Jun. 8, 2020
You’re vegan and so inevitably you spend far too much time checking the ingredients of almost everything you buy. It’s tedious, right? Well, no fear ladies! When it comes to great quality hair care that is also kind to our furry, scaly and fuzzy friends, we’ve done the research for you. Read on to learn about the principles and products of these iconic styling brands.
If living by vegan principles is a huge part of your identity and makes you feel proud, it should, that’s fantastic commitment you’re showing! Does some of your self-confidence come from knowing that you are rocking amazing hair? Us too! Hair care that cares for animals as well as our tresses is within reach.
The Batiste brand, creator of one of the world’s No 1 selling dry shampoos, is 100% vegan and claims not to test on animals though it is not endorsed by PETA or the Leaping Bunny initiative.
Personally? I think the invention of invisible formula dry shampoo was a work of pure genius. For sweaty gym goers, busy career women and stressed out school run Moms, a quick refreshing and body boosting spritz of oil soaking Batiste can be a lifesaver.
The best seller is still the Dry Shampoo in the Classic scent. New funky fragrances, brunette and blonde options and a hair-type specific caring range have all been launched and loved in recent years.
With 40 years of experience Batiste is a UK based brand you can trust to make your hair look fab, even after a few days of laziness!
Redken are an innovative brand who have recently launched a deluxe vegan range of shampoos and conditioners called ‘Nature + Science’.
These beautifully packaged, luxurious new formulations are 100% vegan, 99% naturally sourced, silicone free. Happily, the packaging is also 100% recycled and recyclable.
The ingredients are kind to animals but still have lots of Oomph! How do they do it?! By using proteins, adding effective but soothing ingredients and aiming for the same PH of human hair and skin.
Nature + Science’s ‘All Soft’ range smells divine and contains birch sap, amino acids, sugars and enzymes. It will create touchable tresses full of moisture and shine.
Redken was founded in 1960 by actress Paula Kent and Jheri Redding her hairdresser. They found that harsh treatments and products caused horrible allergic reactions. And so, forward-thinking Paula decided to invent gentle but impactful products
Redken say that they always strive to avoid animal-testing, but they are not a company who have been certified as ‘Cruelty free’.

Paul Mitchell is celebrating 40 years of planet friendly trading this year. Founders John Paul Dejoria and Paul Mitchell were friends who decided to create a company based on ‘Peace, Love and Happiness’ that would revolutionize the hairdressing industry.
Since 1980 they have been ‘Cruelty Free’ pioneers. Now each of their vibrant colors and most products are both vegan and super effective.
Paul Mitchell products represent affordable luxury. There’s something about that simple black and white bottle that screams elegance and class and the promise of touchable silkiness and visible gloss is irresistible.
So, what to try first?! Best-selling ‘Shampoo One’ is super gentle and moisturising while ‘Shampoo Two’ is oil reducing and volumizing. ‘The Conditioner’ is a leave in treatment that can remarkably transform the look of even the most awkward hair.

Wednesday Wellness 🙏🏾
This past week has been rather hard and long for me. I ultimately decided to get back on track with my wellness plan. My main wellness goal for 2021, is to indulge in myself more. I definitely am a firm believe in “as within, so without”. I started my day with: #Four Sigmatic - Mushroom Elixir Mix with Chaga[products]#[FiveStars] I have been getting back into adaptogen and herbal medicine. What we put into our bodies is just as important as what goes on the outside. Adaptogens are apart of ancient medicinal traditions traced all over the world. I also drink Tulsi “Holy Basil” Tea. If you need a pick me up or emotional boost I highly recommend! SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil is my treatment of choice I used during the day. Do not be afraid to use salicylic acid during the day. I applied plenty of sunscreen afterwards as well! This is a GODSEND for clearing up acne and acne scarring. It’s by far the best acne treatment I’ve tried and its mostly due to the immediate results I get. This is a dry oil, so it should be used before a heavy moisturizer or sunscreen. THE BODY SHOP - Spa of the World Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil is a staple in my night time routine. When I want to relax and really unwind I use a body roller with this oil. It smells like a fresh key lime pie and it’s so hydrating. This is great for firming, especially when paired with a body tool. What do you do for wellness?
Do It All Toner 🍃🍃
I have been loving the brand Truly lately ✨ I recently purchased this: 🍃TRULY - CBD Jelly Toning Solution 🍃 And it’s by far one of my favorite toners. Ingredients: 💚100MG CBD 💚Glycolic Acid 💚Tea Tree Oil 💚Organic Aloe 💚Rose Petal Extract This brand is also: 💚Vegan 💚Cruelty Free 💚Clean I use this every other night and it as tremendously helped my skin barrier and acne. I was really concerned about the glycolic acid irritating or drying my skin but it didn’t at all 🤩 I highly recommend this to combo and oily , acne prone skin. This will be a toner I keep in my night routine. I got it from Ulta (of course) for $24 (I paid $15 after coupons) Do you use CBD products? 🍃
Stay Young Forever? ✨
That’d be great right? Well in taking those steps, I definitely recommend these amazing serums. I was gifted the: Intoxicated Cosmetics: Snake Serum Bee Serum Snail Serum I started using the Snail Serum last night first and wow did I notice a difference. The Snail Serum mainly targets dryness. I used this in place of my usual night time serum and boy did I notice a difference. I N G R E D I E N T S : All Serums contain: ✨Niacinamide Bee Serum: Bee Venom Plant Based Stem Cells Royal Epigen Snake Serum Snake Venom Green & White Tea Extract Peptides Snail Serum Snail Peptide Hyadisine Echinacea Moronga Oil Extract I definitely will try the other serums in my routine as I get used to the Snail Serum but so far my skin is definitely happy. What serum would you like to try?
Clear Hydrated Skin The Clean Way✨
Staying in the trend of clean beauty, I have found an amazing product to add to my everyday routine. Odacité SKINCARE - Blue Aura Cleansing Water This is a cleansing water that is marketed to use in place of your cleanser for a “quick” clean. When looking for a good cleansing water, you want one that is hydrating and gets your face clean. Keep in mind not all cleansing waters are designed to clean makeup (I highly recommend a cleansing balm and cleanser). About This Brand: ✨Vegan ✨Cruelty Free ✨Certified Organic ✨ NO: Fillers | Parabens | Nanoparticles | Petrochemicals | PEG | Synthetic perfumes | Dyes | Phenoxyethanol. This cleansing water is so hydrating and satisfying to use. It smells very fresh and a little goes a long way. What is very important to me is my dry spot aren’t tight or irritated. I have been using this day and night and have seen amazing results acne and skin barrier wise. I included this in my routine after a regular cleanser and before my serums. So essentially, I use this as a “toner”. I do this to clean up anything my cleanse left behind, or the cleanser itself. INGREDIENTS: ✨Tumeric: Amazing for hyperpigmentation and overall skin brightness ✨Holy Basil: I drink the tea and can vouch this is an amazing adaptogen that can overall benefit every aspect of your life. It combats aging and free radical damage. ✨Neem: great anti aging ingredient that helps protects your skin barrier. ✨Aloe Vera Juice: this is great for your skin barrier overall. It hydrated, protects and brightens. I highly recommend this cleansing water and it is on sale for $9 at Boxycharm Pop Up 🥰🥰
