THE BEST PLANT-BASED SHAMPOOS AND CONDITIONERS FOR SUMMER
Here’s a selection of the best vegan and cruelty-free shampoos and conditioners for summer-proofing tresses, no matter your hair type.
Best vegan products for colour-treated hair
Maria Nila Luminous Colour Shampoo and Conditioner
Swimming and sun-exposure diminish hair colour fast. Stockholm-born vegan haircare line Maria Nila is known for its expertise in colour-protecting haircare, and offers a rainbow of shade-specific nourishing hair masques with colour pigments that tone and refresh, from Peach and Pearl Silver to Vivid Violet.
For a luscious suit-all, plant-based colour care system, try the Luminous Colour Shampoo and Conditioner. This fresh, fruity smelling duo are enriched with protecting pomegranate extract, which helps to guard hair from the fading processes caused by washing, heat styling and UV rays. No sulphates or parabens – just soft, shiny, brightened hair. Slather on the Luminous Colour Masque once a week, or as needed, for an extra boost.
Best vegan products for dry and damaged hair
Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo and Conditioner
Salt water and chlorine can leave even the healthiest hair frazzled, so if your ends are already damaged, summer is a good time to invest in a powerful strengthening shampoo and conditioner. Beautifully fragrant thanks to an aromatic blend of ripe peach, honey-inspired accord, lavender and vanilla, this bestselling duo by California-based vegan brand Pureology is specially formulated for damaged or ‘micro scarred’ hair.
A quartet of natural antioxidant Astaxanthin, keravis, ceramide, and arginine work to nourish and fortify individual strands against environmental damage, improving shine, texture and elasticity. After a long day at the beach, leave in Pureology’s regenerative Strength Cure Superfood Treatment for 2-5 minutes as an extra treat. Packed with olive oil and antioxidant-rich goji berry extract, it targets breakage and leaves hair silky smooth.
Best vegan products for curly hair
Aveda Be Curly Shampoo and Conditioner
While Aveda isn't a vegan certified brand, that vast majority of its products contain no animal-derived ingredients. Featured as one of Peta's top-choice vegan shampoos and conditioners, the Be Curly duo targets frizz with organic wheat protein and smoothing aloe to enhance and define even the unruliest curls.
How? The aloe blend expands when hair is wet and retracts as the hair dries, meaning that stray hair shafts spring back, resulting in silkier and more pronounced curls. For sea and salt-damaged holiday hair, supplement with the Be Curly Intensive Detangling Masque. Enriched with organic babassu oil, it swiftly moisturises hair and soothes sun-sore scalps.
