Choose products specifically designed for color-treated hair
Finding a high-quality color care shampoo and conditioner is the first step in your quest to repair and restore your hair’s health following a dye treatment. Using a product specifically designed for color-treated hair will help preserve your hair’s moisture and vibrancy.

This double duty keratin smooth color system locks in smoothness and keeps color-treated hair healthy and deeply nourished.
To further enhance color, make sure you condition every time you shampoo.

Look for a product, like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Color Conditioner, that’ll restore shine, leaving your tresses with a luscious, healthy texture. Specially designed with anti-fade technology it prolongs color vibrancy for up to 60 days, meaning you can extend the time between color appointments!

Use a deep conditioning treatment

Style your bleached hair with care
Now that your hair is washed and treated, here are some tips on how to dry and style it safely and gently.
Step 1: Minimize frizz
To dry hair gently and minimize frizz, use a cotton T-shirt or a towel made from non-abrasive fibers – such as a microfiber towel. Want to go a step further? Avoid breakage and wake up to healthier hair by wrapping it in a satin scarf or sleeping on a silk pillowcase.
Step 2: Be gentle with your hair
To minimize damage, refrain from rough drying your hair. Instead, dry in sections and apply soft gentle strokes with your fingers from root to tip to avoid unnecessary breakage.
Step 3: Take a break from hot tools
Try heat-free styling tools, like flexi rods and headbands, instead of using your flat iron or curling wand.Still want to use your blow-dryer? Select the low heat or cool air settingto minimize heat damage.
Step 4: Always use heat protection
Blow dry hair with a heat protective product like TRESemmé Thermal Creations Protective Spray, that softly coats the hair and provides lightweight hold as you style. Its advanced formula will help restore vibrancy and shine to damaged, color-treated hair.
Andif you choose to use a flat iron, always safeguard your hair. Try TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Defense Spray to protect it against the damaging effects of heat styling and reduce frizz.
To keep your locks healthy, head to the salon every 6-8 weeks for a trim to remove split ends. If you’re growing your hair, aim for a trim every 8-12 weeks.
