Building the Best Shampoo for Men

Building the Best Shampoo for Men

Everything you want (and then some).

The best hair is healthy hair. And whether you’re a twice-per-day showerer or a twice-per-week showerer, you’re going to want the right shampoo. Similar to how a Face Wash gently removes impurities -- dirt and oil buildup, etc. -- Shampoo moisturizes and strengthens the hair strands. The best shampoos for men battle common concerns such as hair thinning, dandruff, itchy scalp, and more. As with all of our products, when building our Shampoo, we wanted the best. Here are some of the attributes we took into consideration when creating the Huron Shampoo:


Clean hair effectively.

Who doesn’t love a good lather? Our gentle, sulfate-free shampoo is built with a plant-based surfactant (coconuts!), which provides a rich and moisturizing creamy foam. This lather is equal parts refreshing as it is cleansing - washing away daily oil, sweat, and flakes. Plus the smell of citrus and juniper will leave your hair smelling fresh, too. Curious when to use shampoo, in general? Shampoo is best when you need to clean the hair -- post-workout, post-sweat or post-anything that might result in sweat, pollutant exposure (hey there, environment), or grime.

Vitamins and Essential Oils.

Argan Oil and Glycerin in the Shampoo are both plant-derived ingredients that help attract and seal moisture to the hair, and restore smoothness, shine and softness. Our Shampoo also contains, Biotin - a water-soluble vitamin that’s a part of the vitamin B family. It plays an important role in the health of your hair, skin, and nails. And while deficiency is rare, a Biotin-deficient diet can lead to hair loss. Take -- or in this case, apply -- your vitamins.

Battle against thinning hair.

According to the National Library of Medicine, 53% of men will have ‘moderate to extensive hair loss’ by age 49. While Father Time might not be on our side, our Shampoo might help prolong the *cough* inevitable. Vitamin E and Panthenol work to decrease the appearance of thinning hair and to reduce oxidative stress in the scalp, which has been linked to hair loss. Sounds like a winning combo, right?  

Made without the bad stuff.

You may or may not be familiar with some of these chemicals. Our silicone-free shampoo offers the same rich lather as with the use of silicones, but without the potential negative side effects including reproductive and developmental concerns. Sulfates, a popular surfactant (i.e. ‘detergent’) used as a cleansing agent and responsible for foaming action, can damage the hair and scalp by stripping away naturally occurring proteins and oils. Instead, we use Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate -- a mild, gentler sulfate-free surfactant derived from coconuts. Plus, our products are always made without parabens, phthalates or aluminum. 


So regardless of your shower cadence, be sure to grab a Shampoo that's going to keep you looking your best day after day!
