Best Ethical Shampoos for Men

ethical hair care for men

We hear you, good sir! You want to look after your hair. What self-respecting man these days doesn’t? It can sometimes be a bit of misconceived topic, hair care. And whilst you may be able to relay on the fact that, yes, hair does in fact produce it’s own regulating oils to stay healthy, there’s no doubt the amount of stress we put on it with styling products, constant style changes and the urban environments we live in.

Man Of New has curated a truly descent collection of ethical and vegan hair care products that will ensure your bonnet stands proud, and your hunger for quality will be sated. No longer will you head for the supermarket for big labels who, let’s face it, made a name for themselves through clever marketing, packaging and brand awareness.

With these choices you now have high quality, ethical and vegan options for your bathroom cabinet. Check out some of our favourites below.
