Many of our salon customers come into our cash and carry asking the same question. Which is the best shampoo for after-care customer colouring? It is part of the hairdressers role giving after-care advice to clients and recommending products so it is important that salon staff understand the importance of why only certain shampoo is good for coloured hair. Shampoo claimed to be good for coloured hair will always be sulphate free. Sulphate strips the hair of colour and can cause hair to dry out which is not something a customer wants to happen with hair that has had a colour process. While sulphate free shampoo’s are a lot better than none sulphate free the actual sulphate free shampoo you choose to recommend will probably very much depend upon what branding your salon uses. For example if your salon colours with Loreal hair colour it is probably good practice to recommend a sulphate free Loreal shampoo. However, the eventual choice is up to you!
