Color Treated Hair

The question I received was "What products should I use after coloring my hair?" and that is a tricky question. Everyone's hair is different. But there are a few tried and true products I recommend.

1- Color Stay Shampoo

I recommend Redken Color Magnetics Sulfate Free Color Extend Shampoo. It's amazing. I have never seen a shampoo protect the hair as well as this one does. 

2- Purple Shampoo (for blondes)
If you've lightened your hair I have only found one purple shampoo that I am in love with and that is UNITE Blonda Shampoo and Conditioner. It smells like grape soda and works wonders! It is powerful and I am obsessed with it. 

3- Amazing Conditioner
If you choose to use a sulfate free shampoo (like the magnetics by Redken mentioned above) you really don't need conditioner. But otherwise you will need a powerful conditioner, so I recommend TIGI S Factor "Serious" Conditioner. Just trust me on this one. 

After Color Hair Care Tips:
  • Do not use hot tools on your hair for three days after getting your hair colored. 
  • Do not wash your hair for 2 days after getting your hair colored. 
  • Use a shampoo designed for color treated hair
  • Do a deep condition treatment 1 week after your hair color serivce. 
  • When you wash your hair in the shower, use cold water.
  • If you can not stand to use cold water, after shampooing and conditioning, make the water cold and rinse your hair with it for a cold "shot". 
  • Do not color your hair more than once every other month 
  • Do not color your hair at home, please go to a professional: Here's Why!
