12 Best Natural Hair Conditioners: EWG Rated & Human Reviewed

I've been waiting for you!

Yeah, you!

I knew eventually you'd go looking for a totally fabulous hair conditioner that would make you all kinds of gorgeous without making your body all kinds of messed up. 

And since you're here, you probably already know how horrifying mainstream beauty products can be to your health. If not, then take a quick peek at this list. (You might want to shield your eyes, cuz it's scary scary!)

5 Toxic Ingredients Commonly Lurking in Shampoo and Conditioner

  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) offers your body organ toxicity, development and reproductive toxicity, neurotoxicity, endocrine disruption, cellular changes and more
  • Diethanolamine (DEA) is a known carcinogen, which means it causes cancer 
  • Dioxane also causes cancer
  • Propylene Clycol, an ingredient commonly found in antifreeze, paints, tire sealers and more ... (SERIOUSLY?!) ... affects the liver and kidneys
  • MSG causes a host of symptoms, such as headaches, nausea, numbness, tingling, burning sensations, facial pressure, drowsiness and weakness

Kind of sounds like a TV commercial for some medication that's supposed to be all great, but might give you an uncontrollable urge to urinate ... and erectile disfunction ... and, oh, possibly death.

How This List Was Compiled

EWG

All of the Blissful Miss Best Lists are made up of products that are rated safe by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a well known and trusted organization that rates products according to their ingredients.  A rating of 1 is the safest, least toxic, with a 10 being the most harmful. The conditioners listed here are divided into EWG ratings of 1 and 2.

Amazon Reviews

The list is then narrowed down by those products that are sold on Amazon, and then further reduced by the best of those that have ratings of 4 stars or more from Amazon reviewers. 

So when you choose an item from a Blissful Miss Best list, you are getting a product that is both rated safe by EWG and well liked by consumers who have used it and took the time to tell people how much they loved it.

Disclaimer

The safety of products suggested by Blissful Miss is based on the Environmental Working Group rating system. This is not to say that every ingredient in and of itself is considered completely safe, but combined with several other safe ingredients receives a good rating by EWG. If you want to ensure every ingredient is up to your personal standards you are encouraged to read ingredient lists and do further research as you see fit.

Amazon Review Quotes

I absolutely love this conditioner! It works great, even in winter, and makes my hair feel so soft. I've been using it for several years now and still love it.

Another great product from Nurture My Body. With my weird hair, I was not expecting this conditioner to be effective, but it does the job......without a bunch of chemicals and junk.

I have long, wavy hair and I tend to go through bottles of conditioner quickly, but this conditioner requires a smaller amount and remains equally or more effective. After using the conditioner, my hair is smooth and silky and a comb goes through it easily.

  • Hair Types: ALL (seems particularly excellent for oily)

This yummy sweet orange scented conditioner is a fave among Amazon reviewers. Hemp seed is like a super food for your scalp, which can clear up dry, itchy, flakiness ... and eczema and psoriasis too. YESSS!

Amazon Review Quotes

I love the shampoo and conditioner! My hair is thick, curly and oily. I get no buildup, my hair feels clean and soft, AND it smells awesome! My biggest thing is these are so natural without all the chemicals. Definitely recommend!

I love this conditioner. Seriously love it. This is perfect for thick hair that tends to get oily. This conditioner is super moisturizing without the feeling of being oily or greasy. It has a delightful, light, fresh scent that stays with you all day. It's aromatherapy you can have with you all day! Try it and love it!

Amazon Review Quotes

I have 4a/3c hair and we all know super curly hair is prone to dryness. This kicks dryness in the butt. It is the only conditioner I have ever used that I can actually omit following with a leave-in and my hair will stay moisturized. 

Love this conditioner. I have naturally oily, very fine hair. I also strive to use only non-toxic or extremely low toxic products. The Hugo Naturals Coconut Shampoo/Conditioner are my favorite because they are non-toxic, smell good, and leave my hair clean and shiny without any oily residue.

I have super dry straight hair. Of all the natural conditioners with low ewg ratings this is the only one that worked for me. My hair is soft and shiny! The smell is less coconut and more watered down vanilla but I don't smell anything after my hair dries.


  • EWG - 1
  • Volumizing
  • Cruelty Free
  • 12 oz

Get uber moisture and lots of volume with this vanilla and orange infused conditioner. Reviewers love using it with its shampoo counterpart, also rated a safe 1 by EWG. 

Amazon Review Quotes

I love this conditioner. I have very fine hair and a lot can weigh it down. This does NOT! It has a nice scent (more vanilla than orange) and detangles wonderfully! I love that it is low on the toxic scale and a good price.

After using several expensive shampoo brands over the years, I chose this shampoo and conditioner because of its great score on the Skin Deep website. It has virtually no caustic or carcinogenic ingredients. The added benefit I didn't expect is this shampoo and conditioner actually make my hair the softest, strongest and shiniest it has ever been, including when I was using Aveda, Paul Mitchell, or other expensive shampoo brands. My happy surprise is this is fairly inexpensive. Love it, love it, love it!

