I sit here typing this with a head full of big curls that have been growing in volume and health like no tomorrow. As some of you may know, I’ve been transitioning into the cruelty-free beauty world–including haircare, makeup and skincare. The transition has been a process, and still is, but I am so very proud of making this change. It is an educational journey that truly makes you more self-aware about the products + brands you are purchasing and supporting.
Throughout my search for cruelty-free products that my skin and hair love I have discovered brands that put so much care into what they create and how it impacts the world. My cruelty-free collection has continued to grow with these additions and I am so excited to share them with you! Today’s products are all curly hair focused (shout out to my curly haired gals) and know how to treat these sensitive, and often mind of its own locks. Whether you’re on the search for new curly hair brands or your curls need or a little extra lovin’ these products may just be what you need.
Not Your Mother’s Coconut Milk & African Marula Tree Oil Shampoo and Conditioner
I have been using this duo for almost 2 months now. They have quickly become a part of my weekly curly hair routine as they nourish, clean and make my curls bounce beautifully. I purchased this pair on sale in Walgreens for about $15 together. The shampoo formula doesn’t leave my curls dry or lacking in shape and the conditioner is so creamy and not overbearing. Each time I use this duo my curls are left feeling smooth, soft and controlled.
DevaCurl No Poo
When my curls need a deep cleaning I reach for this product by DevaCurl. My curls always feel like they are reaching their highest potential whenever I use this brand. This shampoo doesn’t disappoint. It contains peppermint oil, balm mint and chamomile–sounds like a dream, right? I can feel how clean my curls are getting immediately when in use. Plus, it doesn’t leave my hair feeling stripped or fried afterwards. I picked this product up at Harmon’s for 50% off ~cha-ching~
Jāsön Dandruff Relief Treatment Shampoo
My scalp can often get very dry, especially in the colder months. To prevent me from scratching or flakes, I wanted to find a cruelty-free shampoo that focused on dandruff relief. One that wasn’t harsh much like Head & Shoulders. I stumbled upon Jāsön when searching on crueltyfreekitty.com and purchased it on Amazon after reading all of its raving reviews. I was so excited to receive this in the mail with all the positivity around it, and it definitely lived up to its hype! The formula has a minty feeling + smell to it when I work it into my scalp. Its the perfect cleanser for any dandruff or scalp itchiness that I may be experiencing, and always leave my hair feeling refreshed.
Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Shampoo
When I want to switch up my haircare routine I opt for Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Shampoo instead of the Not Your Mother’s shampoo. I call it tea for your hair as it instantly makes me feel calm when I lather it into my locks. Made with aloe leaf, calendula flower, rose extract and sweet clover it hydrates my hair and adds tons of shine to it effortlessly. I picked up this baby from Harmon’s for 50% off too!
OGX Quenching Coconut Curls Conditioner and Argan Oil Creamy Hair Butter
My grandma gave me both of these conditioning products from OGX and I swear by them now. When my curls need more moisture and softness I drench them in this, starting with the ends. I leave it in for 10-15 minutes, rinse and am left with soft, luxurious curls that look amazing, especially on wash day.
If you have any questions about the products or recommendations of your own, please let me know! I am always on the lookout for new items to add to my cruelty-free log.
Thank you so much for reading ya’ll! Stay tuned for more cruelty-free beauty posts. xoxo.
Lots of Love, Victoria.
