If you want to take care of your hair, you’ve come to the right place — Heliotrope offers the best natural hair products in San Francisco. Handmade in small batches, we ensure that all of our products only contain the good stuff! Whether you’re dealing with dry air and a lot of sunlight, or wind with lots of fog, the climate can do some damage to your locks. Even temperate weather can take a serious toll on your hair, not to mention the salt in the air coming off the bay. Between that, and the hats you’ve been wearing through the damp winter, your hair is at risk of serious damage.
Don’t let the elements get the best of you! We’ve got the best natural hair products for you, no matter what type of hair you have or what type of damage you’re trying to repair or prevent.
No matter the type, you can keep your hair nourished, healthy, and happy with these natural hair products:
Babassu and Hibiscus Conditioning Shampoo
One of our best natural hair products, this conditioning shampoo is on sale right now!
Babassu oil, or cusi oil, comes from the babassu palm, in the Amazon. A kind of vegetable oil, it’s non-drying, and an effective emollient. It’s solid at room temperature, and can be applied to melt on your scalp, providing a gentle cooling sensation.
Like coconut oil, Babassu oil moisturizes and cleanses gently, without stripping hair, while the hibiscus extract keeps hair shiny and manageable. This keeps hair healthy, too, with wheat and soy amino acids to strengthen the hair follicles themselves. Since it doesn’t strip anything away, it’s gentle enough for everyday use.
Olive Leaf Protective Shampoo
Olive leaves are high in a compound called oleuropein. That’s a polyphenol with a range of health benefits, especially against age-related diseases, like arthritis. It lowers blood pressure, improves heart health, and can help to ward off neurodegenerative diseases and strokes, by mitigating or treating the risk factors.
As for your body, olive leaf, used topically, is great for your hair. This shampoo promotes healthy hair growth while it cleans and conditions — perfect for using after a trim. Loaded with antioxidants and amino-extracts, this shampoo helps to rebuild damaged hair, preserves color, and promotes shine. Double up, with the companion detangling conditioner!
Olive Leaf Detangling Conditioner
Most damage to your hair comes from manipulation. As you comb or brush it, or detangle it with your fingers, you damage the individual strands. Over time, this kind of handling causes split ends, dullness, and other damages. That’s why it’s so important to use a good conditioner.
The companion to the olive leaf protective shampoo, the detangling conditioner helps ease tangles and snarls, and protects hair against breakage, to prevent split ends or damage. The olive leaf acts as an antioxidant, maintaining color and scalp health, while the pracaxi oil keeps hair smooth and shiny. Aided by wheat protein and other amino acids, this conditioner elasticizes and strengthens hair, making it, and the companion shampoo, some of our very best natural hair products.
Panthenol Shampoo & Conditioner in One
The only all-in-one shampoo and conditioner on our list, the Panthenol is a mild cleanser, especially for the scalp, with strengthening properties for the hair that helps to seal in moisture. Panthenol is a provitamin of B5.
If you’ve not previously encountered the term, a provitamin is a substance which the body will easily convert to a vitamin. They’ve also been called previtamins, but the two words are interchangeable.
Panthenol has been used to treat sunburns, wounds, certain rashes or inflammation, and it’s often recommended as a moisturizer for fresh tattoos. It’s a wonderful humectant (it keeps things moist) and it’s gentle enough to be used on contact lenses without issue.
Panthenol binds to the hair shaft, forming a protective coating that keeps moisture in and blocks against damage. Besides that, Panthenol can even mend split ends.
Keeping this one fragrance free makes it great for those with sensitive skin, sensitive noses, or other health concerns.
Jojoba and Panthenol Nourishing Conditioner
Another conditioner with Panthenol, this nourishing conditioner is another one of our best natural hair products. We saw how Panthenol, a B5 provitamin, binds to the hair’s shaft to create a protective barrier, but with the addition of Jojoba oil, the conditioner adds elastic properties and prevents dryness.
With this mix, you’ve got deep conditioning, with no build-up or dull film. It’s particularly good for hair that’s been blow-dried, color-treated, or just plain worn down. You’ll be giving yourself shinier, softer, more manageable hair, and a happier scalp, after even just a few short weeks of regular use. Don’t be afraid to use this one daily – your hair deserves it!
Lemon and Olive Scalp Treatment
Some of the best natural hair products aren’t shampoos or conditioners, but therapeutic scalp treatments. This healing oil blend has anti-inflammatory properties, to help keep your scalp healthy.
Lemon oil in particular has a ton of benefits, especially for hair and skin-care, which makes it a perfect scalp treatment. It’s stimulating, detoxifying, anti-infection, antiseptic, and antifungal, and it’s great for reducing excess oil.
Like olive leaf, olive oil is also great for the skin. It’s been used as an antibacterial for thousands of years, and it’s great for eliminating acid buildup.
Inspired by professional spa treatments, lemon and olive, coupled with coconut and grape seed oil, and a host of other natural ingredients come together to relieve dandruff, heal scalp irritation, and add a certain luster to your hair.
This scalp treatment really is more than the sum of its parts. It’s not just that it’s made from amazing ingredients, it’s how those different parts work together to balance each other out and keep your scalp feeling healthy, without irritation or itch, and free from hotspots, dandruff, and dryness.
Shea and Cocoa Butter Hair + Beard Pomade
This all-natural pomade (doubles as a beard oil!) keeps your hair neat and trim, adds shine, and provides a non-damaging styling option that keeps everything nice and tidy. It’s solid at room temperature, but melts just at body temperature. That melting opens up the cypress and lavender or clove and geranium oils to give you that sense of wellness and calm through the day you should expect from one of our best natural hair products.
