Vegan Natural Hair Companies
Vegan – A person who does not eat or use animal products.
I know…it seems like everyone is vegan except you right? Everywhere you look there are vegan recipes, vegan blogs, and vegan social media pages. For health reasons, many have turned to living a primarily vegan lifestyle to better their quality of life. Some people are still quite reluctant to give up cheesy scrambled eggs for breakfast, juicy chicken sandwiches for lunch, or meaty steaks for dinner. If you don’t want to dive into the vegan lifestyle than you can dip your toes in by trying some natural hair care lines that wave the vegan flag proudly when formulating their products for the natural hair community.

Obviously healthy hair is not solely based on the products you place on your hair. Plenty of sleep, plenty of water, and low amounts of stress and manipulation on the hair are essential. However, if you are striving to use only the best and the healthiest ingredients available than researching these companies listed and making your own educated purchases is a great start to healthy hair.
