The Standout Shampoos For Coloured Hair

We all know colour-treated hair needs a little more care and a dedicated shampoo can go a long way to ensure shine, vibrance and health. If you could do with adding one to your routine, these are the best – no matter what your colour or concern…

Chroma Absolu Bain Chroma Respect Shampoo, £24.44 (was £27.15) | Kérastase

Best: Hydrator

This multi-benefit formula is enriched with a host of ultra-nourishing ingredients – think hyaluronic acid, glycerin and amino acids – that replenish, protect and hydrate all at once. Plus, it deep cleans hair to give it a fresher, lighter feel.

Color Security Shampoo, £21.50 | Color Wow

Best: All-Rounder

Sulphates and silicones are the main chemicals that can cause coloured hair to look dull – so the fact this one has neither is a big plus. You only need a small amount of this shampoo to clean and eliminate impurities and dirt – it uses a Japanese amino-fortified complex to protect the hair from breakage, while also defending colour fade.

Heart Of Glass Silkening Shampoo, £20 | Davines

Best: For Shine

Often colour-treated hair can lack lustre and shine, so make this natural, sustainably sourced formula your go-to for silkier, softer strands. Its natural pigments make hair look more luminous without unbalancing your chosen colour, working especially well for bleached hair and blondes. Pair it with the range’s conditioner and hair mist for a 360° approach.

No.4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo, £28 | Olaplex

Best: For Blondes

For hardworking products that deliver visible results, Olaplex is a cut above. With a clear focus on hair health, this relatively new launch from the brand puts the focus back on blonde hair – think of this as a twist on your average purple shampoo. Working to neutralise brassy tones, it deeply cleans and repairs the hair at the same time. We also love that it's vegan, PH balanced and free from gluten, nuts, sulphates, phosphates and parabens.

Radiant Red Boosting Shampoo, £6.99 | John Frieda

Best: For Redheads

With added pomegranate extract and vitamin E, this colour shampoo is ideal for redheads in need of more vibrancy. Not only does it nourish dry strands, it contains added 18-MEA – a natural part of the hair’s structure that can be stripped away during the colouring process. This in turn repels water away from the hair’s barrier to enhance both shine and manageability.

Hydrate Sheer Shampoo, £23.80 | Pureology

Best: For Fine Hair

Since fine hair can be weighed down easily by rich shampoos, it pays to find a formula that nourishes, protects and strengthens. This Pureology shampoo does exactly that – and at an affordable price. A potent blend of jojoba, sage and tea tree extract creates a minty fresh scent and helps to condition strands, leaving them feeling softer and far more resilient.

Shampoo For Beautiful Colour, £44 | Oribe

Best: Nourishing Formula

Oribe doesn't come cheap, but if you’re after a luxe product that will extend the vibrancy of coloured hair in between appointments, this shampoo is a winner. In addition to repairing damage caused by harsh chemicals, dye and heat styling, it protects the hair from environmental stressors such as harmful rays and pollutants to ensure a healthier look and feel.
