10 best products for colour-treated hair

Fed up with fading colour and brassy highlights? We look at some hard-working products to keep your perfect shade

You’ve invested precious pounds into dyeing your hair the perfect shade, but, a few weeks later, bleached blonde highlights are turning brassy or your vibrant red colour starts to look washed out.

Unfortunately, coloured hair has many enemies, whether it’s chemical shampoos, chlorine, heat exposure from those straighteners, or just the sun. Thankfully, there are lots of products out there to help give your hair that little extra bit of TLC to keep your colour bright and your locks in good condition.

From L’Oreal to Nicky Clarke, we’ve tried and tested as many as we could get our hands on to find our ten best products for coloured hair.

Verdict:

If you don’t have a lot of spare cash to spend on hair care, L’Oreal Paris’ Elvive Colour Protect Range is our go-to choice for everyday use on any colour hair. But if you’ve got a bit more to invest in maintaining and enhancing that perfect tone, we’d recommend Bed Head Colour Goddess for brunettes and redheads and John Frieda Sheer Blonde for - you’ve guessed it - blondes.
