I have short, thick, hair that I wear spiky. I need to have it cut, colored and highlighted every 4 weeks as it grows VERY fast, and the gray around my hairline is noticeable. I use product to achieve that look, such as pomade, and detailing creme. You were wonderful in helping me recently when I needed some suggestions to protect my hair from sun and salt water damage. I plan to use those products, but have considered switching from the Aquage shampoo, conditioner (both for color treated hair) and styling products to something new. I would love some recommendations for color treated shampoos, conditioners, and styling products.
I’m glad to hear the product help about sun and salt water protection was beneficial for you! I have composed a few ideas for shampooing, conditioning, and styling your hair. I might want to add that if your Aquage products are working with your hair, it may not be necessary to change products. While experimenting with other products is great, sometimes it’s better to stick with what you know, and what you know will work. With that being said, you can always switch back to your current hair-care products if the ones I recommend to you do not work, or you do not like them.
We’ll begin with shampoo and conditioner.
Again I would like to recommend you some products from Pureology. All pureology products are safe for color-treated hair. Being that you seem to be a person who spends a lot of time in the sun and water, I’ve decided to go with Pureology’s hydrating shampoo and conditioner. If you need more volume to your hair, Pureology has products called Pureology Volume Condition and Pureology Volume Shampoo.
Pureology’s Hydrate Shampoo is essential for color treated hair. There are no carcinogenic stripping sulfates, making this product excellent for your color treated hair. This is a high lather, quick rinse, mild formula. The lather itself is thick, and makes your hair feel like it’s actually being cleansed. This formula preserves color and protects hair while it wraps your senses in an indulgent aromatherapy fragrance of rose, sadalwood, and green tea.
Wella Biotouch has a Nutri-Care Color Nutrition Shampoo. This is a basic cleansing shampoo for color treated hair. It has nourishing power and is a gentle cleanser. This product is said to improve styling product compatibility and to strengthen the hair structure from the inside out.
Alterna has a Hemp Seed Sculpting Putty that sounds right up your alley! This is an ultra creative styling tool that allows people to make an array of styles for their hair. Everything from sculpting, spiking, and texturizing is what this putty was made for.
Directions: For texture, separation, and control: place desired amount in palms (smaller amounts for shorter hair), emulsify until product looks clear. Work through damp or dry hair for desired results!
