How to Choose the Best Cruelty-Free and Vegan Brands in the UK


Have you ever wondered how to buy vegan and cruelty-free skincare, beauty and hair products? Do you want products from brands that are kind to animals and great for the planet? In this blog, we list down how you can buy the best vegan, cruelty-free skincare in the UK, as well as hair and beauty products. Whether you are a dedicated vegan, just curious about plant-based beauty, or a flexitarian, the following tips and recommendations will help you shop smarter and greener. 

What to Look for When Buying Cruelty-Free Beauty Products 

Cruelty-free beauty products means all products that have not been tested on animals at any stage of their production. This holds true for the brand you are buying from as well as third parties that may have collaborated with the brand. As this is highly unethical and unnecessary too since there are now so many alternative methods of testing products and making them safe and reliable. 

However, cruelty-free and vegan are not entirely the same, as some cruelty-free products may contain animal-derived products such as beeswax. honey, lanolin or carmina. To make sure you’re buying a 100% vegan beauty product in the UK, always look for the certifications and labels from the following authorities: 

  • The Leaping Bunny logo
    This is the most recognised and trusted cruelty-free certification in the world, administered by Cruelty-Free International. It guarantees that no animal testing has been done on the finished product or any of its ingredients, by the brand or its suppliers, anywhere in the world. 
  • The Vegan Society logo

This is the oldest and most respected vegan certification in the UK. It ensures that no animal ingredients or by-products are used in the product or its manufacturing process and that no animal testing has been done by the brand or its suppliers. 

  • The PETA logo

This widely recognised cruelty-free and vegan certification is issued by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. It verifies that no animal testing has been done on the product or its ingredients by the brand or its suppliers and that no animal-derived ingredients are used. 

Additionally, you may visit the brand’s website to check out its official stance on animal testing. Almost all brands that are vegan or cruelty-free, or both have dedicated web pages to show their commitment. If you cannot find a clear stance on animal testing or being vegan, it is safer to avoid that brand altogether. 

Tips on Buying Cruelty-Free Hair Products 

For hair care, you may think that it is hard to find vegan and cruelty-free products, but that is not true at all. There are now numerous brands that offer high-quality hair products that are free from all kinds of animal products, and these are not tested on animals either. Here’s how you can find the best vegan and cruelty-free hair products that are suitable for your hair type: 

  • Check the ingredients

Avoid hair products that contain biotin, silk amino acids, collagen, elastin, or keratin. All of these are usually derived from animals. Instead, look for plant-based or synthetic alternatives that give you the same nourishment and strengthen your hair without harming any living soul. 

  • Shop online for vegan, cruelty-free hair products

One of the easiest and most convenient ways to find vegan and cruelty-free hair products is to do a simple search on the internet. Sometimes you will end up finding brands that only sell vegan and cruelty-free products. You can also visit online beauty stores such as Salon Trusted. Just filter your search by hair type, product type, and select ‘vegan’ and ‘cruelty-free’.

  • Ask your local salons

The next time you go to your local salon, ask them to use vegan and cruelty-free products on you. Ask them where to buy these products. They will be happy to recommend products and may even earn commission through affiliate programs. 

Ingredients to Avoid and Ingredients to Look for 

When buying vegan and cruelty-free products, it’s important to look for products that are free from animal-derived ingredients. 

Some common animal-derived ingredients found in hair products include:

  • Keratin
  • Collagen
  • Beeswax
  • Honey

Instead, look for products that contain plant-based ingredients such as:

  • Coconut oil
  • Argan oil
  • Jojoba oil
  • Shea butter

At-Home Colour Maintenance


If you love experimenting with your hair colour, you know how exciting it can be to try a new shade or technique. But sometimes, things don’t go as planned. Whether your hair colour disastrously turns too dark, light, brassy, or patchy, there will always be a solution to fix the mistake and restore your confidence. 

