There are plenty of cruelty-free and vegan-friendly shampoo available at your local drugstore and to help you navigate through the shampoo aisle, I’ve created this list of vegan shampoo brands that don’t test on animals or contain any animal-derived ingredients.

All of the brands I mention are cruelty-free, meaning they don’t test on animals. Some of the brands mentioned below may not be an entirely 100% vegan brand however to be included on this list, I made sure the brands clearly label which of their products are vegan or I have provided a corresponding vegan product list to help you figure out which of their products are vegan.

If you want to know which drugstore shampoos to avoid from brands that do test on animals, be sure to check the end of this post for a list of brands to avoid.

    Ive been loving Live Clean shampoo’s for some time now and recently nocticed our dollar store had them so I picked up another 2 bottles for $2.50 ( WHAT !! ) I love how their shampoo makes my hair and is safe for my bleached processed hair as well. One that I also have in my shower is Avalon Organics, I have their dandruff shampoo and the rosemary volumizing and I love them both they work so well and I have fine hair and most shampoos weigh my hair down or make me really greasy.

      YES, I’ve tried that Avalon Organics Rosemary shampoo as well and it’s one that I always reach for when I’m at the drugstore! I’m glad to hear it works for your hair type as well!! =)
