Does anyone have any recommendations? I change my hair color a few times a year, ranging from medium/dark brown to lots of blonde highlights. My hairstylist says my hair is in remarkable condition 🙂
My current favorites for highlights are TiGi Dumb Blonde shampoo/conditioner. Any other good recommendations or ones to stay away from?

I love the Kerastase brand, but it can be very expensive. Ive been using the Redken line for the last few months. The color treated (red bottles) work really well.

The new Aveeno line is great, for me it has worked better than most of the expensive brands that I have ever used.

@Bostongrl25: My stylist gave me a sample pack of the Redken to try. That is what she uses at the salon when she washes my hair. It always makes it feel kind of dry though. Hmmm…..

I second the Redken red bottle. I had dyed dark brown hair for awhile and that shampoo kept it nice, dark and shiny.

i love biolage – it smells so good!
Redken color extend is supposed to be really good too – i’ve never used it but i’ve used other redken shampoos that i like.

I personally go between Pureology and Biolage. Kerastase is fantastic, but as a PP said, it can be VERY expensive. Another really good one is the Paul Mitchell Color Protect Daily. I liked that one a lot when I was going through cosmetology school!

Someone needs to develop a color treated shampoo for dandruff control. I can only use Head and Shoulders and it strips the red a ton. I end up using dry shampoo quite a few times a week so I don’t have to subject it to the stripping. I use Blow Faux Dry for dry shampoo.

I LOVE Loreal Professional vitamino colour!

Kerastase definitely, or you could try Bumble and Bumble. They have a remarkable Mending line for chemically treated hair.

Anything without sulfates.

I had the same issue with the Redken color stuff (red bottle). I felt like it dried my hair. I prefer the Redken All-Soft (gold bottle). It’s still color safe, but also moisturizing. I also like the Bed Head Color Goddess Shampoo, the conditioner isn’t conditioning enough for me, but it smells great. Truly, any sulfate-free shampoo is good for color-treated hair.

My favorites are L’Oreal Professionnel Series Expert Vitamino Color Incell Hydro-Resist Color Protecting Shampoo and Paul Mitchell Elixers for Color Treated Hair. However, both are sold only in salons and are very pricey. Since I no longer can find either of them in my new area, I’ve been using a widely available Loreal product for color-treated hair.

I love Pureology. When I dye my hair, I use the pink bottle (it’s volumizing for color treated hair). Leaves my hair vey shiny and soft, and helps keep color.
