These Are The Best Products To Use If You Have Bleached Or Colored Hair

They’ll keep your expensive dye job intact for longer.

Coloring your hair is a great way to express yourself and show off your personal style, but your everyday hair care routine could be messing up the color and health of your tresses. We all know that dyeing your hair damages it, so it’s important to make sure your routine extends the life of your dye job and nourishes brittle strands.

Avoid washing your hair every day and use sulfate-free products, since sulfates can dry out your hair and make the color fade quicker. Instead, look for products packed with ingredients like coconut oil, argan oil, and keratin to help moisturize and nourish your ‘do. Below, we suggest the hair care routines to follow if you have colored or bleached locks. 

The Recommended Routine for Colored Hair

  1.  Wash your hair every other day.

    When you wash your hair, you run the risk of fading your color and drying out your strands. Limit how often you wash your hair, and when you do, apply your shampoo to just your scalp so that you avoid stripping your tresses of moisture.

  2. Use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner.

    Sulfates are detergents that make your shampoos lather and foam up, but they can also fade your color and overclean your hair, making it dull and dry. Using sulfate-free products will help lock in both your hair color and the moisture. 

  3. Do a hair mask once a week.

    After a hard week, your hair definitely needs some TLC. Washing and styling can do some serious damage to your colored hair, so use a mask once a week to deeply hydrate and replenish your locks. Doing this on Sundays can also help prep your hair for the week to come. 

The Recommended Routine For Bleached Hair

When you bleach your hair, you’re actually stripping off the external layer and pigment of each strand. Because of this, it can be super damaging to your hair, causing it to be dry, brittle, and prone to breakage and split ends. Try out this routine to give your bleached ‘do all the help it needs:

  1. Use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner.

    Bleach lifts the cuticle of your hair to remove the pigment—but this also keeps removes moisture. Not only that, but the cuticle can stay lifted and lead to more moisture loss. Don’t aggravate it with shampoos formulated with sulfates—go for a sulfate-free formula instead. Avoid shampooing your hair every day as well, just so you don’t dry out your tresses.

  2. Use a purple shampoo once a week.

    Avoid brassiness by using a purple shampoo to tone your hair. This is especially important if you’re sporting a platinum color. It’s also a quick and easy way to keep your hair looking naturally blonde without making an appointment with your colorist.

  3. Use dry shampoo between washes.

    If your scalp is feeling greasy, don’t let washing your hair be your go-to solution since this can dry out your tresses. Instead, get rid of oils by using dry shampoo. This will help refresh your hair and extend your wash without stripping it of moisture.
