Hair Dye Not Tested on Animals

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi there, I'm looking to dye my hair for the first time in about 10 years and I'd like to use a product not tested on animals. It would also be good if it's a natural product.



Does anyone know of any, or tried any that are good?



Thanks

You could try using henna. You can find natural henna in different shades. I've seen it in my local health food store and in Whole Foods.

Stargazer/Directions (not natural but non-toxic and vegan, and smell like my little ponies haha)

they wash out kinda quick though (about 2-3 weeks with washing hair every other day i find) and most of the colours er, arent really natural. theyre mixable so you could make ones though!

As far as I know Revlon doesn't do any animal testing and they have some hair dye in most retail stores.

I use Herbatint.



I even use the colour on the girl that's on the main page!

Revlon doesn't test on animals

But beware of l'Oreal and Garnier and Clairol (Procter & Gamble), the three main drugstore brands. Also anything Johnson & Johnson... clean & clear, except for your conscience.



These hair colours are not tested on animals:

Whole Foods sent reps to Vegan Mania in Chicago to spread propaganda and hand out evaluations asking if we were sick. They also have been seen on video not co-operating with Non-GMO labeling. My friend calls it them "becoming lobbyists themselves" because they have gotten so big. They so far to my knowledge have not donated any money to fund the prop. 37 campaign either.

I don't know where you're from, but if you're from the UK, Superdrugs own brands of hairdye are vegan and cruelty free.

I've never tryed them myself but apparantly they're very good. They're cheap aswell!

If you haven't used anything yet, I would also suggest henna! It doesn't go well over previously dyed hair, I first used it when my hair was somewhat lightened and it was flame red! In a good way, though. Anyway, it's so cheap and natural. If you have white hairs, they will take on the color of the henna completely, the rest just being tinted. I use the natural henna, and my white hairs are quite red- like it's been highlighted.

 

edit: this thread's from '07!

Revlon DOES test on animals....

PETA has a list on their site that will tell you which companies and which products are tested on animals....Revlon is listed as a company that tests on animals...

LOL Silva, I wrote my post and then realised the '07 too late. Oh well....HAIR DYE TALK!

If you do choose Henna, then just be aware it's permanent in the best/worst ways.

 

It basically is meant to lock into the hair, which is great. But it can make it difficult to dye over with anything other than henna and there could be issues with peroxide later on.  (I looked into Henna a while ago)- http://www.mookychick.co.uk/health-beauty/hair-styles/removing-henna.php#removinghenna2


A semi-permanent that I use is Manic Panic. It covers well, though if you want the loud colours you'll need to peroxide your hair first. It's okay, but it does take work, like not going near anything white that you can rub off on after a shower.... I also turned my boyfriend's arm purple. It was a total accident. I promise :P

John Frieda isn't vegan (At least, I don't think) but didn't test on animals as of about 5 or 6 months ago. It's an easy do-it-at-home kit.

I know, right?! Revlon was my go-to make up and hair brand, until I found that out.

Luckily though, there's a range of hair dyes that are coming out that are cruely free. Delorenzo are meant to be pretty great, I've never used it (they don't seem to have a purple....) but I've heard good things.

Hey I think this is great! GUESS WHAT! I'm a hair dresser and I am all about animal free products! Go to and Aveda salon and get your hair done! Aveda is animal cruelty free all the way!
