Best shampoo for colour-treated hair

You can choose from different types of hair colour shampoo. For example, some have a colourwash effect, adding actual colour pigment to hair. Others are rich in nourishing oils, adding shine and sealing the hair against fading.

Some colour shampoos also feature UV and heat protection. This slows down colour loss.

The best shampoo for your colour-treated hair will also depend on your chosen hair colour. Different shampoos are designed to colour-protect blonde hair, red hair and darker shades like black or brunette.

Why use a shampoo for colour-treated hair

Hair dye contains tiny molecules of colour that enter your hair’s cuticle, outer layer and cortex.

Because they don’t directly affect your hair’s natural pigment (unless you bleach your hair first), the colour will inevitably fade over time. This is true especially with frequent washing.

Colour shampoo is designed to be gentle and to prevent the colour from being stripped out too soon. It extends the life and vibrancy of colour treatment.

Along with the right shampoo, it’s important to use a recognised brand of colour conditioner.

Shampoo for bleached hair

Bleached hair, even when it has been coloured afterwards, need a little extra TLC.

Colour shampoos are available specifically for bleached or highlighted hair, and for hair that has been bleached and then dyed a bright colour, such as purple or pink. This type of dying is particularly vulnerable to fading so an appropriate colour shampoo is vital.

A range of salon-quality colour conditioners and hair masks can also help give your bleached hair an extra boost of hydration and nourishment.

Sulphate free shampoo for coloured hair

In simple terms, sulphates are what make shampoos foam and lather. They can help remove grime and dead skin cells from your scalp and hair. But they can also be harsh and strip the hair of its natural oils.

For colour-treated hair, you want to retain this natural protection to avoid the hair becoming frizzy and dry.

If your colour-treated hair feels a bit dry or brittle, a sulphate free shampoo is the way to go.
