    Default Best shampoos for colored hair?

    I just got a demi-permanent color put in today and it looks absolutely fantastic. It is a chestnut brown with some red in it. I love it so much, I want to keep from washing it out as long as possible. I only wash my hair about every other day. Best shampoo suggestions? Oh, and I have some dandruff, which I usually use dandruff shampoo for, but I assume that will strip the color?

    Dandruff shampoo is bad for color b/c of the chemicals. The best shampoo for any shade of red would be a color depositing shampoo. Reds do not like to stay in hair and fade very, very quickly. Aveda makes a great one, they'll mix it to match your shade. Back when I had my hair bright, bright red I used a color depositing shampoo and conditioner made by Kiwi that I loved.

    Stay away from anything that says clarifying. It will strip the color.

    I had this crazy idea once that baby shampoo would be gentle to new colours in hair. WRONG. Never use this. It is almost as bad as Pantene (if you believe all the bad stuff they say about it) I use Aveda if I have the cash and that holds any new colour well.

    I've been using Infusium and I have a much better fade of my color this time. I don't have dramatic roots like normally. Something I used to use to enhance my own color was the Aussie Reds line. It actually worked to put a natural looking red tint in my hair. Not even sure if they still make it.
