Can a Natural Shampoo Help Boost Fine Hair?

Our fine-haired friends know the struggle is real when searching for the best natural shampoo to lift away oil and buildup without weighing down fine strands. We want it to be clean, deliver results, and support scalp and hair health. We want weightless volume and shine. We want lifted roots and hydrated, soft ends. We want va-va-voom. While we can't all be blessed with thick, luscious locks, a natural shampoo tailored to fine hair makes a noticeable difference.


Why Switch To A Natural Shampoo?

Gone are the days when a frothy, foamy lather was only possible with a shampoo loaded with stripping detergents like sulphates. Today, natural shampoos are formulated with clean ingredients sourced from nature that are gentler on both your hair and the environment. They avoid harsh chemicals like sulphates, parabens, and synthetic fragrances (psst. you won't find a single product with artificial fragrance in our shop), opting instead for botanical extracts, essential oils, and nourishing plant-based ingredients. And they work into a rich, creamy lather just the way we like it. Here's our lineup for the best natural shampoos for fine hair in 2024.


The Best Natural Shampoo To Add Weightless Volume To Fine Hair

When it comes to fine hair, it's best to look for volumizing shampoos that provide lift and viscosity without weighing the hair down. The Innersense Organic Beauty Pure Harmony Hairbath is a sulphate-free, 100% natural, gentle cleansing shampoo that adds volume and vibrancy to fine hair. Coconut and rice bran deliver a very gentle cleansing experience while quinoa, shea butter, and avocado oils nourish and strengthen. These organic ingredients work together to leave hair healthy and voluminous. Plus, it has a gorgeous citrus scent! Follow with the lightweight Pure Inspiration Daily Conditioner for a silky smooth finish. 

GK ProTip: Generally, only your scalp area requires a good cleaning. If the ends of your hair aren't collecting product buildup, you can skip shampooing the length of your hair every other wash or so.


The Best Option For Colour-Treated Hair

The 100 Percent Pure Shampoo in Kelp & Mint is a velvety natural shampoo that purifies the hair and scalp while adding bounce, body, and lustre. Kelp thickens the hair, while organic seaweed adds shine, making hair healthier, stronger, and glossier. Gentle enough for colour-treated hair, this all-natural formula does not contain synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, chemical preservatives, sulphates, detergents, or any other harsh ingredients. Follow with the 100 Percent Pure Conditioner in Kelp & Mint for colour-safe moisture. 

GK ProTip: Those with fine hair often feel the need to wash it daily, as it tends to get oily quickly. Much like the skin on your face, overwashing fine hair can trigger more oil production, requiring you to wash your hair more often. This has the opposite effect on your scalp, leading to dryness and irritation. Washing your hair less often also means less blow drying and heat styling.

The Best Shampoo For Added Shine

Fine hair wants to be hydrated without looking flattened and weighed down. The High-End Hippie Awaken Shampoo Bar incorporates hydrating ingredients like hydrolyzed quinoa protein and pro-vitamin B5 to moisturize the hair without compromising its volume and texture. This all-natural shampoo bar creates a full lather and stimulates circulation with the invigorating aroma of rosemary and peppermint oil. The botanical infusion of lavender promotes circulation to the scalp for fuller, thicker-looking hair. Hydrolyzed quinoa protein and pro-vitamin B5 add shine, body and bounce. Follow with The High-End Hippie Awaken Conditioner Bar to add some gloss. 

Bonus Points: This waste-free natural shampoo bar aligns with the values of our clients who prioritize green beauty and sustainable practices.


The Best Natural Shampoo For Fine Hair And An Oily Scalp

A gentle, clarifying shampoo that does it all, from rebalancing roots to gently hydrating lengths, Vault Hair Care Sweet Orange + Blue Tansy Vegan Shampoo is an all-natural, vegan, and sulphate-free shampoo that supports a healthy scalp and adds shine to fine hair. Aloe Juice is the star ingredient in this formula, acting as an effective hydrator to protect delicate hair from dryness and frizziness. Follow with the Vault Hair Care Sweet Orange + Blue Tansy Vegan Conditioner for weightless hydration. 

GK Pro tip: Really great hair—healthy, strong, glossy strands—starts at the root. It takes a healthy scalp to grow healthy hair. Stimulate circulation and show your scalp some love with the Clear Quartz Scalp Massager from Innersense Organic Beauty.
