Bad hair days? No way! If the aisles of hair products at your local store put you off because they contain animal-derived ingredients, it doesn’t mean that your beautiful mane needs to miss out on looking healthy and fabulous. The next time you need some hair-boosting products, get your hands on vegan ones. Here are five vegan hair goodies that should be in everyone’s bathroom cabinet.
- More Manageable Hair :
Lather up your locks with vegan shampoo that doesn’t contain harmful chemicals like many store-bought varieties. Your shampoo should help to nourish and protect your hair, while making it easy to style, especially on those fast and furious mornings! Giovanni has many vegan products (check their FAQ section to get an idea of what products are not vegan) to keep your hair in tip-top condition. Their Smooth as Silk Deep Moisture shampoo for damaged hair tackles frizz and boosts shine.
- Get Hair Care and TLC:
Conditioner is a must, but choose an organic vegan product that makes use of herbal ingredients such as lavender to give your hair extra benefits. Lavender can treat hair loss, ease dandruff and even promote hair growth. Beauty Without Cruelty has a great lavender aromatherapy conditioner that helps to revitalize hair and the bonus is it works on all hair types.
- Set it in Style:
You’ve set your hair to 'stunning' - don’t let it fall apart after a long day or night on the town! It’s time to reach for some vegan hairspray. Aubrey Organics NuStyle Organic Hairspray contains biodegradable ingredients to hold your look together. Organic quinoa protein gives your hair more volume while adding shine and smoothness.
- Protect Your Tresses from Heat:
When regularly styling your hair with hair dryers, straighteners or curlers, you’re exposing your hair to a lot of heat that can lead to breakage and damage. You need to protect your hair with a protector spray before turning on your tools. Try Desert Essence’s Coconut Hair Defrizzer and Heat Protector that works deeply in the hair cuticle to nourish your locks while protecting them from any further heat damage.
