What is vegan hair dye and how to use it?

For many people, veganism goes beyond food. Vegans abstain from animal products.

A vegan hair dye is cruelty-free and won’t contain animal products or byproducts.

People commonly equate the term "vegan” with “healthy” and it is true that veganism offers a range of health benefits.

However, vegan hair dye may not necessarily be a better option for dyeing your hair.

The fact remains that any type of hair dye can potentially damage your hair — be it vegan or organic.

It is essential to do a patch test before trying any new hair dye product to check whether your skin reacts to the dye. Here's how:

1. Mix a small amount of the dye as directed in the instructions.

2. Dab the mixture on your neck or the inside of your elbow.

3. Monitor your skin’s reaction over 24 hours, checking for discoloration, itchiness, flakiness or a rash.

4. If you don’t experience any adverse reaction, apply the dye to your hair and scalp safely.
