We’ve seen it on our favourite celebs, we’ve seen it on the catwalks and now we’ve seen it take over festival season; coloured hair is here and it’s here to stay. But if you’ve given in to this season’s hottest trend and decided to turn your barnet into a rainbow, you might need to read our guide to taking care of coloured hair to make sure you don’t end up with frazzled locks.
First things first, to protect your hair you’re going to need to make sure you pick a high-quality hair dye. Colouring your hair may seem like a fun impulse decision but taking the time to choose the right dye can make all the difference to your hair’s health. Personally, we love Revlon’s Nutri Colour Creme. Not only does this hair-loving dye leave out harsh peroxide and ammonia, it’s also made using natural fruit acids designed to moisturise and smooth your hair too. Lush.
Once your hair is coloured you’ll need to pick up a special colour shampoo and conditioner to keep it in top-top condition. These shampoos and conditioners will make sure your hair stays clean and fresh without fading your colour, as well as providing plenty of moisture to stop coloured hair from drying out.
If you do dye your hair frequently, it’s also a good idea to keep it nourished with intensive treatments every now and again. L’Oreal Professionel’s Serie Expert Vitamino Colour Masque is designed to work specifically with coloured hair, both to protect and strengthen locks as well as enhance your colour’s vibrancy.
So there you have it, taking care of coloured hair is really all about moisture, moisture, moisture. As long as you make sure to keep your tresses well-nourished, you should be left with glowing, long-lasting colour that will see you right throughout the season. Sound like a lot of hassle? If you don’t fancy all the care-taking, or you can’t make up your mind which shade you like best, remember you can always add a splash of colour with temporary hair chalks too!
