I was asked this week by a client if I could recommend a vegan shampoo and conditioner. I am no expert on Vegan hair products and historically I have been disappointed by the results of such ranges especially for colour treated and dry hair.
My go-to recommendation for a vegan range is Pureology, who have recently been acquired by L’Oreal Paris. For some, L’Oreal’s beauty ethics are questionable, but in my opinion, they produce some of the best hair care products on the market.
Body Shop founder Anita Roddick famously said that although under her command The Body Shop did not test on animals, she couldn’t guarantee that some of the ingredients that her products contained, had not, at some point, been tested on animals before they found their way onto the market.
Ethical/Vegan products is a grey area, so do your research well if you are committed to using a product that is 100% in line with your values.
In the meantime, I came across this vegan range by Faith in Nature. It is their ‘lux’ range and bears no resemblance to their standard range, which I have found leaves hair dry and tangled. This duo, left hair feeling thoroughly cleansed, soft and manageable. I’d highly recommend it.
If you have any ethical product recommendations, please share below and likewise, feel free to ask any questions.
