Shampoo for Red Hair: What You Need to Know

Hey there, hair enthusiasts! Did you know that red hair is incredibly rare, with less than 2% of the world's population sporting this captivating hue? Whether you're a natural redhead or have chosen to rock the vibrant color, your locks deserve some extra love and care. And that's where Colorproof comes in.

Use Products for Color-Treated Hair

Whether your red hair is natural or color-treated, using a shampoo designed for color-treated hair is the way to go. Our specially formulated, color-safe shampoo for red hair is like a magical potion for your scarlet strands allowing you to choose what benefit your hair needs most. Not only does it nourish and enhance the softness and shine, but it also caters to every color-treated hair type imaginable! And here's a fun fact: our products work wonders for natural red hair too. With our innovative Advanced Color Last System, you'll not only enjoy longer-lasting, vibrant locks, but a gentle yet effective formula that moisturizes for your healthiest hair ever. It doesn't get any better than that!  

Keep Your Hair Covered

But it's not just about maintaining vibrant color. Redheads know the struggle of fading colors all too well. Unlike other hair colors, natural redheads tend to retain their fiery locks for longer, meaning you won't have to deal with white or gray hair creeping in as quickly as your blonde or brunette friends. However, there's a trade-off—red hair tends to be thicker, coarser, and has a higher density of individual strands. To keep your gorgeous red mane in prime condition, finding products like Colorproof that deeply moisturize the hair shaft is crucial. Since red hair is more susceptible to fading, we recommend opting for any of our protective shampoos with UV protection as well as protecting your stunning red hair with a hat or scarf in the summer. We also recommend layering on UV protection with Colorproof’s leave-in treatments and stylers that also include our Advanced Color Last System. Not only will this protect your hair color, but it will also keep your scalp safe and even slow down the aging process of your skin. Talk about a win-win!

Use A Sulfate-Free Shampoo

And here's the best part - our products are sulfate-free, which means NO MORE worries about damaging your hair with harmful chemicals. Sulfates strip away natural oils, leaving your hair dry, brittle, and more susceptible to breakage. They can also strip away color, fading your signature shade quickly and may cause irritation for those with sensitive scalps. With Colorproof, you can trust that any of our products from any of our lines will take care of your red locks without any sulfates sneaking their way in.
