Yucca has been used by Native Americans to help hair grow and keep it healthy and beautiful. It is believed that some of the hair growth benefits of Yucca can be attributed to its anti-inflammatory benefits and its ability to keep the scalp healthy and free from fungal and bacterial infection.

I recommend you read Understanding Different Kinds of Soaps if you aren’t aware of the difference between a natural lye soap and shampoo and synthetic (syndet) soaps and shampoos. Knowing this makes it easier to figure out the best natural solution for your hair.
Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
Made from all vegetable, renewable resources, and it is biodegradable. Baby soap uses this as its primary detergent.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate
Biodegradable. Made from plants. Great cleansing, very gentle, washes off easily.
This biodegradable detergent, made from coconuts, works great as a shampoo. It is mild, sudsy and works great with hard water. Adding it actually improves the first two detergents.
This ingredient is often referred to as BTMS and I imagine you can see why. Despite its scary name, but has a very safe and beneficial personality. Not only does it help combine the other ingredients, it is one heck of a great conditioner for hair (and skin). It is made from rapeseed but I wouldn’t call it natural. I would call it awesome because it is also the mildest detanglers out there. Some say it is a sulfate, some say it isn’t, some say it is technically a sulfate but has been rendered “safe”. It is considered biodegradable.
This easily biodegradable ingredient is a moisturizing alcohol and adds hardness to the bar as well.
Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate
I love this stuff and wish I could afford to put even more in this formula but OMG is it expensive. It is a wonderful hair cleanser in top-of-the-line- shampoos. It is biodegradable, made from vegetable sources and, interestingly, smells lovely.
