What does it mean to be a vegan to you? You could be an environmental vegan, an ethical vegan, a dietary vegan, or even a beauty vegan. Generally, being vegan means abstaining from the use of animal-related products for a variety of reasons. You could also think of vegan as anything plant-based. Veganism can be a practice as well as a lifestyle.
So what is vegan shampoo? Vegan shampoo follows the same guidelines, meaning a shampoo is considered vegan if it does not contain any ingredients derived from animals and no animal testing was done in relation to its production.
Today I’m going to review the Love Beauty & Planet Shampoo Blooming Colour. It was a gift by one of my ex colleagues and I didn’t know anything about vegan shampoo until I found this brand newly introduced by Unilever. So, it was my first time trying out this this shampoo.
To be honest, it did wonders on my colored and permed hair with its infused Amazonian murumuru butter! It helped to moisturize my scalp and gave me healthy and glossy looking hair. Murumuru butter is found in the nuts of murumuru palm tree and it is much like coconut oil. I love the freshness of the floral rose petal fragrance that delivers an intensely feminine and refreshing ambiance during shower time. I’m a rose lover, literally in love with everything rose!
The texture of the shampoo was creamy, it lathered up well and left hair shiny and manageable. That clean feeling lasted for a while and sometimes it is OK for me to go for more than a day without washing my hair.
Overall, after a few washes with LBP Blooming Colour, I noticed that my hair was much more softer than before, even if i dont use any hair conditioner that often, my hair doesn’t get tangled up in a mess anymore. And the best part is it’s free from paraben and silicones! If you don’t know how silicones actually damages our hair, you should google and find out the answer and it will freak you out! The cons of this shampoo probably is their size, not travel friendly. Last but not least, I totally love the whole idea of how the creator behind this brand did a very good job with their ingredients that are cruelty-free and passionate about recyclable packaging by using only recycled materials.
Lets do something for our mother nature and spread a little love by recycling the bottles and make our beaches a little greener and clean of ocean-bound plastic.
