Why does colour fade?

Beautiful, cared-for hair can still be affected by colour fade. The real question – how fast is your hair colour fading? And what can be done to keep your beautiful, vibrant colour lasting longer?  

Your day-to-day routine may contribute to the rate at which your hair colour fades; over-washing hair, external aggressors and harsh products can all strip colour. Curious about the best, most efficient way to stop red hair colour from becoming dull and fading? Simply reach for an at-home overtone for red hair between colour treatments.

Reasons for colour fade:

  • Over-washing
  • Hard water
  • Harsh products
  • No UV protection
  • City Pollution
  • Colour processing time
  • Hot styling tools
  • Infrequently colouring

Why use a colour protect shampoo and conditioner and not a regular duo? This innovative colour-shielding duo protects against colour fade with its antioxidant ingredients derived from Vitamin E and Vitamin C, protecting coloured hair from external aggressors.

  • Camu Camu (high in Vitamin C) nourishes hair for beautiful softness
  • Pomelo is rich in malic acid, helping to protect against discolouration
  • Crambe oil enhances colour so it appears more vibrant

It’s the best shampoo and conditioner for red hair as it protects against outside aggressors and it will help achieve luminous, beautiful and intense colour over time.

Looking for an anti dandruff shampoo for coloured hair?

With frequently colour treatments, it’s important to understand why scalp care is necessary. The chemicals in frequently colour treatments can make the scalp more irritated, flaky and sensitive afterwards. Often neglected, the scalp also requires special care and attention, all the more so since it plays a vital role in the hair’s health and beauty.

The Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt provides an anti dandruff shampoo for coloured hair by exfoliating and soothing the scalp. A luxurious post-colour treatment for sensitive scalps.