In this blog we aim to share tips for fixing common hair colouring problems, ways to play with colour in your hair and at-home hair colour maintenance. Also, check out professional hair colour services available at salons in the UK. Plus, we’ll recommend the best products for colour-treated hair from Salon Trusted. Sounds like what you need? Read on.

Hair Colouring Problems and Solutions 

The most common hair colouring problem is getting an entirely different result than what you had expected. Did your hair colour end up too… Here’s how to fix it: 

  • Too dark
    Try washing it with a clarifying shampoo to remove excess pigment. You can also go back to a salon so they are able to use a colour remover product that contains bleach to lighten your hair as they are aware of how far to go before your hair becomes damaged further. A simple solution can be to wait for the colour to fade naturally over time with regular washing to achieve your desired colour. 
  • Too light
    Try toning it with a semi-permanent colour that is darker and warmer than your desired shade. This will add depth and richness to your hair without darkening it. You can also use a colour-depositing shampoo or conditioner to enhance your colour and make it last longer. 
  • Too brassy or orange
    You can use a purple shampoo or conditioner to neutralise the unwanted yellow or orange tones. Purple is the opposite of yellow on the colour wheel, so it cancels out the brassiness and makes your hair look cooler and brighter. You can also use a toner or gloss with a blue or violet base to correct your colour. 

Correcting Hair Colour Mistakes 

Sometimes, fixing your hair colour mistakes at home can be tricky or risky, especially if you have bleached, damaged, or chemically treated hair. In these cases, it’s better to seek professional help from a salon that offers colour correction services. A professional colourist will be able to assess your hair condition and history and recommend the best course of action to achieve your desired result. They will also have access to high-quality products and techniques that can minimise damage and maximise results. 

How to Do At-Home Colour Maintenance 

Here’s how to maintain your colour at home: 

  • Wait 3 days before washing freshly coloured hair for better results 
  • Use a colour-protectant shampoo and conditioner to preserve colour and prevent fade 
  • Shampoo less frequently, and use dry shampoo between washes 
  • Condition regularly and use deep conditioning treatments once a week 
  • Limit exposure to high temperatures, direct sunlight, chlorine, and saltwater 
  • Use colour-depositing shampoos, conditioners, or masks to refresh your colour. 

A Few Professional Colour Services Available at Salons 

Some of the professional colour services that are available at salons in the UK are: 

  • Bleach Blonde 

This involves bleaching your hair to achieve a platinum-blonde shade. It requires careful application and monitoring by a professional. It also requires regular toning and maintenance. 

  • Highlights 

This involves adding lighter strands of colour to your hair to create contrast and dimension. It can be customised to suit your skin tone and personal preference. 

  • Full-Head Colour 

This involves applying one colour all over your hair from roots to ends. It can be done with permanent or semi-permanent colour depending on how long you want it to last. It can be in any shade you choose, from natural to vibrant. 

  • Balayage 

This involves painting colour onto the surface of your hair in a freehand manner for a natural-looking effect. It can be done with any colour. It can also be done with different techniques, such as ombre or sombre, to create different gradients of colour. 

  • Colour Packages 

Some salons offer colour packages that include a combination of services for a discounted price. For example, you might get a balayage, toner, cut, and blow-dry for a fixed rate. These packages save money and get you a complete makeover.

Salon Trusted Recommendations for Colour-Treated Hair 

Here’s the list of recommended products for At-Home Maintenance

The Benefits of Using Professional Products vs Using High Street Products


If you love your hair, you probably spend a lot of time and money on it?

Great hair and good hair days can clearly make a huge difference in how you feel about yourself so we are prepared to part with our cash to get more of those good hair days. It’s a great confidence booster afterall.

Here at Salon Trusted we want to help answer the commonly asked questions ‘am I using the right products for my hair?, ‘am I getting the best value hair products for my money?’

You may be tempted to save a few pounds by buying budget hair products from the high street, thinking that they are all the same. But, in reality, there is a huge difference between high street products and professional hair products. Let’s explore how using professional hair products can benefit you and your hair compared to using high street hair products, and we will look to explain why it is worth investing in salon-quality hair care to get the best results. 

