How do I stop my coloured hair from fading?

Well I’ve had two Ask and You Shall receive emails about this and Natasha has an easy answer for you. Use a proper shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair. Avoid shampoos and conditioners that are well known for stripping the hair of colour - I’m talking the likes of Pantene and Head and Shoulders here.

L’Oreal Elvive Colour Protect (in the red bottle) is a great buy. Your hair colour stays truer for longer they promise - and I can vouch for that.

Watch out for 3 for 2’s in Boots because they always have this range in this offer and you can get a bottle free. Then wait until the offer comes round again and buy your next three bottles. Or six if you’re buying conditioner too. It’ll save you nearly a tenner a time for the big bottles.

If you want to really treat your hair then there is truly nothing better then Kerastase Chroma Reflect. This just doesn't keep your hair from fading it enhances and gives shine and lustre. I can also vouch for this - it is fab. You can buy the wonderful Chroma reflect from salons, or online at HQHair.


Remember to deep condition your hair with one of the conditioning masques from whichever range you choose. Coloured hair needs all the help it can get to keep looking lustrous and healthy.
