It is possible to have haircare that’s plant-based AND within budget. Below are a variety of vegan shampoo and conditioner sold by UK supermarkets. It couldn’t be any easier to just pop in your trolley, or add to your next online order!
Pure Purify Shampoo and Conditioner – Waitrose
Water Lily is a key ingredient in this shampoo, which I think sounds rather spa-like! The conditioner contains argan oil and is designed for dry and damaged hair.
Faith in Nature Shampoos and Conditioners – Ocado
These are thankfully sold all over the place, including Superdrug, Boots and Holland and Barrett. However, it makes my list as you can add it to your Ocado shop. All of their products are vegan-friendly so take your pick from their whole range!
Green People Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner – Ocado, Morrisons & Waitrose
Winner of the Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible Award, this shampoo and conditioner set also cruelty-free, vegan, organic and fairly traded. Sounds appealing to me!
Jason Natural Cosmetics Volumizing Shampoo – Morrisons & Ocado
No parabens, no petrolatum, no sulphates and no artificial colours. In addition, it also has an earth-friendly formula, is biodegradable and cruelty-free.
Yes to Coconut Ultra Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner – Ocado
Designed to restore dry, damaged hair, the ‘Yes to Coconut’ set provides a natural formula that uses natural moisturisers to repair your hair. Apparently you hair will ‘smell amaze’. I assume like coconut!
Maui Moisture Thicken and Restore Bamboo Fibre Shampoo and Conditioner – Asda & Sainsbury’s
SLS free, there a number of different scents and formulas you can try. More importantly, if you have specific concerns about which shampoo is best for you they take individual questions on their website and happily provide detail from pH range to whether or not it will be suitable for hair extensions.
Happy Naturals Everyday Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner – Sainsbury’s
Another haircare set that is free from all the nasties. Happy Naturals range is available at Sainsbury’s and includes Argan & Avocado and Macadamia & Hemp.
Urtekram No Perfume Shampoo – Ocado
For those looking for fragrance-free shampoo, this may be your answer. Using Aloe Vera to moisturise your hair, it avoids unnecessary ingredients. It has also been approved by the Official Danish Organisation, as suitable for those with allergies and asthma. I should probably point out that the product originates in Denmark…hence the Danish approving it!
Co-Op Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner – Co-Op
Many of their shampoo and conditioner sets are vegan and cruelty-free so have a look when you next pop in!
A’kin Natural Dry Shampoo – Ocado
Couldn’t not include this as dry shampoo is a staple for lots of people. You might be interested to know that A’kin use bamboo and rice powder to add that lift to your hair. The reviews are a bit mixed – some love it, other’s find the smell too much. I’m yet to give this one a go…
Hopefully that gives you at least one option that you can buy on your weekly shop, without breaking the bank. Of course, not every supermarket stocks every product, but fingers crossed your local store has the one you want in. Alternatively, there are lots of options online. If you’d like to throw some into your Amazon basket for the next time you check out, then take a look at the options here.
