Today, finding vegan hair styling products is easier than ever.
You don’t have to eschew meat in the rest of your life to use vegan only products for your hair. Whether you’re an omnivore, pescetarian, nutritarian, lacto-ovo vegetarian, or hardcore vegan, you can help prevent the needless cruelty of cosmetic animal testing by purchasing cruelty free hair styling products.
Using these plant-based hair care products is a perfect way to leave your hair looking and feeling amazing without the residue and damage that can go along with traditional hair products. It also leaves you feeling amazing without the emotional residue and damage that can go along with condoning animal cruelty.
Cruelty Free Shampoos
Hair care starts with washing – it’s the root of keeping your roots healthy and feeling their best! Here are some shampoos that are not only easy on your hair, they’re also easy on the animals.
Volume is a quality that many of us are searching for in our quest to get hair that’s not only amazingly sexy, but also that’s amazingly manageable. Enter Big Sexy Hair Big Volume Moisturizing Detangling Shampoo. This revolutionary shampoo infuses hair with the needed vitamins and minerals that build it up and leave it bigger and better. The Sexy Hair line is never tested on animals

Cruelty Free Conditioners
The other important part of keeping your hair feeling fantastic is using a conditioner that supports easy brushing without weighing hair (or your conscience) down. Enter these hair care products which are not tested on animals – conditioning without cruelty.
