How To Care for Coloured Hair at Home
Anyone with coloured hair knows that bleached or dyed tresses require a little bit of extra TLC. To ensure your blonde stays bright, your brunette looks deep and rich and every colour in between stays fresh and shiny, it's important to regularly treat your hair to maintain its health.
- Sydney, 9 September 2020 - By Irene Falcone -
Coloured hair needs special treatment as the chemicals in many dye products can damage the hair shaft and leave it prone to dryness, breakage, frizziness, or a coarse texture, so it's worth investing in quality, natural hair care products to ensure you are keeping any additional nasty chemicals or toxins away from your already vulnerable locks.
Healthy hair holds onto its colour and lustre, so it's essential that you give your hair the care it so needs. With the right products and special care, including shampoo and conditioner for dyed hair specifically, you can minimise these side effects and enjoy strong, shiny hair in the colour of your dreams.
Read on for our edit of the best natural hair colour products and our tips on how to take care of coloured hair at home.
