Nowadays you can find vegan products at most places. Vegan food is beginning to be more popular than ever before, but vegan hair care is also one thing to set in mind.
Vegan products usually contain natural ingredients. This means that if you choose a vegan hair product it will still give your hair the best benefits, and in the same way, make a better choice for the planet.
What does a Vegan Hair product mean?
If a product is vegan, you will be sure that the product doesn’t test on animals or includes ingredients from animals.
Normally, you can find out if your hair product is vegan by looking at the packaging. Vegan products have a certified vegan logo.
What does Cruelty-free mean?
There are a lot of products that are cruelty-free, which means that they are not tested on animals. But the product can still include ingredients that are not vegan. Ingredients that are not vegan and very common in hair products are beeswax, lanolin, and keratin.
Keratin is known for giving glossy hair by smoothing down the cells that overlap to form your hair strands. Keratin is found in nails, hair, hooves, and horns. This means that is not a vegan ingredient.
There is a way to make plant-based keratin, but to make sure – you need to see if the product is vegan.
If you want a vegan alternative, you should look for vegetable protein, soy protein, or wheat protein.
Wheat Hydrolyzed Protein
It is becoming more popular to include hydrolyzed proteins from rice or wheat in hair products. When the protein is hydrolyzed – it means that the protein has been broken into smaller fragments. The hydrolyzed protein got lower molecular weight and size, which makes it easier to be absorbed into the hair shaft.
Wheat Hydrolyzed protein helps to restore the lost protein in the hair shaft, it also has properties that strengthen your hair and prevent breakage – You can find Wheat Hydrolyzed Protein in FUKT Hydrate Shampoo, HÖJD Volume Shampoo, and HÖJD Volume Conditioner.
