Chroma Absolu: Your New Hair Care Routine for Coloured Hair

Chroma Absolu: Your New Hair Care Routine for Coloured Hair

Hair colour can be about altering your look to match the season, your mood or a new chapter. You can communicate personal style, unlock vivid shades and find a renewed sense of self. The confidence an updated hair colour can lend is priceless - but colour treated hair care can be harder to care for. We created the Kérastase Chroma Absolu range for the experimenters, the blondes, brunettes and serial colourers to keep hair glossy and strong while maintaining colour. In this guide, we’ll show you how to build your perfect coloured hair care routine with effective at-home solutions from the Chroma Absolu range.

Hair care for coloured hair

It is possible to extend the life of your hair colour while building follicle strength with tailored hair products for coloured hair. Colour treated hair care is unique because the goal is to tackle or prevent the three signs of coloured hair damage:

  1. Porosity: Regular heat and colour treatments can weaken hair fibres and cause them to become more porous. High porosity hair is more vulnerable to the elements and therefore prone to further damage.

  2. Frizz: Bleaching and colouring hair can damage the surface of the hair cuticle, opening the door to frizz that can be hard to tame.

  3. Oxidation: The flip side of cool hair tones such as platinum blondes and ash browns – hair colour can oxidise over time, turning brassy or red.

Chroma Absolu key ingredients

Chroma Absolu is the Kérastase coloured hair routine designed to take on these hair concerns. With the help of three healing acids, Chroma Absolu products work to address damage within the deepest level of the hair follicle, while smoothing and protecting the surface.

Amino acid

Amino acid molecules are the building blocks of protein and carry a variety of benefits for your coloured hair care routine. Amino acids in hair care can promote keratin production, fill gaps in damaged hair cuticles, increase hydration and bring shine to coloured hair.

Lactic acid

Lactic acid, a popular alpha-hydroxy acid in skincare, is equally as conditioning when applied in hair care for coloured hair. It gently exfoliates the surface of hair strands, dissolving product build-up to make way for a smooth, lustrous mane.

Tartaric acid

Tartaric acid is a mild, plant-derived acid which offers a protective function in coloured hair care. In Chroma Absolu products, tartaric acid forms a delicate barrier layer to shield hair from oxidative stress and future damage, thus allowing strands to retain colour.

The Chroma Absolu collection

You can mix and match Chroma Absolu products to personalise your Kérastase coloured hair care regime. Whether you’re in need of a start-to-finish hair care routine for coloured hair or seeking just one or two products to keep your locks looking their best, our bespoke line for coloured hair has what you need.

Chroma Absolu Bain Chroma Respect Shampoo

Chroma Absolu Bain Chroma Respect Shampoo

The first stage of hair care, Chroma Absolu Bain Riche Respect Shampoo contains the trifecta of Chroma Absolu hero ingredients: amino, lactic and tartaric acid. The sulfate-free shampoo for coloured hair cleanses and nourishes hair while imparting the exfoliation and protection qualities of these key ingredients.

Chroma Absolu Masque Filler Hair Mask

Chroma Absolu Masque Filler Hair Mask

Enriched with centella asiatica for hair comfort, the Chroma Absolu Masque Filler Hair Mask fills porous strands and fortifies the hair surface. For coloured hair, treatments weekly or with each wash will preserve colour saturation and leave hair soft and reflective.

Chroma Absolu Thermique Heat Protectant

Chroma Absolu Thermique Heat Protectant

Treat coloured hair to the Chroma Absolu Thermique Heat Protectant serum for a dose of protection against UV, humidity and heat. The final step before styling, this elegant hair serum will add moisture before sealing the hair cuticle against the elements.

Chroma Absolu Soin Acide High Shine Gloss Treatment

Chroma Absolu Soin Acide High Shine Gloss Treatment

Imbued with resurfacing lactic acid and soothing centella asiatica, our Chroma Absolu Soin Acide High Shine Gloss Treatment cares for and seals coloured hair for a high-shine finish. Use as a weekly treatment on cleansed hair – or more frequently if you have extra sensitised locks.

Your coloured hair care routine

In your daily hair care routine for coloured hair, combine a gentle Chroma Absolu cleanse with nourishing masks and fondants from the range. Don’t skip on heat protecting serum post-wash either – this will help to shield your mane from environmental stressors throughout the day. Lastly, a weekly treatment is a must to keep coloured hair in top condition.
