thinksport’s Non-toxic Shampoo and Conditioner Perfect for the Whole Family

thinksport non-toxic shampoo and conditioner

I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it here on the blog, but I’m one of those gluten-intolerant people who suffers from dermatitis herpetiformis (DH), which causes an itchy, blistering rash in response to gluten intake. I’ve had an especially difficult time with my scalp and have spent years searching for a shampoo that doesn’t irritate my skin.

I know what you’re thinking – and yes, I’ve tried many, many homemade recipes and even going shampoo free, but I just haven’t found the right combination of clean, shiny and manageable.

Then Along Came thinksport

I’ve been challenging my friend Kevin, founder of thinksport, to put his scientific brain to the task and help solve my quandary.  By George, I think he’s done it!  He sent me his new concoctions about a month ago and I’ve been using them exclusively since then without a single flare up.

I love the way my hair looks and feels!  The light scent isn’t overpowering like artificial fragrances can be, but leaves a fresh, clean smell that reminds me of tropical mango with a touch of summer.

The thinksport team is serious about honesty in labeling, so it’s a relief to know that there are no mystery chemicals waiting to pounce on my sensitive scalp.

And for those of you who are wondering: yes, it’s made without gluten.

Guy Tested and Mother Approved

It even works for all of the guys in my house!  This is a BIG deal for us, because the minute I show up with “yet another gross smelling natural shampoo” it usually gets ejected from the shower after the first round.  But not this one!

When I asked the boys whether they liked it, they gave that familiar non-committal shrug which is code for, “I may like it, but I’m not telling you because you’ll take my regular shampoo away.”  So I just kept a stealthy eye on the bottle and saw that they were actually using it.  Then one day last week my 15 year old son, Keagan, came bouncing out of the shower and said,

Hey mom, feel how soft my hair is. That new thinksport stuff is really awesome!

And thus, history was made in the Voorhies household.  My guys FINALLY use non-toxic haircare!

  • Tiffany

    I think we have all been tricked at one time or another. Many of us grow up thinking our government actually monitors stuff like deceptive advertising. It just ain’t so…

  • HRM

    I’m sure I’ve been tricked but I can’t think of a specific incident right no (just started my coffee!). But I do read labels very closely now. Thanks!

  • Woof Woof Mama

    It totally bugs me that product labeling isn’t better regulated. I try to read them carefully but I’m sure I’ve been tricked or misled before!

  • Sarah

    I am excited to try this shampoo and conditioner!

  • Anne Lehnick

    I feel constantly duped by hair care products. I don’t always know the best things to keep my hair looking good that aren’t going to lead to the demise of my overall health.

  • Kara Telenga

    What a great testimony! Would love to try these new products!

  • josephine

    i was tricked a few times… never again

  • Alyson

    I’ve been wanting to try their sunscreen for a long time. Nice to hear they make other well-liked products. Seems like a great company!

  • Alyson

    I have felt misled for sure. It’s hard for any regular consumer to keep track of all the names for ingredients, especially when there is little regulation on how ingredients are listed. As far as claims, it’s hard to know whom to trust.

  • steff

    I can’t think of a product in particular but I’m sure I have!

  • kfs24

    Yes, I have been tricked. I have a peanut and tree nut allergy and it’s hard to find products that are nut-free.

  • Megan

    I was extremely annoyed when I found out that the pricey shampoo I’d been buying from Aveda – which touts itself as all green – actually contained parabens. My fault for not paying more attention to the specific bottle I was buying but still, ‘come on.

  • lori

    “Fragrance-free” is tricky. It might really mean additional chemicals, which are not listed in the ingredients, have been added to cover up any odors in the product.

  • Mishka2013

    Yes, and I get tired of being mislead, especially when a “trusted” manufacturer sells out their morals or gets bought out by a major corporation and changes the ingredients on me. ThinkBaby/ThinkSport has remained true though!

  • Krista

    When I first started researching and buying organic/natural products, I imagine I was tricked! I think I was also fooled into thinking certain brands were more natural/safer than others because of packaging too. I’m a lot smarter now – I hope!

  • Amanda Snoddy

    I really wish there were standards for labeling in the US. I now make sure to read the ingredients and stick with trust worthy brands.

