2 Top Shampoos For A Testosterone Booster


So Certain Shampoos Can Deliver A Testosterone Booster?

They Certainly Can, Learn How, The Types of Brands You Need & The ones I Recommend By Reading on!

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.

As I’ve mentioned most shampoo brands contain chemicals that lower T, if you want to find out more about this.

Check out my article specifically looking at this below.

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. They can also negatively impact your wider health. Again you can find out more in the article below.

How Low Testosterone Impacts 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; 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 the articles below.

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 Shampoo

Man Cave are a natural skin care brand for men, their products are free from sulfates/ SLS, parabens, phthalates, microbeads, 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 – £6/ $6.50- $8.00 – With Free Worldwide Shipping

It is a bit more 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.

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

man cave gift set

This is the shampoo that I use most often. I highly recommend it as it doesn’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 Man Kind As The Prices Are Extremely Competitive & They Ship Worldwide For Free

Mancave have a wide range of grooming and personal care items, all of which are available for purchase on ManKind.

You can also purchase on Amazon if you prefer & can check it below.

Hab Shifa

Hab shifa Shampoo

Hab Shifa are an Australian brand and have produced multiple products based on the black seed Nigella Sativa. This includes 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 UK Price: £11.95

Average US Price: $24.95

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)

hab shifa shampoo

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 UK or Amazon US

Partially because with them being Australian you can’t purchase on their site if you are based outside of Australia. As mentioned previously on Amazon you can take advantage of free and same day delivery.

They Also Have A Wider Range Of UK Hygiene Products, Which You Can Check Out Here!

    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. Nate Stone says:

      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

  2. Bilal says:

    Really helpful ll this article on how to boost immune system and overall testosterone levels.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      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.

  3. mjds says:

    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. Nate Stone says:


      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

  4. Joseph says:

    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. Nate Stone says:

      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

  5. says:

    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. Nate Stone says:


      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.

  6. Audrey says:

    I have heard from the lips of others of these plastics, phthalates, parabens etc acting or actually have estrogen like molecular structures that mimic the hormone estrogen which men unknowingly ingest in their bodies. This does have repercussions in muscle mass, strength , weight, and even cancer. these estrogen clones are even found in many preservative compounds used in canned foods and other plastic wrapped foods etc. This is a great site to come to that we may be enlightened better on these masculine robbing substances. Thank you for this site.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Audrey,

      Yeah your spot on, those chemicals do mimic estrogen and a few of them actually disrupt your hormone balance and production, which can mean lowered testosterone production, even further increased estrogen production etc. These chemicals known as endocrine disruptors; also have links to some very serious illnesses, so it is a major issue, even beyond the reduced testosterone production. I’m glad you’ve found my site useful!

  7. Ben says:

    It looks like the second ingredient on the man cave product is one that you list as a T disrupter?

    “Aqua (Water), Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate, Glycerin…”

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Ben,

      It’s very similar sounding; but that ingredient isn’t actually a sulphate and is safe in terms of endocrine/ testosterone disruption.

      Thanks for raising though, as I’m sure others are probably thinking the same!

      1. Benjamin Lehman says:

        Ok, cool.
        Thanks for the reply!

        1. Nate Stone says:

          No Worries Benjamin, thanks for the query!

  8. Mojisola Kupolati (Debbie) says:

    Hi, Nate, you are very correct, I am not aware that there are potentially harmful chemicals in some brands of shampoos that can lower testosterone. Thank you for this information, and your suggestion for the safe brands with no sulphates, parabens and petrochemicals. I will particularly consider the MCC shampoo for my partner because it is organic and the price is reasonable.

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hi Mohisola, 

      You aren’t alone, sadly most people are under the impression that these products are “safe” to use & aren’t aware of the health risks these chemicals pose, with lowering testosterone production being among them.

      Yeah the man cave cosmetics products are pretty good, free of toxic chemicals & alcohols & ideal for a testosterone booster when you swap them for your standard shampoo & cosmetics brands.

  9. Dale says:

    Who would have thought keeping clean hair can lower your testosterone levels and to a point that it is noticeable.

    Im not going to lie, while both shampoos look great its the entire Man Cave collection that is catching my eye.

    When you go to their website it looks like they have some incredible products.  Will you be doing reviews on all the products.

    You have done an amazing job writing this that I cant wait to read more

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Dale, 

      Completely agree, you should be able to use a hair cleaning product without worrying it’s packed full of chemicals that lower testosterone & cause other health issues.

      Yeah the man cave shampoo is very good & their wider range of products is excellent as well! 

      I will be doing reviews of other products on their range, as they can all effectively deliver a testosterone booster by swapping to them. As they don’t contain any of the toxic chemicals that lower T & cause other health issues!

  10. phillwon4 says:

    You have opened my eyes about these products to boost your testosterone but I am still a bit sceptical that these products can raise it. Surely to help boost testosterone levels with these you need a balanced diet and exercise, you just can not rely on just a simple product. Very nice work. 

    1. Nate Stone says:

      Hey Phil, 

      Yeah so swapping to products like this will deliver a testosterone booster as you aren’t being as exposed to as many toxic chemicals that lower testosterone.

      You are right though, if you want to drastically increase your testosterone production, you need to look at & amend your diet & lifestyle. 

      If you want simple steps you can begin to follow to naturally optimize T, I suggest you check out the below article.
