5 Tips for Caring for Coloured Hair

5 Tips for Caring for Coloured Hair

Coloured hair needs special attention. You need to make sure to keep it vibrant and healthy while also making sure your colour doesn’t fade. Read our top 5 tips for giving your coloured hair the care it needs.


Make the switch to sulphate free shampoo and Conditioner.

Ever washed your hair and seen coloured water wash down the drain? Sulphates can often be too harsh on your hair, causing the colour to be stripped from your hair. Sukin’s Colour care range is free from sulphates (and silicones!) and contains Quinoa to help prevent colour fading.


Swap out elastics for a scrunchie!

Not only are they more comfortable, scrunchies are less likely to pull and tug at your locks, helping to prevent hair breakage.

Colour Care Regime

Turn down the heat.

One of the most common causes of colour fading is washing your hair with hot water. Try using lukewarm water when washing your hair, this will stop the cuticles of your hair opening and letting your colour escape.

Commit to the double mask.

Multi-masking is the latest trend now, but it isn’t restricted to just your face. Next time you pop on your Sukin face mask, spread the love to your hair and try Sukin’s Colour Care Lustre Masque. It has a blend of Kakadu Plum & Birch Extracts to restore shine and radiance to coloured hair.


Ditch the hot tools (…where possible!)

Focus on locking in moisture by putting down the hairdryer, straightener or curler! A simple way to introduce this switch into your routine slowly is to start alternating between blow-drying your hair after washes and letting your hair air dry instead. (P.S for added hydration after your wash try Sukin’s Hydrating Treatment Oil).
