The best cruelty-free, vegan shampoo & conditioner for your hair

New to vegan hair care? Read on to discover everything you need to know about making the switch to our plant-based, 100% vegan shampoos and conditioners.

How can a vegan diet affect hair health?

The number of people following a vegan diet is increasing year on year yet few vegans consider the impact following a vegan lifestyle could have on the health of their hair.

Healthy hair is reliant on a specific set of nutrients including; essential fatty acids, vitamins A, B, C, and D and the minerals Calcium, Zinc, Iron and Copper. Without an ample supply of these nutrients the volume of blood supplied to the scalp can be compromised and this can result in the hair feeling greasy, dull and flat.

Those following a vegan diet can be at risk of missing out on some crucial dietary vitamins as well as Calcium, Iron and Omega-3 fatty acidsi. For this reason, it is important that vegans care for their hair using plant-based hair care that’s enriched with essential oils known to strengthen hair follicles and encourage healthy hair growth.

 

What makes our vegan shampoos so good?

Every product in the Green People hair care range is approved by the Vegan Society and PETA. This verifies that our hair care does not contain any animal derivatives and affirms that our products are 100% cruelty free. But what makes our vegan shampoos and conditioners so effective at keeping hair healthy?

  • They are entirely free from silicones, parabens and harsh synthetic detergents like SLS, a skin-irritating ingredient which can denature hair proteins
  • Our ultra-gentle, pH-balanced formulas preserve weak and brittle hair’s delicate acid coating
  • Each shampoo is made with natural, plant-based humectants so that hair is less vulnerable to dryness and split ends
  • With the exception of our Scent Free range, all Green People hair care is enriched with essential oils which help stabilise sebum production and encourage the grown of healthy, shiny hair