Amazon Review Quotes

This stuff has been a Godsend. I have long, thick, color treated hair that is dry and unmanageable at times. I have looked for a long time for a shampoo that will make my hair soft and shiny ... I have had the Brazilian blow out and several keratin treatments. This shampoo and conditioner makes my hair pretty darn close to how soft it was when it was treated. I'll never have to have a treatment again thanks to this stuff! Bonus- it smells great!!!

Works SO well with my hair. I can go longer without washing my hair in the shower. Hair feels healthier and thicker!

Works great on my Afro-American hair. It made my 4C hair so soft and manageable in the shower. I just lean back and wash the conditioner out as I separate the hair with my fingers. I usually wash my hair in sections and braid in each section as I rinse out the conditioner. I did not need a scissor in the shower this time, because with other conditioners, I would have to clip knots out of my hair after detangling ... Please don't ever stop making this nor change the formula.


  • EWG - 2
  • Hair Types: Dry, Damaged
  • Restore, Heal, Grow & Strengthen
  • 13 oz (sold in 1, 2 or 3 bottle quantities)

If your hair is basically a mess, you know from processing and what not, get your gorgeous back with this super healing, super shine, super easy on the pocketbook conditioner.

Amazon Review Quotes

Using this along with the Shea Moisture shampoo has really transformed my hair. I have long, naturally red hair that is kind of wavy and very prone to frizz. Humidity is my nemesis. ... I just can't say enough how much I love this line and how much it has saved my hair. I used to always where my hair up because it was just going to turn into a mess anyways. Now I can where my hair down and style it with confidence knowing that it's not going to fail me by mid-day.

I'm mad I didn't buy this sooner.

I recently bought a VERY EXPENSIVE conditioner for a shameless price at Sephora. ... This conditioner is hands down, way better than Alterna. I like that it doesn't leave my hair all tangled so I'm breaking it while trying to detangle. Doesn't weigh hair down and my husband uses it as a leave in because he has thick course dry hair. It looks great!

Shea Moisture Conditioner

Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo is rated 1 by EWG and rates highly with Amazon reviewers.


  • EWG - 2
  • For Dry, Itchy Scalp, Dandruff, Eczema, Psoriasis
  • 13 oz

Not just for African hair, this stuff is the bomb for a multitude of issues, leaving you with a healthy scalp and glorious hair.

Amazon Review Quotes

I have scalp psoriasis and have tried just about every product on the market. This conditioner by far is the best product I've used. Not only are my scalp flakes gone but my hair also smells great and is soft and manageable. I would highly recommend this product!

Love this stuff! I wished they still sold it in stores. Its almost impossible to find now ... I love the fact that I can use this conditioner as a leave in. It detangles amazingly and it smells great. I have thick 3c-4a hair & it detangles, moisturizes and defines my curls with ease. 

I use this for eczema I get on my scalp. Works wonders. MAGIC. Stops the itch and clears up the dry spots.

I have Caucasian hair and I love this conditioner ... I truly agree with the bulk of the reviewers that this hair care line is really amazing. I particularly enjoy patronizing a small family owned business, especially one that makes such excellent products. 


  • EWG - 2
  • Hair Types: Dry, Damaged, Natural or Color Treated
  • Leave-In Conditioner
  • 7 oz

Turn your dry frizzies into shiny supple-ies with this most excellent leave-in conditioner that comes with a most excellent price tag. You'll be all "how come nobody told me about this sooner?!"

Amazon Review Quotes

I have dense, naturally curly hair and have tried everything in the whole wide world...this conditioner is FANTASTIC! ... My hair keeps the curl, but remains soft and touchable.

Love how this product can be used on wet or dry hair, as it is very helpful for taming flyaways. Used sparingly, it doesn't leave an oily residue on my hair and I don't need to wash my hands afterwards. Instead, it acts like a lotion for my hands.

LOVE this! I have medium long, super thick, super dry hair (from years of box dye damage) and this is the first product to make my hair feel healthy again!

Amazon Review Quote

... works well to make my hair feel a bit plumper and fuller, and it works to keep my hair softer and shinier than any other natural conditioner I've used.

  • EWG - 2
  • Hair Types: ALL
  • Get Shine
  • 11.5 oz

Amazon Review Quote

Love this stuff!! Can use as a rinse out or leave in. It provides just enough slip so I am able to comb through my hair, but not so much it leaves my hair greasy. The shine of my hair after this product is what I love the most though. No other conditioner has ever done that.

  • EWG - 2
  • Hair Types: Dry, Curly, Textured Hair
  • Moisture RIch
  • 11.5 oz

Amazon Review Quote

I love this product! I originally purchased a very expensive "all natural" conditioner that wasn't doing my hair any good. After I washing and brushing my hair it had so much bounce in it I had to double check the bottle to ensure I used the "moisture rich" rather than a volumizing conditioner. This is great! It smells tasty also!

  • EWG - 2
  • Hair Types: Fine, Limp
  • Add Lift, Body & Shine
  • 11.5 oz

Amazon Review Quote

This product works by reducing the amount of hair you lose and it does a GREAT job. It took about a month to start working but I swear it's reduced my hair loss ... by 70%.
