A trip to the salon is a splurge, especially if you have coloured hair but I like to think of a professional cut and colour as an investment. By treating my coloured hair at home in between salon visits, I can help it last as long as possible.
The most crucial part of maintaining the longevity and vibrancy of your hair colour is to use a shampoo that is created especially for colour-treated hair. Man ‘n Tail new colour protect shampoo and conditioner is an inexpensive way to help and a great one to try. The formula contains a blend of essentials oils to nourish and revitalise the hair and scalp. With ingredients such as avocado, olive, soy bean and coconut oil it’s gentle, helps prevents protein loss, protects your colour whilst giving you shiny hair.
If you feel your hair is really dry from colouring like mine often feels, I like to use the Mane ‘n Tail conditioner as a in shower mask. If you’re the type to skip conditioner, break that habit ASAP!
Mane ‘n Tail Detangler
I can not speak highly of this product! If you have long coloured hair like mine that after washing feels like a tangled bush, you must use this! Instantly my hair is more manageable and I can actually brush a comb through it.
Hair Top Tip
If you have dark hair like me and are prone to the blonde going brassy try rinsing out your shampoo or conditioner with cold water. It’s a tip my mother has told me to do, perhaps it’s an old wives tale but this is what I do and the love the results thus far. ease into it with lukewarm water and try to go colder with each wash.
