A. I recommend using professional shampoos and conditioners for color treated hair between services. There are many to choose from, but some of my favorites are Matrix Biolage colorcarethérapie, Regis DesignLINE Color Care and Redken Color Extend. All are specifically formulated to help make your color last while adding shine and UV protection. Other things you can do to protect your hue is to cover your hair with a hat when out in intense sunshine. If you do subject your hair to a lot of sunlight, I suggest adding products from the Redken Color Extend Sun line to your routine to help remove chlorine, infuse hair with added UV protection and guard against fading.
