Recommended Shampoos For A Testosterone Booster

Reading the title of this article, I’m sure you may be wondering how Shampoo can be a testosterone booster. As you will see through this article, it’s going to be more a case that the shampoos I review don’t contain chemicals that can lower testosterone. Sadly most shampoo brands/ products contain chemicals that lower testosterone. So if/ when you swap from your regular brand to one of the brands I recommend, you will effectively see a testosterone booster, as your exposure to these chemicals will be reduced.

The Chemicals That Lower Tbottle of poisonestosterone In Shampoos

As I’ve mentioned most shampoo brands contain chemicals that lower T, if you want to find out more about this, check out this Chemicals That Lower Testosterone In Shampoo Article

To give you a brief overview, see the main culprits found in most shampoos that lower T:

  • Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate (SLS/SLES) Sulfates
  • Parabens
  • Phthalates
  • Microbeads
  • Pesticides

All the above are found in most shampoos, they negatively impact testosterone production but they can also negatively impact your wider health. Again you can find out more in this Chemicals That Lower Testosterone In Shampoo Article

How Low Testosterone Effects You

I assume if you’re reading this article, you already have some understanding of how low testosterone effects your body. In case, you aren’t though or just to serve as a high level reminder, suffering from low testosterone negatively impacts your health in the following ways & more.

  • Increased body fat retention
  • Reduced/ loss of muscle mass
  • Increased likelihood of type 2 diabetes
  • Decreased motivation
  • Increased likelihood of depression
  • Lack of/ lowered sex drive

I’ve put together a few different articles, looking in some depth how testosterone and health are linked. Find out more about the impact of low and healthy testosterone on the body and your wilder health, in these Testosterone And Health Articles.

So now we’ve covered why it is important to maintain at least normal testosterone levels and how your shampoo brand leads to lowered T. Let’s take a look at my recommended shampoo brands for a testosterone booster, due to not containing these chemicals that lower testosterone.

Man Cave Natural Grooming Gear

Man Cave are a natural skin care brand for men, their products are free from sulfates/ SLS, parabens, phthalates, Man Cave Shampoomicrobeads, pesticides, synthetic fragrance, and petrochemicals. As you’ll notice that is free of the chemicals listed above that lower testosterone in shampoos. Their products are vegan friendly, never tested on animals and their products while still being plastic are 100% recyclable.

Product Use, Effectiveness & Scents

The Man Cave Caffeine Shampoo is something that I’ve been using for a couple of years now. I’ve always found it is very effective and lasts a decent amount of time. One thing to note is, due to not containing the chemical SLS, the shampoo doesn’t really turn in to a “foam” so don’t let that bother you. I’ve always found my hair feels very clean after use and comes out very soft, in great condition and smelling great.


Average Price: £5.50

It is a bit ore expensive than your average shampoo product; but compared with other caffeine shampoos it is averaged price and compared with most organic/ natural shampoos, it is at the lower end of the price scale. If you purchase somewhere like Amazon you can take advantage of free and potentially same day delivery.

Overall Rating & Where To Purchase: 4.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 / 5)

This is the shampoo that I use most often. I highly recommend it as it does’t contain the toxic chemicals that can lead to lowered testosterone production. I feel like it has improved the condition of my hair and leaves it smelling great. The reason I haven’t given it full marks is, they currently only the have the shampoo option which is caffeine, whereas other brands have a wider range of shampoo options. Their packaging is still standard (fully recyclable) plastic and the scents are aimed purely at men.

I recommend purchasing on Amazon, the price on Amazon is exactly the same as on their direct website and as I mentioned earlier the advantage of buying on Amazon is the potential for free and same day delivery. Mancave have a wide range of grooming and personal care items, all of which are available for purchase on Amazon.

Hab Shifa

Hab Shifa are an Australian brand and have produced multiple products based on the black seed Nigella Sativa. This Hab shifa Shampooincludes a number of hygiene products such as shampoos, body washes and moisturisers. Their products are formulated using natural and organic ingredients and are free of SLS/ sulfates, parabens and petrochemicals.

