Whether or not you’re a vegan, you’re probably looking for an all-natural way of caring for your hair. You might be wanting to shake up your haircare routine or incorporate more vegan products into your lifestyle. Over recent years, it’s become easier than ever to adopt a vegan lifestyle – whether it’s through cookbooks, beauty products, or even clothing. As the world changes, veganism is becoming even more popular amongst younger generations. Whatever you’re looking for, you can almost guarantee that there is a vegan alternative waiting for you.
While we could talk about vegan hair masks or leave-in treatments, the most important products of any haircare routine are your shampoo and conditioner. They’re the products that can make or break any routine. We’re giving you a rundown of the best vegan shampoos and conditioners, dividing our choices up by hair type. Whatever your hair goals are, we have a vegan shampoo and conditioner for you. Be ready to hit ‘add to cart’ and embrace your hair goals.
Before we jump into hair type specific products, it’s worth looking at the best vegan shampoo and conditioner for ‘normal’ hair. You’ll fall into this category if you don’t have any major hair concerns and want a shampoo and conditioner that you can rely on to get the job done.
The Garnier Ultimate Blends shampoo and conditioner proves that you don’t need to break the bank to enjoy a nourishing vegan haircare routine. For normal hair types, we recommend the aloe vera and coconut range from the Ultimate Blends collection. It’s primary purpose is to help detangle your hair and restore its glossy texture. You can pick up the shampoo and conditioner for cheaper than your daily Starbucks run.
If you’ve got dry hair, you want to regain your natural lustre by hydrating your hair and getting it back to its former glory. No one wants dry hair, least of all during the summer months. If you want to kickstart your hair’s recovery, the Holiroots shampoo and conditioner by Fable and Mane are our number on recommendations. They’re infused with coconut oil to nourish your scalp, and tiger herb to heal your hair follicles.
This vegan shampoo will moisturise your hair and act like a nourishing treatment. Its moisture-rich formula cares for your scalp and cleanses your hair to remove the impurities that are keeping it looking dull. The coordinating conditioner contains turmeric, which will help keep your hair looking and feeling healthy. Fable & Mane call this conditioner their ‘miracle hydrator’ that will give you the ‘strongest mane’.
Your hair goals might be to give your lifeless hair a little lift. Flat hair is not a look. While you don’t need to be backcombing your hair, you want to be injecting some natural volume into the roots to give you healthy and luscious hair.
For vegan hair products, the Monat Volumizing range is our number one choice. We recommend using the Revive Shampoo in partnership with the Revitalise Conditioner to take advantage of the brand’s trademarked capixyl ingredient that helps boost hair density.
While these products are a splurge purchase, they’re an investment in your hair. The shampoo will help strength your hair and make it more manageable, while cleansing impurities from your hair. It gives you a youthful look, while leaving your hair soft to the touch.
The Revitalise Conditioner is infused with REJUVENIQE and helps to boost the volume, moisture, and shine of your hair. It leaves your hair detangled, hydrated, and as soft as silk.
Does your hair need a good detox? Are you tired of how dull it’s starting to look? Meet the Maria Nila shampoo and conditioner that will change your haircare game. The brand’s Eco Therapy Revive range uses micellar technology to gently cleanse your hair of product residue, dirt, and impurities, without knocking your pH balance off.
The Eco Therapy Revive Shampoo has a colour guard complex that helps you maintain your colour while protecting your hair from free radial damage and UV radiation. The conditioner’s lightweight formula gives your hair a soft feeling, without weighing it down with excess product.
These products are a shampoo and conditioner that you’ll want to use hand-in-hand. You’ll fall in love with the light, sweet, and fruity scent of these natural haircare products that blend peach nectar, pear, and green cucumber. These products are 100% vegan and use CO2 compensated packaging.
If you have oily hair, your main concern is going to be about removing the excess sebum from your scalp to reduce the greasy appearance of your hair. The Yorkshire Goddess Natural Shampoo Bar is one of the most hyped products from Kuwaloo. It’s blend of natural ingredients are hard to beat. We love the pink clay that helps to absorb excess oils form your scalp, while the jasmine and ylang ylang oils help to control the sebum production in your hair.
The organic cider vinegar helps restore your hair’s natural shine. We think of the Yorkshire Goddess Natural Shampoo and Conditioner Bars as an instant win-win. Buying your hair products in a bar form is always more sustainable and eco-friendlier than purchasing plastic bottles or tubs.
Your haircare concerns might be less about your strands and more about your scalp. There’s nothing worse than dealing with an itchy or flaky scalp, which can often slow down hair growth and lead to an array of problems. The Wild Science Lab Leaf and See Head First Scalp Relief Shampoo is our go-to for restoring your scalp to its natural state and to bring vitality back to your hair. It’s ideal for irritated scalp and those with breakage prone hair.
We recommend using the shampoo in partnership with the Leaf and Seed Head Way Scalp Recovery Conditioner as both products include CBD, a natural antioxidant, and fatty acids, vitamin E, and omega 3 & 6. This combination of ingredients helps to nourish your scalp and bring it back to its former glory.
These products have a mid-tier price tag, making them the perfect choice for upgrading your haircare routine. Both of these products act as the perfect foundation for your haircare routine and work with all hair types, including colour treated hair.
One hair type that is often overlooked is fine and weak hair. If you’re someone who is prone to breakage and slow hair growth, you want to be using a shampoo and conditioner that will help to strengthen your hair.
The Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Joia Strengthening and Soothing Shampoo and Conditioner is our number one choice for strengthening your hair. It’s powered using plant-based keratin that bonds your split ends and prevents future damage. It incorporates the brand’s Cheirosa ’62 fragrance of pistachio, vanilla, and salted caramel for a mouth-watering aroma.
These products will restore your hair to make it silky soft and repair damage caused by bleach, colouring, or heat products.
When you have coloured hair, you want to take extra steps to make sure you’re looking after your hair. While bleached hair might be an aesthetic you enjoy, it comes with extra maintenance. The key to keeping your bleached hair healthy is to use a purple toning shampoo and conditioning. For a vegan formula, we vote for the Aveda Blonde Revival Purple Toning Shampoo and Conditioner.
These products work to neutralise the brassiness in your hair, giving your blonde hair that looks just as good as when you stepped out of the salon. Don’t forget to show your roots some TLC as well!
We can’t write an ultimate guide for vegan hair products without including a hypoallergenic option. If you’re someone who struggles with skin sensitivity, you want to find a shampoo and conditioner that is just as hypoallergenic as your body wash.
The Faith in Nature product range includes fragrance-free shampoos and conditioners, which are also free from essential oils and colour. They’re a must-have for anyone with skin sensitivity and are packed full of natural ingredients, along with anti-dandruff benefits.
We recommend using the budget-friendly Faith in Nature Fragrance Free Shampoo and Conditioner to kickstart your haircare routine.
