When you finally get that amazing hair color that you’ve always wanted, it only makes sense to take good care of it! Most hair color will fade eventually, but with the right salon-grade products, you can keep it looking fresh for weeks. Here at TouchUps Salon in Chandler, AZ, we use products from Davines, Coppola Keratin Complex, and Olaplex; most of which are made for use with colored hair!
We typically encourage our clients to take home some hair care products with them in order to help them maintain their beautiful hair color in-between visits, but why is using good product important? Does it really make a difference in your hair’s health or the life of your hair color?
Good product is half the battle…
Whether you are constantly bleaching out your roots to keep your platinum blonde pristine, getting a fancy balayage, or just covering up some gray roots; dying your hair often can cause serious damage. Using bleach on your hair will cause it to feel dry and brittle, and it may cause breakage if not used correctly! In order to correct the dryness and prevent breakage, you’ll need to use a nice deep conditioner or hydrating treatment at home before and after your appointments.
If you’re a fan of being a redhead, wearing fantasy color, or just want to keep your fresh hair color looking great for as long as possible, having color safe shampoo and conditioner is a MUST! Nobody wants to walk around with dull, faded hair color, and the only way to prevent that is to invest in worthy hair product.
So, without further ado, here are our top 7 products for colored hair!!!
1.- MINU Shampoo & Conditioner
MINU Shampoo is one of our best selling products here at our Chandler, Arizona location, and it’s for good reason! This Davines staple is gentle, hydrating, enhances shine, and is completely color safe. This shampoo was my go-to when I was a redhead, and it helped me avoid a LOT of fading!
MINU was designed using caper blossom extract to help maximize the life of your hair color as well as add shine. This shampoo smells fantastic, and a little bit goes a long way!
The perfect partner for this beautiful shampoo is none other than the MINU conditioner. Specifically designed to compliment the functions of the shampoo, this conditioner will increase shine, softness, and keep your hair color locked in.
2.- MINU Hair Mask
The MINU Hair Mask is the real kicker of the MINU line! This deep conditioner will improve the life of your hair color by keeping it hydrating, soft, and silky. Not to mention the SHINE you’ll get from only using this product once a week!
That’s right, it’s not even an everyday use product. Throw this deep conditioner into damp hair after you’ve shampooed and conditioned, let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes, and then rinse it out. You can also leave it in overnight; whatever you find works best for you!
3.- NOUNOU Shampoo and Conditioner
NOUNOU shampoo and conditioner is the perfect set for all of our blonde friends out there! This set is also your perfect match if you use relaxers or perm your hair. NOUNOU is wonderful at healing damage from heat and chemical processing. Both products are formulated to rebuild proteins in your hair that keep it feeling soft and luscious!
These two products utilize Fiaschetto Tomato extract to boost their antioxidant properties as well as nourishing capabilities! NOUNOU is a huge favorite for both clients and stylists here at the salon, and we use it daily.
We use this shampoo and conditioner set a lot because we do a TON of balayages and highlights, and these products are designed for brittle and processed hair. Our clients keep coming back for them because they smell AMAZING and make their hair feel the healthiest it’s ever been!
4.- Oi Oil
Oi Oil is a MUST HAVE product for everyone, except for those that have extra fine hair. (Sad day, but we have other fun things for you!) The magical ingredient in Oi Oil is called Roucou oil, which produces shine and softness! The reason this is on our list for products for colored hair is because it’s an amazing leave-in moisturizer that we use on almost every client we see.
Oi Oil helps your hair dry quickly, which helps with avoiding heat damage, and makes styling incredibly easy. It’s so light that it won’t suck the volume out of your hairstyles, and you only need 4 to 6 pumps for a silky smooth look. This oil also provides UV protection to keep your hair color from fading too terribly in the sun!
5.- Oi All in One Milk
Oi All in One Milk is one of the only products we carry that we can recommend to every client. It’s a fabulous leave-in conditioner, detangler, heat protectant, and it smells SO good! If you do not have a heat protectant at home and blow dry or use a hot tool everyday, this would be a great investment! Oi All in One Milk is great for our colored hair friends because it keeps your hair silky smooth and protects from further damage.
Just like the Oi Oil, the All in One Milk provides a little bit of UV protection, and if you’re an avid swimmer, it can help protect your hair from the chlorine in the pool! (Check out our guide for summer hair care HERE!)
6.- Infusion Keratin Replenisher
Class, does anybody know what keratin is? Keratin is a protein that forms the structure of your hair! (Very good, class. Gold stars for everyone.) The Infusion by Coppola Keratin Complex is a leave-in conditioner fights off frizz, cuts down blow-dry time, and replenishes moisture and shine.
We love this product because it’s lightweight, and it hydrates and smooths the hair during a blow-dry or heat styling! We recommend this to our clients with colored hair, but also to our curly haired friends. Keratin products are wonderful at helping to repair damage and keep your hair feeling fancy.
7.- Olaplex No. 3
Olaplex No. 3 is a deep conditioning treatment unlike any other. The focus of Olaplex is repair, so it’s often a product that we recommend for balayage and blonde clients! This is a color safe treatment, so if you like to wear fantasy color but find your hair a little brittle and dry, this is a must have.
Here at our Chandler, AZ location we offer a take home bottle of Olaplex (pictured above), and we also offer an Olaplex treatment in the chair. If you’ve had a bad salon experience where a stylist has fried off your hair, this is the product that will quickly help reverse the damage. Just like the MINU Hair Mask, you can use this once a week, and you only need a small amount! Apply this to damp hair, leave it in for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse.
