I use John Masters Organics. Some of their products are vegan. I've been thinking about trying apple cider vinegar and stuff like that but I'm simply too lazy!

There is a raw vegan cruelty free brand called Morrocco Method but the prices are just...wow, no way.
I'm on a low budget so expensive stuff are out of the question.

Any recommendations please?
Should I just make my own?
If you can make your own stuff I would go for it

I have heard of quite a few natural haired beauties using vo5 (not tested on animals) as a co-wash, and as a leave-in. Then using the matching shampoo as a "clarifying" wash every two weeks or so.

Id also look into using an oil you like, if coconut is out, try olive, or jojoba. I have had success using frizz buster serum (a silicone oil), available at sally's (also not tested on animals) as a post wash leave in.

As far as deep treatments, I'd probably look into homemade hair masks, but I have no recipes, as my hair type doesnt require these treatments. I hope that helps!

I use either Giovanni or Nature's Gate, I generally alternate between the two.

All of Dr. Bronner's products smell like butt.

I use JASON, if you have ever heard of it. It is vegan & not tested on animals. It works really well for me.

I use plant-based shampoo & body wash from Whole Foods.

I get squeaky clean.

All animals should be respected & should have the ability to lead a natural & enjoyable life. This means not eating them, or abusing them in any way.

My favorite part of the brand is the scents, which are really fresh and light. The shampoo makes my hair smell like grapefruit juice. The conditioners I have tried from this brand tend to be thick, and work well.

The detangler is marketed to kids, and my kids use it, and the matching shampoo. The shampoo is extra watery-diluted, so it makes a very mild cleanser. My kids like it!

The hair spray comes in a coordinating scent to the shampoo, so sort of grapefruity. they have an unscented one too.

I use Dr. B's tea tree on my face I can only use plain soap on most of me, face included. My skin is too sensitive for most of the stuff on the market. I have tried some "natural" shampoos in the past, and other bargain brands, but I can get really painful/itchy scalp hives from things. I do best with mild, clear shampoos that rinse totally clean.
hi i was wondering how white rain is vegan? i am a newbie vegan and i went into 99c store today to buy a few things and stumbled across white rain, daily defense, salon selectives, and vo5. i bought some shampoos & conditioners from each thinking they were vegan but when i looked into it and using this site: http://www.peta.org/living/beauty/an...redients-list/ White Rain specifically has stearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, panthenol in their ingredients list just to name a few. so i think i will be returning both vo5 and white rain products.

i am confused about the Daily Defense and Salon Selectives shampoos & conditioners tho. they both have the peta cruelty free logo but this doesnt mean it's vegan does it? so bummed bc i thought i had hit a gold mine with these products, lol. but i think ill be returning all of them. i'd feel much better with buying vegan guaranteed products even tho im broke..

Biotene H 24 and some OGX shampoos/conditioners are vegan, I've used that, but with OGX you should be careful because a few things they have are not vegan.

I've used both lines, I'm very impressed with Biotene H 24 conditioner, but it wasn't cheap, it's about ten bucks.

Lush shampoo bars, as I've already mentioned, are good.

Personally though I'm trying to move in the near future towards low poo and DIY options, because good brands can get pricey, and of course you will know homemade treatments are vegan since you use basic plant based ingredients and can opt to stay away from recipes containing honey or eggs.

I use wen and really like it. I'm older, I'm not sure it would have worked for me when I was younger with oilier hair.
