How To Pick the Right Shampoo for color Treated Hair

If you color your hair you likely know how important it is to choose a color safe shampoo after you leave the salon. color safe shampoos will help preserve your hair, make your color look brighter, and improve the overall quality of your hair.

After a trip to the salon we all have different concerns when it comes to our hair. It all comes down to our hair type as well as what we got done to our hair at the salon. Lucky for you, Matrix has a ton of options, so no matter what your hair concern is, we have a shampoo to help you! I chatted with expert stylist Pamela Walmsley to find out which shampoos are best for color treated hair!

If your main concern is your color fading, Pamela suggests opting for a color protecting shampoo. Our Biolage ColorLast Shampoo is inspired by nature’s fade-defying orchid. This shampoo helps maintain your hair’s color depth, tone, and shine giving you salon-vibrant color for up to 9 weeks! Our Total Results Color Obsessed Shampoo contains antioxidants to help protect your hair against fading. It extends the life of your color vibrancy and gives your hair shine too! And last but not least, our R.A.W. Color Care Shampoo works to gently rebalance color treated hair's pH levels at home! Our shampoo’s vegan formula is 86% natural origin and contains no silicones, no sulfates, and no parabens. So, you can get healthy hair with a vibrant shine without compromise!

If you recently went blonde, brassiness is likely a huge concern for you. Unwanted brass is the downside to going blonde, but we have some amazing shampoos to help banish those orangey tones! If you’re a brunette who has gone blonde or even added some highlights you will need to stay on top of your color. Our Brass Off Shampoo is perfect for fixing brassy tones but also preventing them from coming back. The shampoo works by depositing blue-violet pigments to your hair to reduce those unwanted brassy tones. There are couple of different ways to use this shampoo too, depending on what your hair needs. The purple shampoo can be washed out immediately or else Pamela suggests "leaving it in for a few minutes to maximize the toning for really brassy hair or to create/maintain the super ashy trend that is popular now".

Those with icy blonde or platinum blonde hair will love our Total Results Color Obsessed So Silver Shampoo. It works to neutralize brassy tones on both blonde and grey hair! This shampoo is a bit more intense than our Brass Off collection so you’ll need to wear gloves when applying it to your hair. The formula gets left on for 3-4 minutes and then gets rinsed out. It’s a bit more time consuming to use, but it really doesn’t take that much longer and you’re getting really impressive results! This one is perfect if you’ve had unwanted brass for a while and are looking for serious help.

Luckily though, all Matrix shampoos are color safe though, so no matter what hair concern you have, you can target it while still ensuring that your color looks its’ best!
