1. Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Blooming Colour Shampoo

Keep your colored hair well-maintained with Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Blooming Colour Shampoo. As its name says, it has murumuru butter, which is known for its moisturizing ingredients. It makes your hair soft, so your colored hair don’t become stiff. This shampoo also has the fragrance of Bulgarian rose, so every bath becomes a refreshing experience.

This shampoo for colored hair is also sulfate-free, which is what you should be looking for when shopping for colored hair products. Sulfates are harsh on colored hair and may cause your hair color to fade. With this shampoo, your balayage or ombre hair is safe, so switch to this once you have your hair dyed.

2. Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Blooming Colour Conditioner

Complement your shampoo for colored hair with a conditioner that works just as well. Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Blooming Colour Conditioner gives your hair a boost of nourishment and let the moisture sink in. It helps keep your hair vibrant and healthy and preventing it from looking dull and damaged.

3. Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream

Whether you have colored hair or not, this is a must-have. Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream helps make your hair soft and smooth. When you feel like your hair is becoming dry in the middle of the day, simply apply a drop of this product to refresh your tresses. It also adds shine to your locks, so you can say goodbye to dull hair. Applying leave-on cream is also a healthy addition to your hair care routine, aside from switching to shampoo for colored hair.

Take a break from your naturally dark tresses and go as light as platinum blonde. Even morenas can rock this hair color, so don’t be afraid to try it when you have medium skin tone.

2. Brown

Brown hair color never goes out of style. It adds warmth to your skin. Plus, it glows when hit by sunlight! Don’t forget to make your brown hair shiny by applying hair serum and getting hair mask treatments.

3. Blonde ombre hair

Pinays can rock blonde ombre, too! If you have long hair, start with a medium shade of brown near your roots, then go lighter as you go down the tips of your hair. Use hair conditioner daily and focus on conditioning mid-length down to your roots to keep your hair from drying out.

4. Multi-colored hair

If you can’t choose just one hair color, go for two or more! Just make sure the colors complement each other so you’ll still have a cohesive look.

5. Purple

Now that you know what shampoo for colored hair to pick, you’ll be able to take care of your colored hair more. Have fun experimenting with different hair colors! Just don’t forget to practice the must-do hair care habits that come with it.
