Reader Feedback - Color-treated Haircare!

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

This is the first of the five top reader feedback questions (in no particular order) from the Spring Feedback Giveaway!


To be honest, I am not an authority on haircare topics whatsoever. For this question, I sought out the assistance of my friend over at Mischo Beauty, who is an expert at hair related topics! Check out her blog, here :)

Amanda's Q:
"Hi! I'm using Pravana color shampoo and Wella Conditioning Rinse for keeping the peroxide in. Do you know of any other products that might be useful for my burgundy-colored hair?"

Kitiya's Response:
The Pravana Color Ensure Shampoo you are using is great because it is "formulated to maintain the hair color's vibrancy and it gently cleanses without stripping color. UV filters protect hair against color-robbing ultraviolet rays."

Is the Wella Conditioning Rinse a color saving conditioner? If not, you should definitely be using a color saving conditioner as well!

You could try Pravana's Color Ensure Conditioner, which works to detangle, strengthen, add shine and most importantly protect "against color-robbing ultraviolet rays".

Here are additional brands to try:
  • Wella Color Preserve Hydrating Shampoo
  • Wella Color Preserve Hydrating Conditioner
  • Pureology Hydrate Shampoo
  • Pureology Hydrate Conditioner
  • Kerastase Reflection Bain Miroir Shampoo
  • Kerastase Chroma Reflect Masque Conditioner

The brands listed above are all for color-treated hair. Another point to remember is that since your hair is "burgundy-colored", the red hair dye molecules are the smallest of the color molecules and are the easiest to wash out of your hair. So naturally, over time, your color will start to fade. But, if you are consistent with using the color saving shampoo and conditioner, you color will remain vibrant longer.

Thanks to both Amanda for her excellent question, and to Kitiya for her great response!

Any additional questions or comments... post 'em!
