Organic conditioner is a product meant to soothe and repair human hair through natural means. Hair conditioner is used to improve the texture of hair, though different conditioners have varying compositions and purposes. In improving the feel of the hair, a conditioner also improves the hair’s aesthetics. Though most hair conditioner is made with a variety of synthetic ingredients, organic conditioner is made with all-natural ingredients. It can be purchased or made at home.

Throughout history, both men and women have used natural hair conditioning treatments to soften their locks. In the 20th century, synthetic conditioners came into play. The product was originally utilized primarily by men in order to soften their facial hair, which was commonly worn longer until the 20th century. Since then, women have used conditioner and similar creme rinses to tame their frizz and detangle their locks.

Most conditioners are made with man-made materials rather than natural materials. In such synthetic conditioners, materials such as silicone and alcohols are commonly used. Alcohols, in particular, are known to dry out the hair in the process of cleansing it. Organic conditioner, on the other hand, is often made with extremely nourishing materials. Both synthetic and organic conditioner have their advantages and disadvantages, however.

When purchasing organic conditioner at the store, consumers should be sure to check the label to avoid any potential allergens. Mint, honey, rosemary, and various other herbs and essential oils are often used in the process of creating organic conditioner and its perfumes. Once it has been determined that the conditioner is safe to use, consumers should compare potential organic hair care purchases against each other.

If the product is truly organic — that is, made with 100 percent organic materials — it will be labeled “100 percent organic.” If it’s 95 percent or more organic, the package label can use the word “organic.” Any organic conditioners made with at least 70 percent organic materials can read, “made with organic ingredients.” These percentage labels have been developed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Consumers who shop at organic specialty stores and farmers markets are likely to have a handful of organic ingredients in their own kitchens. Many of these can be mixed into a do-it-yourself organic conditioner. Avocado, honey, coconut oil, eggs, and mayonnaise are common ingredients in at-home organic conditioner concoctions. These treatments can be applied and immediately rinsed off, although some are meant to be left to soak for several minutes before rinsing. Consumers can look online or ask a hair specialist about the amount needed for each ingredient.
