6 Color-Enhancing Shampoos That Keep Dyed Hair Vibrant
Stretch your time between salon visits with these shampoos that give dyed and highlighted hair better staying power.
In a perfect world, the richly-pigmented, glossy style you leave the salon with would stay just so until your next visit. Fortunately, these shade-enhancing shampoos can freshen fading and correct brassiness at home. Suds up just once a week, and you'll look like you've been to the salon, even if you barely had time to shower.
Even if you aren't swimming laps in a chlorinated pool, it's common for blonde to veer into brassy or ashy territory. Blonde strands are prone to discoloration since they're so porous. This Pure Blends formula intensifies buttery, golden tones in light, medium, or dark blondes to keep ashiness away while keeping locks soft and hydrated.
Highlights add richness and dimension to hair. They're also a stylish way to minimize the appearance of grays. One downside? Discoloration. A shampoo with blue will tone down brassiness (that unflattering orange cast caused by the sun) in highlighted parts of brown hair.
There are so many things to love about this firey, attention-grabbing hue. The fading that typically happens after only a few washes? Not so much. Reach for a color-boosting shampoo to restore vibrancy when red shades begin to lose their luster.
Plums and Violets
Purple hair colors are trending right now, and whether you embrace lilac locks or opt for a purple-brown hue, color preservation is essential to commit to this more daring look. Replenish purple pigments if they start to wash down the drain after your hair appointment with a color-depositing shampoo.
Cool Blondes and Silvers
We can't get enough of the dyed and natural gray styles populating our Pinterest feeds. Even if you've ditched the dye, gray hair requires some maintenance to help it look its est. Brighten dullness and cool down unwanted warm or golden tones caused by heat or exposure to UV rays with a specially formulated shampoo like Matrix's So Silver.
