Does anyone know of any easy to get in any store, hair dye that is vegan and does not test on animals? Is there any? Also, what about salon dyes? I usually go to the salon to get my hair highlighted. Is there any way of finding out whether or not their hair dyes are vegan and not tested on animals??? Thanks! Being vegan is really new to me, because unlike when I was vegetarian it kind of expands into pretty much every area of my life haha. So I'm trying to figure it all out... thanks

I guess you could ask the people working at the salon if you can see the bottles and check for 'no animal testing, no animal ingredients'. If it doesn't say that then write down the company name and contact them directly. You can also check bottles in the stores and write down company names and contact them.

Here's a link to an old thread about Cruelty-Free hair dye; also, you can check Peta's "does" and "does not" test on animals list.

Where do you live?

I know there's a vegan company in Australia called De Lorenzo that is pretty common in salons, they have a list of salons on their website.

AVEDA!

I always go to Aveda salons and have never gotten highlights with anything other than their products. They don't test on animals and their products are something like 99% plant based, I'm guessing that 1% is animal based but I don't know any other salons that use cruelty free, nearly vegan products.

I'm assuming that 1% is because some of their products contain honey, but I don't think their colour products would contain it. I'm going to be taking cosmetology at an Aveda school this fall, so I could find out for sure then.

I think the 1% is a preservative.

I went to the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis 14 years ago. I went for Esthiology. I'm still working as an Esthetician. I love it! It's a great school!

Also look into pureology they're 100% vegan, I'm not totally sure if they do colour or not, but you could ask at a salon that carries their products.

As far as color goes, you would be best off going to a salon that offers "organic color" Checking the back of the tube/box of color from the salon will do you no good...since you can't even pronounce any of the words. You can always call the salon, ask what color line they use, and do a little research to determine whether or not they test on animals and whatnot. As far as animal derived ingredients, you'd probably have to contact the company directly. Don't buy box color from the grocery store...depending what kind, they can be very damaging to your hair because of the metals that they put in it to make your hair appear shiny and healthy.
