Maintaining colored hair isn’t easy but it is definitely worth all the hard work. In the past, I shared what I use for my pink and blonde hair, but I now have a new addition. Aside from my go-to conditioner and treatments, I also started incorporating a color depositing conditioner into my routine. For anyone who starts to freak out once their hair color starts to fade, these will be your lifesavers. When you start to see your locks becoming dull from washing and exposure to the sun, use this in place of your regular conditioner and you will notice that it will become vibrant again. This is perfect for when you’re in between touch-ups and you want to keep your hair as pristine as possible. Keep reading to find out what I use and other options you can try.
Davines Alchemic Conditioner
During my last touch-up for my pink hair, my hairstylist gave me some of this conditioner to try. It comes in different colors like copper and silver, but I got the red one, which comes off more hot pink. These products will help keep the color vibrant after washing your hair. Leave it in for a few minutes to let the pigments really sink in. Available online.
Overtone Pastel Purple Deep Treatment
If you need more than just conditioning, try this treatment from Overtone. It also comes in different colors like green and orange and with different color intensities. So whether your hair is pastel, vibrant, or extreme, you can keep the shade going with these. Leave it in for 10 to 15 minutes and you will notice an extra jolt of color and moisture. Available online.
One n’ Only Color Depositing Conditioner
Color depositing conditioners also come in shades for more natural dyes like browns. Whether your hair tone is on the burgundy or chocolate side of the spectrum, you’ll find a product for you. To keep the color as natural as possible, you can use this two to three times a week or when you see the color start to fade. Available online.
Christophe Robin Shade Variation Care Nutritive Mask with Temporary Coloring
For those who have more time to spare, try out this hair mask. From copper to warm chestnut and ash brown, you can treat your colored hair. Depending on the color that you get, it can either neutralize brassy tones or pump up color. It is also infused with iris fiorentina buriti oil, which can nourish damaged hair. Available on Sephora PH.
Punky Colour 3-in-1 Color Depositing Shampoo + Conditioner
On the other hand, if you’re in a rush, there’s a shampoo and conditioner combo you can turn to. When hair washing day comes, whip this out to keep your color intense and your locks shiny and moisturized. Try their other colors like yellow, pink, blue, and red. Available on Ulta.
