Here at Hair Styling Pros, we always talk about how we prefer natural hair products over chemically processed ones.

In fact, most “miracle cures” for your hair that actually work are not only natural, but vegan.

Things like coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, bentonite clay – all of these are vegan. And all of them make excellent tools for you to use on your journey to fabulous hair.

And while we don’t necessarily promote vegan hair products just because they’re vegan, we have to admit that they usually are pretty good in terms of their ingredients.

In this article, we will go over our top 15 picks for vegan hair products that will give you luscious locks – guilt free.

Authentic Beauty Concept Hydrate Conditioner

Hydrating your hair is just the ABC's of haircare

This cruelty free conditioner from Authentic Beauty Concept has a long list of things going for it.

It’s vegan, cruelty-free, and free from micro plastics, mineral oils, parabens, silicones, gluten, and sulfates.

(Isn’t it kind of sad that we desire some products because they lack harmful chemicals. Shouldn’t they all be safe?)

The one downside is that it’s not for all hair types. But if you have natural or curly hair, this is a great choice.

It’s $28, which isn’t exactly cheap. But I guess if you hate animals then you don’t have to buy it.

Rice Water Hair Growth Spray

This is an interesting product that claims to thicken hair.

In addition to rice water, it also has Vitamin B, Vitamin C, and aloe vera. We’ve never tried this product, so we can’t say whether or not it works.

But a vegan diet does lack critical nutrients, making some vegans prone to hair loss. So it’s possible that something like that would appeal to them.

Strangely, it does not say that it is cruelty free. Are there thousands of captive little bunnies being sprayed with rice water against their will? These are the answers we need.

Love Beauty And Planet Hope And Repair Shampoo
