I'm looking for a good conditioner for colour treated hair - I really want to keep it soft and supple. I just got my hair dyed two days ago, and the base shade is now four shades up from where I was originally, and I have blonde highlights in that are six shades above my natural hair colour. It's a little dry right now, and I really would like to eliminate that feeling. My stylist recommended Aveda Blue Malva Conditioner (to condition and keepy brassiness away), but I go to an Aveda concept salon so of course she would recommend that. I may get that, but I'd like to consider other options first. I have moderately thick but semi-fine hair that takes to procedures really well - apparently my hair's very responsive. Anyway, if there's anymore information needed, just ask. Thanks. I really want to get my hair conditioned...this feeling is slightly irritating. :P
i just use the Dove or Korres hair mask for treated hair instead of normal conditioner every single time i shampoo.
it's a trick my hairdresser suggested, but i just treat the mask conditioner, i do not leave it on for the normally suggested time.
another trick for treated hair is laurel oil that i leave on hair for half an hour before shampoo, it is fantastic, i guess you can get it from aromatotherapy or pharmachies
when my hair gets a bit split and i need a trim but dont have time.....i soak in in olive oil for about 10 minutes then shampoo it all out
it leaves your hair amazing.......people always stroke my hair
but make sure you COMPLETELY shampoo the oil out or it will be a disaster
I'm not sure if it's sold outside of the U.S. but the ARTec color line is really good. I don't use it myself but my mom used to work with the guy who created it and she swears by it. It comes in all different formulas for different colors and it's supposed to lengthen the time your color stays by depositing color to enhance.
Sebastian Laminates has this deep conditioning mask that does wonders for my color-treated, uber-damaged hair. My hairstylist recommended it to me, it's not to expensive like $10-15. SO worth it it turns my hair from fried to silk, which is no small task.
