As you read this list of my Top Ten Cruelty-Free Shampoos, bear in mind that I dye my hair on a regular basis, so I have focused on some colour protect shampoos. Currently my hair is blue, and has been for months. That may be irrelevant, but I just had to tell you, because I lurve mah blue hair!

This list is in no particular order, though I have marked what I believe to be the top two of the list.

1. Davroe - one of the top two of the list.

I have rated Davroe based on its reasonable prices and, more importantly, the end result. My hair simply loves Davroe. The conditioner is nourishing, and feels like a treatment.

As my hair is quite damaged from lighteners, I was absolutely stunned to find that my hair, after it dried, was smooth and had no dry or brittle strands.

Cruelty-free options: Davroe products are all 100% cruelty-free! Yay!
Personal favourite: Colour Protect Shampoo. Deliciously scented and leaves hair feeling smooth and looking gorgeous.
RRP $8.50


2. Tints of Nature

Cruelty-free options: Tints of Nature Shampoo
Personal favourite: Tints of Nature Shampoo. Contains almond, sunflower and jojoba oil. Not all Tints of Nature products are cruelty-free. Always check the labels.
RRP $22

3. De Lorenzo

Cruelty-free options: De Lorenzo products are all 100% cruelty-free! Yay!
Personal favourite: Instant Rejuven8 Shampoo. Contains rice proteins, bilberry and cucumber.
RRP $23.95

4. Giovanni

Cruelty-free options: Giovanni products are all 100% cruelty-free! Yay!
Personal favourite: Tea Tree Triple Treat Invigorating Shampoo. This shampoo gives a nice tingling sensation when being used, which is just so lovely.
RRP $18

5. La Riche Directions - this brand also makes the top two. In regards to colour protection, Directions comes in at number one, but comes second to Davroe in terms of the end result: smooth, sleek, and pretty!

Cruelty-free options: Colour Protecting Shampoo, Colour Protecting Conditioner, Pre Colour Shampoo
Personal favourite: Colour Protecting Shampoo
La Riche Directions also sells lots of gorgeous hair dyes.
RRP $17.95

6. David Babaii

Cruelty-free options: David Babaii products are all 100% cruelty-free! Yay!
Personal favourite: Absolute Hydration Shampoo. Contains moringa and jojoba oil.
RRP $19.95

Surprise contender: L'Oreal
Although L'Oreal doesn't make the list, I wanted to share information about their new cruelty-free ranges.

Please stop shaking your fists at me! Just hear me out first! L’Oreal has just released new ranges of shampoos, conditioners, and other hair treatments, which are marked as vegan and cruelty-free, ie no animal testing. I wanted to add L’Oreal to the list simply to inform people that there is some progress! It’s fantastic, though it’s completely understandable if you still don’t wish to buy from L’Oreal. They still have animal testing conducted for their other products. So whether you still consider this a win, as part of L’Oreal’s ‘openness to change,’ or not, I just wanted to let my readers know, in case you’d like to support L’Oreal’s new cruelty-free ranges. Who knows, the greater the demand might mean bigger change for this company. Just remember that every purchase you make is a vote for more cruelty-free alternatives.
If you are interested, have a look for the EverPure and EverStrong ranges at your local supermarkets.

...and back to the list.

So the men don’t feel left out, though, why you lovely men can’t use the aforementioned brands is beyond me, I have included one especially for you. There's even a Gaia Made for Men Overnight Bag! and I am genuinely jealous about that too.
All Gaia products are cruelty-free! Yay!

Thank you :) I needed to pick up something mainstream and the l'oreal was in stock. Always will where I can buy all products etc from those who set out from the get go as vegan / ethical / eco. However there are odd occasions when your only choice is mainstream and it's important to encourage the large corporates to do the right thing. It didn't have the bunny logo though so would be good for them to get involved in knowledgable labelling. Thanks again :) Will send a request to their services dept.

Thanks for the article... It is surprising to know how many products we use are packed with dangerous chemicals
Love your articles. Surprises me too about L'Oreal & don't know if I'll support them, however there are so many more cruelty free alternatives out there than a few years ago. Thank you for recommending some brands I had never personally heard of before. (-:
