Dyeing your hair damages hair cuticles, making newly coloured hair feel dry and rough. To help create a smooth texture and maintain that shiny, vibrant hue, opt for colour-care products that are specially formulated to strengthen brittle, dyed tresses and prevent the colour from washing out too quickly.

20. Timotei Vivid Color Shampoo, $7.90.
Formulated with camellia extract, which has antioxidant properties and is known to nourish hair, this paraben-free shampoo creates a creamy lather that leaves your locks softer, smoother and “airy” while minimising colour loss.
21. Balmain Moisturizing Shampoo, $55.70.
Of all the colour-care shampoos tested, the least amount of colour loss was observed with this one. Enriched with pure organic argan oil and pro-vitamin B5, it makes dry, rough hair soft and smooth without weighing it down.

Free of parabens, colourants and allergens, this conditioner enhances the vibrancy of your hair colour, and makes your locks look smooth and shiny.
23. Joico Color Balance Purple Shampoo, $32.
Containing purple pigments and ingredients that help neutralise the yellow and brassy tones of blonde or ashy locks, this leaves your hair feeling light and silky-smooth, and looking as fresh and vibrant as when it was just dyed. With this, there’s really no need for other post-shower hair treatments.
