I do have a Trader Joe's not far from me. I love the smell of Tea Tree Oil so I will definitely check this out. Thanks!

I second @HarveyKlinger's vinegar suggestion. Honey is another good alternative to shampoo. It doesn't always rinse very easily, but if you take hot showers, it'll get very thin and leave a coating on your hair. Supposedly, it's good for your hair and scalp.

Thanks, I'll check it out and see what amount is recommended, etc.

This is going to sound stupid but google "No poo". For shampoo you use water with baking soda and for conditioner you use water with apple cider vinegar.

Yes it works. No you won't stink like vinegar.

Thanks! I have heard of that but I'm wary because I've read that using the apple cider vinegar so often can really damage your hair. I'll look into it again though.

That acts as the conditioner so technically you could use any conditioner. Part of the "no poo" is that you're supposed to ween yourself off of washing your hair so much. Supposedly after you do it you can go a long time without your hair getting greasy.

I think it's like 1 Tbsp for 8 ounces of water (so it's not much) but check to be sure. And Apple Cider Vinegar is pretty healthy for your body for lots of things.

Yeah, I wouldn't either... Vinegar is an acid, so won't it bleach your hair? Maybe diluted in water isn't so bad. I've heard it recommended for dandruff, but not for regular use.

I wasn't even aware there was animal cruelty involved. Am I safe to assume Head and Shoulder engages in this practices?

Yes, unfortunately Head & Shoulders tests on animals. See the Procter & Gamble section here.

God dammit, you just ruined my favourite shampoo, but for the good reasons so, thank you.

I've been buying Live Clean stuff for a while now. Does the job and lots of different versions. You shouldn't have a problem finding it anywhere.

There's probably lots of good alternatives but this stuff is cheap. Like the same price as herbal essentials and stuff like that.

I used to use OGX products - check out their faqs here: https://www.ogxbeauty.com/faqs/

It says they are cruelty free. I often bought this from Target, and I believe they have a variety from which you can choose to suit your needs:

I checked out the FAQs and love what I see. I'll try this and the stuff @savarem recommended. Thank you!

I use the body shop rain forest shampoo, but its a no-poo/low-poo which means it doesn't contain sulfates and won't wash out silicone. So if you use any hair products with silicone, conditioner has to be silicone free as well, you will have to switch those out.

If you read my guide to healthy hair in the sidebar it goes more indept on sulfate free shampoo and what ingredients you need to avoid.

Otherwise I would recommend using bar soap from someone who makes vegan soap, usually many sellers on etsy have shampoo soaps. Bar soap only contains fat/oil and lye in its most basic form, what is usually added is scent/herbs/clays. Thing is you need to thoroughly wet your hair and actually make an effort to lather it up, which traditional shampoo(the sulfate makes the lather) does much more easily.
