List of Cruelty-Free and Vegan Shampoo at Target, Walmart, or Shoppers Drug Mart

You may be surprised to learn that there is actually plenty of cruelty-free and vegan shampoo and conditioners available at your local drugstore. The challenge is figuring out which brands are cruelty-free and vegan.

So to help you find and shop for vegan shampoo at Target, Walmart, or whichever drugstore you frequent, I’ve created this list of affordable cruelty-free and vegan haircare brands!

In this product guide, you’ll discover from a list of cruelty-free hair brands and vegan shampoo that I would recommend.

All of the brands mentioned in this product guide do not test on animals and are included in our Cruelty-Free Brand Directory.

Although some of the brands mentioned may not be entirely 100% vegan, I noted which ones offer a range of vegan hair products and how you can figure out which of their products are vegan or not.

As a bonus, most of these cruelty-free shampoo brands are also sulfate-free! I’ve indicated which ones are vegan and sulfate-free.

    I only use cruelty free shampoo. I started using sulfate free shampoo from Maple Holistics and it does a real good job for my hair.

      So great to hear you only use cruelty-free shampoo! =) Thanks for the recommendation, I gotta try them out! Do you know if they’re available in any drugstores?

    Not a bad list at all but a shame they’re all packaged in plastic! Not on your list but they should be as one of the best 100% vegan, cruelty free, silicon free shampoos and conditioners out there and made by an ethical UK small business (good to see a small producer doing what the big pharms don’t) and it works great on my tangled frizzy hair – I actually know what that word silky means after all these years of seeing it in other ads as it keeps my previously wild hair under control now at last! And forgot to mention that they are also non-plastic and no water!! so a double thumbs up from me. Check them out at The Solid Bar Company, thx Cat M
