Reviewing natural shampoos from Dr. Organic

Over the years I’ve tried so many natural shampoos and Dr. Organic was one of the shampoo brands that I’ve tried first. That’s because it was available to buy in Holland & Barrett and I was a regular shopper there. Now I wanted to revisit their shampoos and review the ones that I’ve tried and how they worked for me.

Dr. Organic Lavender Shampoo

The Lavender shampoo from Dr. Organic is my favourite shampoo from the brand. It’s great for those evening washes when at the same time you want to have some ‘me’ time and relax.

You can really smell lavender when washing your hair with Dr. Organic Lavender Shampoo. It’s so nice and I really enjoy using it.

Lavender oil has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties and does not only soothe and balance the scalp but it also has a calming effect on a person as it soothes the nervous system too which helps to induce sleep and relaxation.

The shampoo lathers well and my hair feels perfectly clean afterward.

This shampoo also contains aloe vera which strengthens the hair and makes it more manageable. But what I really like about it is that it’s very well suited to my greasy hair as it doesn’t weigh it down or make it greasy any sooner.

The shampoo is cruelty-free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

This is a great natural shampoo that I highly recommend and would definitely buy it again.

Dr. Organic Manuka Honey Shampoo

I bought Dr. Organic Lavender and Manuka Honey Shampoos at the same time when they were on offer and I was using them both over a period of time, just to see how they compare.

Dr. Organic Manuka Honey Shampoo

Manuka Honey Shampoo is ok but it’s not my favourite. To be honest, I am not a big fan of its scent, the lavender one is much nicer.

The main bioactive and organic ingredients in this shampoo are manuka honey, aloe vera and shea butter. They all work together to stimulate the hair’s keratin fibres and leave the hair restored and visibly healthy.

Based on its ingredients, this shampoo claims to have restoring, nourishing and strengthening properties.

While I am sure this shampoo helped my hair look healthier, I still preferred the lavender shampoo and this is more because of my hair type rather than anything else (and the smell). Basically, when using this shampoo my hair got greasier sooner than normal and that could be because there was still some residue left after a good rinse maybe? I don’t know but it just didn’t work for my hair. Maybe somebody with dry hair would get better results. It’s not expensive so it is still worth trying to see whether it works for you.

Dr. Organic Pomegranate and Aloe Vera shampoos

Finally, I also wanted to try some other Dr. Organic shampoos for comparison so I bought Pomegranate and Aloe Vera shampoos when they were on offer to see whether they impress me or not.

Nope, I wasn’t too impressed, my favourite Dr. Organic shampoo is still Lavender!

It’s not like there is something wrong with Pomegranate or Aloe Vera shampoo. But when using them nothing stood out for me.

I think the Aloe Vera shampoo is more suitable for dry hair as it’s really nourishing and softening. My hair looked great after use but the greasiness came back quite quickly. I think this shampoo would also be good for itchy scalp as it has soothing properties but you will have to test it yourself to see whether it really works.

The Pomegranate shampoo smelled quite nice and left my hair in great condition. Also, my hair wouldn’t get oily any sooner than normal. Unfortunately, it may have been discontinued as I cannot find it on Holland & Barrett website but you can still purchase it in other places (Amazon, for example).
