How to Maintain Coloured Hair

You’ve achieved your perfect hair colour – but what next? Chemically-treated hair often requires a helping hand to stay true and vibrant beyond a few washes. Discover how to preserve multi-dimensional depth and avoid tired-looking tones no matter your chosen shade. From subtle highlights, to bold balayage and even striking, full-head colour, read more and learn how to maintain coloured hair today with Christophe Robin.

What Causes Hair Colour to Fade?

When your hair colour starts to lack vibrancy, look patchy or experience unwanted tones, it’s likely that oxidation is to blame. This is often the result of a variety of contributing factors, including: 

  • Excessive washing
  • Seasonal changes 
  • Hard water 
  • Harsh UV rays 
  • High pH levels 

Oxidation is a process that all with colour-treated or bleached hair endure, especially those who expose their hair to environmental stressors. It is categorised as a loss of pigment in the hair shaft. However, using Christophe Robin’s luxurious, yet effective, Colour Shield Duo can stave off the process of oxidation. Resulting in salon-fresh results that last longer between visits to the stylist.

How to Use the Colour Shield Regimen

Apply a small amount of the Colour Shield Shampoo onto wet hair, lather and rinse thoroughly. After rinsing, follow with the Colour Shield Shampoo.

Once a week use the Christophe Robin Colour Shield Cleansing Mask in place of your regular shampoo for a nourishing boost.

Ingredients Chosen to Care for Coloured Hair

Like all Christophe Robin products, the Colour Shield Regimen is formulated with natural-origin ingredients that are carefully curated to give you the best possible results:

  • Camu-camu: Containing 40 times more Vitamin C than an orange, camu-camu is a fruit native to the Amazon rain forests of Peru, Brazil, Venezuela, and Colombia. With powerful antioxidant properties and the ability to rehydrate dry hair for beautiful softness, camu-camu is a must-have for hair colour protection
  • Macadamia Oil: Rich in fatty acids and potassium, macadamia oil restores moisture to the hair shaft and seals the hair shaft. Leaving you with nourished hair from root to tip.
  • Pomelo Oil: Pomelo extract, rich in malic acid, helps protect against discolouration. Furthermore, it’s anti-microbial, making it suitable for even sensitive scalps. Pomelo oil promotes the transfer of nutrients –such as vitamin C, B1 and B12 – to the hair follicles. Helping to minimise any dryness, tangles, or coarseness.
