1) Coconut Hair Mask with Rosemary


Essential oil of rosemary leaf adds a really nice zing to this incredibly conditioning mask. You only need a small amount, applied to dry hair, to reap the benefits of this coconut oil-based treatment mask with ingredients culled from organic farming. ($44)

2) Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner


A good pick for summertime, this duo was created to hydrate and nourish hair that’s taken a beating. Lots of plant-based organic goodies from this California-based line, including borage, jojoba, and sunflower seed oils, as well as rosehip and cranberry seed oils. ($12 each)

3) Feed Your Sunshine Hair Serum


Show your hair a little love before you dive into that (chlorinated) pool or step into the ocean. This powerhouse of a serum is great for pre-swim and post-sun. It’s also a wise pick for those who’ve wreaked havoc on their hair with color and other chemicals. Contains organic aloe vera, tea tree, and lemongrass oils. ($29.50 to $107.20)

4) Dry Hair Nourishment & Defrizzer


A little dab will do you—as in a just a few drops of this nourishing, certified-organic oil. Formulated with olive, primrose, cedarwood, and lavender oils, to name a few, this is a luxurious hair-care line worth the bucks. ($20)

5) Finishing Treatment


An outstanding natural hair-care line developed by a New York City couple that spent a lot of time traveling and working with native tribes of the Amazon Rainforest, this creamy treatment works wonders on dry, coarse hair and adds a nice shine. Certified-organic ingredients include raspberry and green tea extracts. ($45)

6) Sweet Spirit Leave-In Conditioner


Use this super-concentrated and lovely, lightly scented conditioner (with tamanu oil, honey, and lavender) on wet or dry hair to detangle and refresh. Nicely hydrating, it’s ideal for the summer months and comes in a pump-spray bottle that can be used to spritz your hair when the spirit moves you. ($22)

7) Mongongo Banana Shampoo


The name of this nourishing shampoo may be a tongue twister, but it’s good stuff—and pays homage to the iKung people of southern Africa, who long ago discovered the natural, UV-protecting, protein-rich goodness of mongongo nut oil. ($18)

8) Biotin B-Complex Shampoo & Conditioner


This is a good natural option for anyone looking for a thickening shampoo and conditioner that won’t break the bank. Contains certified organic ingredients, including aloe leaf juice, carrot root and avocado extracts, as well as biotin and vitamin E. ($11 each)

9) Organic Herbal Shampoo


Made by hand in small batches, this family-run company makes its own extracts and prides itself on the raw goodness of its products. This one contains a proprietary blend called Dr. Alkaitis’s Hair Roots & Scalp Herbal Complex that gives hair a healthy luster. Certified organic and wild-crafted ingredients include aloe-vera gel, wild chamomile, garden sage, and greater nettle, to name a few. ($50)

10) Pink Hair and Scalp Mud


A cult classic made from red clays and apricot kernel seed oil, this is a serious treatment for hair that needs extra nourishment and care. Soothing extracts of bergamot and nasturtium make it even more of a pleasure to apply. ($69)
