Cruelty-Free Hair Color

Oh, the fun of hair color! There is just something sublimely satisfying about dying your hair a vibrant shade of red in the middle of a cold and gray winter or bright blond at the height of summer. Fortunately, these days there are many cruelty-free hair colors. No matter if you prefer an all-natural dye, a quick pick-up box from the drugstore, a semi-permanent color, or a salon service, there is definitely something for everyone.

Manic Panic
If you’re looking for semi-permanent hair color without ammonia or peroxide, then look no further. Manic Panic has wild and tame colors to satisfy your moods and tresses. Whether you want to have hot pink streaks or just a natural black or brown, Manic Panic is great.

Morrocco Method 

As natural as hair color can be, Morrocco Method’s henna hair color products will give you quality color without chemicals or toxins.

If it’s 100 percent natural plant-based henna color that you’re after, check out the henna bars from Lush in red, brown, and black tones.

For salon service, try these:

    Tried “Naturtint” the other day. I recommend it for sure. so happy I have found me a good cruelty free hair colouring kit : )

  • Smooper says:

    I’m so glad to see there are others throwing out their products after discovering they have been tested on animals and also contain dangerous chemicals. Everyone called me mad when i threw out my L’oreal stuff! but when i found out about animal testing still going on i just had to. :) <3 well done everyone for making a difference :)

  • Silvia says:

    For all of you asking for a permanent hair coloring kit not tested on animals- I’m just about to try “Naturtint”. I’m counting on it cause its the only option here in Israel.

  • Jeri says:

    I need Auburn hair dye that’s permanent and cruelty free. Any help?

  • Sam says:

    Can someone please help me? I need permanent hair dye available in Australia NOT tested on animals or made by a company that retails in China. I don’t care if it has not nice things for my hair, I just need normal frikkin hair dye that isn’t animal tested!

  • clem says:

    Fur and hair are different ph balances, as a cosmetologist we are taught the difference between these balances, you should not be using products made for human hair on animal fur, let alone coloring an animal. Seriously, just don’t.

    Is Nectaya Color by Goldwell vegan?

  • Min says:

    Is there a hair colouring kit, not tested on animals, that will make light to medium brown hair a bleached blonde? I know there are kits not tested on animals, but are any of them able to really bleach darker hair to blonde?

  • kim says:

    Is splat really vegan? I almost bought it but I need to be 100% sure. Help?! 😀

  • Lisa says:

    Hi…Are Schwarzcopf professional hair care and Framesi professional hair care cruelty free? Are there any animal b-iproducts used in their hair color? I am a stylist/colorist and would really like to know the correct answer. Thank you, sincerely.

    Actually , I’m pretty sure that Estee Lauder doesn’t test their FINAL products in animals ,but that doesn’t mean that their ingredients are cruelty free .

  • gavin says:

    i thought revlon owned almay since ’87?

    Do you know that … ((all experiment on animals since selling in china))

    Estee Lauder owns Aramis, Aveda, Clinique, Bobbi Brown, Bumble & Bumble, Darphin, Prescriptives, M.A.C., Jo Malone, Origins, Ojon, American Beauty, Flirt, Good Skin and Creme de la Mer.

    L’oreal owns Maybelline, Lancome, Helena Rubinstein, BioMedic, Vichy, Biotherm, La Roche Posay, Redken, Skinceuticals, Garnier, Keratase, Kiehl’s, Shu Uemura and Giorgio Armani.

    Proctor & Gamble owns Cover Girl, Max Factor, Olay, Clairol, Ivory, Noxzema, Pantene and SK-II.

    Johnson & Johnson owns Neutrogena, Aveeno, Clean & Clear, RoC and Lubriderm.

    Interesting, eh? Makes you wonder why there’s such a huge difference in prices when it comes to the high-end and drugstore brands owned by the same company. It’s marketing, people. Really good and expensive marketing.
