Keep your color protected with these picks.

If you recently traded in your natural hair color for a different shade, it’s important to consider whether or not the hair care products you’ve been using are suited for your new hair. Regardless of the hue you’ve transitioned to, if you have colored-treated hair, it’s a good idea to switch up your hair care routine. Despite the temptation to stick with what you know, your go-to shampoo might not be a color-safe shampoo, meaning it might not meet your new hair needs. So below, we’re sharing our best shampoos (and conditioners) for color-treated hair along with the best hair care products to pair with them. Plus, we’ve got tips for styling and caring for your newly color-treated tresses.
