Here at All Things Hair, we are constantly inspired by those who remain committed to vegan beauty routines. By opting for products that are safer for our bodies, for animals, and often for the planet, conscious consumers are changing the beauty landscape and creating a safer environment for all.

Vegan hair dyes use plant-based ingredients to help you achieve your hair color goals. Rather than the harsh chemicals found in typical hair dyes, vegan alternatives offer gentler ingredients that still yield vibrant color results.

Vegan Hair Dye: Alternative Ingredients

Using ingredients like henna, carmine, cocoa, among others, vegan hair dye delivers long-lasting color as well as your favorite standard hair dyes. These hair dyes also often incorporate nourishing natural ingredients like cocoa butter and aloe vera to deliver moisture and hydration to your hair throughout the process.
