What Is Vegan Shampoo and Conditioner?

Just like vegan food products and beverages, a shampoo or conditioner is considered vegan if it does not contain any ingredients derived from animals. In addition, a vegan shampoo or conditioner will often (but not always) be certified cruelty-free. For more details on this, read our FAQs below! 

A good way to look at it is by remembering that a vegan shampoo and conditioner will only contain plant-based ingredients. Here at PlantX, we think everyone should make the simple switch to more ethical hair products. We’ve gathered our top 4 reasons why you should make the switch to vegan shampoo and conditioner below! 

What Are Natural Shampoos and Conditioners?

Shampoo and conditioners that claim to be ‘natural’, will all be slightly different from each other, due to the different ingredients lists used by different brands. Always read the ingredient list to know exactly what’s gone into your product. 

Natural shampoo and conditioner are often made with plant-based ingredients and natural fragrances. They are also usually free from nasty additives and chemicals like parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and artificial colors and fragrances. This means these kinds of products are usually better for people who have sensitive skin or allergies.

Be warned that many products might state that they are ‘natural,’ when in reality only a small portion of the ingredient list will be natural, and the rest could be filled with nasty additives. To avoid this, do your research and check the ingredient list before purchasing any shampoo or conditioner that claims to be ‘natural.’

The Benefits of Natural and Vegan Shampoo and Conditioner

Even if you’re not vegan, there are still valid reasons to try out a vegan shampoo and conditioner. 

  • They’re more environmentally friendly!

Vegan shampoo and conditioner often contain natural and/or organic ingredients. This means that, unlike non-vegan hair products, these ingredients are able to biodegrade. Once the product goes down the drain, it can easily break down, without causing damage to land and water resources. 

As well as this, vegan shampoo and conditioner are more likely to come in sustainable, recyclable, or recycled packaging. Surprise, surprise - ethical brands creating cruelty-free products tend to care about the wellbeing of our planet too!

  • They contain ingredients that are better for you!

The aim of hair care should be taking the best care possible of your hair, right? That’s another reason why you should be using plant-based shampoo and conditioner. As we stated earlier, the ingredients used are often natural, meaning there’s less chance of these products containing harsh chemicals that could cause irritation or damage to your scalp or hair.

Non-vegan shampoos often contain ingredients such as sodium lauryl sulfate, a chemical that could lead to unhealthy and dry hair. They also often have parabens that could damage hair follicles, causing brittleness. To avoid this, it’s safer to buy a vegan shampoo and conditioner, which are highly unlikely to contain these kinds of ingredients. 

  • They’ll improve the state of your hair!

Vegan shampoo and conditioner are often fortified with essential oils. Essential oils are extracted from plants and could improve your hair in a variety of ways. For example, lavender oil has been associated with accelerating hair growth. Similarly, rosemary oil has been suggested to encourage hair growth and hair thickness. 

As well as this, research showed that tea tree oil could be an effective dandruff treatment. Research has also suggested that cedarwood oil could reduce hair loss! 

  • They’re kinder to animals!

Ok, we know this is an obvious one, but it’s definitely the most important! Vegan shampoo and conditioners are, of course, kinder to animals. The products don’t contain any animal derivatives and many are also not tested on animals. Buying a vegan shampoo and conditioner is the best way to ensure you’re doing your bit to help protect animal welfare.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I find out if my shampoo and conditioner are vegan?

Vegan shampoo or conditioner will often state if it is vegan or plant-based on the bottle. Here are a couple of ingredients you should look out for which are definitely not vegan:

Honey: Even if a product says it is cruelty-free, it may still contain ingredients like honey.

Biotin: This comes from milk and yeast, and is rich in vitamin B. Go for a vegan shampoo and conditioner that uses plant-derived vitamin B.

Stearic Acid: Although this can be plant-derived (from shea or cocoa butter), sometimes it is sourced from animals.

Keratin: Keratin is a protein that humans produce themselves, but when used in shampoo or conditioner, it comes from the ground up horns, hooves, feathers, and hairs of other animals.

Gelatin: This is, of course, an animal-derived protein. Irish moss, seaweed, or silica gel are good vegan alternatives. 

Hyaluronic Acid: This is usually derived from the umbilical cords or joint fluids of animals.

Cetyl Alcohol: Although this can be plant-derived (often from coconut), it is also likely to be sourced from animal-derived wax. 

We recommend you always check the ingredients list on your hair products and do some research on the brands you’re buying from. To be safe, we recommend going for brands that are certified vegan and cruelty-free, so you can be sure you’re buying the right vegan hair products.

If a shampoo or conditioner is cruelty-free, is it vegan?

Unfortunately, no. And it’s actually the same vice versa. Vegan shampoo and conditioner are not always cruelty-free. Just because an ingredients list is 100% plant-based, doesn’t mean it isn’t tested on animals. And if a product says it is cruelty-free, it could still contain animal-derived ingredients. The word ‘vegan’ often refers to the ingredients list and ‘cruelty-free’ refers to the production process. If you want to ensure you’re protecting animal welfare, try and buy a product that is both certified vegan and cruelty-free.. 

Is organic shampoo and conditioner better?

Here at PlantX, we think that organic shampoo and conditioner (that’s also vegan) is the way to go. Organic hair products may be the right choice for you if you want to avoid harsh or synthetic chemicals in formulas, meaning they are often better for sensitive skin.

Not only that, organic products are better for the environment. The ingredients are grown without GMOs, synthetic chemicals, or fertilizers that could cause damage to the surrounding soil and water.

Are your products toxin-free and kid-safe?

If you’re looking for a kid-safe and toxin-free vegan hair product, you’ve come to the right place. Browse our website and opt for products specifically made for children. These products will use child-safe ingredients that you can use on your child without worry! Even better, opt for a product that uses natural ingredients too. 

I have curly hair, will your products work for me?

Of course they will! Here at PlantX, we want to cater to all our customers. Use Giovanni Cosmetics’ Tea Tree Triple Treat Shampoo & Conditioner which is formulated for all hair types. Using antibacterial tea tree, the shampoo will thoroughly clean your hair and scalp. The soothing conditioner will coat your hair in lovingly moisturising ingredients, for softer and stronger hair after use. It’s perfect for detangling curly hair too! 

Are your hair products safe for color-treated hair?

If your hair is dyed, bleached or colored, we would recommend making sure you buy a product that states it’s suitable for treated hair. A lot of our products are in fact suitable to use for colored hair. For example, the Acure Dry Shampoo is an efficient and handy product to have around if you don’t have time to properly wash your hair! Browse our website for more vegan shampoo and conditioner that are suitable for color-treated hair.
