Affordable Vegan Products: Haircare Edition!
Finding good quality, vegan haircare products can be a nightmare, and if you’re trying to stick to a budget it’s even harder. Although many makeup brands have started making the switch, haircare brands fall majorly behind on going cruelty free. Even in Boots, Superdrug and supermarkets, only a handful of brands sold are cruelty free, and even less sell affordable vegan haircare products.
Luckily for you, I’ve rounded up all of my favourite vegan haircare brands, products and ranges. Hopefully this will make vegan haircare shopping on a budget just a little less stressful!
Budget Vegan Haircare Brands
All of the brands below are budget friendly, cruelty free and vegan.
Superdrug budget products are often the first on my list, for good reason! Their own brands are all completely vegan and cruelty free, and they have plenty of low-cost options too. You can bag 400ml of their vegan Pro Vitamin Shine shampoo or conditioner for just £2.29. They also have volumising or colour care editions for the same price. If you’re looking for truly nourishing ingredients, their Black Castor and Shea replenish shampoo and conditioner are just £5.49 each for 400ml.
Although Noughty aren’t majorly budget friendly, I thought they were worth a mention as they often have good sales on their website. They are a 100% cruelty free and vegan brand. Their shampoos and conditioners are usually £6.99 each, but you can often find them on sale for £4.49 or even less! They also have great deals on regularly, such as free products or free shipping, which you can find out about by signing up to their newsletter.
Kind Natured are another 100% vegan and cruelty free brand. They are sold exclusively at Boots, and have some very reasonably priced products. Their shampoos and conditioners are all around £5 per bottle. If you shop directly through their website, you get free UK shipping when you spend more than £10.
Happy Naturals Beauty are a brand I’ve only seen stocked at Sainsbury’s in the UK. This is especially convenient during lockdown, if you want to pick up your toiletries at the supermarket and make as few trips as possible! Their products are cruelty free and vegan, and their shampoos and conditioners start from £4 per 300ml bottle.
Affordable Vegan Haircare Ranges
Not all of the brands mentioned are totally vegan, but they are purse-friendly, cruelty free, and all of the products I mention are vegan.
Although not all of Lee Stafford’s products are vegan, they are all vegetarian and it’s easy to shop their vegan products online. Using the drop-down on their website, you can select to shop their vegan ranges. Shampoos and conditioners start at £5.99, which is a real bargain considering the quality of their products. In addition, they have some great low-cost vegan styling products. Theirs currently a sale on their website, so hurry!
Okay, I know this is a controversial suggestion, but hear me out! Lush shampoo bars, which are not only vegan and cruelty free but also packaging-free, too, are £8. That does sound quite pricey, but when you hear that each bar equates to three bottles of shampoo, that’s less than £3 a bottle. And, believe me, I’ve tried Lush shampoo bars and this claim is true. They last forever! They even last considerably longer than other shampoo bars I’ve tried, so I’d definitely recommend these if you’re looking for low-waste, budget friendly and vegan haircare.
Pro:Voke are a great cruelty free haircare brand that have a range of shampoos and conditioners for coloured hair. I love their purple shampoo for brassy tones in blonde hair; I think it’s one of the best around. It’s vegan, too! Although, not all of their products are vegan, so be sure to check their ingredients. Their shampoos and conditioners range from £4.19-£4.99 at full price, although some of them are currently discounted online at Superdrug!
