Shampoo and Conditioner for Color-treated hair

Anybody have any good recommendations? Looking for something that helps with breakage as well as I have a lot. Thanks.

Re: Shampoo and Conditioner for Color-treated hair

There are so many varieties out there now for color treated hair. I like Pantene for red hair (I have), thermasilk, Avon's line for color treated.

My hair is red too. When I used the Pantene Expressions, my hair fell out, so watch that one! I have some hair loss anyway from a medication I take, but the Pantene REALLY made it fall out. I thought Thermasilk was for permed hair. Does it help with breakage? My sister-in-law sells Avon so I could look at one of her books. Thanks.

Re: Shampoo and Conditioner for Color-treated hair

No, Thermasilk isn't just for permed hair. I have heavy thick hair that I blow dry everyday (just about anyways). It is for heat treated hair. I like the Moisture Infusing one. Leaves my hair "silky soft," ha ha sounds like a commercial. I really like the Avon, but only get it when it is on sale. I have about 4 shampoos in my shower right now. Can you tell I like products, lol?

Re: Shampoo and Conditioner for Color-treated hair

Kittywitty,

You may need a hair trim to get rid of the breakage. Sometimes, this requires quite a bit of length cut off (if your hair is long). I use Garnier Fructis and follow up with the Aussie three minute miracle reconstruction. Both smell great!

Oh, yeah, that Garnier Fructis smells great and is in a pretty package, but that's about it. When I used the one for color-treated hair, it made my hair fall out. I recently gave it to my sister-in-law and nieces since they color their hair, and they had hairloss from it, too. However, they use the long and strong one and have no problems with it at all. I'm done with Garnier Fructis. As for hair cuts/trims, I get it cut every eight weeks, right after or before my color. I've used Aussie products before, but not in a long time.

Re: Shampoo and Conditioner for Color-treated hair

U could go to a salon and get some shampoo and conditoner for color treated hair. ( Martix's, Logolicals, Paul Mitchell also has color treated shampoo and conditoner) Some of the stuff they sell on T.V. really doesn't work for your hair. I really sugguest to go to a salon that sells products.

I've used Matrix products, which is the maker of Logics (also used) and they've worked well in the past. Not everything in the salon works for me, though. One time I got something called Fashionista by Cat, horrible stuff. It made my hair like straw, and it's dry to begin with. I just got my hair colored yesterday at the salon and I bought something called Trauma Treatment by L`Anza that my hairdresser highly recommended. It's a leave-in conditioner for color-treated hair that's supposed to help with breakage. For now, I'm going to use Loreal Vive shampoo for dry, color-treated hair, which my previous hairdresser recommended, until I find something else. My current hairdresser has suggested Goldwell products, which is the brand of color she uses on my hair. Right now they're out of the shampoo and conditioner, but they'll be getting some more in next week.

Re: Shampoo and Conditioner for Color-treated hair

Well, the Trauma Treatment by L`Anza turned out to be a flop. I used it today and it did absolutely nothing for my hair, it was like putting water on it. So I took it back and got my money back. $24. That was real waste.

Anyway, I went to Sally's Beauty Supply today, took back the Motions products because the shampoo faded my color. I bought some other shampoo for color-treated hair by Ion called 'Color Defense Protective Shampoo'. So, we'll see how this one works out.

Re: Shampoo and Conditioner for Color-treated hair

The Garnier line is excellent I have found. They have an excellent long and strong line and color treated line. For best results get both the shampoo and conditioner to use at the same time.

Arrow Re: Shampoo and Conditioner for Color-treated hair

Hey, I have a product that I really like to use for detangling, as well as stronger hair...that Garnier lotion squirt, it's a great detangler! It works Very Well!!!
It also makes your hair more elastic like, also Pantene is good, or Biologe (sp?) is very good for color treated hair, and also the Garnier hair shampoo,(it has citrus in it, which I think is pretty wonderful, because it lightens your hair,and the citrus is great for your scalp as well! (Oh, also vinegar is great for your scalp as well)!There are a lot of good shampoos that are good to use, and you should just try one, and see how you feel about the feel of it on your scalp, or hair, and how healthy your hair feels after washing and drying.
One thing that I do, partly because everytime I got a hair drier, they broke like right away(in my old apartment) I got used to Not dryi
ing my hair, and it is actually better for your hair not to blow dry that much, or at all!
Less dry hair, less split ends!

nightowl2
The Garnier hair lotion is really great for that!

Uh, no thanks. I used both the shampoo and conditioner for color-treated hair and it made my hair fall out. The same thing happened to my sister-in-law and my niece with it. They do like the long and strong line, though. However, no more Garnier for me!

Re: Shampoo and Conditioner for Color-treated hair

I use Brilliant by Aveda...love it! I have heavily highlighted hair and the color stays beautifully. You'll have to buy it at an Aveda Salon. I don;t use a conditioner but I do use a detangler before combing it out. My hair is thick and porous and it gets too gunky from conditioners.

Re: Shampoo and Conditioner for Color-treated hair

I am surprised that the shampoo made your hair fall out, WOW!
Have you gone to see a doctor about that? Because you could have a serious scalp/hair problem....just wondering...partly because I used to have semi-thick hair, my friends used to love to comb my hair out and braid it into tiny little braids, until I noticed a first symptom before the hair problem(or maybe I never noticed and it was happening anyways!) but, first I had painful joints, and I was feeling lethargic alot of the time, and then one day, I looked into the mirror, and thought it was an "optical illusion", I had some bald spots(now it also could be genetic too, not sure) but, I went to several doctors, insisting that I be tested and checked over and over. which they finally did(I had one doctor who said to me"just eat fresh vegy's and fruit, and your problem will go away,but, if it doesn't, then I will get you a specialist)! Well, I ended up seeing the specialist after all, and it turned out that I have mild lupus, and mild fybromyalgia(I am STILL having a hard time believing that fibro' is actually a "real" disease! But, one of the symptoms is hair loss)! Hence my story...so you might want to see what is happening "UP" there! Just a thought, is all.Although, I have also heard that perms can do damage, and or color treating hair and other factors too! Just thought, why not check it out, you know?

Yeah, the same thing happened to my sister-in-law and niece when they used it. Ironically, though, the long and strong line works great for them. I don't think all shampoos work for everybody. I've also used Pantene Red Expressions and had the same result. However, I've used other brands, and they've worked great. I take a medication that has a side effect of hair loss, but it really fell out with the Garnier and Pantene. When I quit using them, my hair loss returned to normal. I haven't had an increase on my medication in over a year, so I know it's not from that. Regarding the color treating, I get mine done at a salon. I used to color my hair myself with store-bought stuff. When I finally started going to the salon to get it done, I noticed my hair was a lot less dry. The stuff you buy in the stores is very strong and it's horrible for your hair. You only have to leave it on for a short amount of time because it's so strong. If one continually uses it, then yeah, your hair will fall out eventually. Honestly, though, I've never had a problem with hair loss until I started medications. This one birth control pill I took, was the worst. It was Estrostep FE. I was on it for two years. I used to have very thick hair, so it took a while to thin. I've had my thyroid checked, it's normal. Sorry to hear about your health. I have a friend that has fibro and it causes her a lot of pain.
