New vegan-friendly haircare in Tesco!

New vegan-friendly haircare in Tesco! Posted on 20/04/20182 Comments
Ahoy, hello! My name is Jenny. I am a thirty-something human female from Manchester in the north of England. I enjoy rainy days and sad songs, custard donuts and salt & pepper chips and beer, lentil dhal and fried okra, X-Files and Twin Peaks, fierce fat heroines and mental health advocates, dogs and cats and otters and a very special beirdo. To paraphrase Sylvia Plath: "I blog because there is a voice within me that insists on writing lots of ridiculous chuff".

Hello pals!

I am just right now taking time out from a punishingly busy week to tell you about this ace new vegan-friendly hair stuff available in Tesco. Handy!

The super nice folks at Nature’s Dream kindly sent me some of their haircare goodies to try out; the range is organic, not tested on animals, is free of microbeads/parabens/SLS, and has a few options without any animal ingredients too (all except the avocado and honey). I am an absolute sucker for anything that smells of hippy crystal shops in the 1990s and so I put in a request for the pomegranate and patchouli shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask.

Pomegranate & Patchouli Shampoo and hair mask

Smoothness and perfection is a bold claim, ain’t it? I’m not sure my hair ever truly achieves smoothness, never mind perfection. But lately I’ve been having a lot of luck with the rather pricey but also wonderful JĀSÖN range and my hair’s been super shiny and lovely, so it would take a lot to drag me away from my new favourite thing. I tell you what though folks, the Organic Shop shampoo and conditioner are both truly splendid! I mean, for a supermarket offering they are good, but they are also just ruddy lovely. My Lush itch is scratched by the spicy patchouli vibes, and the scent sticks around too. I’m one of those terrible people who washes their hair daily and the pair have kept me going for a good couple of weeks already. Ace!

Both the patchouli shampoo and conditioner are rich and I’d say are best suited to dry or damaged hair. Sometimes I can manage with shampoo only, which is saying a lot for my tangled do!

The hair mask is very very rich and isn’t one for a quick morning shower; this would be ideal for an overnight soak, and/or for particularly dry or damaged hair, for which I am sure it could do wonderful things. My hair is never dry so I’ve been saving this for long soaks in the tub.

It’s super to see options like this appearing on supermarket shelves and I hope that many more follow suit. My only complaint would be that Organic Shop need to get on with vegan trademarking or making their vegan-friendly products as suitable for vegans. Pretty please!

This stuff was sent to me for free but by jove you’d better believe I am being honest in my review!

  1. Am I right in thinking that Tesco has got a lot better for vegan stuff recently? (I don’t have one near me so I don’t pop in often). If so, that is excellent news. Especially if it’s properly marked – I’m not a fan of checking a 72 page list before I go shopping…!

    1. Tesco has a pretty mega vegan range these days; loads of own-brand cheezes and such, which actually really aren’t that bad (if you like the melty kind!)
