My Favorite Clean Hair Care Products

Jess Ann Kirby shares her favorite clean hair care products for silky and shiny hair

I wrote this post about a year ago and since then have tried some additional products that I really love so wanted to update with a few new favorites.

My Favorite Clean Hair Care Products

I’ve tested a lot of clean hair care brands and products over the last few years, and have finally landed on some favorites. Before we get into the products I love, here’s a few notes about my general hair care routine. I typically wash my hair about 3 times a week. I alternate products as I think it helps prevent build-up. I almost never blow dry my hair, I wash at night and let it air dry (my texture is fine, mostly straight and thick). I don’t take any hair specific supplements but I do take probiotics and plant-based collagen peptides which I think improve hair health. I recently ordered an organic shampoo bar as I’d love to be able to eliminate some packaging waste so I’ll be sure to share my experience with that. Would love to know if there’s any other clean hair care brands you’ve tried and liked. Let me know in the comments!


Innersense Hydrating Cream Hairbath Shampoo (use code JESSANNKIRBY15 for 15% off) – I’m a big fan of Innersense and their hydrating shampoo does not disappoint. It has gentle, non-toxic, plant-based ingredients, and cleans well without drying hair. It’s great for a sensitive/itchy scalp and has a nice lather in the shower (make sure to use lukewarm water when washing hair).

The Seaweed Bath Co. Detox Clarifying Shampoo – This is a great affordable non-toxic beauty brand. I use this shampoo once a week to get rid of product build up. It’s really gentle on the scalp and makes your hair feel super clean.


Innersense Color Radiance Conditioner (use code JESSANNKIRBY15 for 15% off) – Particularly great for color treated hair it helps prevent frizz and won’t fade your salon color. Apply this from mid-length to ends and leave on for a few minutes.

Styling Products

Innersense I Create Waves Spray (use code JESSANNKIRBY15 for 15% off) – I’ve tested a lot of salt sprays and I like this one because it gives nice texture without getting sticky or making hair feel dry.

Rahua Hydration Detangler (use JESSANNKIRBY15 for 15% off) – This is a really good heat protectant that I spray on damp hair and then let it air dry. It also has morete oil, a natural UV protectants to help your salon color last longer.

Captain Blankenship Dry Shampoo – I’ve tried so many different clean dry shampoos and this one is definitely my favorite. It doesn’t leave behind any residue and gives my hair volume and texture.


Olaplex – This is a really good at home treatment strengthening treatment, especially for color treated hair. It makes hair stronger and shinier, I use it once a month.


Wet Brush – Makes brushing your hair enjoyable. It feels great on your scalp and detangles without pulling or breaking your strands.

Kristin Ess Pivoting Wand – I use this for easy beach waves and it’s hard to beat for a $60 curling wand.

t3 Wand – This is a great combo curling wand set. I tend to use this more often when my hair is longer because I alternate with different attachments.
