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 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
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 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.
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 / 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 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.
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 / 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.
