Why is it important to use hair colour conditioner?

Without the right colour shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair, molecules of colour pigment wash out of your hair. Over time, they’re also destroyed by exposure to heat, UV rays, chemicals, mineral deposits and other environmental factors.

A conditioner for coloured hair is formulated to help prevent colour fading. It coats and seals the hair strands, to lock in colour.

Also, molecules of colour pigment adhere the best to hair that’s healthy. Fading is much quicker if hair is dry, porous and brittle.

The hair dying process itself can have a drying effect on hair. This is why it’s important to use a deep conditioner for coloured hair.

The best conditioner for colour-treated hair

The best conditioner for coloured hair:

      • is free of harsh chemicals
      • includes highly nourishing oils and vitamins
      • seals the hair cuticle against damage and moisture loss.

The best hair dye conditioner will also depend on your hair colour.

Colour-protecting conditioners are available specifically for bright colours such as red, or for brunette or blonde hair.

Rainbow conditioners, suitable for a wide range of colours, from pink to blue, green or purple, are also available.

How often should you use a colour protecting conditioner?

If your hair is colour treated, you should be using a colour conditioner. Ideally, use a protecting shampoo and conditioner each time you wash your hair.

The right anti-fade conditioner won’t make your hair heavy or more prone to oiliness. Instead, it will add shine and keep your hair healthy and vibrant.

Conditioner for bleached hair

When a colour treatment requires bleaching, your hair will inevitably take a bit more damage. These conditioners are available specifically for bleached hair or hair that has had strong highlights added.

If your bleached hair feels a bit dry or brittle, use a conditioner every time you wash it. It’s also a good idea to consider using a conditioning hair mask occasionally.

Can you use a leave-in conditioner on colour-treated hair?

Leave-in conditioners are great for detangling frizzy hair and protecting your hair during styling. They also add extra hydration.

If you’re going to use a leave-in conditioner, stick to one that specifies it’s safe for treated hair. Other products may contain chemicals that cause loss of fading of colour.

If in doubt, rather stick with a trusted hair choice that you rinse out.
