Shampoo & Conditioner
Here at Blue Banana we understand just how important hair care really is! With an extensive range of colour safe, moisturising and protecting shampoos and conditioners available, be sure to make Blue Banana your next one-stop shop for all things nourishing!
Whatís the Importance of Using Colour Protecting Products?
Although itís not an absolute Ďmustí, here at Blue Banana we highly recommend utilising hair care products that are designed with hair dye Ďafter-careí in mind. Dyeing and bleaching can often be a harsh process on your hair, so itís highly important that you help your luscious locks as much as you can on their way to recovery and sparkling stardom!
Locking in all those vibrant and funky new colours youíve just added to your style, using Colour Protecting products is an effective way to achieve that professional sheen for much longer than with your usual, everyday go-to shampoo. Similarly, everyday shampoos can often contain sulphates and detergents, such as sodium/ammonium lauryl sulphate, which can often make up nearly 15% of each bottle; thatís a whole lot of harsh chemicals! Although great at cleansing your hair of built up dirt and oil, it can often strip your hair cuticles of its crucial colour molecules.
If youíre looking for a test-assured way to lock in moisture, colour and volume then our extensive range of colour safe shampoos and conditioners are guaranteed to meet all your dyeing needs.
Our Top Tips for Washing Your Freshly Coloured Hair
Although the washing process is pretty self-explanatory, here are a number of our top tips for achieving and ensuring that show stopping look day in and day out:
- How Soon Should I Wash My Hair After Colouring? Ė Although we canít speak for everyone, here at Blue Banana we recommend waiting at least 48 hours before you opt for the wash! Although we understand that this isnít practical for everyone, the longer you leave it the better!
- What Water Temperature Is Best? Ė Washing your freshly coloured hair with warm water is much better than if you are to use hot water. By using warm water, you minimise the risk of opening up your hair cuticles and thinning the colour.
- Iím Planning on Applying a Number of Different Colours, When Should I Wash My Hair? Ė If youíre looking to add different shades to your hair, then we best advise that you wash and dry your hair separately, in between each dye session.
- What Should I Do If My Hair Bleeds After Iíve Washed It? Ė Itís highly common for newly coloured hair to bleed when wet. If this happens, we suggest that you ensure your hair is completely dry before you sleep or choose to wear light coloured garments. It may also be a good idea to make good use of those old towels and bedding just in case!
