Achieve Gorgeous Hair With These Vegan Hair Brands
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.

Being a lover of animals doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style. Vegan haircare can be sophisticated, decadent and deliver ‘Wow!’ results.
Curology vs The Ordinary! Which is better?!
Curology - Curology formula This is the first photo! Did wonders for my skin it was the best it had ever been since I started getting acne in middle school. Curology literally saved my skin, it was clear and great! (Over a year later) The second photo:/ I decided to stop using curology around 2 months ago and start using ordinary products. I decided to do this because I wanted to see if the ordinary could do the same thing as curology and maybe make my skin even better. This wasn’t because curology was bad or anything It was just something I wanted to test. I was pretty confident in my skin so I didn’t think it would be bad. I saw on social media how great it was so I figured why not? ... After slowly introducing ordinary products into my skincare routine to ( i used both ordinary and curology products together) I could see that my skin was breaking out more when I introduced the ordinary products. I didn’t think much of it cause I knew that my skin was just purging from the new products. After about 2 months of using both curology and ordinary products I decided to just try ordinary products because my skin was breaking out a lot and I felt that the ordinary would help it. (I think should’ve stuck with curology but this was just my curiosity about the product). ... (Now) I am on week 6 of using all ordinary products and this is what my skin looks like (photo 2) and I’m not happy with the results:/The first couple weeks I knew I would be purging, my skin was at its worst a couple weeks ago (week 3). But I figured that by now or next week my skin would be clear( the only reason I felt that my skin would be pretty much clear by now or next week was because while using curology all my acne was gonna by week 7). So I’m still trying to figure out if I wanna continue to use the ordinary products for a couple more weeks before I give up because it’s not giving me the results I want. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I don’t really know how to rate this because obviously it hasn’t worked for my skin very well but I’m not sure if it’s because my skin needs more time to adjust (it has been 6 weeks so...). I think that this product works great for some people but for me definitely not. Right from the start of using it, it broke me out and then once I only used this line of products it made my skin terrible. I also used The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution Which didn’t do much in the 6weeks I used it. I did feel like it helped my acne a little. Overall I really did wish this line of products would help my acne and make my skin clear like curology but that wasn’t the case. This product line is definitely not for my skin. I’ll write out my skin care routine comparisons in my next post!
Sensitive Skin Game changer ❄️
What is the product? Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray How does it work? Thermal Water works by soothing the skin and calming any irritation What are the notable ingredients? Mineral Spring Water What is the price? $18.50CAD Where can you purchase? Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall Pharmacy and online How long have I been using it for? I’ve been using thermal water for over two years, I started off using this product on my body and now still use it on my face What is my experience ? My experience with thermal water has been good, I suffer from eczema on both my body and face. It was hard finding products that wouldn’t irritate or cause a flare up. When that happened this product saved my skin and soothed it. At first I was not exactly sure how water would help my skin, but after doing research thermal waters are meant to have healing properties for the body and skin. What are my thoughts? This product is nothing short of amazing, you are able to use it for multiple areas and it lasts so long. The mist is super fine which makes it perfect for spraying on large or small spots, and pressing into the skin similar to how you apply a toner. Would I recommend to a friend? I would absolutely recommend this product to a friend or family or even someone looking to help soothe their skin but who doesn’t want to break the bank!! My overall rating? 5/5 Would I repurchase? I have and will continue to repurchase this product until I find something that exceeds how amazing this is! #CheriePartner
