Have you colored your natural hair and noticed that the original hue just doesn't last as long as you would like it to? Are you finding yourself taking more frequent trips to the salon? Is your hair becoming more fragile and damaged with every touch up? Though color processed damage is sometimes inevitable, a reevaluation of your current hair products may be necessary. Many of them are not designed to protect or preserve dyed or bleached hair. The following product lines are not only effective, but easily accessible and can be found at your favorite grocery or beauty stores.

Packed with the benefits of Biotin, fruit extracts, seed oils, and no silicones, the products in the SheaMoisture SuperFruit line are gentle enough for color-treated hair while providing ultra nourishment to the scalp and hair.
