other toxin free conditioner I’ve tried!
Again, they disclose their fragrance ingredients just like in the shampoo. I’ve tried the same formulations of the Attitude conditioner as the Attitude shampoo and I definitely have the same favorites…Volume & Shine and Nourish & Strengthening.
I will say, I do not like the Moisture Rich conditioner. It leaves my hair with a residue just like the other toxin free conditioners I’ve tried, which I really don’t like. But the other formulations are really good! Not as good as a toxic version, but good enough that the Attitude conditioner is worth using over a conditioner with toxic ingredients.
And again, I love that it’s available on Amazon and at Wegmans. It makes it so much more accessible!
Innersense Leave-In Conditioner:
My hair girl recommended I get a leave-in conditioner because my hair gets really dry and frizzy which makes it look damaged. I asked my instagram followers for a good toxin free leave in conditioner and they came through!
The Innersense leave in conditioner is INCREDIBLE! I apply it to damp hair and it really helps with the frizz and it makes my hair feel so much softer!
What I love most though is it works without making my hair feel greasy and without leaving a residue! (Can you tell yet that I HATE that residue feeling on my hair…)
The Innersense leave-in conditioner is toxin free and it’s available on Amazon and at Ulta!
Also, I’ve been using the same bottle since June, I use it every time I wash my hair, and it’s not even half gone. It will definitely last me an entire year if not longer.
I like to use a little oil on the ends of my hair to keep them from getting too dry. Honestly, the best oil I’ve ever used for this purpose is Coconut Oil!
I just take a little dab, rub it in my hands, then apply it only to the ends of my hair.
The best part is, you can get Coconut Oil literally anywhere, it’s cheap, it has so many other uses too, but it really does work well!
Here’s another item you can get at any grocery store or on Amazon…Arrowroot Powder!
Is it just me or does dry shampoo make your hair feel like there’s a residue in it? I’ve tried multiple toxic dry shampoos in the past and they all left my hair feeling disgusting.
Arrowroot powder soaks up the oils at your roots to leave you with fresh looking hair! It doesn’t give me that residue feeling either.
I like to apply Arrowroot Powder with a powder makeup brush! I just dip the brush in the Arrowroot powder and dab it on my roots.
Arrowroot powder is so cheap and it will last way longer than a can of toxic, aerosol dry shampoo!
I hope this helps you on your low tox journey! If you have any questions about ingredients or want to know about any brands, let me know in the comments! Or if you’ve tried any of these products, I’d love to know your experience with them!
