for more information on product


This sulfate free Yucca Shampoo with Oat Protein is made from natural cleansing plants and the gentlest biodegradable synthetic detergents. It is great for hair that is dry, color treated, long or damaged. Great for anyone is experiencing itchy scalp and hair loss too since your commercial shampoos might be causing this reaction.

Traditional Navajo Hair Growth and Beauty Herb

Inspired by the beauty of the Navajo people and the healthiness of their hair, I turned to Yucca root as a natural and traditional hair cleanser to be the base of my hybrid shampoo.

Many people believe that Yucca stimulates hair growth.  Yucca has anti-inflammatory effects due to being a rich source of polyphenolics including resveratrol. (See this study on Yucca) The natural saponins in Yucca also suppress protozoal activity. Yucca also seems to act as an anti-oxidant and free-radical scavenger, this helps in maintaining a healthy hair growing environment.

Soapwort, Soap Nuts (Soap Berries, Sapindus mukorossi), Shikakai & Green Tea all supply natural saponins and are each traditional hair cleansers of people who culturally have perhaps the most beautiful hair on the planet. If you are seeking a completely natural product, can I suggest looking into my Yucca Shampoo Tea Powder.

As a natural and gentle hair cleanser, my Yucca Shampoo is the result of my desire to use a shampoo that is natural and good for my hair. I tried liquid soaps like Dr. Bronners and found that they were too harsh and drying because of their high Ph.

The ancient cleansing of Yucca, Soapwort and soap nuts blended with environmentally conscious biodegradable synthetic detergents prevent mineral buildup common with old-fashioned shampoos.

My Yucca Shampoo has Helped my Hair Grow

I make this shampoo for me. It has helped me grow my hair longer than ever. I suspect because it is so gentle and keeps my scalp healthy.

My approach to product creation and my life is trying to balance natural with practicality – each of us are able to achieve a certain level of naturalness – but I don’t think being natural and healthy should be so difficult that we feel defeated. We need to keep pushing for healthier options while keeping a balanced perspective on our choices. My Yucca shampoo formulation is a result of this attitude. I will continue to research both natural hair care options while using modern preservatives and synthetics when necessary and/or beneficial.

WHO IS YUCCA SHAMPOO FOR?Yucca Shampoo Used at Salon

For those who want a natural and gentle shampoo, for those who have tried the no-poo method or tried washing their hair with baking soda and disliked the result, those who want a shampoo that is more safe for the water supply than commercial brands and for those who are wanting a gentle shampoo.


There aren’t too many hybrid shampoos that use the natural saponins found in plants and combine them with gentle, biodegradable detergents. Many people need conditioning and  gentle but also want to use less chemicals.


Expect lower foam with this gentle shampoo. Bottle may require a little bit of shaking as no primary emulsifier is used. Wet hair thoroughly and work shampoo into scalp and through hair. Rinse. Repeat is probably not necessary except with hard water or oily hair. May not require conditioner depending on hair but I use either my Apple Cider Vinegar and Rosemary Conditioner, my Conditioning Bar or my Deep Conditioner. Every month or before I color my hair, I use a clarifying shampoo to rinse out any build up that can be caused by using natural gums to thicken the shampoo.

    Second time purchasing this shampoo, and I love it! It’s got a wonderful, almost minty scent to it, lathers nicely, and seems to keep my hair cleaner feeling for longer than other brands. Love that it’s made from all natural ingredients.

    A little definitely goes a long way! Lathers very well! My hair is still clean after the second day! After using all of Brenda’s products, my scalp tingles to let me know that the products are working.

    I love this shampoo !<3
    My hair feels silky & sheds a little less & looks noticeably different since I stopped using store bought shampoo/conditioner.
    My split ends look much less frizzy too!
    The smell is very subtle and has this like creamy freshness to it that’s very light 🙂

    This shampoo has gave me my wavy hair back. As a dude approaching my 30s, I’ve been experiencing some hair shed. This shampoo has helped reduce the shed and has given it a volume it has not had in a long while.

