How to Care for Color-Treated Hair

BY Ana Salazar

Dyeing our hair is the perfect way to embrace a new trend, heighten our looks, or get over a break-up. While hair dye can be loads of fun, it also comes with a hefty, after-care list. And while there are several, gentle dye formulations and techniques, color-treated hair still needs a little extra attention. Below are five tips on how you can keep your dye job looking bright, fresh, and most importantly, healthy. 

Shampoo accordingly

While there are several color-protection shampoos in the market, at function, we took it to the next level by formulating a shampoo that will not only work for your unique hair type, but also make your new color last longer with the help of our color-protection and reduce brassiness hair goals. On top of that, our shampoos are always free of sulphates! Meaning that, won’t fade your color.

Condition with patience

Coloring your hair can make it drier and weaker, which is why conditioning should become a long and steady process in your routine. Take your time coating the lengths of your hair in custom conditioner with color protection, strengthen, replenish hair, hydrate, and/or deep condition hair goals. Once you’ve applied conditioner, let it rest for a couple of minutes – 1-3 more than usual. This will keep your hair hydrated and make your dye-job last longer. 

Mask up

To keep your hair even more nourished, use a hair mask once or twice a week. Applying custom hair mask for 5-10 minutes to the lengths of your hair will help with color-damage, as well as keep your dye shiny and vibrant. 


Air dry 

Even though blow-drying can give you jaw-dropping results, it can also jeopardize your hair’s strength and color. The easiest way to keep your hair healthy and vibrant is by air drying. Not happy with your usual air dry results? No worries! Apply 1-2 pumps of custom leave-in treatment to wet hair and comb it through with a wide-tooth comb for an effortlessly chic look. The best part of it all? You can reapply it to your dry hair if needed. 

Heat protect – always

Need to use your dryer or curling wand? We’ve got you covered. Add our thermal protection hair goal to your custom regimen. For even more protection, apply 1-2 pumps of custom hair serum to the lengths of your hair (focusing on the ends) to thermally protect up to 400°.
