Win a Pair of Tickets to “The Seed: A Vegan Experience” in NYC June 16-17

Filed under: Events New York City

Hey lucktastic cheapskates, wanna go to The Seed, but not sure about the $30 ticket price? We’re giving away a pair of two-day pass tickets here. To be eligible to win, you have to leave a comment on this post. And your comment has to be about vegan hair-care. Why? Because we hope you’ll write something awesome about anti-speciesist hair-cair, that’s why! We’ll pick a winner on Friday at 6pm NYC-time, so comment before then.

If you haven’t heard about The Seed yet, it’s a two-day event billed as “Two Full Days of Vegan Immersion” happening in Soho June 16 & 17. There’s a totally impressive schedule, including an all-vegan version of the Bust Craftacular, food samples and cooking demos, film screenings (including the NYC premiere of Lunch Hour and the kudzu-like fan-favorites Forks over Knives and Veducated), speakers and panels galore–some of the many names worth turning up for include Sue Coe, Fran Costigan, Brendan Brazier, JL Fields, Yoli Ouija, Victoria Moran, Eddie Garza, Jenny Brown, Our Hen House, Hannah Kaminksy, Colleen Patrick Goudreau, Michelle Schwegmann, etc. etc. Oh, just go look at the full speakers and participants lists. This thing is big.

But I don’t see anything on their schedule about vegan hair-care, so let’s cover that here. Serious or funny, whatever. Make sure you enter an e-mail address with your comment (will not be public) so we can contact you if you win.

    Olive oil! My husband (not a vegan) used to use olive oil in his hair and it turned out soft and shiny.

    Don’t wash it, ever. I think we should perpetuate the myth that all vegans are dirty hippies.

    My vegan hair salon in Philly recently closed down. Right when I needed to buy new cruelty-free shampoo. Because of this tragedy, I have nothing but tears to add to this vegan hair care discussion. Please join with me in mourning this great loss. *bows head*

    TheraNEEM naturals are vegan, paraben free, sulfate free and gluten free. Their shampoo and conditioners are refreshing. Using these products feels healthy an kind to animals. Avocado, or olive oil over night or under a hat while going for a run works great for hydrating!!

    I use tresseme dry hair shampoo because it says they do not test on animals. I only shampoo once or twice a week with animal-friendly suds, and condition about every other day. This helps keep my hair clean and not greasy looking, without overydrying from too much washing. It also works to keep colors alive if one feels the need to color their hair.

    Good timing on this question! I recently went from long, long hair to a choppier, shorter do and then i thought, “oh crap! now i will actually need to DO my hair!” and so i went to the store in search of vegan hair products. i have to say i love the GIOVANNI hair products–especially the hair styling foam. the scents aren’t overpowering, but subtle and refreshing and the products actually work the way they are supposed to. the price is good too–so even if you recently made the switch to vegan hair care products, you won’t suffer any sticker shock on the price with these products.

    Everyone comments on how nice my long curly hair is! Thanks to a vegan diet, I’ve been able to grow healthy hair longer than a foot and I plan to donate it!

    Coconut oil, organic, unrefined. I just started using it but it looks promising so far and I don’t have to use chemical and alcohol filled hair products.

    Who wants animal products in their hair? Cruelty free hair rocks! My hair brings all the bunnies to the yard.

    My Alba shampoo says 100% vegetarian and no animal testing and Giovanni has no animal by-products and no animal testing. I really wish we had a company like BioLand in the US. All of the soaps have symbols on the back of the box representing biodegradable ingredients, no artificial colors, no animal testing, no animal ingredients, and recycled paper used for the boxes. And they are available at every little shop. I’ve been trying to find a supplier on line and I’m really happy I stocked up when I could

    Once I mashed avocado in my hair but I’m not sure it did any good. I think I was just drunk (on vegan beer of course.)

    Thanks, all! Melissa won this round (by random drawing). Congrats to her!

    We do have one more pair of passes we’ll be giving out this week, so check back for that.

    As a vegan woman who’s colored her hair for YEARS, that’s always been a big concern for me. Manic Panic is awesome (who doesn’t want to rock pink especially in October – breast cancer awareness month) but I have used Revlon when I couldn’t get any Manic Panic or my wallet was bare. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!
