People in particular, women, have been coloring their hair going back to ancient times. Whether it is for an expression of style, for beauty, or to cover grey hair, hair coloring has been an important part of expression and style. Over hundreds if not thousands of years, hair coloring has evolved and changed both in process and in materials. One thing remains the same however, and that is the importance of making sure your hair stays healthy throughout the process of coloring it. Especially for people who color their hair on a consistent basis, hair can become dry and damaged from repeated color treatments. Without proper care, hair that has been colored can also become dull and lose the color the person was trying to achieve quicker than they would like.

They offer both a shampoo and conditioner color protector. In addition to using their products, there are also a number of additional steps and measures you can take to keeping your colored hair vibrant and healthy. Perhaps most importantly for color treated hair is to shampoo your hair less frequently and make sure to not shampoo your hair for 48 hours after a color treatment. When you do shampoo, always condition it as well. When you are washing your hair make sure to turn down the water temperature, hot water can be damaging to hair. Try washing your hair with the water at room temperature. Try a deep conditioner every few weeks without shampooing your hair first. Shampoo can take more color out of the hair that just a conditioner will not do. Lastly, do not color your hair too frequently. Once every five to six weeks, or longer, is best to achieve healthy hair.
