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.

    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.
