Our Must-Have Clean Beauty Swaps For Hair

In the words of the ultimate babe, Dolly Parton, “If anyone ever tells you your hair is too big, get rid of ’em. You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life.” We’re pretty sure Dolly relies on aerosol and a few gimmicks to maintain her locks, but over here at GG, we’re swapping our beauty products for cleaner alternatives. But that doesn’t mean your hair has to fall flat! Check out these clean beauty swaps we’re loving for our haircare stash:

Swap your shampoo for this:

Rahua Hydration Shampoo: Rahua is one of our favorite clean beauty brands right now, and every shampoo it makes is killer. You can’t go wrong with any of the formulas, and they’re safe for color-treated hair.

Swap your conditioner for this:

Briogeo Rosarco™ Repair Conditioner: This stuff (and the line of deep-conditioning masks) is magic. Your hair will feel soft, full and best of all, free from icky chemicals.

Swap your dry shampoo for this:

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk: Let’s be honest, we use our dry shampoo more than our real shampoo. This one always leaves us feeling refreshed and grease-free. Plus, it’s super affordable, and comes in a variety of options included tinted and aerosol-free.

Swap your heat-styling balms for this:


Alterna CAVIAR Anti-Aging Smoothing Anti-Frizz Blowout Butter: Not only will this balm protect your hair from heat styling, but it will leave your hair feeling softer. Plus, it helps improve texture.

Swap your repair treatments for this:

Prim Botanicals The Hair Oil: This can be used as a “pre-treatment” for 30 minutes before showering, or as a hot oil treatment to totally transform your locks.

Swap your volumizing products for this:

Alterna Bamboo Volume Weightless Whipped Mousse: Finding a good styling mousse that doesn’t leave you feeling crunchy is hard enough, but finding one full of clean ingredients is almost impossible. Luckily, we found this one and it’s magic.

Swap your wave spray for this:

Captain Blankenship Mermaid Sea Salt Hair Spray: It shouldn’t take much to give you those effortlessly natural beach waves, which is why we love how stripped down (yet effective) this spray is.
