Choose shampoos, conditioners, and masks wisely, i.e. depending on your hair type. You can use the Godrej Professional Keracare range of professional shampoos and sulphate free conditioners as they are sulphate-free and also suitable for colour-treated hair.

2. Use Heat Protectant Products

Heating tools such as flat irons, curlers, blow-dryers, etc., can damage colour-treated hair and reduce the natural sheen of your locks. Therefore, try opting for a heat-free hairstyle as much as possible. Moreover, to keep your tresses glossy and smooth, you can apply heat-protectant products such as the Godrej Professional hair serum for frizzy hair to your locks before using any heating tools.

3. Avoid Over-Shampooing Your Hair

Over-shampooing drains away the natural moisture from your hair, making it all dry and frizzy. Additionally, the more you shampoo your hair, the earlier your highlights will fade. Thus, it is advisable to skip washing your hair every day; instead, you can consider washing your hair twice or thrice a week. For the best results, opt for Godrej shampoo for coloured hair by Godrej Professional.
