Color Your Hair at Home with Confidence
STEP 3: Keep Color BrightShould I use color-boosting shampoos, conditioners, and other treatments?
Yes, it's crucial. Such treatments are packed with extra-hydrating ingredients such as shea butter and protein to replace lost moisture. By following a regimen that includes products specifically formulated for color-treated hair, you will be able to maintain that first-day vibrancy for even longer.