    I absolutely LOVE this shampoo! I had been on a long search for a natural shampoo that works and is gentle with my hair for 9 years now. I have tried the shampoos from the farmer’s markets, natural stores and various online shops, but this one is by far the best. The problem with other shampoos I found was that it wouldn’t completely clean my hair, or it would dry my hair out to the point that I had straw instead of hair. This shampoo get my hair clean and feels soft afterwards. It does smell like you’re walking into a health food store, but that doesn’t bother me at all. You only smell it while shampooing after it dries, the smell is gone. I love that all the ingredients she uses are recognizable and that she is so knowledgeable about hair ph and each ingredient she uses in her products. Also, a little goes a long way, and this bottle lasts me a few months. You can’t beat it!

    I tried the no poo method, but it left my hair damaged and looking greasy. This shampoo works very well, especially with an active lifestyle requiring more frequent shampoo days.

  13. Gary D Fields

    I have tried many other “natural” shampoos (I fear most are castile soap based, very drying) I bought off of Etsy, but in the future I will only buy this yucca based shampoo. I have asked the owner for bulk pricing! Best I’ve tried, EVER! Seller is incredible and loves to educate her customers on ingredients pertaining to natural hair/skin care. Thank you for the info about PH to use shampoo as a body wash but not vice versa, makes sense and probably why your shampoo is also AWESOME as a body wash.

    Love this shampoo! It has a lot of proteins in it – which helps with my hair – so I definitely need a good conditioner to follow up to help balance out the effects the protein has. It smells great, feels great, and suds up just enough so that I feel like my scalp is getting clean. I will be back for more 🙂

    This shampoo is amazing. My wife who is half Filipino has long silky hair. Using the normal store shampoo’s, she and our oldest daughter would have bad dry scalp and just not satisfied on how it made their hair feel. We can across this awesome product and it has made a huge difference in their hair. This shampoo is highly recommended. This will always be a purchase for us. Thanks for the Awesome product!!

    This product has become my ideal natural hair shampoo, it has creamy texture, incredible lather, minty fresh/rosemary sensation on the scalp as you wash away the impurities without stripping the natural oils from scalp or hair. I find this to be a balanced formula. My hair feels stronger and healthier.

    I quite liked this natural shampoo, it’s creamy but lathers quite well. The fragrance is refreshing and is not overwhelming.

    Love this shampoo! My hair is soft, full and shiny, not like most natural shampoos that leave your hair dry and dull. My new fave! May 13 2020

  27. Kelly D (store manager)

    very nice and smells good!

  28. Brenna F (store manager)

    I am in love with this shampoo!
    A little goes a long way, it lathers up to the most light, fragrant, foam and rinses so clean and soft.
    Love the bottle, the smell, and especially how my hair feels!
    Feels strong, soft, and only gets better the more I use it.
    My fiancé commented on how shiny my hair was this morning, which reminded me to leave this review!
    Will absolutely be buying more when the bottle runs out! Brenna F 06 May 2020

    I tried this for the first time yesterday, after having recieved it a couple weeks ago. To comment on the shipping, it was very fast!

    I’m IN LOVE with this product now. I hadn’t washed my hair in a few days, before using this product, so I had quite a good amount of oils built up. It smells so good and cleaned my hair very well! It looks and feels very clean, and a little goes a long way.

    I have straight hair down to my hips and this cleaned my hair, without making it feel dry. I actually believe my hair feels softer after using this. It also helped to relieve some itchiness from my scalp, that I battle with every winter. I actually told my husband that I’m done with mainstream shampoos and conditioners and will be switching to this product. 🖤 I highly recommend!(source Etsy)

  30. Nicole T. (store manager)

    I love this shampoo! It’s gentle on my fine hair and dry scalp. I’m four years postpartum and still dealing with the hair loss from right after giving birth. This shampoo has no toxic ingredients or lye and a pleasant smell… I highly recommend! Nicole T.
