As you saw from this post, I recently cut my hair short and also brightened my locks with some color. Maintaining highlights can be an expensive ‘hobby’ (touch-ups recommended around every 3 months), so I was on the lookout for high quality color-safe shampoos and conditioners. My hair salon recommended Paul Mitchell’s Awapuhi Wild Ginger shampoo. I’ve only used it once or twice now and so far, so good. This moisturizing shampoo is great for color-treated hair (doesn’t tangle hair) and the smell is heavenly. A little goes a long way — use a few pea-sized amounts and add water to lather into your hair. After showering, I use a leave-in conditioner to lock in moisture and my hair is good to go for a couple of days.
I like switching shampoos every few days so that my fine hair does not get used to one shampoo/conditioner. I did some research and bought the Nexxus Color Assure set from Target. The verdict? Love! Good lather and very moisturizing. I also follow-up with the Color Assure leave-in conditioner spray.
