Finding organic hair care products that meet the lifestyle and diet requirements of the vegetarian diet, not to mention the vegan diet, can be a challenge at time. Many hair products contain animal by-products or ingredients that are tested on animals even if the final product is not.
Another challenge is finding hair care products that actually work and do what they say they will. One popular website that lists companies that follow strict cruelty free guidelines is the Leaping Bunny site at www.leapingbunny.org. Another popular website to begin the search for cruelty-free hair care products is PETA’s (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) website (www.peta.org ). Both of these websites offer lists of companies that meet product requirements for vegans and vegetarians.
One great aspect of the Leaping Bunny website is that they offer a comprehensive shopping guide for many products that are kind to the earth and kind to animals. Products and companies are listed under numerous categories from personal care to household and animal care products to cosmetics. Each of these broad areas is further broken down into more specific categories such as eye care, dental care, maternity and baby care, and hair care to name a few.
Some of the more well-known hair care companies that offer cruelty free hair care products include Arbonne, The Body Shop, ELON, Herbal Choice Mari, Nature’s Clean, Paul Mitchell and Pureology. Paul Mitchell provides an extensive line of hair care products that meet virtually every need. Everything from shampoos, conditioners and styling products are made with the goal of creating healthy and vibrant hair without damaging the environment or hurting animals.