The Value in Using Professional Hair Products 

The value behind using professional hair products is the special science and attention provided to the carefully chosen ingredients. These are products designed by experts who know how different ingredients affect the different types of hair. These high-quality ingredients are chosen and fused together to cater to all kinds of different hair and hair needs. These are tested rigorously and quality assured to give consistent and excellent results with each use.  

On the other hand, high street hair products in the UK are often mass-produced with synthetic and cheap ingredients. These can significantly damage your hair in the long run. And since these high street products are a one-size-fits-all solution, they may not be ideal for two people with different hair types. Sometimes, these products also contain harmful chemicals such as parabens, silicones, and sulphates. These chemicals can strip away your natural oils leaving your hair dry, prone to breaking, and can often leave coloured hair look faded. This also means that in order to get the same result every time, you may have to use more product with each use.

Professional hair products from us at Salon Trusted may seem expensive at first, but they work better and last longer than their high street counterparts. You usually need a small amount of these better quality products to get great results. Sometimes, you may not have to wash your hair as often either. Additionally, you get healthier, more manageable, and shinier hair every time.  Ultimately the professional products are far more trustworthy and do tend to lead to better results trusting you are using the product suited to your hair.

The Pro Products Significantly Protect Your Hair 

Professional hair care products are formulated specifically for a purpose. They are more durable in protecting your hair from any kind of factor that may damage or harm your hair. For example, if your hair is colour-treated, a high street hair product may not be effective in washing and preserving the colour of your hair. Whereas, a professional product will contain ingredients that help in protecting your hair from things like heat styling, UV rays, chlorine, and pollution. Apart from protection, these will also hydrate and nourish your hair and prevent it from being dull or faded. 

You will clearly see that some high street colour care products may claim to do all of this too but they often fail to deliver the desired result. They contain harsh detergents that can easily wash away your colour treatment quickly. Sometimes, they do not even contain any beneficial nutrients to keep your hair nutrient-rich and moisturised. Professional products will keep your hair vibrant, rich and beautiful. 

The Performance is Always Impeccable 

In terms of performance, professional hair products outshine their high street counterparts. These professional salon-grade products are guaranteed to deliver results because they contain high-grade ingredients catered to and customised to your specific hair type and need. In contrast, high street products are a gamble as you may never get the result you desired. 

Professional hair products are designed to address specific hair concerns and goals, such as curl definition, frizz control, volume control, shine enhancement, and much more. Their advanced formulas work well with your hair’s natural texture and structure to the best possible outcome. In contrast, high street hair products are generic and expected to work the same promised magic on any type of hair and desired style. Not only do high street products perform poorly, but they may also result in unwanted build ups or residue. These will make your hair look dull or greasy. 

Buy from Your Local Salons and Support Them 

After understanding why professional hair products are better than high street ones, the next step is to find trusted places to buy these. The answer is very simple; buy them from your local salon. You will end up getting high-quality professional products that suit your hair type and needs. You will also be greatly supporting your local salon through possible affiliate programs. The talented stylists will also offer precise and professional advice on how to use these products and work their magic on your hair. 

Get personalised service, professional advice, a friendly atmosphere, and the best professional products money can buy. Support your local salon and be an active part of the community. Show appreciation for the craft of your local stylists, and help them by buying professional products they can easily guide you on. It’s a win-win situation for everyone. At the end of it, you come out investing wisely and flaunting great healthy hair every time!

Say Goodbye to Dandruff with These Simple Steps

The colder months are definitely among us! The colder weather often makes us more prone to dandruff since the scalp gets drier in these cooler months. 

Let’s face it, dandruff is a nuisance, so let’s help you avoid it. At Salon Trusted, we believe in educating our customers about every issue that the products in our inventory can help to resolve. In this blog, we are highlighting a few tips that can help you say bye-bye to dandruff. Feel free to browse around our website and you may just find something that you are already looking for. 

