The Best Vegan Haircare Products by Indian Brands to Explore this Earth Day

On this World Earth Day, try out these vegan hair products that are sure to boost your overall hair and scalp health

First things first, adopting clean beauty is definitely the way to go if we truly care about sustainability and love our planet. Using products that are made using only natural, plant-based (vegan), and safe ingredients is imperative today than ever before, as preserving our planet is of utmost importance now as compared to any other time in history. Vegan beauty products are more eco-friendly, as they have a lesser carbon footprint and so are locally made products, which have been created using locally sourced ingredients and have not been shipped from countries far and wide.

The haircare industry too is now moving towards creating products that consist of only plant-based ingredients, developing improved biodegradable formulas, and refraining from using any animal-derived ingredients like milk, cysteine, shellac, wax, lanolin, and honey, which were previously popular, as a measure to conserve the natural resources and promote kindness towards animals. So, here are some of the finest vegan haircare offerings by our very own Indian beauty brands, which will help you nourish and pamper your mane efficiently without feeling guilty about burdening the planet much.
