When I was switching all my products to cruelty-free, I was disappointed to learn that some of my favorite hair product brands like Organix, John Frieda, and Tresemme test on animals!
But I quickly discovered a new range of cruelty-free hair product brands and surprisingly, most of them had a full line of vegan haircare products! Finding cruelty-free and vegan shampoo/conditioner was rather easy but when it came to looking for vegan hairspray, mousse, gel, hair masks, and other hair treatments, required more effort. If you’re looking for some cruelty-free hair products of your own, you can start by looking at some of the shampoos and conditioners over at Reviewing This! You can find products like Malin and Goetz Peppermint over there that you may find yourself interested in.
To save you hours of research, here’s a list of 10 cruelty-free and vegan hair product brands! If you want more options for vegan shampoo/conditioners, check the list at the very bottom of this post!
Cruelty-Free & Vegan-Friendly Hair Product Brands
The following cruelty-free brands offer several vegan hair products including shampoo, conditioner, hair styling and treatment products. Please note some of the brands mentioned below are not entirely 100% Vegan, but I made sure to only include brands that have at least several vegan hair products.
Andalou Naturals (100% Vegetarian)
Almost all of Andalou Naturals’ shampoo, conditioners, hair spray, and balms are vegan with the exception of their Argan & Sweet Orange shampoo & conditioner which contains Manuka honey.
I would say about 75% of Aubrey Organics’ hair products are Vegan. Some of their non-vegan products may contain lactalbumin (a milk protein), glycoprotein (derived from oyster shells), lanolin, or egg protein. Aubrey Organics offer several Vegan shampoo, conditioners, hair gel, mousse, hairsprays, and treatments.. they also offer trial/travel size too!
DermOrganic (100% Vegan)
DermOrganic vegan hair products are frequently used at professional salons. Even better, all DermOrganic shampoos, conditioners, treatments, hairspray, styling gel, and everything else are 100% Vegan!
Desert Essence (100% Vegetarian)
Desert Essence has countless shampoo and conditioners that’ll help moisturize, strengthen, clean, or protect your locks! They now also have some vegan-friendly hair styling products. Desert Essence uses small amounts of honey and beeswax in some of their products so be sure to read the list of ingredients before buying.
Some of EVOLVh salon quality hair products are vegan-friendly! You’ll also be happy to hear that all of EVOLVh products are made using 90% or higher organic ingredients. You can find just about anything to help keep your tresses healthy and happy!
Giovanni (100% Vegetarian)
Almost all of Giovanni hair products are vegan with the exception of their Magnetic product line which contains lactoferrin. Giovanni has one of the largest selection of salon quality vegan hair products! I’ve tried half a dozen of their products to date and I’ve loved each one.
LUSH (100% Vegetarian)
Most of LUSH shampoo, conditioners, and hair treatments are Vegan with a few exceptions that contain honey, beeswax, and free range eggs. I especially love the idea of their Shampoo bars!
Pacifica (100% Vegan)
Pacifica recently came out with a range of vegan hair products which included shampoos, conditioners, hair styling and treatment products. They’re currently only exclusively available at Ulta, and if you’re in Canada… you can also find them at Well.ca!
Paul Mitchell is a cruelty-free professional salon hair product brand and I was pleasantly surprised to learn most of Paul Mitchell hair products are vegan! You can easily spot which ones are vegan on their website when viewing each specific product page.
Yarok (100% Vegan)
Yarok hair products are all vegan and includes a variety of shampoo, conditioners, treatments, and styling products. Yarok also primarily uses certified organic ingredients so they’re definitely a fab option for consumers wanting a vegan and greener selection!
Cruelty-Free & Vegan-friendly Shampoo & Conditioner
Not all of us need hair styling and treatment products so I’ve included cruelty-free brands below that have vegan-friendly shampoo and conditioners!
Beauty Without Cruelty (100% Vegan)
Hugo Naturals (100% Vegan)
Kavella (100% Vegan)
Kiss My Face
Sudsatorium (100% Vegan)
Sukin (100% Vegan)
