I went into Superdrug earlier to stock up on their own brand vegan hair care products, and found they had disappeared. When I asked an assistant she told me they have being discontinued. Whether they will be replaced with new products she didn't know.<br><br>
On the Superdrug website they still have them (in the clearance section) - and with free delivery. I suggest you all stock up, just in case they aren't being replaced (and also email Superdrug to ask them to replace them with other vegan alternatives).

It could just be that they are reformulating them, and they will still be vegan. But just in case, order some off the website now. I've just ordered 10 bottles!

If things don't sell, they go away, if they do sell, they may be coming out with better/different kinds.

Awww I don't use superdrug hair products but I do use a lot of their other stuff. I thought they stopped making their make up remover and clenser the other day though, but I just was looking at the wrong self, but I can sympathise with how you feel 'cause it was sad till I re-found them!<br><br>
Really though, even though I don't use them, I like to know there's good, cheap, labeled vegan products out there! I use alberto balsam (sp?) which I contacted the company and found out was vegan, and is also dead cheap and gives me much nicer feeling hair than original source did (at a fraction of the cost!). If they don't bring any new out, when your stock runs out, that's another option anyway.

Alberto Balsam is vegan?! YES!<br><br>
Although I wish they did a decent coloured hair one.... That's why I love superdrug's stuff...

That's good about Alberto Balsam: I never knew. I won't be running out for a while though: I ordered 10 bottles from the Superdrug website!!

I emailed Superdrug customer care about this, here's the response I received today:<br><br>
"Thank you for your e-mail.<br><br><br><br>
I can confirm that certain hair card ranges have been discontinued. For example, Superdrug Multi Tones hair colourant.<br><br>
However the majority of our Superdrug hair care products are being re-branded and re-packaged and should be returning to store soon.<br><br><br><br>
Is there any particular product you are interested in? With this information we can provide you with a more suitable response to that particular item."<br><br>
They sure do love to take new paragraphs.<br>
Anyone want me to email back about any product in particular?

Yes I emailed a while back to check, I heard someone online mention it, and they said they didn't test on animals and there were no animal products in their shampoos and conditioners. You can check yourself though by emailing to double check. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

That's good news! My stock of 10 should last up until they are back on the shelves then!

I've never heard of Alberto Basalm, where can you get it?</div>
</div>
<br>
Superdrug! And Tesco's - most supermarkets sell it, I think. It's generally cheap too, and they have some lovely fruit fragranced shampoo and conditioners - the green apple one is heavenly!

I've seen Alberto Basalm is pretty much every supermarket. Currently in Morrisons it's £3 for 4 bottles. (They're £1 each usually.)<br><br>
Seen the same offer in Tesco a few months ago as well.<br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Brilliant!<br><br>
Ummm.. Could you ask for me? Their Raspberry and Macadamia Nut Shampoo and the matching conditioner. The one for coloured hair. I think it's part of their Naturals range.<br><br><br><br>
If they've got rid of it I'm going to have some serious issues. I have to have several different shampoos and conditioners and rotate them because I can't use the same stuff for more than one wash in a row. My hair doesn't like it. So I normally have at least 6 different ones. Finding vegan normal shampoo/conditioner that is cheap is usually OK but finding it for coloured hair is a royal PITA. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/brood.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":brood:">

I contacted them about both the raspberry&macadamia shampoo and matching conditioner, here's their response:<br><br>
"Thank you for your response.<br><br><br><br>
I can confirm that we have no plans at present to discontinue either of these Superdrug products.<br><br><br><br>
Thank you for contacting Superdrug."<br><br>
Result! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> x

They've already rebranded some things hereabouts (hairspray, for instance). I like their spray gel stuff, the one in the black/purple bottle. I had some things from Gianni (at Whole Foods) that I really liked too, but then something in them started making my head break out!<br><br>
I'm disappointed that they've stopped making hand lotion (used to come in sort of aqua colored tubes, maybe 3-4 varieties) that were vegan and paraben-free. They have a new line, but all have parabens.<br><br>
I do love the Une line (makeup) that they've been carrying though. Their powder foundation is fab.
