20 Oct 3 plant-based drugstore haircare brands for Summer
It’s starting to get warmer and we’ve been on the hunt for a brand new, lighter (yet still nourishing) range of shampoo and conditioner. The thick, moisture-rich products we’ve been using in Winter, seem to be weighing our hair down a little this Summer. We’ve found a few drugstore brands that are plant-based, feel-good, and environmentally friendly. These are some of the ranges that are bringing us pure bliss right now – grab them and try these ranges out for yourself.
Not only does this product look high end and gorgeous in your shower, but it’s also a feel-good brand.

Nature Box harnesses the vitamins and antioxidants sourced from 100% cold-pressed fruit and nut oils. Cold pressing is the most efficient extraction process, allowing the oil’s essential nutrients to be entirely preserved to deliver a nutritional punch to the hair and skin. This brand only uses sustainably cultivated raw materials, and they support small farmers. Furthermore, 25% of Nature Box packaging is made from recycled plastic.
Nature Box’s four product lines all contain cold-pressed oils extracted from Avocado, Coconut, Apricot, and Almond. These products are neither refined nor processed, meaning all their valuable vitamins in the oils, such as A, B, C, D, and E, as well as antioxidants and healthy fatty acids, are not lost.
