SINGAPORE – When I coloured my hair last December, I faced a steep hair care learning curve when it comes to maintaining my tresses. My hairstylist drilled in me the importance of hair care products in order to maintain the colour and keeping my hair from being too frizzy or dry. Simply put: coloured hair just needs some extra TLC.
So how do you keep your hair colour fresh – and your hair smooth and non-frizzy?
The easiest step is to wash your hair less as this reduces the colour from fading. The best way is to just wash your twice or thrice in a week, but living in such a humid climate like ours, this would pose a challenge.
Pick the right shampoo: Colour protective shampoos were created for a reason. These products normally contain formulas such as low-to-no sulfates and parabens that actually work to protect your hair and keeping it soft and silky – without washing away your hair colour down the drain.
Add a conditioner to your routine. Believe me, this is a lifesaver. Coloured hair tends to be more fragile, and if your colourist does a whack job, your tresses can become brittle over time. Protect your hair with conditioners that contain hair polymers and hydrating elements for a lasting colour.
if you blow-dry your hair frequently, be sure to use a heat protecting spray. The spray acts as a protective barrier against heat that can further dry your hair.
Lastly, if you're very diligent, add a hair mask that can supercharge your hair with some added nourishment.
Here are some hair colour products you should add to your beauty routine.
