Baby shampoos are supposed to be gentle. After all, they work well for babies, right? With that, you might be thinking of using it on your hair. But first, let’s discuss one thing: Is baby shampoo good for color treated hair?
Baby shampoos can strip your hair’s color
Baby shampoos have a slightly higher pH than your regular shampoos to prevent eye stinging. As a result, they are more alkaline and more likely to remove your hair color faster.
Instead of baby shampoos, use shampoos formulated specifically for color treated hair. Sulfate-free shampoos are also ideal.
Now, if you want to retain your hair’s moisture and shine, make sure to treat it with a deep conditioner once a week. There are also hair masks you can use.
In addition to finding the right shampoo, there are also a few things you can do to keep your hair color longer. One is to avoid super hot waters. Use water at lower or cooler temperatures as that can keep the brilliance of your hair color longer.
Also, avoid using shampoo every day. For days you’ll skip washing and shampooing your hair, you can use a dry shampoo to prevent the buildup of oil.
