Are there any cheap brands of vegan hair products that can be found at main retail stores like WalMart or Target? I have curly, very frizzy unmanageable hair. It's taken me forever to find a decent product for my hair, and now I use a leave-in conditioning cream from Garnier Fructis. My hair is still frizzy, but it's as manageable as I can get it without it being crunchy or hard. I think Garnier might test on animals, though, so I want to find a good product for frizzy, curly hair that is vegan. I have a John Frieda curly shampoo right now, and I heard they don't test on animals, but that some people still question this. I also have a John Frieda curly spray that I sometimes use if it's really humid that day. We usually buy whatever conditioners are on sale or we have coupons for, so right now I have a Garnier conditioner, and I have unopened Pantene and Suave conditioners, but when I googled it, I heard these might test on animals, too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> For body wash I use a victoria's secret brand, and it says they don't test on animals, but I don't think they have any hair products or anything. Are there any common brands like these that have good vegan hair products?<br><br>
Also, are there any common brands of vegan toothpaste that I could get at WalMart? I currently use Sensodyne, but I think they may test on animals, too. Also, are there any common brands of vegan mouthwash?

Do you have a Trader Joe's in your area. They have products cheap. I use Alba Botanical for hair gel and leave in conditioner. It's about $10.00 each at the health food store. So it's not real cheap. I don't know if you can find any 100% vegan hair products at Walmart.<br><br>
I use Tom's of Main toothpaste. I don't use mouth wash.<br><br>
Sorry I was not a lot of help. I have coarse hair with some curl so I can sympathize with that manageability issue. My hair does what it wants.

There are vegan hair products at Superdrug (their own brand); I'm pretty sure there are products for curly hair. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I just found out that Tom's of Maine is available at WalMart, they have a promotion page for it on their website. Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Thank you! The price of the products in the line seem to be very good, they seem to have different products for different hair types, and they're also sulfate free! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

I've never heard of Superdrug, but I'm going to look for one near me! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Thanks!

i have super curly hair as well (similar to solange knowles) and the everpure line is a good first step to get away from sulfates. i don't use sulfates and try to stay away from silicones as well (anything ending in -cone). i've found alba & giovanni at walmart, target & sometimes biglots. if i'm not mistaken the entire giovanni line is vegan. they cost just a bit more but are worth it for quality. if you have a marshall's/tjmax or ross near you, check them out, too. i sometimes see jason's & other potentially vegan hair items at ross. just this week at marshall's i found the big (with the pump at the top) bottles of giovanni shampoo, conditioner & body wash (more than one kind) for $12-14. that's a steal considering the small bottles are at least $8 at walmart. i've also found tom's toothpaste & mouthwash in walgreen's, walmart, target & biglots. hth!

You can get Tom's toothpaste pretty much anywhere.

I have coarse, very wavy hair, and found no-shampoo is the very best! There have been other thread about no-poo. I use about 1 tablespoon baking soda to 1 cup water in a squirt bottle, and same proportions of apple cider vinegar and water in another. I just squirt the bs water on my scalp, massage, rinse, follow by the vinegar rinse. You need a lot of patience because it took about a month before my hair got used to this. Shampoos seem to cause a lot of oil strippage from scalp, but also more production so it looked pretty dirty for the first 3 weeks. Now I'd never go back because my hair is always soft and managable. I don't even use the baking soda more than 3 times a week. Sometimes I'll use an organic conditioner diluted instead of the vinegar.

Superdrug is UK-based, just FYI. Also, be careful to check ingredients on the Loreal line, as it's not all vegan, I believe. Whole Foods has wicked cheap stuff too, if there's one near you. It's very un-WholeFoods-like, but their shampoos are like $2 a bottle.

As far as toothpaste goes there is (as mentioned above) Tom's Toothpaste, as well as Nature's Gate, and I love using <a href="http://www.greenbeaver.com/?___store=default&___from_store=french" target="_blank">Green Beaver</a> (Canadian Brand but sometimes it creeps over the border....the mint one is best) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
As far as hair care goes have you tried <a href="http://www.albabotanica.com/?title=Hair+Care" target="_blank">Alba's</a> line of hair products?

Walmart (at least mine) carries Dessert Essence Organics hair and body products I believe. They are completely vegan and cruelty-free. Also, L'Oréal tests on Animals.

How about a grocery store? My local Stop & Shop has a small "Naturals" section in the health and beauty aisle. The selection is pretty limited, but they have some stuff from Nature's Gate, Tom's of Maine, Kiss my Face, J/A/S/O/N and I think maybe also Desert Essence.<br><br>
It may be worth the trip out to a Whole Foods, Trader Joe's or even a small local health food shop (try looking on Google). Those places have rows and rows of cruelty-free products...It's pretty exciting <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Do you have a Sally Beauty Supply store near you? Some of their Ion brand shampoos (and other products) are vegan, and it says so right in front of the bottles if they are. I'm sure they have products for curly hair, although I'm not sure those are vegan. Worth a look though, and you could check their website. I actually just bought a can of their hairspray today and it said 100% vegan right on it. It's not super cheap, but their products tend to run anywhere between 7 to 10$ I think.

people have already mentioned this, but Tom's is a good one. Mainly because it has received the seal of approval from the American Dental Association and Canadian Dental Association (meaning it really does what it claims to do and doesn't harm your teeth and gums). I recently did a lot of research on this, so the information is still fresh in my brain ^^

I use Tom's toothpaste and LUSH shampoo and conditioner. I have thick wavy hair and I use the Cynthia Sylvia Stout shampoo and Veganese conditioner. I don't really put a lot of product in my hair but I think they have hair gel too. Also, Paul Mitchell doesn't test on animals and I believe most of their products are vegan.

I hate the vegan toothpastes that are out there.<br>
Google "tooth soap"<br>
Most specially made tooth soaps are vegan, and there are some regular hand bar-soaps that work just as well.<br>
I've also brushed with coconut oil in the morning... it freshens and cleans my mouth without altering the flavor of my breakfast.
