If you color your hair, you probably know that using the right shampoo to maintain your hair color is mission critical. Whether you’ve paid $20 for a box of organic hair dye and colored your mane yourself or shelled out top dollar for an organic treatment with a stylist, your investment in your hair color won’t be worth anything if your shampoo strips the hue away.
We know how important it is to find a great shampoo for color-treated hair. We also realize the importance of using a vegan and cruelty-free shampoo. So, we’ve searched and put together a list of some amazing vegan and hair color-friendly shampoos we think you should know about.
Try these cruelty-free products if you love coloring your hair, saving money, and animals.

Surya Brasil is a 100% vegan and cruelty-free beauty brand that’s well known for being a leader when it comes to henna hair color and hair color-friendly shampoo. The company’s Restorative Shampoo is a gentle hair cleanser that removes product buildup and oil, without stripping or fading color.
Blousey by Lush
If you have over-processed hair, you’re probably going to love Blousey by Lush. This cruelty-free, color-friendly shampoo is non-stripping and gentle. It’s ultra moisturizing, thanks to a huge helping of cocoa and cupuacu butters as well as mashed bananas. This shampoo is ideal for bringing damaged hair back to life.

These are three of our favorite vegan and cruelty-free shampoos for color-treated hair. We also love Pureology’s Hydrate Shampoo and Pura d’or’s Premium Organic Shampoo. You can purchase all of these vegan color-friendly shampoos online.
If for some reason you have to go to a salon, look for a Paul Mitchell salon. Paul Mitchell is dedicated to being animal product-free and cruelty-free, and their Awapuhi Ginger product line is safe for color-treated hair.
