4 Protective Shampoos to Ensure Your Fabulous Hair Colour Lasts Long

Pamper your colour treated hair with these colour protection shampoos that will not wash away its colour and ensure it stays healthy.

Frequent colour treatments can leave your hair and scalp dehydrated and damaged. Exposing your mane to these harsh dyes and strong chemicals strips it of its natural moisture and sheen. Hence, deep conditioning and nourishing your hair and scalp is essential after a colour treatment for preventing issues like frizz, split ends, and breakage, which are all symptomatic of the damage caused to them structurally. Solution? Using the right shampoo, which has been specifically formulated to care for colour treated hair. These restorative shampoos hydrate and replenish the lost nutrients to leave hair soft and lively once again. So, are some of the finest shampoos we recommend that will revitalise your colour treated tresses and make it smooth and manageable, while preserving its colour.

For Optimal Protection

Schwarzkopf Professional Bonacure pH4.5 Color Freeze Micellar Shampoo

Cruelty-free, this sulphate-free shampoo has special UV filters to shield hair from environmental aggression.


This unique formula with Micellar Technology maintains an ideal pH level of 4.5 to freeze the colour pigments into place firmly. It gently cleanses hair, tightens the hair cuticles for better hold of colour pigments by them, and neutralises any chemical residue left behind after the colour treatment to improve overall health.
