Only 3 Best Herbal Shampoos With Enough Reasons To Use Them.

Have you ever wondered about going all natural about your daily hair care?

Or maybe you just need a push to make the switch.

Trust me, I can talk all day about why you should never use these synthetic shampoos.

Come with me.

Just pick up your regular shampoo/conditioner and look for ingredients in them.

Do you see any of these on the list?

– Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)
– Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
– Lauramide DEA
– PEGs
– Ammonium Laureth Sulfate


These are the main culprits that stand between you and your desired beautiful lustrous hairs.

These harmful chemicals attack your immune system and disturb your hormonal cycle.

These toxic ingredients are what makes your shampoo suds up into a thick foam.

You must be wondering, why do manufacturers add those weird sounding chemicals in their products in the first place.

Well, because they are very cheap and allows the manufacturer to make more profit.

As the modern day shopper is becoming ever so more health conscious and environment-friendly, mainstream brands are looking for ways to reconsider their recipes.

But, I am sure they will choose to replace these ingredients based on profit first approach. Because these companies exist to make profits, no matter what.

In my opinion, you should make the switch to products that are based on natural and organic ingredients.

The whole purpose of this blog post is to assist you in making the switch wisely.

About The Brand “BIOTA Botanicals” and review

BIOTA Botanicals is a Europe based company and specializes in making solutions for thinning and damaged hair using their proprietary herbal blend known as ‘BioComplex B11’.

All of their products are based 100% drug-free and plant-based natural ingredients.

I came to know about this shampoo from a friend who suffered from Hashimoto. She couldn’t stop praising about this new shampoo she started using after a recommendation from a nurse.

I was a bit skeptical at first but once she told me about all the ingredients that this thing has, I made my mind to give it a shot. Because, I have used some them as herbs and I know they are effective.

You can use this shampoo daily as you would use any regular shampoo.
It works best if you pair it with biota botanicals advanced herbal care conditioner.

You can also use it on dyed hairs without any effects on the hair color.

After a month of regular use, I noticed a drastic improvement in the overall texture of my hairs and growth.

My husband Brad, who is 39 started using this after noticing the effects on my hair and there is no looking back.

Also, the shredding reduced exponentially.

This one of those very few brands in the cosmetic industry that delivers the claims that they made on the label.

The shampoo has a very natural smell.

Biota also makes a serum, but I haven’t used it.

Thats about it guys.

I’m one of those people who involuntarily reach out for all the yummy-sounding hair oils on the department shelf and cannot resist making the purchase. As a result, I have a whole shelf full of EO bottles that have long passed their expiry dates. So Winter Blend came as a jolly blessing, because it does the work on my behalf. With the delicious EOs blended into the Shampoo and Conditioners, it is zero effort for me. I get the essence of the oils into my hair, and also save time blending it myself etc. Hair feels great, smells so good and plus I’m protecting it from harmful scents and chemicals. It’s an all-win situation for me. Thank you for making such a great product. I think I’ve found my stable hair care range
