I have a 'thing' for beauty-shop high end brand shampoos. VO5 and the like make my hair feel like straw.
In the past, I have not been able to find a designer line that does not test on animals. Anyone have any suggestions?
TIGI Products (Bed Head, Cat Walk) are o.k. The only one that isn't vegan is the Cat Walk Oatmeal & Honey line for obvious reasons. Paul Mitchell is o.k. as well. Other than those, I don't know of any other high end products that are vegan (if that's what you're looking for).
Citre Shine is vegan but is a drug store brand.
Tip: Warm olive oil once a week on the last two inches of your hair. Let sit for a half hour or more (I use a plastic cap) then wash. Does wonders for dry hair. Also, wash your hair every other day and not every day. Inbetween using shampoo use conditioner. Try to pay attention from the ends up when conditioning. When shampooing, concentrate from the top down. I actually attempt to shampoo my scalp only and it works out pretty well.
ETA: you may find something in this thread as well.
Giovanni is organic and cruelty free, and I just LOVE their "Magnetic Power Treatment". It's a deep conditioner that makes my hair super silky, which is a real challenge considering the length of my hair and its dye history.
