The 18 best shampoos for colored hair

*Review of the best according to the editorial board. About the selection criteria. This material is subjective, not an advertisement and is not a guide to purchase. It requires a consultation with a professional before it can be purchased.

Leaving the salon, every girl dreams that this beautiful shimmering color will last longer. But, as is often the case, after just a few weeks, the shine fades, the color fades, and you start thinking about dyeing again. With the right cleanser, you can preserve the original color over a longer period of time, while restoring and strengthening tired, damaged locks.

How to choose a shampoo for colored hair

Hair colouring is an aggressive process that not only changes the color of the hair, but also its structure and makes it porous. Using the proper shampoo is the foundation of a good haircare system.

Recommendations on shampoo choice and its rational use were given by Ekaterina Logunova, M-Cosmetics expert. According to her, special attention should be given to the curls in the first two weeks after dyeing, when the color is at its brightest and the pigment is particularly vulnerable to sunlight and damage from external factors. At this time, it is still fixed in the scales. In the following weeks, the color will already begin to come off on its own, then you can return the basic habitual care for the type of curls.

According to the expert’s opinion, you should choose shampoos from the professional shampoo line. Suitable for all hair types, for regular use. These products have the gentlest formulas that are not harmful to the health of the strands and scalp, they have a higher quality composition compared with masmarket. There really aren’t many criteria to choose from:

  1. The absence of sulfates prolongs the longevity of the color, but such shampoos often foam a little worse than conventional ones;
  2. The presence of natural ingredients such as plant extracts and oils nourishes and restores the hair structure much more effectively than synthetic ones.

Professional shampoos have a complex effect on the hair – they soften, close scales, add shine, moisturize and protect against premature loss of pigment. Products from the masmarket hairdressers and colorists are not recommended for use because of the more aggressive effect and relatively low efficiency.

Cosmetic manufacturers produce separate shampoo lines for colored hair, which fix and do not let the pigment wash out, prevent burnout in the sun, nourish and moisturize, prevent the formation of static electricity and split ends. We have included these products in the rating, which will help you to make the right choice among the variety of products offered to customers.
