Hair care is one of the four pillars of the cosmetic industry. Whilst the majority of the well known and widely available hair care brands are not always cruelty free, there are plenty of alternative, sustainable and most importantly cruelty free hair care brands and products to choose from.

There is also something unique about this category. Many independent hair stylists and colourists with established names in the industry launch their eponymous lines. These lines are usually ethical, niche, often vegan and from the start they already have a circle of trusting customers.

With such a vast variety of hair care products we split the brands info four smaller categories. The majority of the brands on the list focus on one or two categories of products and perfect them but a few brand offer the entire hair care range.

Hair care categories

  • Cleanse & condition
  • Colour
  • Style
  • Treat
