Pureology Hydrate Shampoo

Here’s why you should use coloured hair shampoo: Women with coloured hair can go from dull to amazing in a snap!  Light caramel blonde hair like J-Lo’s can be strawberry blonde like Nicole Kidman’s; or your soft brown and copper colour like that of Mila Kunis can become ash grey blonde like Cara Delevingne’s in as short as two hours. The whole hair colour treatment will change the way you look, light up your face and make you feel like a goddess. I mean, that’s the whole point, right? You dye your hair because you want to feel good about yourself.

But, wait. If you decide to have your hair coloured, then, you need to know how to maintain it up until you have your regrowth coloured again. One of the ways to do all that is to use shampoo for coloured hair.

Now, why is there a pressing need to use shampoo for coloured hair?

  1. You need to use shampoo for coloured hair to maintain the vibrant hair colour.

The shade you are wearing after your hair colour treatment is NOT your natural shade. You have to remember that. So basically, you have to handle your hair with utmost care if you want your hair colour to last long.

Regular shampoos do not contain the necessary active ingredients which can prolong the colour on your hair. It can be washed off if you use the wrong shampoo, leaving your hair looking really dull. No one wants to have that lacklustre and faded hair colour look, you know. So, to keep it from fading……

                             coloured hair shampoo will definitely help in preserving its vibrancy.

  1. If you want to have shiny and healthy hair after the treatment, then, use coloured hair shampoo.

Depending on what brand of hair colour has been used, it can make your hair dry. That’s a fact, not all hair stylists will tell you. So, let it be known that this is a common issue of women with coloured hair. Of course, when colouring your hair, products like Olaplex can be added to help reduce the risk of damage. I’ll talk more about that in another blog, or check out this blog here.

Your hair could be host to split ends, and hair breakage might be a normal thing for you. These things could happen if you do not use coloured hair shampoo on your colour-treated hair. So, if you want your hair to be shiny, moisturised and strong, then, your best bet is a shampoo made for coloured hair.

Products like Pureology have been specifically designed to nurture coloured hair and  contain natural ingredients, which will help fix  hair breakage problems. Redken also make great products for colour treated hair, which will help maintain the colour and prevent the hair from splitting and breakage. As they say, prevention is better than cure, right?

  1. Most coloured hair shampoos contain UVA and UVB properties which will protect your hair from premature “ageing”.

Your hair can also experience ageing, just like your skin and your nails. Over time you might experience your hair thinning and falling out. Sun exposure can expedite the ageing of your hair and cheap supermarket shampoos are not equipped to protect your hair from that. The good thing about most coloured hair shampoos is that it contains UVA and UVB components. It will protect your hair from ageing and sun burn.

So hopefully that gives you some insight into why you need to use shampoos for coloured hair. If you want to have beautiful hair, then, you need to spend a little bit of extra cash on hair colour post-treatment basics, one of which is hair colour shampoo.
