Opting for vegan alternatives doesn’t just stop at food, with more and more consumers making a conscious effort to choose plant-based products within other areas of their life than ever before. So, why convert to a vegan haircare routine?
Free from harsh chemicals such as sulphates and parabens which strip moisture from the hair and scalp, leaving it dry and irritated, 100% vegan haircare lines contain natural, plant-based ingredients that can actually reverse hair damage and help maintain a healthy scalp, preventing problems like dry, brittle hair and dandruff, while nourishing your locks and stimulating hair growth.
If you’re curious about vegan haircare but unsure where to start, online haircare experts Luxurious Look have put together their top five vegan products that can be incorporated into any routine:
Olaplex No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo
A good haircare routine starts with a quality shampoo, and Olaplex leads the way with their patented Bond Maintenance collection. The gentle formula is paraben, sulphate and phthalate-free, and designed to deeply nourish and repair damaged, unmanageable hair. Salon-quality, vegan ingredients help restore and maintain hair bonds, healing each strand from the inside out and eliminating split ends, flyaways and the dreaded frizz. The result is healthy, hydrated hair which is noticeably softer and shinier.
Pureology Hydration Boost For Coloured Hair
Born from the philosophy of creating the best 100% vegan haircare products for coloured hair, Pureology uses natural ingredients like corn, coconut and sugar to gently cleanse hair without compromising your colour. Their Hydration Boost Bundle is formulated with a thirst-quenching mix of jojoba, green tea and sage to replenish hair, leaving it silky soft, while Advanced Hydrating Micro-Emulsion Technology hydrates and revitalises dry and damaged strands, all while leaving your colour salon-fresh!
Moo & Yoo Sea Salt Spray
For effortless, beachy curls this summer, look no further than Moo & Yoo’s Sea Salt Spray. Made with natural, sustainable ingredients including the brand’s signature Marula Oil to lock in moisture and maintain a happy scalp, it’s a must-have for a textured, tousled look. Simply spritz onto damp hair from the roots to the tips, twisting and tousling the hair to create soft, beachy waves with none of the hassle.
Monpure Nourish & Stimulate Scalp Mask
Monpure understands that healthy hair begins with a healthy scalp. That’s why this dermatologically tested Scalp Mask works by feeding hair follicles and skin cells with essential vitamins and nutrients, including soothing aloe vera and vitamin-rich camellia tea oil. The fluffy, light formula improves scalp health, relieving redness, itchiness and sun damage, allowing locks to grow stronger and healthier with each use. To use, apply to damp hair, massaging through from roots to tips, leave in for 15 minutes, then rinse. Use 1-2 times a week for best results and to give your scalp an invigorating treat!

The ‘My Hair My Canvas’ collection is inspired by everyday acts of self-care and self-kindness, providing fun and effortless ways to create unique looks. Their Shine Enhancing Foam is designed to give radiance to heat or air-dried styles, and is formulated from all-natural vegan ingredients, including vegan botanical caviar, white charcoal and prickly pear oil. Simply spread evenly from mid-lengths to ends of the hair to restore moisture, then style as normal to achieve gorgeous, silky smooth locks.
