Is Powder Shampoo Safe For Color-treated Hair?

Maintaining vibrant hair color can be challenging, especially with frequent washing. So, does powder shampoo help maintain hair color? Yes, it can. Powder shampoos are typically formulated with gentle, sulfate-free ingredients that cleanse your hair without stripping away the color. Additionally, they often contain nourishing components that help protect and extend the life of your hair dye.

Want to learn more about keeping your hair color fresh and vibrant? Read on for the ultimate guide to powder shampoo, including tips on how to use it effectively and why it's a great choice for color-treated hair!

Why Is My Hair Color Fading Fast?

Hair color can fade fast due to several reasons, primarily related to the hair's structure and external factors. One common cause is washing hair too frequently or with harsh shampoos that strip away the color molecules from the hair shaft. Overwashing can also lead to dryness, making the hair more porous and prone to losing color.

Exposure to sunlight is another significant factor. UV rays can break down the chemical bonds in hair dye, causing the color to fade quicker. This effect is more pronounced in lighter hair colors and can be exacerbated by spending extended periods outdoors without protection.

Additionally, heat styling tools such as flat irons and curling irons can accelerate color fading by drying out the hair and causing the cuticles to open, releasing the color molecules. Chemical treatments like perms or relaxers can also contribute to color fading if not properly managed or if applied too soon after coloring.

To combat rapid fading, it's essential to use color-safe hair care products, like the Thyme & Grapefruit and Camellia & Geranium from The Powder Shampoo to maintain vibrancy and prolong the life of your hair color. 

How to Protect Color-Treated Hair?

Here are some tips on how to protect color-treated hair, including using powder shampoo:

Tip 1: Use a Sulfate-Free Shampoo

Regular shampoos that contain harsh sulfates can strip away the color molecules in your hair, causing your color to fade much faster. Common sulfates found in regular shampoos are SLS and SLES which are responsible for the foaming effect. In severe cases, they can also irritate the scalp, causing redness, dryness, and itching. Instead, opt for a sulfate-free shampoo formulated specifically for color-treated hair. Our Powder Shampoo is a great option, as it gently cleanses without stripping away your hard-earned color.

Tip 2: Limit Heat Styling

Heat from blow dryers, curling irons, and other styling tools can cause significant damage to color-treated hair, leading to dryness, breakage, and accelerated color fading. Try to limit your use of hot tools as much as possible, use low heat setting, and always apply a heat-protectant product when styling.

Tip 3: Deep Condition Regularly

Color-treated hair requires extra moisture and nourishment. Make deep conditioning treatments a regular part of your haircare routine, using a rich, hydrating mask at least once a week. Look for formulas infused with reparative ingredients like keratin, argan oil, and shea butter.

Tip 4: Protect from UV Exposure

Just like our skin, our color-treated hair is also vulnerable to sun damage. The UV rays from sunlight can cause color to fade and compromise the hair's structure. When spending time outdoors, wear a hat or use a leave-in hair sunscreen to shield your tresses. Aside from this, avoid swimming in the 1st two weeks because saltwater and chlorinated pool water can strip hair color, leaving it looking dull.

Tip 5: Schedule Regular Touch-Ups

As your hair grows out, you'll start to see your natural roots peeking through. To keep your color looking fresh and vibrant, schedule regular touch-up appointments with your colorist every 4-6 weeks, depending on your hair type and growth rate.

6. Use a Powder Shampoo Intended for Damaged and Color-treated hair. 

Powder shampoos can be a great option for people with color-treated hair because they are often gentler than traditional shampoos. They often contain natural ingredients and no sulfates, which can help to remove dirt and oil without stripping away color. Look for a powder shampoo that is specifically formulated for damaged or color-treated hair, like The Powder Shampoo.

Camellia & Geranium Powder Shampoo 

The Powder Shampoo with Tamanu oil, Camellia seed oil, Olive Oil, and Geranium Essential Oil is perfect for color-treated hair due to its gentle, sulfate-free formula.

Nourishing oils - Tamanu, Camellia seed, and Olive Oil - deeply condition and replenish moisture, counteracting the drying effects of coloring.

In addition, Geranium Essential Oil soothes and balances the scalp, promoting a healthy environment for strong, vibrant hair. Ingredients like Tamanu oil have restorative abilities that repair damage and strengthen hair structure, which is particularly beneficial for brittle, color-treated hair. The emollient oils of The Powder Shampoo also seal the cuticle, imparting a soft, glossy shine and preventing dullness or frizz. Together, these benefits make the Powder Shampoo an excellent choice for maintaining the health and beauty of color-treated hair.


Thyme & Grapefruit Powder Shampoo 

Hair dye chemicals can irritate the scalp by removing its protective oils, leaving it vulnerable to environmental damage, styling products, and other irritants. This is where the Thyme & Grapefruit Powder Shampoo comes in. Perfect for those seeking scalp protection, this powder shampoo features a sulfate-free formula designed to be gentle on color-treated hair.

Combined with Grapefruit essential oil, Licorice root, and pre + probiotics, this powder shampoo works to eliminate impurities, reduce irritation and inflammation, and restore scalp balance.
