Because if you dye your hair, you want it to stay fresh for as long as possible
Whether you’re a redhead, blonde or brunette, if you colour your hair chances are you’d like it to stay that way: coloured. And your one must-have for doing so is the best shampoo for coloured hair.
While blonde hair’s freshness can be extended using the best purple shampoo and conditioner, it’s also important to protect the hair colour overall. So, what should you be doing in the hair maintenance department?
‘Make sure to have professional repairing treatments after colour and in between colour appointments’ says Jack Cunningham-Rose, Colour Educator at Aveda. ‘Looking after the health and condition of your hair is my top tip for maintaining your colour.’
As well as using deeply repairing treatments and the best shampoo for coloured hair, having a trim on the regular is also essential to maintain your hair’s look and overall health.
‘Maintain a sharp haircut with regular trips to the salon; this, much like my first tip will improve the health of hair in the long-run by reducing split ends and further damage,’ Jack adds.
‘Always use appropriate protein based home hair care products for in between salon treatments, Aveda Damage Remedy Restructuring Treatment is perfect, simply use twice a week and it will maintain deep condition and healthy looking hair.’
And finally, always use the maximium possible protection for your hair when it comes to heat and UV rays from the sun – both of which can be incredibly damaging to colour. As Jack advises, ‘avoid over styling with heated tools and, if you do use them, make sure to use a heat protection spray beforehand.’
So with all this in mind, we’ve hand picked the very best shampoo for coloured hair below to seal your shade for as long as possible.
