Is anyone aware of hair dye that isn't tested on animals/isn't made from animals that one can get at a walgreens/whole foods/grocery store?

Are there any major hair dye brands that are inadvertently vegan?

Thanks!

I ended up going with Ion, some of their products say 100% vegan on the front. I don't know about the hair dyes though. I will look that up and get back to you all about that. Thanks for your suggestions thus far!!

naturtint can be found at whole foods and online. i'm pretty sure rusk color is vegan & they do not test. paul mitchell and pravana don't test, but they contain lanolin & beeswax, most pravana products contain silk.

Aveda, but that's salon colour only. That's what I get done and it's goooorgeous.

You mentioned you were looking for a nice auburn color- something like the henna sold at LUSH might be worth considering!

Resurrecting this thread because I've been doing research for myself and thought others might be interested. Behold, a list of vegan salon hair color options.

All vegan lines:
Framesi
Organic Color Systems

Paul Mitchell vegan options:
Dual-Purpose Lightener
Synchrolift
all developers
PM Shines and PM Shines processing liquid
Flash Finish toners

Paul Mitchell The Color and Shines XG are NOT vegan as both lines contain a beeswax base.

jessilikewhoa thanks for that!

Does anyone have any non-salon hair color brands? I need hair help :(

I am a light blonde. I have not been able to find anything in a drugstore/do it yourself that is even halfway cruelty free. It is my one item that I just cant find a replacement for. Henna, and stuff like that won't work, I need an actual hair color system, like the do it yourself bottles that are found in drugstores and target and whatnot.

At this point, I will buy something that is not tested, even if it is owned by a bad company....or items with a bit of beeswax or anything. I feel bad using what I use now, but I have a professional job and can't risk an experiment with henna or natural stuff, nor can I afford a salon visit every 6 weeks. My $7.99 hair-color in a box works great, but I have moral issues with it.

The ironic part: I am naturally a light blonde. My hair comes in a medium/dark blonde. Even if I leave it natural, it gets lighter about 2 inches from the roots, from sun, elements etc. And not a cool, ombre like fade to light. It is always a ROOT LINE. Ugh. Stuck in a horrible cycle of dying my hair every 6-8 weeks. If I can't find anything, its either back to the box, or I might MIGHT try growing it out again. But man, does it look bad...especially when I am doing events, and I do some stuff on camera.

If anyone has any suggestions, I am open to them! I have gone to hair message forums, but they are zero help because of the cruelty free aspect.

The only cruelty free vegan box colors I know of are Naturtint and Herbatint, and I've seen pretty mixed reviews on both brands. I know they sell one if not both brands at Whole Foods. Splat box colors are cruelty free and vegan too, but most of them are just lightener and then a crazy colored Manic Panic style vegetable dye, the only natural color they make is black.

If you're willing to buy something that's just not tested, but isn't necessarily vegan, Sally Beauty Supply sells Ion hair color, and One' n Only Argan hair color (owned by Conair who are on the Peta do not test list). They're just as easy to use as box dye.

Naturtint is the home dye that's vegan/CF, I think it's about $15? So pricier than most dyes but not as much as going to a salon. You can kind it at most health food stores or even on amazon. Jessi probably knows what you can get at Sally's, it might be cheaper to get a thing of developer, some dye, and a bowl/brush.

I had a friend in high school who had the same kind of hair, people always asked her why she didn't fix her roots and she got really annoyed.

Thanks! I will check out those brands. $15 is fine, but i will probably drop a Franklin if I go into WF to buy it. That store is trouble!

I'll check out the Argan one too. I think i have used their products before and liked them, years ago.
