Special care for colour-treated hair
Without a lot of TLC, colour-treated hair becomes dry, dull, and unhealthy. To maintain your colour and glossy shine and to keep up your hair’s strength and elasticity, follow these easy tips.
Invest in the Right Products
It’s important to buy products that are designed for colour-treated hair. With their intense moisturizing formulas, these colour-treated products replenish your vibrant shine without stripping colour. Plus they have UV filters that protect your hair from sun damage. Try L’Oréal Paris Colour Radiance Shampoo to cleanse and revive colour every other day and L’Oréal Paris Colour Radiance Conditioner every day to smooth and detangle hair.
Be Careful When Wet
Hair is delicate when wet, so it is important to be gentle and conscientious when you wash it. Shampoo and condition gently to avoid breakage or disruption of haircolour. To leave your hair sleek and smooth, it is best to use warm water and rinse with cool water to seal the cuticle. Blot your hair dry instead of shaking, rubbing, or twisting it, and for soft, supple hair, use a wide-tooth comb when separating strands.
Make sure not to overdry when blow-drying. Leaving your hair slightly damp will hydrate it and prevent static.
Avoid Outside Dangers
UV rays from the sun dry out hair and fade colour. To maintain shine, find products with UV filters, which keep your hair protected from the sun. An easy way to protect your hair is to use L’Oréal Paris Colour Radiance Protecting Mask once a week. Try to keep out of extensive sunlight and stay away from pool water—the chlorine can change your colour and may even make it green. If you have to swim, wear a cap to protect your hair. If you are going outside, a great way to prevent exposure from free radicals is to spray L’Oréal Paris Colour Radiance Protecting Detangling Spray.
Touch Up to Keep Colour Fresh
Begin a regular colour cycle. To ensure that your haircolour stays beautiful and consistent, it’s a good idea to touch up your roots every four to six weeks. For a flawless touch up, use your L’Oréal Paris shade to achieve a perfect match.
