Psst! Adding these natural ingredients to shampoo can help boost hair growth

Shampoo is one hair care product that everybody uses. You may forget to oil your hair for a few weeks, but you can’t go without shampooing your hair. Amirite? Therefore, it is vital that your shampoo contains all the good ingredients that will not only cleanse your hair and scalp but also nourish and give you healthy tresses. Wanna know a little secret? Adding certain natural ingredients to your regular shampoo can accelerate hair growth and improve its health. Yes, really!

Want to know what these natural ingredients are? Take a peek below.


Green tea


Rich in antioxidants, green tea is not only beneficial for your health and skin but it also helps prevent hair fall and promotes hair growth. It has the ability to increase the supply of oxygen and other essential nutrients to the scalp. The Sunsilk Green Tea and White Lily Freshness Shampoo is formulated with the goodness of green tea, which purifies your hair and leaves it fresh.




Applying lavender oil makes your hair thicker and accelerates the growth cycle too. It also inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi which are usually responsible for hampering natural hair growth. You can add a few drops of lavender essential oil to your shampoo or save yourself the hassle of mixing ingredients and simply get your hands on the Love Beauty & Planet Smooth and Serene Shampoo with Argan Oil and Lavender Aroma, which is formulated with lavender to smoothen your frizzy tresses and make them more manageable.




Honey is one of the most beneficial ingredients found in nature; it has great healing and repairing properties. It also acts as a moisturiser to retain moisture into the hair; thus, strengthening hair and promoting growth. You can add a teaspoon of honey to your regular shampoo or get yourself the Dove Healthy Ritual For Strengthening Hair Shampoo, which contains the goodness of honey and oat milk.


Aloe vera


The benefits of aloe vera are known to the world; apart from giving you flawless skin, this ingredient has the ability to address pretty much every hair concern. Whether it's hair loss that’s giving you sleepless nights or embarrassing dandruff that won’t leave your scalp, it can all be corrected simply by adding aloe vera to your shampoo. Don’t know where to get fresh aloe vera from? Use the Sunsilk Coconut Water & Aloe Vera Shampoo instead!




Loaded with vitamin C, amla is used to address many hair and scalp problems. The phyto-nutrients, vitamins and minerals present in amla promote scalp circulation and stimulate the growth of healthy hair. Amla powder and juice can be added to your regular shampoo, hair mask or even oil. Alternatively, you can use the Indulekha Bringha Anti Hair Fall Shampoo, which contains amla and other natural ingredients that strengthen the hair.
