Hair color is an important part of our identity. When our color looks fresh and vibrant, we feel really good. But if our color starts to change, fade or turn brassy, it can take a toll on our self esteem and how we feel looking in the mirror. Whether you color your hair at home or the salon, don't let your hard earned money literally get washed down the drain or ruined by too much sun exposure.
In order to get more out of your hair color, you need to be protecting your hair health in between sessions. Harmful shampoos can strip your hair, and if curly hair on its own isn't dry enough, color treated hair that is not treated with the right kind of hair products can become very difficult to maintain! Check out these 15 color protecting shampoos to extend the life of your hair color.
