Vegan Haircare

Cruelty-free choices for every day
down arrow

Many shampoos, conditioners and styling products can contain anything from eggs and honey to lanolin, milk or beeswax.

This can make finding truly vegan, cruelty-free haircare something of a challenge. So if you’re looking to go completely animal product-free, we’ve rounded up a list of our favorite animal-friendly options.

Shampoos and conditioners

For years, our inventors worked on a conditioner formula that was both vegan and effective, and the result was Veganese. Instead of using lanolin (a waxy substance made from sheep’s wool), we replaced it with seaweed for a wonderfully softening effect on the hair. And since its creation, we’ve added Jungle, Big Solid Conditioner, as well as Happy Happy Joy Joy to our list of vegan options. When it comes to shampoo, you’ll find that most of ours are vegan, including our shampoo bars . No matter what your hair situation is, just look for the V (for vegan) symbol and pick the one that’ll work best for your locks. And if you have curly or dry hair that prefers a more moisturizing wash, check out Avocado Co-wash, which cleanses and conditions in just one step with fresh avocado and cocoa butter.

Styling

It’s not just shampoos and conditioners that may contain animal by-products, but many hair gels have them, too. Often made with beeswax and lanolin, our inventors tried loads of different incarnations before arriving at just the right formula. Dirty Styling Cream is brilliant for a sleek hold, while Sea Spray gives you textured, beachy waves with a little carrageenan extract, sea water and citrusy grapefruit oil.

Treatments

Taking care of your hair doesn’t have to be a challenge either. Our vegan haircare treatments will help keep those locks and your scalp in tip-top shape. From leave-in moisturizer R&B which tames frizz, to our range of hot oil hair treatments like New, Damaged or Marilyn—each of which target a different hair need. And if coloring your hair is your thing, our cruelty-free henna hair dyes will give you the rich color you want. Each color is blended with henna, essential oils and deeply conditioning cocoa butter to keep tresses looking and feeling fabulous.

Not just haircare

We’re enormously proud of all the vegan products we’ve created, and our commitment to creating cruelty-free cosmetics that have never been tested on animals extends to all of our products. Everything we make is vegetarian, but next time you’re searching for something vegan, just look for the V symbol. It can be found on about 80 percent of Lush products from bath and shower to skin, hair and makeup!

If you have more questions about our haircare, vegan products or stance on animal cruelty, visit your local Lush store or give us a call at 1-888-733-5874.
