How to Choose a Vegan Shampoo - Buying Guide

Maybe you don't like what you see on our list, or maybe you're wondering how we chose our products. Here are some guidelines that we followed, and you can do the same on your own search in finding the right vegan shampoo for your hair care needs. 

Look for Official Vegan Certification

There's an easy and visual way to tell whether a shampoo is truly vegan or not: a certification mark. There are a number of them, but the products we've listed have all been certified by either the Vegan Awareness Foundation, Leaping Bunny, and more. If you don't see a logo on the bottle, scan the ingredients or back label to see if you can find the phrase "100 percent vegan."


Admittedly, many organizations can certify vegan products based on different standards; but rest assured that many of these organizations have very high standards, even down to the kind of equipment used to produce the shampoos.


For example, the Certified Vegan Logo means that the product does not contain animal products or byproducts, now was it tested on animals. Vegans can look for this mark instead of having to go through the ingredients list. 

Find a Shampoo That Suits Your Hair Condition

Without all of the typical moisturizers and nourishing ingredients added to non-vegan shampoos, it can be tough to tell what's going to work for your specific hair condition whether it be oily, dry, or damaged. That's why we've broken it down for you.

Nourishing Oils for Dry, Frizzy, or Damaged Hair

Nourishing Oils for Dry, Frizzy, or Damaged Hair

The keyword in finding a shampoo for your dry, frizzy, or damaged hair is "oils." Think coconut, avocado, olive, or argan oils. These all come packed with healthy fatty acids that will nourish your hair and lock in moisture. If you suffer from an itchy scalp, products with aloe or oatmeal included may be soothing.


Essential oils that come from plants also have moisturizing effects on the hair and scalp for those with dry hair. A few examples include lavender, tea tree, rosemary, and eucalyptus. You can look for shampoo infused with these ingredients for that extra soothing effect.

For hair that is dry, shampoo less frequently. Shampoos are meant to strip some oils from the hair to clean the shaft and the scalp. 


Argan oil is very hydrating and can seal up the hair shaft, which decreases frizz. It adds hydration without weighing down the hair. Be sure to rinse your shampoo out well to prevent buildup of the product.

Tea Tree Oil and Apple Cider Vinegar for Oily Hair

Tea Tree Oil and Apple Cider Vinegar for Oily Hair

Give shampoos with apple cider vinegar a try because the ingredient is said to balance your hair and scalp health with its acidic properties. Furthermore, apple cider vinegar has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which limit bacteria growth on the scalp. 


Tea tree oil (in small doses), lemon peel extract, and yucca cactus are other natural ingredients you can look out for when choosing a shampoo for oily hair. They help balance your scalp's pH levels, thus minimizing sebum creation.

Tea tree oil is very helpful if you have dandruff or a scaly, itchy, or red scalp. You may notice an immediate relief of itch after using tea tree oil. Apple cider vinegar can be harsh for the hair, so I only recommend doing an apple cider vinegar rinse once a week if you have oily hair. Be sure not to let apple cider vinegar on facial skin since it can cause a chemical burn.

Avoid Sulfates if You Have Color-Treated Hair

Avoid Sulfates if You Have Color-Treated Hair

If you have color-treated hair, you know that shampoos can do more harm than good if you're not careful. The dyes and bleach used to color the hair could leave it extra weak, thus requiring extra attention and care. 


With vegan shampoos, it's important to look for shampoos without sulfates. Plant-based ingredients like green tea also seem to effectively keep color from fading quickly without drying out your hair's natural oils. 

Dr. Lauren Levy
Board Certified Dermatologist
Dr. Lauren Levy

I generally recommend avoiding sulfates in shampoos if you have sensitive skin. Sulfates can cause hives or dermatitis in people prone to these conditions. Fewer additives in products are generally better. Additionally, sulfates can strip color, so avoid sulfates for color-treated hair.

Match the Formula With Your Hair Type

Match the Formula With Your Hair Type

In addition to your hair condition, you need to match the shampoo with your hair type, whether thick or fine and curly or coily. You can go for vegan shampoos infused with almond or coconut oils to help add volume and body to fine hair types. 


Meanwhile, curly or coily hair needs gentle cleansing with extra taming properties. Oils like avocado, coconut, and argan, plus shea butter, could help keep your hair frizz-free and manageable while ensuring it's properly moisturized. 


For thorough cleansing of thick hair, shampoo formulas infused with antioxidants and floral or citrus oils or scents keep your hair looking, feeling, and smelling clean and fresh all day. 

Dr. Lauren Levy
Board Certified Dermatologist
Dr. Lauren Levy

When using shampoo, I recommend focusing on getting the product on the scalp and top part of the hair. This is where shampoo works best to clean the scalp of oil and build up. Overusing shampoos can dry out hair, so avoiding drenching the shaft in product can help prevent this from occurring.

Check the Ingredients to Avoid Irritants

Check the Ingredients to Avoid Irritants

Vegan shampoos may contain fewer additives or harmful ingredients, but it's still possible for them to be irritating depending on the condition of your hair, scalp, or allergies. 


Anything that contains sulfates like sodium laureth sulfate should be discounted from your list unless you're willing to risk it. This could cause irritation and has been linked to hair loss. If you have a sensitive or broken scalp (or allergies), you may want to avoid things like added fragrances that could irritate your sensitive skin. 


Many vegan shampoo brands online have plenty of customer reviews of every hair type that can attest to a shampoo's potential irritants, so read thoroughly before buying!

Dr. Lauren Levy
Board Certified Dermatologist
Dr. Lauren Levy

If you have a history of contact dermatitis or eczema, ask your dermatologist for a list of products that are safe to use. Even if a product is vegan, it still may have allergens or irritants. All-natural does not mean allergen- or additive-free. Your dermatologist has access to lists of specific allergen-free products if you have a known reaction to certain ingredients.

Frequently Asked Questions

In addition to reviewing and commenting on our buying guide, Dr. Levy also took the time to answer some commonly asked questions about vegan shampoos.

Is vegan shampoo good for hair?

Dr. Levy answers, "Vegan shampoos are good for hair, as long as they contain ingredients that both clean and nourish the scalp and hair follicle. Look for ingredients like argan oil or jojoba oil if you have dry or brittle hair. For oily hair, look for kaolin, which can help absorb oils from the hair."

What are some non-vegan shampoo ingredients?

"Many keratin and collagen products are animal-derived, which is why they may not be included in vegan shampoos," Dr. Levy explains. "Vegan shampoos contain ingredients that are not derived from animals. This means that lots of natural oils are used. Common ingredients include kaolin clays, jojoba oil, and argan oil."
