Have you ever dyed your hair with traditional at-home hair color and almost had to call 911 because the fumes nearly killed you? I think we all made that mistake one time or another. Unfortunately, vegan hair dye wasn’t always available on store shelves. But, these days, they are plentiful, and some of the colors are incredibly fun, flirty and vibrant.

So what are your plans this summer? No, really! Let me know in the comments!

Last summer was a dud due to Covid, but this year, you get a chance to go out and actually live. And what better way to celebrate than to give your hair a little makeover with some ethical vegan hair color that’ll turn heads!


Vegan hair dye is:

  • PPD Free
  • Paraben Free
  • Ammonia Free
  • GMO Free
  • Cruelty Free

And I wish that all hair dye consisted of these qualities, but unfortunately, they don’t. Not only is traditional dye horrible for your health, it’s also bad for the environment, because you’re rinsing it out in sink, and all of those chemicals go down the drain.

Vegan hair dye on the other hand, is nontoxic and eco-friendly, so you won’t feel bad about using it. And many are semi-permanent, which is great because you get to experiment with different shades without damaging your hair!

So this summer, change it up a notch, and enjoy life! Metallic type of shades like greys and silver are tending this year—and you’ll look great at the beach, raves or wherever else life takes you. Take a look below for some inspiration and have fun responsibly!
