natural shampoo for thinning hair

I cannot find a natural brand of shampoo for thinning fine limp hair. It seems that everything leaves it oily and the drug store brands seem to dry it out. Can anyone recommend a natural shampoo for those of us not ready to go bald? Thanks

I just went to Whole Foods and there were a bazillion lines of natural shampoos for different uses. I would try to look for something that has lavendar or rosemary oils in it. These two essential oils stimulate hair growth.

I was having a lot of thinning hair for hormonal reasons. I'm trying to cut my red meats down, and use less chemicals. I also do the scalp massage method recommended with the 'no-shampoo' method (baking soda and apple cider instead of shampoo -- check out the "No shampoo mamas" thread). I've been having more luck and new hair growth.

The lack of minerals, heavy periods leading to anemia, eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, and female pattern baldness all account for thinning hair and bald spots. Eat plenty of leafy green and cruciferous veggies (spinach, broccoli, kale, collards, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, etc), vitamin C, B complex vitamins, vitamin E, zinc, legumes, lean proteins, and you can even take Biotin supplements. There are even ready-made supplements that are made for "hair" which are mixed perfectly for this purpose (found in any drug store).

If want an extra boost, try getting some rosemary essential oil or coconut hair oil, and rub that on your scalp. The scalp massage stimulates blood flow to your scalp, which helps grow hair.
