I haven't personally checked out every company.
So please do double check, as companies can change so quickly.

  1. I have used Naturtint from Holland & Barrett and have always been pleased with the results. I do use Superdrug ones too and like their price :)

    1. I am now a huge fan of John Freida colours, they last a good long time, leave my hair feeling silky and when on offer in Superdrug .. are very economical!

Lelan Crucial PhytoNatural Hair Colorant is usually enriched using eco-certified normal plant natural skin oils to feed and revitalize hair the way it colors. See below for detail:

    3. John Frieda tests on animals. Tons of better and cruelty-free choices out there.

  2. I have heard John Freida sell to China, so I would think their products are therefore tested on animals

  3. Emailed John Frieda after reading this & even thought they state they don't test on animals (end product nor ingredients), none of their permanent hair colours are vegan-friendly, including precision foam.
    Just thought I'd mention this as unless you'd did your own investigating first, you'd be buying something non-vegan. x

  4. See here, just received.

    "Thank you for your interest in John Frieda products.

    We are pleased to advise that John Frieda products are not tested on animals. When new products are developed, they are tested in our labs and in various salons on human volunteers.

    Please also note that we do not test our ingredients on animals nor hire anyone to test our products or ingredients on animals on our behalf. However, we do not put this information on any of our products due to limited label space and overall package design goals.

    Whilst John Frieda products are not vegan, we use ingredients that are mostly of non-animal origin and we make sure our ingredient suppliers are in compliance with regulations appropriate to our industry. John Frieda does not conduct or commission animal testing. We conduct world-class research and quality management to ensure all of our products are in compliance with safety and quality expectations and regulations..."

  5. Hi, just thought I'd update you as I have been today - precision foams are vegan-friendly. I emailed back asking if the PF weren't vegan as I read here they were & another rep said they were vegan-friendly including all components such as the shampoo/conditioners included in the boxes. Apparently the big email I'd received about JF products not being vegan just referred to the company as a whole but PF ingredients are fine for us to use.
    Bit contradictory if you ask me but they are okay!

    1. Thanks for the update, glad the original info I had got from them was correct. I will add them back into the guide now. Glad I saved the picture, as I thought this might turn out to be the case.

  6. I know this is an old entry, but I work for a hair and beauty supplier and Goldwell hair colour contains squalene, so it's definitely not vegan. :)

    1. Have you checked they are using the animal form of squalene? There are many plant sources. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squalene

  7. I found a dye named Colour Freedom by Knight and Wilson which stated it had no harsh chemicals so figuring this meant it might be Vegan friendly I emailed them and they confirmed it is.

  8. Thanks for sharing the information. That’s an awesome article you posted. I found the post very useful as well as interesting. I will come back to read some more.herbatint canada

  9. I don't trust John Frieda at all.
    The line about there not being enough box space to write cruelty free is nonsense.
    They give a different answer each time, and they don't have anything on their website about animal testing, which is extremely suspicious.
    If you were a cruelty free brand would you not want to advertise yourself as such?

    Go for brands that are actually guaranteed cruelty free.

  11. I have a letter today from John Frieda confirming non of their products are vegan. They don't check origins of their ingredients from their suppliers.
