Hair Care For Coloured Hair
When you get your hair dyed either at home or at the hairdressers, you do not want your hair fading quickly or using products that strip out your hair colour.
Over the years of having my hair dyed at home and at the hairdressers, I have finally found products that keep my hair shiny and bright and maintains the colour.
As you can see from the image above all these products are from the L’Oreal range. I have used these products for around 2 years now and I swear by these products.
L’Oreal Elvive Colour Protect | Caring Shampoo
The science of coloured hair
Repeated washing, sun exposure, pollution and external aggressions can make coloured hair more sensitive. With time colour fades, losing its shine and intensity.
The secret to colour protection
The L’Oréal laboratories have created a formula which acts on 3 Dimensions of colour – Intensity, Luminosity, Reflection:
1 Maintains Colour Intensity: The new Colour-Seal Elixir™ has been developed to intensively condition, to help protect colour from fading and preserve its intensity.
2 Protects Hair: The formula enriched with UVA/UVB Filters protects coloured hair from external aggressions. Hair looks full of life.
3 Prolongs Radiance: The formula with Concentrated Nourishment intensely nourishes the hair and smoothes its surface. Shine is revived and radiance is
Intense, radiant colour: 80% of colour radiance maintained after 28 washes
This shampoo is so light on my hair and the only time I see my hair dye in the water is when I was my hair the first time after it has been dyed, after that when I wash my hair it does not strip any colour from my hair.
The shampoo also smells amazing and keeps my hair looking so shiny and healthy! I have been using this shampoo for nearly two years as it is the only shampoo I find that does not strip my hair or leave it looking dull.
This product is £2.50 and you can find it online here.
L’Oreal Elvive Colour Protect | Conditioning Spray
Does your coloured hair need a convenient protecting boost, that instantly detangles hair, and is so lightweight you can use it everyday?
The secret to colour protection
The L’Oréal Paris laboratories have developed Colour Protect Leave-in Spray enriched with UVA/UVB Filters. Its formula nourishes the hair and helps protect it from external aggressions to leave colour shimmering.
Delivered in an ultra-fine spray, the formula disperses evenly onto the hair, detangling instantly without weighing it down.
Your hair is instantly detangled and manageable: combing is easy! Protected, your colour looks vibrant and shines with enhanced radiance.
How To Use
So light, can be used daily.1. On dry hair, to refresh between washes or on the go.2. On damp hair, after washing focusing on the lengths.For extra care and protection use as part of the complete Elvive Colour Protect range. No need to rinse out.
I thought I would pick this up as they had a 3 for 2 offer on the L’Oreal Colour Protect range, I thought I would try this as I curl my hair a lot for work and my ends were getting a little dry and not looking the best. After washing my hair I like to spray this on the ends of my hair and then use the hair dryer on it.
Because I do not actually use conditioner on my hair as I feel like it makes my hair far too soft and even thinner looking I find this great to use on days I feel like my hair needs a little TLC without having to use conditioner as it is not as heavy as using conditioner but still has the same benefits.

L’Oreal Elive Colour Protect |Styling Mousse
L’Oréal haircare laboratories presents Elvive Styliste Mousse, offering an impressive combination of care and hold.
The Science of coloured hair
Colouring your hair can alter its natural protective layer, making the fibre more sensitive to external aggressions such as sun and pollution. To help reveal their beauty and ensure a perfect style, they need protection and a long lasting hold.
48H long lasting hold lasting colour vibrancy
Colour Protect Elvive Styliste Mousse is the combination of Elvive care expertise and the experience of L’Oréal Paris experts to create a perfect style. Enriched with UV Filters, its smooth and exquisite formula is designed to:
1 Help to protect your vibrant coloured hair.
2 Offer a 48H* long lasting hold thanks to its strong fixing power.
Create a perfect style that holds!
Lasting colour vibrancy – 48H hold
As I said previously my hair is quite fine and does not hold curls in my hair for a long time, I picked this up as it is part of the colour protect range. I’ve only been using this for 4 months but I find it gives my hair so much texture and hold without it going hard in my hair like some hair mousse do.
I like to put some on my hair and then run it though the ends of my hair and then blow dry and then style my hair. It keeps the curls in place for so much longer and also keeps my hair looking very volumized!
I only use this product once a week.
This product is £1.73 and you can find it online here.

As you have probably read a lot in my hair reviews on my blog, I LOVE this product. It is a hair product I use every time I wash my hair and that I swear by.
I only use two pumps of this and I like to run it through my hair and then I often leave it to air dry. I find it keeps my hair looking so shiny and feeling so soft and holds the colour in. I’ve noticed my hair does not look or feel dry when I have used this and because I have thin hair, it often knots a lot but when I used this product it helps get the knots out better and makes it easier to brush.
I rave about this product all the time to everyone as I think its such an amazing hair care product for normal or coloured hair.
This is the most expensive product but it is worth the money and lasts for a good few months before you need to buy a new one.
This product is £8.00 and you can find it online here.
So there’s my 4 favourite hair care products for coloured hair.