In the meantime, here are a few tips that can help you get rid of those flaky specks on your shoulders: 

1- Keep Your Scalp Moisturised

Mostly, the primary cause of dandruff, especially in winter or the colder months is the scalp being too dry. This can happen for quite a few reasons. To avoid this, always use a good quality hair oil or scalp moisturiser. Keeping your scalp hydrated will prevent dryness, which in turn will help you avoid getting dandruff. Check out this list of highly effective products for scalps on our website Salon Trusted.

2- Only Use Mild Shampoos 

We have a wide range of shampoos that will help you to avoid dandruff as these will be mild shampoos. Harsh shampoos can easily strip your scalp of its natural oils. This leaves your scalp dry and flaky becoming an ideal environment for dandruff to thrive. Mild shampoos are gentle on your scalp and help you get rid of any kind of irritation. Check this extensive list of shampoos on Salon Trusted to find the right one for your scalp. 

3- Use Warm Water, Not Hot Water

Everyone loves a hot bath or a hot shower during the winter. But, this can lead to dryness of the scalp if the exposure is prolonged. If it is a quick bath or shower, feel free to wash your hair with hot water. Even in that case, we recommend using lukewarm water or even cool water to wash your hair. It will help in keeping your scalp fresh and healthy during the dry winter. As an added benefit, do moisturise your body along with your scalp. 

4- If Already Dry, Don’t Use Heat Styling 

Avoiding or minimising heat styling is a great way to combat dandruff, however as we are all aware, often, there are times when heat styling is necessary for example when you are heading out for a lovely evening or a date night. If it is absolutely necessary to use a blow dryer or a straightener, make sure you use a high-quality one that comes with a range of heat settings. We recommend using our superior Hur products that will ensure your hair is cared for during heat styling. You may also use a heat protectant spray to minimise the damage on your scalp when styling your hair with heat, we have a few fantastic heat protectant sprays on the site here

5- Eat a Balanced Diet 

Any cosmetic application works best when you combine it with a healthy and balanced diet. Take the right amount of vitamins and minerals to keep your body healthy and let your scalp stay healthy as well. A good measure for this is to add nuts, fish and leafy greens to your diet. Be careful of adding nutrients that you may be allergic to. Check the label for the ingredients and make sure you are eating well-rounded healthy meals. 

6- Avoid or Manage Stress Proactively

Stress, if not managed properly, can also be a contributing factor towards dandruff. During the cold and grey months, add pops of colour to your visual experience every day. Watch and enjoy things that make you happy. If you want to relax further, you can always practise techniques such as deep breathing exercises, meditation, and yoga. Do whatever works for you and keep your stress levels normal. The resulting benefits will be visible all around, on your face, on your scalp, your mood and your entire body. 

7- If All Else Fails, Seek Medical Advice

If all of the above tips don’t minimise your dandruff, and it keeps increasing day by day, we suggest you seek medical advice. There may be an underlying cause that needs to be diagnosed and mediated. A professional dermatologist can help you assess what the problem is and how to resolve it. Don’t wait too long to seek help. Most medical issues can be eradicated completely and successfully if caught early on.

Tips To Solve Dry Skin In Winter


How to Get Rid of Dry Skin in Winter

Winter is well and truly here! Some love it, some hate it! It’s fair to say there will be just as many people who love the winter as those people who don’t. Those among us who are not keen on this time year have their reasons, a common reason is that the colder weather affects our skin! it is mostly people who start getting dry skin in the winter that tend to dislike the colder months as the temperatures drop, there is less moisture in the air and the skin reacts to being exposed to colder temperatures. This is something we can easily remedy with a few helpful tips.

At Salon Trusted, we care about you your hair, your skin and your welfare. So with that in mind, to help you out we’ve curated a small list of things that can be used as dry skin solutions for everyone suffering from coarse texture or itchiness, particularly in these colder months. This way you can have glowing skin all year round and don’t need to shy away from the colder temperatures.

