Today I’m back with another cruelty-free product review! A little while ago, I gave the Lavender Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner from Green Beaver a try. I believe this was the first time I’d tried anything from Green Beaver and I was excited to try them!
“This all-natural lavender infused shampoo gently cleanses and volumizes fine hair while nourishing and restoring balance. Long known for its ability to improve the appearance of hair and skin, lavender oil works its fragrant magic to enhance the natural beauty of your hair. Redeveloped from our previous Lavender Rosemary Shampoo, this new formula will surly put the bounce back into your hair, naturally!”

Availability: The Lavender Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner can be found on Green Beaver’s website (shampoo, conditioner) and also on well.ca (shampoo, conditioner). I’ve also seen them in various Winners locations.
Pros: Cruelty-free, vegan, biodegradable, and free of alcohol, artificial fragrance, gluten, parabens, phenoxyethanol, phthalates, SLS, synthetic detergents, soy, and triclosan.
Cons: Drying, watery conditioner, hair didn’t feel clean as long.
My Thoughts: I was not a fan of either the shampoo or conditioner. I found that my hair was left feeling dry. I also felt that my hair didn’t feel as clean as long. This could be partly related to the fact that this shampoo and conditioner only contain natural ingredients, but I’ve used quite a few “natural” shampoos and conditioners before, and most of them have worked really well. In addition, I found the conditioner to be a little watery, and I didn’t feel that my hair was any more voluminous after using these products. On the more positive side, I really liked the lavender scent; I found it to be quite relaxing! Also, I do love the fact that Green Beaver is a Canadian brand, that sells cruelty-free, vegan, and natural products including toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo and conditioner, sunscreen, lotion, soap, and lip balm. The Lavender Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner was just not for me.
