My Go To Hair Products for Coloured Hair

My go-to purple shampoo I use religiously once I get my hair coloured is the Kérastase Ultra Violet line. I use both the Kérastase Blond Bain Ultra Violet Shampoo  and Kérastase Blond Fondant Cicaflash Conditioner a couple of times a week to brighten, lift and tone my hair and it honestly works a treat. I find a lot of purple shampoos can be quite drying to my hair but Kérastase is 100% worth the money in my opinion. I leave the shampoo and conditioner for around 5-8 minutes whilst I'm in the shower, dependant on how brassy my hair is looking, and you can automatically see a big difference on the days I use it. 
In addition, I also use the Kérastase Blond Absolu Cicaplasme Treatment on my hair every time I wash it before I dry my hair. I apply around 2-3 pumps of this into the tips of my hair and the back off my scalp (where breakage is usually quite strong for me due to tying my hair up). I find this helps drastically in helping smooth my hair especially with any flyaways or hair breakage and frizz.

When I'm not using my Kérastase, of course I'm using Olaplex. I use the Olaplex No.4 Shampoo  and Olaplex No.5 Conditioner and it really is a massive saviour to my coloured hair. Colouring my hair has definitely made it in dire need of hydration and in order to strengthen it I find Olaplex one of the best. My hair feels automatically thicker and more nourished once I use the products. 

In addition, every week or every two weeks I do a big treatment of the Olpax No.3 Bonding Treatment. I dampen my hair and sit with a mass of this product from root to tip for around 20-30 minutes, or however long until my hair naturally dries, and then wash it out, then proceed with my shampoo and conditioner. I find this bonding treatment really helps manage any frizz and split ends and really adds body to my hair. 

When I'm on my non-hair wash days, I still like to treat my hair to a bit of haircare, and love to add a bit of oil to my hair. I use the Olaplex No.7 Bonding Oil on days where I style my hair (curl/straighten) and not only does it add a nice bit of gloss back into my hair (that dry shampoo sometimes takes away) it leaves my hair feeling so soft and shiny. I only use a couple of drops and only to the very ends of my hair (otherwise it would leave my roots looking greasy) but I adore the scent of this oil.
