Yeah, I am obsessed with my hair. Not really, but I want to grow it out.

I was thinking Aveda products- they seem expensive and smell REALLY good, but are they good for your hair? I tried Aubrey Organics conditioner, and that smells good but doesn't seem really DEEP enough. I have dry ends...and oily roots. And I am on a budget, but I'm curious about high budget picks too.



So, tell me all about it.

I like Aussie products, I'm not sure if they're vegan but they work very well. They also have a shampoo/conditioner that's called duel personality I believe, it's for oily roots and dry ends (I have the same problem) and it works great.

<<<<----- Is really cheap and hair obsessed, my favorite products



Aloe gel, the clear unscented kind

Shea butter and olive oil

VO5 conditioners

Good quality hair toys (scrunchies or hair hosiery for braids, etc. hair sticks for buns)



Longhaircommunity.com has lots of good advice

I've been using Nature's Gate and it seems to be working well for me You can buy it in bulk at health food stores... it's $4 a pound or something? I'm not sure what kind of budget you're on though.

Regarding my budget, I don't want to spend more than 6-8$ on a single product. I'm also trying to stay stocked with healthy food and water, lol.

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone.

Here is a list but not sure if they are all vegan friendly though..



Redkin, Sebastian, KMS, Farouke, Back to Basics, Wella, Logics, Abba, Texture, Biosilk, Vavoom (good for fine hair) Grahm Webb, Charles Werthington, Big Sexy Hair. This was just from the top of my head though. Of course the obvious Biolage, Nexxus, and Aveda is great. Ice is a newer one. (I think)



These are more of the expenisive ones though. Okay now Therma Silk I do like a little.



Pourosity Control is a good brand if you have a Sally's Supply around you. If you do, you can find some good ones there also. I think it is made by Roux and they do have some other good products. An awsome deep conditioner is called K-Pack by Joico. How could I forget them. They have a great line also.

Oops, I just posted this list before I saw your post. I am thinking they are more than 8 bucks.

Tigi. I absolutely love Tigi products. And they're animal friendly.

I've been growing my hair out for 2 years now.. a few more inches and it'll be waist-lenght!! . My hair is in the best shape of its life and my routine is: Trader Joe's NourishSpa shampoo & conditioner ($2.99 a bottle, all organic) and Giovanni Vitapro Fusion leave-in conditioner (also all organic), which is a little pricey, about $7 a bottle but it's worth every penny. Also, I don't mess with my hair.. no blow drying, or hairspray or anything. I've definitely noticed a dramatic improvement in my hair's health after I stopped drying and styling it.

I just bought some of that last night! So far, so good. It left my hair nice and soft. Seemed like the perfect amount of conditioner for me.





Rainbowmoon, I think we share the same hair genetics. I also struggle with the oily roots, dry ends, and stubborn cowlick. My bangs will never lay straight without the life being blown out of them first.

Yeah, that sounds exactly like my hair! I have an insane cowlick at the front of my hairline- if I don't blow it then its like WOOOSH like a big cresent at the top of my head.

Does Trader Joe's have a website?!

They do have a website, but last I checked you can't order from it. It pretty much serves the purpose of finding the location of the closest store.



www.traderjoes.com

Aloe and a bobby pin takes care of my cowlick (it pushes the hair on the front of my part to the side no matter where I part my hair, I hate hate hate it) anyway, I part my hair after its most of the way dry and use aloe and a bobby pin to fix it where I want, then when my hair finishes drying I brush the aloe out so it doesn't look all gely and it stays until I wash my hair again (typically about 3-4 days, when ever my ends get dry)

They would really clean up if they had a website. The nearest store is at least two hours away from me.

I'd recommend Lush for hair care.

I've heard good things about Kiss My Face and Aveda hair products.



Several companies listed in this thread test their ingredients on animals. Back to Basics for example, they don't test the finished product on animals but they test/buy ingredients tested on animals. Don't rely on "No Animal testing" labels alone. There are no regulations for such labels. Email companies you're unsure of. Ask them if they test their products or ingredients on animals.



Caringconsumer.com has a list of companies that are cruelty-free and/or vegan.

About the vegan-ness of two of the brands/products listed...

BioSilk products actually contain hydrolyzed silk and some contain honey. Thermasilk also contains real silk protein.
