There’s nothing quite as transformative as a fresh new hair colour. It has the ability to boost your confidence, and allows you to own your look.

You can keep your colour looking rich and vibrant for longer with professional quality shampoos. In these current times with most of us spending more time at home due to the global pandemic, using professional quality colour treated products is even more vital now to help you preserve your shades vibrancy.

4 reasons to use a colour shampoo

Colour fades with time, so it’s crucial that you apply a colour protecting shampoo and conditioner to protect your shades vibrancy for as long as possible. But with such a minefield of products out there, you may be wondering what to look for when selecting the best shampoo for coloured hair, or even whether it’s worth opting for a professional quality shampoo at all. We’ve compiled a list of four reasons why you absolutely should use a specially formulated colour shampoo after your hair colour treatment.

Protects colour and prevents fading

Nobody wants to colour their hair only for it to fade away and look dull and lacklustre after a few washes. Using a professional quality shampoo for dyed hair will help to maintain the vibrancy for longer. We suggest choosing TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Shampoo which incorporates professional grade technology that can keep your strands looking full of healthy vitality for up to 40 washes.

Kind and gentle to your strands

There’s no avoiding the fact that colour is drying to the hair. Using a colour formulated shampoo and conditioner is a smart way to repair damage due to the gentle ingredients incorporated into our products. TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Shampoo range infuses each strand with lasting moisture and is formulated with natural ingredients like green tea, rosemary and sunflower oil. Protecting your coloured hair will provide it with vibrancy and lasting nourishment.

Enhances shine and gloss

Hair can appear dull and lacking in shine when it’s colour treated, and that’s another reason why using a colour shampoo is so important. Products created specifically for colour treated hair contain special nutrients and moisturising ingredients that enhance shine, giving hair a vibrant finish.

Restores your PH balance

Colour treatments can be very alkaline which opens up the cuticles and can lead to dryness and damage. Are you at a loss on how to treat damaged dyed hair? We recommend seeking a colour shampoo that contains mild and nourishing ingredients, such as TRESemmé Colour Shineplex Shampoo, which is our best sulphate free shampoo for colour treated hair. With a professional quality formula, this shampoo is designed to gently cleanse strands without stripping the colour or natural shine. The result? Colour vibrancy and shine for up to 12 weeks.

So now you know the benefits of using products formulated specifically for colour treated hair, don’t let a good colour go to waste – invest in suitable treatment products. Your hair will benefit from its nourishing properties and your colour will remain vibrant and last the distance, leaving you feeling confident and in control of your own style.
