For years I had very short, natural colour hair so I just used to wash with whatever cheap shampoo was on offer and that was that. Now I have a chin-length coloured bob which I straighten nearly every day so I need to step up my hair care routine but not sure if I'm doing okay.
For information, I swim every weekday morning. I wear a cap but pool water still gets in.
I wash my hair every day with Dove shampoo. I then condition with Dove conditioner- comb the conditioner through an leave on for five minutes.
Every Sunday I do an Argan Oil deep hair mask which I leave on for about an hour. Or I'll put coconut oil on for a couple of hours.
Every Monday I use Kerastase Thermique heat protector which lasts five washes.
I feel like I should be doing more but I'm not sure what.
Boots do a range called 'Sun, swim, gym' which might be good if you swim a lot. I think they do a protective spray ,shampoo, conditioner and shampoo for coloured hair etc Chlorine in pools can be very drying.
I straighten mine most days but it's good to have a couple of days with no heat treatment. I really like Elvive Extraordinary Oil before drying or as a pre shampoo treatment.
