When you've got your locks dyed in a different hue, you have to take extra care of 'em. Maintaining your tresses' vibrant color calls for a change in your hair care routine. Conditioners and hair masks are necessary to keep them from getting brittle. As for shampoo, you have to be label-conscious and check if they are sulfate-free.
Sulfate is a chemical compound that acts as a detergent or an agent that lifts dirt away from the follicles and scalp. This ingredient causes the color to fade quickly. And because sulfate-free shampoo is hard to find and can be expensive, we searched and tested the best budget-friendly sudsers for colored hair.
