How To Make Your Color Last

How To Make Your Color Last

As you may or may not know, I was not born with my beautiful blonde locks.  I get my color done every 3-4 weeks and I am always looking for products that keep my color as vibrant as the day I leave the salon.  Once, I used a purple shampoo every time I washed my hair only to find my hair turned a strange shade of gray a week later.  Hair highlighting salons like Hairzoo know it’s important to use the latest, top notch products with their clients so freshly colored hair does not fade color when the wrong products are used.

To help you sort through all the products out there, I compiled a list of top shampoos and conditioners that are perfect for your fresh color.
Pureology’s Complete Colour line of products is specifically designed for use on color treated hair. The best part of this line is that there are color-safe formulations for all kind of hair types and textures. Pureology’s line caters to all kinds of hair types and offers luxurious, effective products for all kinds of color treated hair.

Choosing a shampoo and conditioner combination from any of these Pureology lines is recommended to keep colored hair looking its best:

  • Strength Cure – for damaged color treated hair
  • Hydrate – for dry color treated hair
  • Pure Volume – for thin color treated hair
  • Precious Oil – for brittle color treated hair
  • Reviving Red – for red or copper color treated hair
  • Super Smooth – for color treated hair in need of smoothing
  • Perfect 4 Platinum – for highlighted hair
  • Nano Works – for aging color treated hair

Paul Mitchell
Paul Mitchell has long been known for creating the highest quality products using natural ingredients that work. Paul Mitchell’s Color Care line offers natural UV protection, gentle cleaning and conditioning and the best formulations to keep colored hair looking radiant. The Color Care line includes:

  • Color Protect Daily Shampoo
  • Color Protect Daily Conditioner
  • Color Protect Reconstructive Treatment
  • Color Protect Locking Spray

Use of Paul Mitchell’s Color Protect Daily shampoo and conditioner will prolong the time between color touch-ups and keep color looking fresh and beautiful. They contain sunflower extract that acts to protect hair from the sun’s rays, which can damage and fad color treated hair.

Matrix Biolage
The Matrix Biolage Colorcaretherapie line is designed to protect and maintain the beauty of newly colored hair. They offer gentle, low ph formulations that extend the life of color treated hair. The products in this line offer UV protection to keep colors looking their best.

The Colorcaretheapie line includes:

  • Color Care Shampoo
  • Color Care Conditioner
  • Color Care Bloom Masque
  • Cera-Repair Pro
  • Color Care Shine Shake

Matrix Biolage products are free of parabens and synthetic dyes to keep hair both beautiful and healthy. Use of their daily Color Care shampoo and conditioner will keep hair soft, shiny and looking fabulous.

Using the right products is the best line of defense for keeping newly colored hair fresh, vibrant and looking fabulous. If possible, don’t shampoo and condition every day. Every other day is usually sufficient for most hair types. When it is time to wash, be sure to choose a shampoo and conditioner combination from the choices listed above. Every time you walk past a mirror and catch a glimpse of your gorgeous hair, you’ll be glad you took the time to protect it.
