Happy New Year to you! ...More >
Okay my first suggestion is to have a trim, this way you will prevent the coloured, damaged and tangled hair from getting worse. You are correct using shampoo’s for coloured damaged hair will make your hair feel lank and make your scalp oily.
I suggest that you invest in a professional shampoo called a balancing shampoo, it won’t be organic but will have lots of plant based ingredients and be kind to your scalp and hair. It doesn’t matter which brand you buy as all of the professional ones are very similar but the formula will feel very light, not create lots of bubbles and shouldn’t look opaque it should be practically clear in color. This way it doesn’t have oils and creams that will weight your hair down and increase oil production. I love the Redken, Joico, Paul Mitchell and Nioxin brands best and a salon will be able to help advise you. My suggested shampoo won’t make the coloured hair feel great but you can manage that with conditioner, only apply a very small amount to the mid lengths and ends of your hair and comb through very gently, leave a few minutes before rinsing.
There are some amazing coloured conditioners available in salons as well as on the highstreet and could be a great solution to the fact you are only halfway through the growing out process, they are not permanent but will tone and blend the hair all over and you have total control as its deposit is more obvious the more often you use it.
Take care and good luck
