Changing up your hair color is a low-key way to reinvent yourself (it takes far less commitment than a haircut, which requires the dreaded grow-out). Color-depositing conditioners have come a long way, and they’re just the thing if you want to kick up your tint or maintain a salon job—with zero damage and only luxurious hydration as a result.
Works With Complementary Shampoo
Gentle enough to use every day, this latherless cream rinse cleanses your strands without drying them out. Keracolor
To double up on the color punch, choose a shampoo-conditioner duo! Boost your color even more by leaving the conditioner in for several minutes as you wash the rest of your body.
For Pre-Lightened Locks
This one moisturizes, softens and strengthens, all while giving you optimal hue hold. Celeb Luxury
For extra staying power and a more dramatic effect, apply conditioner to dry hair, let it stay for at least 20 minutes, then rinse. This works especially well for fashion colors, like dreamy pinks and blues.
Salon Quality in 30 Minutes
This one is particularly great if you’re starting with damaged or sensitive strands. Punky
The best part about a color-depositing conditioner? It fades little by little. At maximum, it should wash out in 25 shampoos. And if you ever need to speed up the fading process, you can rinse with a clarifying shampoo.
