Painting your hair a new colour sounds exciting but to prevent damage and fading, you have to invest in a new haircare routine. Dyed hair requires a bit more effort than natural hair – but the right products will help keep your hair healthy.
Here’s our pick of top products for coloured hair:
If you have… Blonde Hair
If A-listers like Selena Gomez, Zendaya and Taylor Swift are going blonde, so are we. To avoid brassiness, brittleness and dull hair, make sure you use a purple shampoo and conditioner at least twice a week, and a hair mask every week.
If you have… Red Hair
If there is one thing to note before going red, it is to avoid extreme heat and temperatures after your treatment. Red pigments are light-sensitive and heavy exposure to UV rays can lead to faded and dull hair. Invest in treatments with UV protection and an easy semi-permanent hair dye to top up your red at home.
If you have… Dark Hair
You don’t want your glossy raven mane to fade away, so make sure you don’t wash it too often and rinse it off in cool, not hot water. Don’t scrub your hair dry with a towel, either – be gentle with it and the colour will last longer.
If you have… Unicorn Hair
A multicoloured unicorn-inspired mane calls for an out-of-the-box, no-shampoo routine. To ensure long-lasting colour, it is important to avoid shampooing your hair unless absolutely necessary.
Try co-washing instead, where you replace shampoo with conditioner. For a quick fix, dry shampoo is the way to go and before picking up any styling tools, spritz a few pumps of heat-protecting spray – because nothing morphs colour intensity faster than heat.
