What is Vegan Hair Care?

Vegan and natural hair care products are usually made from natural, organic, and plant-derived ingredients. Unlike conventional non-vegan hair products, they are free from harsh chemicals such as sulfates, silicones, mineral oils, and synthetic perfumes. 

And of course, these plant-based hair products are never ever tested on animals or use animal-derived ingredients. Finally, 100% cruelty-free hair care. 

Why Choose Natural Hair Care Products?

There is a whole myriad of reasons why we think EVERYONE should be using vegan hair care products! Let’s take a look at just a few! 

  • Natural hair care products use renewable, botanical ingredients to nourish your hair. Natural oils like shea butter, jojoba oil, argan oil, cocoa butter, and other plant-powered ingredients feed, strengthen and replenish your hair without the need for harsh chemicals. 
  • Harsh chemicals found in conventional hair care products can strip your hair of its natural oils, cause a dry and itchy scalp and result in product build-up. Hair coated in synthetic ingredients can feel stringy and unpleasant. Transitioning to a natural hair care routine with plant-based hair products will have your hair looking and feeling healthier and happier in no time! 
  • Plant-based hair products are also better for the planet, using carefully crafted biodegradable formulas, avoiding polluting chemicals, and often packaged more thoughtfully in sustainable materials. 
  • Natural scents just smell better! Synthetic perfumes in non-vegan hair products often smell overpowering and artificial. Vegan hair products are usually scented with natural essential oils, meaning you can enjoy some soothing aromatherapy every time you wash your hair! 
  • No animal testing or animal-derived products in vegan hair products. This one’s a no-brainer! 

How do Vegans Keep Their Hair Healthy? 

Of course, step one to healthy hair is choosing a naturally replenishing cruelty-free hair care routine. However, those of us following a plant-based diet also have to be a little more careful about making sure we’re getting enough hair-nourishing nutrients

B vitamins (especially vitamin B7 or biotin) are particularly important for healthy hair, so be sure to eat lots of pumpkin seeds, almonds, walnuts, avocados, leafy greens, and other fresh fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds to get your daily dose! Protein-rich whole foods such as beans, lentils, and quinoa will also help keep your locks looking lustrous! 

We have a fantastic range of carefully chosen natural hair care supplements to choose from if you feel like you need a bit of extra help! These plant-powered dietary supplements may also help to nourish your nails and skin so it’s a win-win! 

How to Build a Natural Hair Care Routine to Suit Your Hair! 

Natural hair care products are packed with plant power, utilizing nature’s apothecary to strengthen and nourish your hair. But how can you choose which vegan hair products will suit your hair before investing? Here are a few top tips to help you build a vegan hair care routine with vegan hair products perfectly suited for your hair! 

  • What’s your hair type? Vegan hair products are carefully crafted to suit different hair types so it’s important to know what yours is! Do you have fine, medium, or coarse hair? Is your hair straight, wavy, curly, or coily? Is it dry, normal, or oily? If you need a little help figuring it all out, there are plenty of handy quizzes online to help you out! 
  • Feeling sensitive? Another important factor to consider when choosing your plant-based hair products is whether you have a sensitive scalp. If your scalp tends to feel dry, itchy, or inflamed after using products, opt for vegan hair products specially designed for sensitive skin! 
  • What are your hair goals? Identify a few hair goals to work towards and choose your cruelty-free hair care routine accordingly. Do you need vegan hair products to help your hair recover from damage? Are you looking for more growth and strength? Do you need great heat protection so you can keep experimenting with the curling tongs? Whether it’s anti-frizz, curl definition, scalp health, volume, shine, oil control, or more, we’ve got you covered!

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I Wash My Hair Daily?

Natural hair care experts agree that it is better not to wash your hair every day if you can avoid it. This is so you do not constantly rid your hair and scalp of its natural oils. These oils form a naturally moisturizing barrier, designed to protect your hair and skin.

However, if you have very fine hair that is prone to getting greasy, or you exercise and sweat every day, then feel free to wash your hair as often as you feel is needed. 

What is the Best Hair Care Routine for Curly Hair?

These days, there is plenty of information out there about how best to care for your curly hair. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to know where to start! We recommend using a natural hair care routine, with a plant-based shampoo or low-poo, a super nourishing conditioner, and just a couple of styling products such as a curl cream and a gel.

Curls benefit from infrequent washing, plenty of moisture and only being brushed or detangled when wet and coated in conditioner. 

How Can I Make My Hair Grow Faster?

There is no way to magically make your hair grow faster, no matter how much we might dream of long lush locks. However, there are a few lifestyle changes you can make to help your hair grow faster and stronger. 

  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet, and avoid restrictive dieting. 
  • Ensure you are getting enough protein from a variety of plant-based sources. 
  • Build and maintain a healthy natural hair care routine, without lots of heat, dye, or other chemicals. 
  • Try a scalp massage! This may help stimulate your hair scalp and promote strong, healthy hair growth. 
  • Check out our range of hair, nail, and skin vegan supplements.

How Can I Control My Frizzy Hair? 

Here at PlantX, we think you should embrace your natural hair. Frizz is an essential part of thick, voluminous hair and is nothing to be ashamed of! However, if you’re looking for a way to tame some of those flyaways, we have a few tips.

  • Protect your hair at night. Wear a silk or satin bonnet overnight to stop frizz occurring from friction with your pillow.
  • Swap to a silk or satin pillowcase. This can help retain moisture from products and natural oils and generates less friction than cotton.
