I am looking for a good vegan shampoo and conditioner, so I'd like to know what your favorite brands are! What do you swear by for healthy manageable hair? Are there any products you wouldn't use again?

Thanks in advance!
I use Dr Organic Deep Sea Salt from Holland and Barrett :) It's especially good as I have eczema on my scalp at the moment. I did used to use the Aloe Vera Dr Organic but found it made my hair a bit greasy.

I use Organic Care/Natures Organic, LUSH and De Lorenzo depending on availability and budget.

I have very curly, fine hair that gets coloured regularly....On top of that, I don't always drink enough water and my hair seems to feel it the most.

So, I try to do a deep condition at least once a week with LUSH's Fluff-Eze or one of the De Lorenzo treatments. I don't shampoo my hair, but I condition it in the shower 1-2 times a week. If I'm styling it with anything, it's usually the R&B creme from LUSH as well.

Other than that, I kind of forget about my hair....Though sleeping on a satin pillowcase has helped it.

MelimomTARDIS, you are not alone! I switched to a Tangle Teezer a long time ago, but now I almost exclusively use my wide tooth comb. The Tangle Teezer is a good option though, I found it very non-damaging and love it for my kids hair. Make brushing easy.

Help?
I was just about to post a thread on this.
I am transitioning to veganism and I have a big afro. I also cant use coconut oil on my hair, and most hair care lines carry this.
I think the big thing stopping me from being vegan is hair care as I love my hair and don't want to sacrifice it for anything.
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?

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.

White rain is a bargain brand here in the US who doesnt use animal derived ingredients/test on animals. The shampoo has sulphates, but its fairly diluted, so I find it to give a gentle lather and leaves my hair soft, not dry.

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/animal-ingredients-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..
