Fragrance free/unscented hair products

ThkchkThkchk Posts: 203Registered Users
If you have a sensitive scalp you may want to look into trying a shampoo and conditioner that is fragrance free or unscented.

Just like the terms organic and natural they may be unregulated in that it varies by manufacturer. Generally it should be that nothing has been added for the purpose of giving it "fragrance".

Some products do add essential oils which may give a "scent" and unfortunately some may be sensitive to oils. Also there may be other ingredients that you are trying to avoid such as parabens or cones that are found in the scent free products.

I have a sensitive scalp which is prone to break outs. I have being trying to use more "natural" or "organic" products and of course sometimes we fall in love with a smell. I'm not saying that those products are breaking my scalp out they are probably helping keep it in check. I came across some that are unscented and will try some. I'll list them in a separate post

    Thank you for this information! Which conditioner do you think is best? I need a conditioner with great slip and that moisturizes. I believe i'm allergic to fragrance so i cannot even have a conditioner with slip.

    Hi everyone, I just wanted to see if there was an update for this list that might include hair styling products? I do great with the Desert Essence fragrance free line but I haven't found anything that is organic and unscented (fragrance free) for styling my 3a curls. Thank you!

    Try Jessicurl. The products are 100% vegan and they have fragrance-free options. I love their products, my only problem is that in the winter, my hair goes flat and I am looking for a product that will help me keep my waves. I also have to have fragrance-free, so I found this thread. (I'm new here)
