If you’re a hair colour addict, then you’ll be familiar with the lovely bright shine on your locks a few days after you’ve had it coloured or highlighted. Sadly though, we know it starts to fade – and colouring can also dry out hair over time. Luckily there are plenty of great products out there to help with a bit of tender, loving, hair colour care – we’ve picked a few of our favourites.
Top picks for swishy, shiny hair colour care
From treaty to top bargains – our picks of the best shampoo and conditioner for hair colour care.
John Frieda – Sheer Blonde & Sheer Brunette
Boots, from £5.89
A firm favourite at Average Janes HQ, John Frieda hair colour care is a great treat if you want a bit of an upgrade to your everyday shampoo and conditioner, without breaking the bank. Particularly great to recondition hair after holiday sea and sun, or brighten it up with glossy shine after dull winter days.
L’Oreal Elvive Colour Protect
Superdrug, from £3.99
A bargain buy, easy to pick up from your local supermarket or high street store. L’Oreal Elvive is a fab boost for coloured or highlighted hair from this power-house beauty brand. The conditioner is perfect for adding shine and giving a deep care treatment. Perfect for regular haircare use.
Paul Mitchell, Cruelty Free Duo: Vibrant Color Care
Paul Mitchell, duo for £21
These new Cruelty Free Duos from Paul Mitchell mean you can do a good deed to both animal protection and protecting your hair! 100% of the sales of the Take Home bags goes to Cruelty Free International, supporting their work to end animal experiments. Such a great cause – and on top of that these are gorgeous products which will leave your hair super-smooth and protected from the sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays. Bonus all round!
OGX Lemon Highlights
Boots, from £6.99
We’ll be honest, this one had us hooked from first sniff. Never mind the fact that it really does lift blonde tones – it smells DIVINE. Lemon oil, coconut oil and key lime extract give a gorgeous, exotic scent that will brighten your shower on winter mornings. If you a Boots Advantage Card points stacked up, the OGX range is a great me-time treat!
Label M Honey & Oat
Label M, each £12.95
Finally, Label M are a firm favourite here at Average Janes HQ, getting the hair colour care vote from several of us writers! As one said – “My salon use this and it smells like a dessert on my head”. Plus it has deep-conditioning honey and oat to care for and condition coloured hair. Yum!
