The culprit is usually using the wrong products at home. Here is a quick guide to Aveda at-home color care:

All colors: Use Color Conserve shampoo and conditioner

Color Conserve shampoo and conditioner protects and preserves color treated hair with uv-filters derived from ingredients like wintergreen and cinnamon bark; protecting hair from damage and fading due to sun exposure.


To neutralize unwanted brassy tones use Blue Malva shampoo and conditioner. Blue Malva is also great for neutralizing yellow tones on grey hair. To enhance golden tones stick with the Camomile shampoo and conditioner.


Madder Root shampoo and conditioner are your new best friends.


To enhance warm tones use Clove shampoo and conditioner. To impart cool tones or neutralize warm tones use Black Malva shampoo and conditioner.

Finally, for uber protection use Color Conserve’s Daily Color Protect before applying your normal styling products. It triple protects your hair color by helping seal in color, fortifying with anti-oxidents to help prevent color loss and protecting against UV fadage.

Life can get dull and boring sometimes, but hair color doesn’t have to!