Apart from using the best moisturiser for dry skin, here’s what you can do:

1.  Moisturise frequently

First and foremost, use a thick, emollient-rich best moisturiser for dry skin. Use it multiple times a day especially after taking a shower or taking a bath. From our own inventory, we suggest the Foamie Body Butter Stick – Coconut and Cacao. This is a body butter that comes in a new form which is a plastic-free stick. It is perfect for use at home or even when you want to moisturise on the go.

Talking more about the best moisturiser for winter, we present to you the He-Shi Souffle Moisturiser. This is made using the finest and skin-friendly vegan and cruelty-free ingredients. Both of these products will keep your skin hydrated and protect it from damage during chilly drafts.

2.  Use lukewarm water

In the winter, to avoid dry skin, you should avoid extremely hot showers. Yes, they may be soothing and comforting in extreme cold, but these showers can strip your skin of natural oils. If you are already experiencing dry skin, a hot shower will worsen the dryness. So it is better to use warm water instead of hot water (think of the cost savings by turning your shower down a few degrees! In the current climate your skin and your purse strings would be grateful of the change in temperature).

However, if hot showers are your ‘thing’, then just remember to moisturise your body once you are out of the shower. It will help you rejuvenate your skin and let it stay soft and silky.

3.  Gently exfoliate

Using a scrub or an exfoliating tool in the winter may seem cumbersome, but by using these, you can get rid of dead skin cells. Your moisturiser will work wonders with the dead skin cells removed so it is worth doing. Another tip from us is to always ensure that the moisturiser you are using is good for your skin type. There are multiple exfoliating products on our website. You can browse through them to find the perfect one for your skin. Here are a few that you can use, Foamie Exfoliating Shower Bar with Shea Butter and Apricot Seeds, He-Shi Mini Exfoliating Body Wash, Simple THE Gentle Exfoliator, and more in our store.

4.  Humidify your home

Use a humidifier to add moisture to the air as it can help you prevent dry skin. There are numerous portable and room-sized humidifiers that you can find at any electronics store near you. Humidifiers will keep the moisture content in your environment healthy enough for your skin to be naturally hydrated. It will also promote the skin to produce the necessary oil to keep it smooth and naturally moisturised. Portable humidifiers are now commonly used in countries that experience extremely cold winters.

5.  Use gentle products

Another way to stop your skin from drying in the winter is to use gentle products. The number one rule is to avoid any product that contains alcohol or other harsh ingredients. Since the pandemic, we have been accustomed to using hand sanitisers frequently. In case you live in an area where there is a health risk and sanitiser use is imminent, always moisturise your hands if you use it excessively. Another rule of thumb for buying the right products is to buy skincare products that have natural and organic ingredients.

6.  Stay hydrated

During the winters, it is common to stop drinking enough water. By regularly drinking water, you can keep yourself hydrated enough for your skin to produce the necessary oils for protection. If you are too busy to remember to drink water, you can always use an app to remind you or buy a smart water bottle that beeps at intervals to remind you. You can also eat food that is high in water content as it will keep you hydrated inside and out.

7.  Protect your skin from the cold

Layer up! During the winters, cover up exposed skin when you are going outside in the cold weather. This will help you prevent windburn and other forms of cold weather-related dryness. The face and the hands are the most sensitive and the most exposed parts of our body that take the biggest hit. Use the right moisturiser and cover your face and hands to keep them protected from cold winds. You can get creative with your face masks and gloves and match them with your outfit to look hip and at the same time, protect yourself.

8.  Consult a dermatologist

If you have severely dry skin that doesn’t improve with any of the abovementioned tips, then unfortunately it may time for you to consult a dermatologist. They can examine your skin and tell you if you need to concern yourself or if it is something that is easily treated. Either way be sure to get the right treatment and the right medication to avoid damaging your skin. Be your own friend and treat yourself with care and respect.
