Grooming always involves flushing a whole load down the drain at the end of the day—and sometimes the cleaning products are actually worse biological offenders than the dirt they wash away. It’s possible to clean up without wrecking the environment though, and it need not break the bank (because you were thinking that of course).

1) Gugo & Lawat Anti-Hairfall Shampoo

Price: P199

Made from local ingredients like lawat and gugo, this all-natural shampoo is formulated to keep scalp healthy. Lawat has antibacterial properties, and gugo is a medicinal plant that also stimulates hair growth. Of course, it leaves the nasty stuff out too. It’s sulfates-free, which means this shampoo won’t break down the proteins and cell membranes in your hair.
