Your Vegan Guide to Punky Colored Hair

vegan guide to punky colored hair

In high school and college, I was all about having fun, vibrant, expressive hair—pink, green, blue, yellow… you name it, and as of 2 1/2 years ago, I finally returned to my colorful roots. I’ve been mostly pink, but I’ve dabbled with a bit of purple and maroon. It’s SO much fun, and I really feel I look my best with these vibrant, girlie shades.

While I’m partial to a couple of punky color brands (feel free to comment or msg me for more deets), I’m beyond stoked to know that all the brands listed below are vegan and cruelty-free! Some of them even smell like candy! ;)

Just a couple of notes: All of these dyes are semi-permanent and will fade with each wash. I also highly recommend bleaching your hair before using these dyes for a brighter, more intense outcome.

Kick-ass, colorful vegan & cruelty-free hair dyes:

What you’ll need in addition to a bleach kit and hair dye:

  • An old raggedy shirt
  • Latex gloves
  • Tint Brush/Comb
  • Plastic bowl
  • Cap

Simply follow the instructions on your bleach kit/hair dye, and enjoy the colorful transformation. Since these semi-permanent dyes do tend to fade with each wash, I highly recommend not washing your hair every single day (I often skip a week, sometimes two). I def use dry shampoo in between washes, though. For a complete list of vegan and cruelty-free dry shampoos, click here!

    Arctic Fox Hair Colours are also amazing and so long lasting. They are vegan, cuelty-free plus they donate money to animal welfare charities:)

    How do you know that punky colour and raw dye are vegan? i could not find confirmation about the ingredients not having animal products anywhere. It does have glycerin and things that end in stearate.

    Do you where to get cruelty free latex gloves? Not even sure that is possible

    Which brand is your current pink? I had a salon put a strip of pink in (I wish my job would allow me to do my whole head!) but it has washed out with three shampooings. I think I’m going to try Manic Panic’s cotton candy.
