Cruelty Free – Hair Dye Brands That Don’t Test On Animals (And Vegan Dyes)

Updated on June 22, 2013

Cruelty Free

If you’re looking to dye your hair but are worried about the ethical implications of animal testing then you may feel as though you are stuck in your decision - that bright colour or the idea of covering up your greys may be tempting you to go against your ethics, but you may be interested to find that there are some great brands out there that don’t test on animals! Whether you’re looking to change your shade subtly or are going for a whole new colour, no animals have to be harmed in the process.  There is even a variety of vegan companies that make hair dyes, meaning that they are not only cruelty-free but also have absolutely no animal produce in them whatsoever!  Doubley good!

Manic Panic

Among the most popular of hair colours for those looking for bright hair, Manic Panic is a fully vegan company.  Their wide range of shades means that you can pick the one that suits you perfectly.

Fudge

Fudge Paintbox is an amazing brand with a range of stunning bright hair dyes.  Although semi-permanent these dyes hold quite long, meaning that you save money and get to keep your wild shades for longer!

Avigal Henna

This is a brand that not only doesn’t test on animals but also is fully vegan.  Not only will you find these henna dyes in natural shades, but colours such as topaz or red are available, too!  This brand has some great reviews, and is great all-round for those that want their cruelty-free products to not include animal products, either.

Developlus

This vegan brand does some fantastic natural shades but you can also find some brighter colours in their Splat range.  This range also includes some wonderful wash out hair dyes that glow in the dark – ideal for wild nights out!

Conair

This brand does some fantastic brush-on hair dyes in a variety of colours!  If you’re looking for some extra colourful glamour then their hair jeweller is also a great buy!

      Try Henna Color Lab hair dyes. They're also vegan and cruelty-free. :)

      Bumble and Bumble is owned by Estée Lauder.. So they are not cruelty free as they test on animals.

      Yes! Just the thing I was looking for! :) With all these companies, it goes to show beauty doesn't need to mean pain for animals. And isn't it encouraging that someone as popular as Paul Mitchell agrees? Thanks for the hub!

      I love Henna products but at $11 a box and color that only lasts maybe 2 weeks. I have to wash my hair daily so finding a cruelty free semi permanent hair color that will last a bit longer would be great.
