Holland and Barrett is the UK’s leading health food store that sells everything from supplements, vitamins, minerals and natural beauty products.  I try my hardest to live a healthy lifestyle, so I like to visit Holland and Barrett periodically for some inspiration! In my latest trip I wanted to restock on the aloe vera toothpaste and roll on deodorant when I spotted Dr. Bronner's, which I have always ordered through Amazon or online retailers. They even had a variety of scents! As I am sure you can tell my attention went straight to that section and I was happy to find some great products for naturally curly hair. If you are like me and want to make the transition to a more natural and organic hair care regimen, here is a list of things you can pick up on your next visit.

Tip: If you can't find some of these brands in your local store, try visiting some of the larger stores in centres or in central London as they stock a bigger variety.

Dr. Bronner's

Castile soap is a vegetable oil based soap, meaning it has no detergents. This soap is 100% natural including ingredients like olive oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, and extracts depending on which scent you choose. I personally enjoy using the tea tree soap, as it helps to soothe my itchy scalp. One of the many uses of this soap is to wash your hair! Make sure that you follow up with a conditioner to rinse out after so your hair becomes smoother and doesn’t tangle.

Avalon Organics

Avalon Organics is amazing! The rosemary conditioner leaves your hair feeling soft and shiny after rinsing out. I also love to co-wash with this product, as it allows me to detangle my curls easily. Just like Dr. Bronner's, they also have a variety of scents. I would recommend the Peppermint Revitalizing Conditioner and Ylang Ylang Shine Conditioner.


A natural brand you may have not tried but should! These hair products are highly nourishing for the hair with there healing ingredients. If like me you are ingredient conscious, this brand is for you. The 24-hour Lavender Leave-in Conditioner looks like one to try if you suffer from dryness. Along with hair products there are a few other items you can find that will benefit your hair in many ways! 

Aloe vera gel

This 99% natural aloe vera gel is amazing to use as a styler for curly hair. Aloe vera actually has many uses for hair including pre-poo, moisturizing shampoo, conditioner, and hair growth! Aloe vera can unclog your hair follicles to promote growth.

Manuka honey

This honey is another multiuse product you can find in store. It is great to add into your deep conditioning treatments to prevent split ends, buildup, and a dry scalp! Manuka honey is different than regular honey due to its antibacterial properties. It is used as an alternative medicine to treat infections, boils, and diabetic ulcers!

Coconut oil

No need to explain the benefits of this gem! Coconut oil is used for cooking, skin care, and hair. Holland and Barrett have a large selection of 100% natural coconut oils to choose from.
