Aveda's official statement is pretty vague about animal-testing. They state that they don't test on animals and that they don't ask others to unless required by law. It sounds like they don't test, period, but I'm not sure that it's any better that they ask others to if "required by law". Their statement is here: http://www.aveda.com/cms/customer_service/ faq.tmpl#faq2
LUSH does not animal test and has a solid shampoo bar that's supposed to be great for thinning hair. Their solid shampoo irritates my very sensitive scalp, but a lot of people love it. http://www.lushusa.com/NEW%21/02009,en_US, pd.html?start=2&cgid=liquid-shampoos
If you have a Whole Foods near you, I'd also recommend stopping in and going to the Whole Body department to ask for recommendations. They're super helpful.

I use Wen Almond Mint and it creates volume without coating the hair, which would just flatten mine. It also doesn't have laurel or laureth sulfate. A big plus! On the Wen site: "WEN by Chaz Dean products are not tested on animals, nor does it contain any animal derived ingredients. The WEN product line is based on plants and other ingredients."
Some people think the “plant-based whole foods diet” is extreme. Half a million a year will have their chests opened up and a vein taken from their leg and sewn onto their coronary artery. Some people would call that extreme. - Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, “Forks Over Knives”
I know spark people focuses on diet but I didn't know where else to ask this question. My hair is thinning and I'm looking for solutions and hair thickeners that are cruelty free. I was going to use the Aveda invati line but I read somewhere that Aveda tests on animals when the law requires it. I'm not sure how true this is though. Does anyone know of any good thickening shampoos or hair loss remedies?
