11 Best Shampoos And Conditioners For Color Treated Hair

Just like any other group of friends, the women at Salt has a group chat. Earlier today Shelley sent us a link to this page and proved what we all already knew, that our products are amazing. Elle Magazine came out with their 11 top picks of shampoo and conditioners for color treated hair and guess what is #1?? That’s right, Davines! MINU shampoo is at the top of the list. Check out the rest of the list below and stop into Salt to grab your next bottle of MINU.


For those with color-treated hair, shampooing may very well be the devil. “You should wait as long as you can to wash your hair after color,” Lucille Javier, colorist as Sally Hershberger Salon in New York advises “because it’s already been processed with professional color and shampoo. It’s best to give your hair a rest and not be aggressive with your delicate locks. Less is more.”

But when the time does come for a clean, Javier suggests using a sulfate-free shampoo since sulfates can strip the color prematurely. Wash with cool water as “hot water opens the cuticle of the hair causing the color to fade a lot faster,” says the colorist.

While she swears by professional-grade shampoos, Javier also recommends Davines collection of products for dyed hair, Oribe’s Gold Lust Shampoo, and Shu Uemura’s Urban Moisture shampoo. Shop these selects and more shampoos for colored hair, ahead.
