Healthy hair is something that everyone strives for but can be hard to achieve. There are so many hair products out there in the world, how is the average person supposed to know what the best option is? Well the first thing you should know is natural ingredients are the best ingredients. The chemicals that are in some hair products may be great temporarily but can have awful long-term effects on your precious locks. We will give you the run down on what the best natural ingredients are for your hair.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is one of the best ways to naturally nourish your hair the way it needs to be. Not only does coconut oil encapsulate around your hair strands, but it then penetrates your hair follicles to provide the moisturizing that they need. Coconut oil is something that’s great for all hair types and will especially work wonders with dry or damaged hair. The best natural hair conditioner will have coconut oil as one of its main ingredients, so keep an eye out.

Avocado Oil

Another great nourishing ingredient, avocado oil will give your hair the shine you’ve been looking for. A lot of nourishing oils tend to weigh your hair down, but you won’t have to worry about that with avocado oil. If you have breakage or dry hair, definitely look for products that have avocado oil in them. You won’t regret it!


Seaweed may sound like a crazy thing to want to put in your hair, but you will be grabbing for seaweed-infused products in no time once you hear some of the benefits. Controlling your natural oils can be hard, but seaweed has been found to reduce the production of those oils. Not only that, but it also helps promote hair growth. Two in one!

Olive Oil

Head to your kitchen and grab the olive oil, you are going to want to have it ready. Being very similar to the natural oils that your hair produces, olive oil will do wonders for dry or damaged hair. Use it as a conditioner or give your scalp a little massage with some of it, you will be amazed at your results.

Aloe Vera

We all know the miracles that aloe vera does for sunburn, but it can actually do the same for your hair. Being rich in vitamins and minerals, aloe vera is a great way to hydrate your locks. Whether you use it on its own or in a product, you will surely be seeing nourished hair in no time.

Cocoa Butter

Yet another amazing natural way to hydrate your hair. Cocoa butter is a great option if you need serious hydration. If your hair is too fine though, you may want to stay clear. It’s a heavier moisturizer and may weigh down your hair. But that means it’s a perfect option to hydrate thick hair and keep it free of frizz!

Green Tea

While it’s not one of the most common natural hair ingredients, it should be. Green tea is something you should reach for if you experience hair loss. It not only will help stop your hair from falling out, but also stimulate hair growth. Scalp dryness and dandruff can also be helped with green tea, so give it a try!

Keeping your hair products natural is easier than you may have thought it would be. There are so many amazing options out there, we weren’t even able to list them all. Whether hydration is your top concern or if you’re all about hair growth, there is something natural out there for you to have in your everyday hair routine.
