Ursa Major is a special brand. They formulate natural products for skin, hair, and body that actually work. Every product of theirs that I’ve tried has impressed me beyond belief, like their Hoppin’ Fresh Deodorant, Vitamin C Skin Serum, and Skin Recovery Cream.
And yet again, Ursa Major hits the mark with their new Go Easy Daily Shampoo ($26) and Go Easy Daily Conditioner ($28). These unisex products are effective enough to rival even the priciest salon hair products.
Why You’ll Love the Ursa Major Shampoo and Conditioner
- These shampoos and conditioners are made with safe, clean ingredients. No petrochemicals, parabens, or sulfates allowed!
- Because these products are made with plant-based ingredients that genuinely nourish and protect hair, hair begins to look better and better over time—not duller and duller, like some other products.
- They’re gentle on color-treated hair.
- The formulas are both lightweight and moisturizing—perfect for the warm summer months. If you’ve ever tried Ursa Major products before, you know that “lightweight” is their specialty, making it ideal for anyone not interested in rich or oil-heavy alternatives.
- Unlike other natural shampoos, this one gets a good lather.
- The shampoo and conditioner combo make hair soft and manageable.
- The shampoo gives a deep clean without stripping the hair.
- The conditioner is lightweight enough for my fine, straight hair BUT it also works to detangle my daughters’ thick 3B curls and makes an awesome leave-in conditioner for thick/curly/textured hair.
And most importantly….
- They leave hair soft and full of shine!
I remember the first time I tested a natural shampoo and conditioner (which shall remain nameless) for The Beauty Proof and I was so disappointed—my hair felt dry and crunchy, and the shine was zapped from my hair. I wondered if switching to clean haircare meant that I had to give up ever having shiny, soft hair again.
Thankfully, I quickly learned that amazing natural products were out there that could make my hair look even better than the expensive mainstream products sold at my local salon.
Ursa Major only ever uses natural fragrances in their products. The shampoo scent is woodsy, a blend of balsam, ginger, and fir. The conditioner is earthy with a slight citrus twist, with bergamot, orange, and sandalwood.

The conditioner includes one of my all-time favorite oils for hair—jojoba seed oil. It creates a softness and shine that can’t be beat!
There’s something else very important to note in these ingredient lists: All ingredients have been disclosed. When you find a product that stands by all its ingredients—like this one—that’s a good thing.
Finding the word fragrance on the ingredient lists of other products means the company behind the product has chosen to not disclose all ingredients. Thanks to the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act of 1966, fragrance is considered proprietary information and allowed to be hidden from consumers. So while you see that single word on the label, it may contain any number of secret ingredients.
But here’s the good news: more and more companies are choosing to disclose all ingredients in their cosmetics, thus empowering consumers like you to make a choice with your eyes wide open. Transparency matters. And that’s just another reason I love these products.
