I started to find my first grey hairs at 19 – it’s genetic and a total pain in the ass. Because of this I’ve had to constantly colour my wavy, frizz prone tresses to keep the grey at bay. So I’ve been on a never ending, exhausting quest to find a decent shampoo and conditioner that will make my gruaig look vibrant, soft, super shiny and above all keep the darn colour in. So with years of experience under my belt (well a few years anyway) I reckon I’m well qualified to tell what’s what with coloured hair protection ranges – and this is a good ‘un.
Colour Stays Put
We all know our colour will grow out/fade eventually and a top up is the norm, but I found I got tons longer out of mine when using Mane ‘N Tail Colour Protect (€8.95, pharmacies nationwide) as opposed to any other colour protect shampoo that I’ve tried previously. Here’s why it gets my very choosy thumbs up:
- Colour looked fresh after many washes
- Both products were light and didn’t weigh hair down
- They were very gentle and didn’t irritate my super sensitive, often flaky scalp
- Hair looked ultra shiny and was soft once blow dried.
- The conditioner was creamy and luxurious, but didn’t make hair greasy.
Very good products. The only beef I had was that both the shampoo and conditioner are in identical bottles, so its very easy to mix them up. Take care! You don’t want to end up with a head full of conditioner (as opposed to shampoo) like I did. Be sure to use both the shampoo and conditioner to get the full effect and don’t forget to look at these very helpful extra tips for keeping that gorgeous colour in longer.
