Hey guys!<br><br><br><br>
I'm so excited about the ABBA products <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:"><br><br><br><br>
I bought a shampoo and conditioner yesterday and it's amazing the change in my hair with only one use. My hair is so soft and shinny after using it!!! I can't believe it!!! I think most products are natural and vegan....<br><br><br><br>
Here is the website<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.abbahaircare.com/" target="_blank">http://www.abbahaircare.com/</a><br><br><br><br>
Does any of you use these products?<br><br><br><br>
I found them by mistake... went to Trader Secrets to get Redkins and I left with ABBA. What a great choice <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:">

From their site it says they are <b>100% vegan, Eco-sensitive, Cruelty Free, Free of synthetic dyes - sulfates and DEA</b>.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks for bringing them to my attention. I just got a perm on Tues and I'll need to buy "special" care products. I'll definitely give this a try.<br><br>
My hairstylist only buys cruelty free products ... but she doesn't sell them.

I used to use the ABBA moisture scentsation conditioner a few years ago. Actually, it was before I became as animal welfare/environmentally conscious as I am now. It's good stuff. The super strong peppermint tingle is therapeutic! Now I want to get some again.

Really? I have tried Abba products before and didn't care for them, with the exception of the gel-essentials.

*Disappointed*<br><br><br><br>
I haven't tried these products yet. I couldn't find any salons in my area that sold them. Finally I found them on Amazon and purchased a $50 set (conditioner, shampoo, curl activating tonic)<br><br><br><br>
They arrived today and they are NOT vegan. There is a questionable ingredient in the <i><b>ABBA True Curls</b></i> product line.<br><br><br><br>
Equisetum Arvense Extract (source: Horsetail)<br><br><br><br><br><br>
It actually says right on the bottle that it comes from horsetail. Unless someone can prove that there is a flower or plant with this name, this in not vegan.

It's vegan.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horsetail" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horsetail</a><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">The name horsetail arose because it was thought that the stalk resembled a horse's tail, the name <i>Equisetum</i> being from the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin" target="_blank">Latin</a> <i>equus</i>, "horse", and <i>seta</i>, "bristle".</div>

ETA: They have honey in some of their products. Ugh. So they're liars.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.abbahaircare.com/body_polish_pp.html" target="_blank">http://www.abbahaircare.com/body_polish_pp.html</a>

Thank you VeggieJanie! I feel better.<br><br><br><br>
There is no honey in the products I bought.<br><br>
\\<br><br><br><br><br><br>
ETA: Son of [email protected]! The shampoo and Conditioner now seem to be free and clear for use, but the <b>curl activating tonic</b> has <b>PEG-75 lanolin</b> in it. which as far as I know only comes from the wool of sheep.

*shrugs* I tried their hairspray today... not really impressed. It cost a zillion dollars and it didn't work any better than the cheap crap [still not tested] I ususally use. Won't be buying it again.
