Cruelty-free shampoo brands are more readily available than most people may know! From oily hair to damaged hair, we want to share with you the wonderful options in cruelty-free shampoo brands.
As for my story, I’ve been experimenting with all kinds of shampoo for my hair. I have a dry scalp with build-up, and it gets pretty frustrating because I love wearing my dark-colored blouses. I’ve used shampoo with coal tar, but this ingredient is a type of carcinogen that is unhealthy for skin. So not only am I looking for cruelty-free, anti-dandruff shampoo — I want to make sure that it’s good for my scalp and hair. I’m curious to hear about what your main concerns would be in choosing shampoo.
To start us off, the team and I have compiled a list of our picks from 9 cruelty-free shampoo brands. We’ve also included some that are vegan! How did we decide on these products? We obsessively scoured through reviews and recommendations. We’d love to hear what you think if you decide on any of these products.
*Products marked with 🍓 are 100% vegan!
