Top 9 Tips on How to Take Care of Colour Treated Hair

At times, we all wish to get our hair coloured and spot the coolest look. While it’s true that opting for a trendy hair-colour can enhance your overall look, you must not disregard the fact that excessive colouring may cause your hair to lose its natural sheen, leaving it dull, dry and damaged. No! We do not intend to discourage you from getting your hair coloured. And with everyone around opting for the most contemporary hair colour trends; from blonde, brunette, platinum hair to dark chocolate, you wouldn’t really want to miss out on the fun. The good news is that you can have the best of both worlds by putting in a little extra effort. With a bit of extra care after colouring your hair, you can keep your tresses moisturized, glossy and in the best shape.

Why Is It Important To Take Care Of Your Hair Post Colour Treatment?

If you fail to take good care of your hair after colouring them, it’s quite possible that your hair-colour may fade quickly. Therefore, it becomes even more important to follow a good hair care regimen, post colour treatment. Besides, taking care of your coloured hair will also ensure that your tresses remain healthy, strong and lustrous.

Before you colour your hair, make sure that you have a proper understanding of how to maintain coloured hair. This will help you with long-lasting colour retention.

Hair Care Tips for Coloured Hair

Let’s have a quick look at some of the most important tips for coloured hair:

1. Wait For 72 Hrs Before Shampooing

A common mistake that people make is that they shampoo their hair too soon after colouring it. In such a scenario, the hair colour may fade. Thus, you must wait for a minimum of 72 hours before shampooing your hair. The longer you wait to shampoo your hair after colouring it, the more time the colour pigment will have to soak into the hair.

2. Use Sulphate-Free Shampoo And Conditioner

Sulphates are harsh cleaning agents that may turn your hair dry and fragile. Besides, sulphates can also cause your hair colour to fade quickly. Therefore, if you wish to keep your hair colour intact, and your hair healthy and glossy, you must consider opting for a sulphate free shampoo and sulphate free conditioner.

3. Add Dye To Your Conditioner

You can keep your hair colour vibrant by adding a few drops of dye to your conditioner. By doing so, you will deposit a small amount of dye into your hair, each time you use your conditioner.

4. Avoid Using Hot Water When Shampooing

Washing your hair with hot water may wash out the colour from your hair. Therefore, one of the most important caring tips for colour treated hair is that you must use cold water to shampoo and condition your hair. Cold water will help seal in the moisture from your conditioner and keep your hair colour intact. Additionally, washing hair with cold water can also help you do away with dull, damaged and frizzy hair.

5. Don’t Wash Your Hair Daily

Overwashing your hair is yet another reason why they become dry and frizzy. Besides, you also wash away a little bit of your hair dye every time you wash your hair. Thus, it is advisable to wash your hair every alternate day or twice a week to keep your hair colour intact.

6. Use Dry Shampoo When You Don’t Wash Your Hair

On days when you don’t wash your hair, try using colour-safe dry shampoos. This will refresh your hair and make it look shinier. You can also consider using colour-tinted dry shampoos to revamp your hair colour without heading to the salon.

7. Use Leave-In Treatments

Leave-in treatments that are colour safe can help keep your hair smooth and moisturized. For best results, you can consider using leave-in treatment that offers UV protection. You won’t have to worry about your hair colour fading while you are out in the sun.

8. Use Heat Protectant Spray Before Using Hot Tools

High heat can damage your hair and cause the hair colour to fade faster. Therefore, irrespective of whether you are blow-drying, straightening, or curling your hair, make sure that you use heat protectant spray beforehand.

9. Use Colour Protecting Shampoo

Ordinary shampoos may contain sulphate or any other harmful chemical that may fade the brilliance of your hair colour. Hence, you must try using colour protecting shampoo that keeps the vibrancy and sheen of your hair colour intact.

Now that you have a fair understanding of how to take care of coloured hair, ensure that you take necessary steps to maintain the radiant shine of your colour-treated hair.

As mentioned earlier, colour protecting shampoos and leave-in treatments can help you with long-lasting colour retention. On that note, let’s have a look at a few sulphate-free hair care products by Godrej Professional that are suitable for colour-treated hair.
