Caring for colour-treated hair is an art – and with double the colour, you’ll need double the protection. Here’s our handy guide to properly caring for two-tone hair.


Use a protective shampoo and conditioner


Regular shampoo and conditioner will strip your hair of its colour over time, leaving you with dull, lacklustre locks. That’s why it’s always best to use a shampoo and conditioner that have been specially formulated to protect colour-treated tresses. We recommend the colour ‘correct and protect’ Kérastase Bain Chromatique range. This range also offers UV filters to safeguard coloured hair from the bleaching effects of the sun.

Apply a hair mask weekly


It’s important to keep two-tone hair well-nourished and moisturised, as dry hair is likely to fade faster. A quality hair mask should take care of that if you apply it on a weekly basis. The strengthening L’Oréal Professionnel Vitamino Color A-OX Jelly Masque is a mask designed specifically for coloured, weakened hair, adding shine and essential nutrients for a flawless aesthetic.


Use a leave-in treatment


For spectacular shine and a softer texture, a leave-in treatment is a must. The lightweight Mizani 25 Miracle Milk protects against heat damage and helps to lock in moisture so that your two-tone tresses turn heads wherever you go.
