List of Cruelty-Free & Vegan Hair Dye Brands

This post may contain affiliate links.

Shopping for a semi or permanent home hair dye is hard enough but when you factor in trying to find one that’s also cruelty-free and vegan, your options shrink to virtually NONE that’s available at your local drugstore.

That’s because almost all of the hair dye brands sold at the drugstore are from brands that test on animals like Revlon Colorsilk, Nice’ N Easy, and John Frieda.

A list of cruelty-free and vegan hair dye brands has been one of the most asked and recommended shopping guides from my readers and I’ve been putting it off for a while because I was sadly not hearing back from most self-proclaimed “cruelty-free” and/or “vegan” hair color brands when trying to verify their animal testing policy.

I contacted over 30 brands and not even half of them responded back to me. But I’m not going to leave you hanging any longer as I’ve successfully found 7 cruelty-free and vegan hair dye brands! I will update this list with more options as new information becomes available.

    I heard Smart Beauty is both cruelty free and vegan and they have some permanent colours. However is there any update on Good Dye Young? Moreover, I am well aware of the Leaping bunny as cruelty free with their own standards and certification schemes, as well as some other Vegan society certification schemes. However, I cannot understand of Peta certified is just to confirm that some company tests on animals or they are actually a third part certification and verification scheme? What is the difference? Please explain.

      I’m wondering the same as MariAurora23

    Are there any vegan crueltyfree permanent dyes with colors like blue black or burgundy black?? Having the hardest time finding permanent dyes :/

    Naturatint isnโ€™t vegan as they sell in China when required by law! Unless this has changed in the last 12 months?

    • Vicky Ly

      Hi Lucy,
      When I spoke with them in August 2018, they told me that Naturtint is NOT sold in China.

    Oh I forgot to mention the name of the henna brand that is on hennerforhair.com and mehendi. it’s called Ancient Sunrise. I have used their raj twilight henna with kristalovino powder to dye my hair once and while it gave me a nice color, I wouldn’t dye my hair with henna again as it is a super messy process. Ancient Sunrise doesn’t buy a vegan label though because they do lab testing on the henna to prove that there is no animal ingredients. They’re cruelty free.

    Is shea moisture vegan?

    what about Black Professional?

    iโ€™m fairly sure good dye young is cruelty free as well or working on making all theyโ€™re products cruelty free. good dye young is hayley williams brand of hair dye

      Hey Erin,

      Unfortunately I still haven’t heard back from Good Dye Young when trying to verify their cruelty-free and animal testing status. I’ll be sure to update this list and include them if I hear back from them =) Thanks for the suggestion!

    What about Paul Mitchell? Aren’t they a CF brand?

    • Vicky Ly
      August 17, 2018

      Hi Angel,

      Yes, Paul Mitchell is cruelty-free and don’t test on animals however I couldn’t find any information on whether their hair color products were vegan and if they contain any animal-derived ingredients. Until I receive information that their hair color products are vegan, I’ll be sure to add them to this list =)

    Why did you include Lime Crime on this list? They’re shady and have a reputation of being bad to customers. Surya isn’t a good henna brand because they mix henna with other ingredients, making it compound henna. I like the henna powder on hennaforhair.com

    • Vicky Ly
      August 16, 2018

      Lime Crime is cruelty-free and vegan and that’s why I chose to add them to this list. That’s too bad to hear about Surya, I’ll definitely look into the henna powder you recommended.

      • Michael Pham
        September 5, 2018

        I forgot to mention that the brand of the henna I have mentioned is called Ancient Sunrise. They’re cruelty free and vegan, but they don’t buy vegan labels because they lab test the henna themselves to ensure that there are no animal ingredients. hennaforhair and mehandi are both good resources for the brand

  • Samantha

    Hi, I wanted to add on that oVertone.co is a cruelty-free and vegan brand that sells conditioners that also work as dyes! I highly recommend you check them out.
