Hair colour is the stuff 2000’s teen makeover shows thrive on. As adults (or trying to be) we no longer have to resort to that weird spray-on stuff from Claire’s Accessories or rub coloured chalk onto our precious follicles. Over the past decade, extreme colours and dye techniques have come in and out of vogue – does anyone remember the emo racoon tails? – and we’re here to share with you the best colour protection shampoos according to your hair.
Blonde on Bronde
I love lifting my ‘bronde’ hair with highlights. My problem is that after a few weeks, the once icy blonde turns into a brassy yellow-gold colour. My. Haircare’s Infuse My. Colour Platinum Shampoo is my pick for hair colour protection, it’s a deep violet shade but the good news is that it’s vegan and contains none of the typical nasties, like silicone, sulphates and parabens. After using this for a month, the shampoo neutralised the straw-tones in my hair, resulting in that lovely cool, straight-out-the-salon blonde.
Mostly, I was impressed by how long this bottle lasts and how little you need to use each wash. It has a clean, fresh smell and makes your hair feel soft and silky – even if it is used without a conditioner. If you have bleached or lightened hair, I would really recommend using this as your shampoo, as it’s helped my salon colour to last longer!