  • Adina Johnson

    I’ve totally been tricked into spending lots of money on stuff that said it was “natural”. I’m a much more careful consumer now, This “thinksport” line looks great!

  • Natalie

    sounds like a great product!

  • Courtney

    Not that I know of but it is always in the back of my mind

  • Jaime G

    Yes I have been tricked but have learned to always read thru the ingredients no matter what the product states on it:)

  • Eve

    I’ve totally been tricked. I think that every organic shampoo is not actually organic. The word is becoming rather meaningless.

  • Ariana Burandt

    I’ve been looking for a natural shampoo and conditioner! This is perfect!

  • Holly Wert

    yep, i’ve learned to read labels more closely

  • Tiffany

    Yes! I hate that companies can label their products with pretty much anything–a little creative wording, and they’ve got people duped. A few years ago I bought some “green” dishwashing detergent and didn’t take the time to read the ingredients. The smell of bleach was overwhelming!

    • The Soft Landing Sisters

      Congrats Tiffany, you’re our winner and now have $100 to spend at! I can’t wait to hear what you buy during your shopping spree :-) ~Alicia

      P.S. Watch for an email with details on how to claim your prize.

  • Kate

    I feel like I’ve been duped by the Method brand hand soaps. They still use two chemicals regarded as toxins: Methychloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone. and they have fragrance listed in the ingredients. Not the “natural” product I thought I was buying.

    However, I’m excited for the chance to try thinksports brand products!

  • bec_jd

    Yeah I’ve been tricked, for sure. Too many times. But I like Thinksport sunscreen so I’m sure I’d like this shampoo and conditioner.

  • Jillian

    I love the size of these bottles! Non-toxic shampoo and conditioner in a big bottle… Sign me up:)

  • mindfulmomma

    Definitely! I hate that the term natural isn’t regulated at all. It’s so deceiving!

  • Stephanie Moram

    Pretty much up until I was about 3 months pregnant while living in Kansas. I thought if they were selling it must be safe. Once I found out the opposite, I was on a mission to bring a healthy baby into the world without the nasty chemicals. I began my own research and found safe, non-toxic products!

  • Emily

    I know I have been disappointed to find out a product I like isn’t all that I thought it was, or formulas have changed :( thesoftlanding keeps me updated! Thank you

  • Lori Popkewitz Alper

    Such a confusing term that’s not regulated. I’ve been duped many times!

  • Jana

    Excited to try Thinksport!

  • KD {Mom Of 3 Dolls}

    Yes! Products that are labeled all- natural, definitely have to check on the back for the actual ingredients.

  • Debnmike Moretti

    Yes, I am sure we all have. Now I check sites to make sure they are safe.

  • Brie L

    I would love to try this brand!!!!

  • Amy M

    When searching for the right wash/shampoo for my babies/kids, I’ve purchased products that appeared to be safe, only to learn later that there better options out there!

  • Michelle

    Not really – I usually check the EWG database to make sure they are true!

  • Beth Mettler

    I’m sure I have and don’t even know it. Just bought ThinkBaby shampoo for my little ones. Love it!

  • Beth

    Yes! I cannot trust something that says” All natural” without asking lots of questions. :(

  • Amie

    yes! perfect example is Organix shampoo and conditioner line!

  • Karen Lee

    “Natural” doesn’t mean it’s healthy or free of toxins. It’s always best to check each ingredients. It takes twice as long to shop but your family’s health is worth the time.

  • Erin N

    Yes! Until a couple of years ago, I didn’t know to look at ingredients lists on things. I assumed “natural” meant natural, silly me! Now I am so thankful for brands like this which do the best for our families.

  • Lisa

    I used to use Burt’s Bees shampoo but found a few of the questions to be questionable. Before I knew as much I used several other “natural” brands that were far from it.

  • robbie

    I am sure I have been tricked, very easy to do!

  • Melissa Kling

    I have been tricked! I feel like the standards of labeling and what is a “lie” or misrepresentation is easily done by many companies! PS, I am in love with Thinksport shampoo and conditioner! My whole family is!

  • Sabrina Bri Radke

    YES! Unfortunately there is a specific brand that claims to be natural that isn’t, I was happy to tell a friend not to use them on her kids!
