I've been coloring my hair for years now, and no matter what shampoo/conditioner I bought, the color always seemed to bleed and fade way before my next appointment. This last time I saw a different stylist because I moved to a new area, and she recommended TIGI's S Factor because it contains no sulfates. Which, if you look at the ingredients in most color care shampoos vs. Regular care, they all contain at least two. By not having any sulfate in the shampoo or conditioners it doesn't chemically break down the color in your hair, therefore leaving it feeling soft and just as vibrant as the day you got it colored. I've been using the S Factor line for about 4 months now, and haven't been disappointed. And the smell is an amazing fruity scent. Another product I use is the leave in moisture serum with sunflower seed extract. My hair never gets that "crunchy" feel to it, and is always silky smooth. Since they're salon products, they're a little more expensive, averaging approximately $25 a piece for the smaller size. My hair length is just below the bottom of my shoulder blades, and my shampoo/conditioner lasts me about 5-6 weeks. It's definitely worth every penny to me, and I'll use it as long as it's available. I hope this helps. Good luck! :)
Loreal shampoo and Olive oil shampoo
The best really varies from person to person depending on their personal reaction to the shampoo. You want something gentle, with the ability to add moisture. Buying something that says "for color treated hair" on the bottle doesn't mean it'll actually be the best thing for your hair. Start with something gentle, and inexpensive, and you'll have to experiment. Don't glop on the conditioner, and make sure to really rub it in your ends. If you get out of the shower and your tips are the first things to dry, your conditioner isn't good. Your roots should dry first. Healthy tips retain the moisture. Stay away from "clarifying" shampoos as they'll just strip your hair. Start with some good standard products. Suave just came out with a professional line that's pretty good. Use a normal hair grade to start, and adjust as your hair does. You don't need to spend $20 on a 12 oz bottle of Paul Mitchell for "colored hair" just because you think you need to. If you're using a drug-store dye, your hair is going to fade - that's the quality of product you've bought. A nice keratin oil for your tips goes a long way, color treated or not. And if you're having a hard time finding something that works, just go to a GOOD salon and get some professional advice (and I don't mean Great Clips - spend a good $50 for that advice).
I am a dark Red and my stylist in Newport Beach California recommended LoK Dry Shampoo and their Color Protection Shampoo and conditioner. I have basically cut my washing in half, and use the Dry Shampoo in between and it takes away all the oil in my hair;...I love it! Totally addicted to it! My color doesn not fade anymore.
I have bright red hair, and I use baby shampoo.
You need to use shampoo and conditioner that say on the bottle for color treated hair because shampoo that doesn't say that could have an ingredient that could fade your color.
Femina's website had an article on beauty products where it suggested that Loreal's products are the best one to use... I've, myself, used Wella...
