Vegan hair is not a hair product.
It’s not an alternative to a regular hair care routine.
It is not made of a synthetic fibre.
It does not contain any animal by-products.
Vegan hair products are not vegan and have no ingredients from animals.
There is no ‘vegan’ word in veganism, and it’s a way of describing a lifestyle.
What does ‘vegans’ mean?
Veganism is a lifestyle based on vegan food, drink and lifestyle choices.
For most people, veganism is about eating and living sustainably.
There are many different kinds of veganism and some people may choose to be more ethical or environmentally conscious.
Some veganism advocates choose to live entirely vegetarian, vegan, or vegan-friendly.
Some also make a distinction between ‘vegetarian’ and ‘veggie’ (vegan eating) and are also vegan-aware.
2/10 How do I know if my hair is vegan?
There are a number of things you can do to make sure your hair is Vegan-friendly: avoid products made from animal byproducts such as paraffin wax and petrolatum.
These are known as synthetic fibers, and they are usually derived from synthetic materials.
Avoid using synthetic hair products that are not from a natural product (like plant-based hair care products).
For example, a natural hair care product made from coconut oil is Vegan, but it may contain paraffinity wax and other synthetic products, which are not Vegan.
You can check your hair product ingredients on the Vegan Beauty & Health website.
3/10 Can I use a hair dye to give my hair a different colour?
No, hair dye does not make hair colour.
However, there are products that can make your hair colour change depending on how the dye is applied.
You should not use a dye to make your colour any more pigmented than it already is.
Instead, try using a hair colour that gives your hair a natural colour and not a shade that is too intense.
You could also try a hair gloss or a hair styling product that is designed to highlight your hair.
Try to use hair products with no synthetic ingredients in them and try to avoid products that contain animal byproduct (such as parabens).
The Vegan Beauty&Health website offers more tips for choosing hair products to help you choose the right one for you.

6/10 Why should I use an oil-free shampoo?
Oil-free hair products may be used for a number for a variety of reasons.
They can be used to treat and maintain a long-term condition, such as rosacea, and for styling.
However they also come in a range of other uses, including as a hair treatment and even as a natural barrier against the common cold.
When using a shampoo with animal-derived ingredients, such is the case with oil-based shampoo, you’re using a synthetic product, which is made from synthetic ingredients, and these are known to cause health problems.
