Colour treated hair tends to need a little more TLC. To keep your colour vibrant and ensure your hair is healthy and suitably nourished, your choice of product is very important when caring for coloured hair.

In addition to using hydrating conditioners and colour-reviving treatments, selecting the best shampoo for coloured hair is vital step in any haircare routine for dyed hair.

Shampoos that contain sulphates can strip the colour from your hair or leave your locks dry and unmanageable. Shampoos specially formulated to take care of colour-treated hair, work to revive your colour while adding a gorgeous luminosity to your hair when cleansing. Colour safe shampoos can also be used on normal hair that hasn't been dyed.

Which Sulphates Should Not Be In Colour-safe Shampoos?

Be sure to check your shampoo is Sulphate Free, particularly from Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES). Other ingredients such as parabens, phthalates and triethanolamine (TEA) should also be avoided. Although they help lather the shampoo, they can strip the hair of natural oils and degrade colour. While using Sulphate-free shampoos can help preserve colour vibrancy, they do tend to leave more build-up over time. Adding a clarifying shampoointo your haircare routine will keep your hair in tip-top condition.
