the best haircare routine for frizzy color-treated hair

It’s no secret that dry hair leads to frizz. But did you also know that color-treated hair tends to be drier than non-color-treated hair? And if that color happens to be lighter than your natural shade, it’s likely that you struggle with even more dryness and frizz. With the right haircare routine, it is possible to combat frizz while maintaining vibrant, long-lasting color. The secret? Consistency and the right combination of products for your unique hair type, styling routine, and color. 

In the shower 

Good haircare starts in the shower. It can be difficult to find a high-quality shampoo and conditioner that addresses all of your haircare needs. This is because professional and high-quality products use highly specialized ingredients in order to target and treat specific hair concerns. The secret is to develop a haircare routine that includes multiple product families. This gives you multiple benefits, delivered in a customized routine that works for your hair. 


The best shampoo and conditioner for color-treated frizzy hair includes both a targeted color maintainer and a specialized frizz-tamer. You can adjust the frequencies of how often you use each, depending on your hair color and your level of dryness/damage.
