Colored hair is often sensitive, due to the fact that chemicals can leave the hair feeling damaged or brittle. Also, color can fade, leaving the hair with a dull look. To keep colored hair looking its best, there are certain styling products to use, as well as certain ones to avoid.
Over the years, I have helped and observed many friends with colored hair style their hair. I have dyed my hair a couple times, but now opt for the natural look. Colored hair is more susceptible to damage than natural hair. This is because of the chemicals used in the dyeing process. Also, it is because of the routine maintenance involved in keeping the color lasting long.
Must Have Shampoo for Colored Hair
Colored hair needs a moisturizing shampoo to combat the brittle effects that can occur. Shampoo for color-treated hair also should provide sheen because colored hair can get dull. A shampoo that I have found to do both of those things, as well as tame frizz, is bioInfusion Olive Oil Moisturizing Shampoo. Not only does it clean the hair very well, but it leaves behind moisturizers that create a shiny, tame look that isn’t too weighed down. I have seen the effects of this shampoo on several people with varying hair types and it has worked on them all. The bioInfusion products can be found at Walgreen’s locations and on Walgreens.com.
Must Have Conditioner for Colored Hair
Much like the shampoo, conditioner for color treated hair should moisturize, reduce damage and breakage, and give a shiny appearance. BioInfusion Olive Oil Deep Conditioning Treatment does a great job at that without weighing the hair down. I have seen this product used on several different people that all have different hair types. Everyone has been pleased with the results, including those with the driest, thickest of hair or even the oiliest, thinnest hair. Like the shampoo, this product can be found at Walgreen’s physical locations, as well as online at Walgreens.com.
Must Have Styling Products for Colored Hair
Because of the sensitive nature of colored hair, natural styling products are the healthiest way to go. If your hair is blonde or another light color (or you want to naturally highlight the hair), a great way to highlight the color is by using lemon juice. Concentrated lemon juice can be applied to the hair to create highlights or enhance hair that is dyed with a light color. Organic coconut oil can be used to increase shine and manageability for colored hair. Try to avoid heated styling devices in color treated hair, as they can cause damage. Tea tree oil is another way to get that natural shine back in dull, colored hair.
