Yeah, according to PGInfo.net, Herbal Essences is made by P&G. I hate to be the one to sound like I am preaching, but in my personal opinion, buying anything from this company is contributing to animal testing. Although the product itself was not tested on animals, the money you give to P&G ultimately will end up supporting other products that are.
But, like I said, that is just the way I feel. I personally prefer buying from companies that do not test at all, because buying from companies that do, no matter if that single product was or not, is wasteless.
If you are concerned about cheap and easy to access, I can recommend products from Alberto Culver, who has signed a 10 year treaty not to test on animals. They make VO5 (super cheap) and Tressemmee (good for damaged hair) and St. Ives (similar to Herbal Essences)
