List Rules The best shampoos for color-treated hair.

The best color shampoo is one which cleans hair effectively without stripping the color. Not all shampoos for colored hair are built the same: Some are fantastic, while others don't deliver on the promises they make. With so many choices out there, it's important to find the right shampoo for color-treated hair. That's where this list comes in. Vote for the color-treated hair shampoos you think work best, and vote down any that you don't like. Also, feel free to add your favorites, and you can rerank this list your way too.

Whether you have all-over color or highlights, everyone's colored coif could use a boost after a few weeks. Some of the best color shampoos are designed to do just that: Provide a small dose of invigorating color to enhance, not overpower. Some cleansers are designed for specific colors: red, blonde and brunette. Other shampoos for color-treated hair simply give the hair a little lift, making it appear shinier and healthier and possibly eliminating brassiness.

Protecting hair color is a huge task. Salon coloring costs big money, so you might want to consider a good color shampoo an investment. The longer you can stretch your hair color, the less frequent the salon coloring treatments.

Are you a shampoo addict? It's not unusual at all to have several different kinds of shampoos all in rotation at once. Check out these lists if you're interested in some of the best clarifying shampoos, moisturizing shampoos, and volumizing shampoos. Some, if not all, are formulated for people with color-treated hair -- just be sure to read the labels carefully before you work up a lather!