Product Use, Effectiveness & Scents

I’ve used this shampoo a few different times and it has always left my hair feeling clean, in very good condition and smelling great. I know a few other people with completely different hair to mine (other people originally recommended it to me), who have also said the exact same thing. It being very effective for different hair types is one of their major selling points, as far I can tell they meet that claim. As it doesn’t contain SLS (one of the toxic chemicals mentioned above) the product doesn’t foam so you don’t need to use massive amounts. As well as being free from SLS, their products are also free from parabens and petrochemicals.


Average Price: £11.95

Their products are at the average to the higher end of the price scale. Again on Amazon, you can take advantage of free and same day delivery, which brings the price down.

Overall Rating & Where To Purchase: 4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)

It leaves your hair in very good condition, in fact probably the best out of any shampoo that I’ve used and as I’ve mentioned seems to work well with multiple hair types. It is free from SLS/ sulfates, parabens and petrochemicals, which means it will give you a testosterone booster if using in place of your average shampoo. Where I think it falls down is it isn’t specified if the products are free from all the chemicals that lower Testosterone, so the chance is it isn’t going to be as free of toxic chemicals and ones that lower T as the mancave product and the fact that it is pretty expensive in comparison.

I recommend purchasing on Amazon, partially because with them being Australian you can’t purchase on their site if you are based outside of Australia; and as mentioned previously on Amazon you can take advantage of free and same day delivery.

They also have a wider range of hygiene products, which you can check out here!

Final Thoughts & Future Articles

  1. Very informative and great article, I had no idea that chemicals in shampoo can reduce my testosterone levels. I’m weight training and trying to increase my muscle mass, so high testosterone level is very important to me and after reading your article I will definitely start checking shampoo ingredients before buying. I also use few products from Man Cave, beard wash and moisturiser and I think that Man Cave products are great, however, I have never tried their shampoo and after reading your post I really want to give it a try. Thanks for this helpful post.

    1. Hi Marius,

      I’m glad you found the article useful. Yeah sadly the chemicals in a number of items we use daily (mostly hygiene ones) contain chemicals that lower testosterone. Like you say if increased muscle mass is one of your major aims, you don’t want to be introducing anything that can lower your T levels.

      Good to hear you use their beard wash and a few other products, as these also contain the chemicals that lower testosterone, they also provide shower gels which are ideal for a testosterone booster for the same reasons, you can see more about this and the other shower gels I recommend here: Recommended Shower Gels For A Testosterone Booster

    1. Hi Bilal,

      I’m glad you found it useful; and yes you’re correct the chemicals that lower testosterone also cause other issues including lowered immunity, hence why it is best to opt for products that don’t contain these chemicals, like the ones I’ve listed.

  2. Thank for your article. It is full of instructif informations. I didn’t know that shampo we use al day are maked by chimiques product and are bad for the good fonctionnality of testosterone. Now I know and I thank you. I will take my disposition in the future. Thanks also for the tips about the brand you promote. We will try it. 

    1. Hey, 

      I’m glad you found this article useful!

      Yes most shampoo brands do sadly contain chemicals that lower testosterone and cause multiple other health issues. The ones I’ve recommended in these articles are free of these chemicals and great shampoos as well! If you want to know more about how most shampoos lower T you can see more about this here: Recommended Shampoos For A Testosterone Booster

  3. Hello, Nate. Thank you for another great article. I am really curious about the product not “foaming” up. This seems like it would make you want to use more, not less of the product. If it’s not roaming up it just doesn’t seem like it’s working.
    Anyway, you gotta keep an eye on that testosterone the older you get. Reminds me of a joke my uncle always tells me but it’s not appropriate in this

    1. Hi Joseph,

      I’m glad you found it useful, yeah I know what you mean with regards to the foaming. I think where I’m now used to using products that don’t foam I know I need far less as supposed to pouring enough in my hand to make sure it foams. Yes testosterone levels as a whole are lowering but it does become an even bigger issue as men age (normally 30+), yep it is important to keep your T levels up. You can see some of the benefits in this Testosterone & Health Article

      I’ve heard a few of the jokes so I can guess the sort of lines it is along lol

  4. I had no idea that chemicals in shampoo can reduce my testosterone levels. Since I regularly play sports I will definitely need to check my shampoo ingredients. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hey,

      Yes sadly they do and please do check your shampoo, especially if you are in to your sports. The higher your testosterone, the better your performance is likely to be. I suggest trying out one of the shampoos I recommend as or another organic brand as they will also be good for a testosterone booster.
