If you go to the trouble and expense of having your hair colored then you want to do all you can to extend the life of it. It can be confusing to try and figure out which color products work and which don’t. This article can give you some direction on that subject as well as mini reviews on products. I hope this offers you the helpful advice you’ve been searching for.
1. John Frieda Radiant Red Color Protecting Shampoo and Conditioner
$15.99 at amazon.com
When you look for color extending shampoos and conditioners, they usually fall into two categories. One is general color safe products and the other is color protecting products designed specifically for each hair color. My daughter recently went for a red ombre hair color and this shampoo and conditioner has worked beautifully at extending it. The first time she attempted this hair color, it faded away almost immediately without this shampoo conditioner duo. Important to note is that John Frieda also has shampoo and conditioner specifically for blondes and brunettes.
2. John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Liquid Shine Clear Glaze
$28.99 at amazon.com
This’s a unique hair product to add to your hair care. It’s as glaze that lifts the color and gives it the energy you need when you’re close to your next hair care appointment. This glaze revitalizes the color as well as adds a gorgeous shine. We all love shiny hair and this’s an easy way to achieve it. There’s also a glaze available for blondes and redheads.

If you want a basic shampoo and conditioner that protects any hair color then this one’s a good choice. Redken is a very trustworthy brand. I’ve never had bad results with any Redken hair product. This shampoo and conditioner has great reviews, coming in at 4.4 stars. This one’s on repeat in my hair care collection.
4. Arvazallia Rejuvenating Hair Mask for Color Treated Hair

Sometimes your hair just needs something more than a daily conditioner. When your hair is screaming for a hair mask, this’s the one to reach for. It’s specifically formulated for color treated hair so it protects while it nourishes. It’s very economical at just $13.99. And it has a 5 star rating which is top notch!
5. Dove Color Care Leave on Conditioner
$5.50 at amazon.com
I have had a long term relationship with the Dove Color Care line and never been disappointed. That stands true for this leave on conditioner as well. The bottle is small but the price is only a little over $5, making it very affordable. Apply this easy to use hair product to damp hair and you’re all set. It’s that extra layer of conditioning colored hair needs.
6. Batiste Dry Shampoo a Hint of Color - Light and Blonde
$6.99 at amazon.com
Batiste has been a long time favorite in the dry shampoo category. It’s cheap and it works well. What more is there to say? It’s great at helping you with second day hair or just for texturizing. It’s also available specifically for other hair colors, too.
7. Pureology Color Stylist Supreme Control Hair Spray
$20.76 at amazon.com
Why shouldn’t color protection carry over into hairsprays? It’s not a mainstream idea yet but it probably will be in time. This hairspray has an anti-fade complex to protect your color. Pureology is a fantastic brand that you can trust. This brand is a favorite among beauty bloggers.
