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.
