Trying to find good natural and vegan hair products can often feel like being on a quest for the holy grail. With the lack of chemicals involved in natural hair care, it seems almost impossible to find a shampoo that lathers up nicely while also cleaning your hair. Or finding a conditioner that nourishes your hair without making it look greasy 6 hours after you washed it.
With every person’s hair and preferred hair care routine being absolutely unique, it’s almost impossible to recommend a single brand that will make everyone happy. That’s why it’s good to know that there are more and more vegan brands for you to try out.
