In this article, we’ll share our expert tips for taking care of your hair after a colour treatment.

What is a Treatment for Coloured Hair?

A treatment for coloured hair refers to the use of specialised products and techniques to maintain the health and vibrancy of hair that has been dyed. It can include the use of shampoos, conditioners, masks, and oils that are formulated specifically for colour-treated hair. It can also involve avoiding certain activities or products that can cause the colour to fade or the hair to become damaged.

Tips for Maintaining Your Coloured Hair

Here are some coloured hair treatment tips:

  1. Wait before washing your hair – After a colour treatment, it’s best to wait at least 48 hours before washing your hair. This allows the colour to be fully set and helps prevent fading.
  1. Use a colour-safe shampoo and conditioner – Regular shampoos and conditioners can strip the hair of its natural oils and cause the colour to fade. Use a product that is specifically formulated for colour-treated hair. If you’re browsing and still haven’t made up your mind on which product to buy, check out Oway’s Colour Protection Hair Bath that nourishes and prolongs your colour shine while protecting it from the sun, water & pollution damage. 
  1. Limit heat styling – Heat styling tools like flat irons and curling irons can damage the hair and cause the colour to fade. If you do use heat styling tools, use a heat protectant product and keep the temperature on low. Oway’s thermo-detangling cloud, for example, thoroughly untangles your hair while protecting it from the drying action of hot tools, promising to become your styling best friend! 
  1. Protect your hair from the sun – UV rays can cause the colour to fade and dry out the hair. Wear a hat for stylish looks, use a leave-in conditioner with SPF protection or an after-sun reparative hair mask that gives shine to your hair’s fibre. 
  1. Get regular trims – Regular trims are an essential part of maintaining healthy, coloured hair. Over time, hair can become damaged from everyday wear and tear, such as brushing, styling, and exposure to the elements. Be sure to schedule a trim every 6-8 weeks to keep your hair looking its best and prevent the colour from looking dull or faded.
