As a vegan, one of my greatest struggles has been finding beauty products that are cruelty-free and that do not contain any animal products. Even after finding my beloved Nature’s Gate shampoo, after using this product for several months, my hair started to become increasingly oily and tired of the same-old, same-old. As I mentioned in a previous post about vegan hair care, My Vegan Hair Care Routine, I have had some bad experiences with vegan shampoo, which not only resulted in extremely oily roots but very dry ends, hair-loss, and breakage. The Nature’s Gate Shampoo was a happy beginning of my vegan hair care journey, but as maintaining my hair’s Ph balance requires me to change shampoo every once in a while, it was time to shake things up.
That’s when I found the brand Love Beauty and Planet. This brand seeks to create products that are 100% vegan, don’t contain nasty chemicals, and are good for both you and the planet. Even if you don’t care about these things, the products work and smell great. Love Beauty and Planet products can be easily found locally in the U.S. as well. I personally discovered this brand at Sam’s Club; I often browse through their shampoo and conditioner section and have no luck finding any vegan products, but recently, I found an entire display dedicated to Love Beauty and Planet’s shampoos and conditions! In addition to this, Love Beauty and Planet offers other hair care products, from hair oil to dry shampoo, as well as other body products, such as body washes, scrubs, and detox mists. These items can ordered from Amazon, Walmart, Target, and more.
I’m currently using the Argon Oil and Lavender Shampoo in conjunction with the Argon Oil and Lavender Conditioner. I was initially drawn to this particular product because I love anything and everything lavender, as well as because my dry hair often benefits from using Argon oil. Despite what you may think, as it contains an oil, this shampoo and conditioner have made my hair less oily. With the Nature’s Gate shampoo and conditioner, I had to wash my hair in the morning because my hair would get too greasy during the night, but with this new shampoo and conditioner, I can wash my hair the night before and wake up with little oil in my hair. In fact, I also like to workout in the mornings, and my hair is only minimally greasy after these workouts as well.
I look forward to continue using these products and to trying more in the future! Have you tried using any products by Love Beauty and Planet? Are there other brands you like even better? I look forward to reading your comments and chatting with you about vegan hair care.
