Best Hair Masks for Vivids?

Hello and good morning everyone!


I have vivid, semi-permanent hair dye (Aveda brand) and am looking for a hair mask. My hair has also been lightened. My main concern is for it to be sulfate-free, but I am also very wary as to not buy something that would affect the vivid hair dye. My hair is dry, frizzy, and damaged (heat and lightening), so I for sure would like a hair mask.


If anyone else has experience with a hair mask and vivid dyes, please drop your recommendations! Thank you so much!

What about a leave in treatment @abacinateme ? That way you don't have to worry about rinsing your colour away? Is it just dryness? What's your hair story if I can ask?

I would be less concerned about your hair mask and much more concerned with your shampoo. Masks typically have a lower, more acidic ph as they have no cleansing agents. The soul purpose is to infuse ingredients and seal the cuticle. With vivid, colour loss comes when you shampoo; this is when your cuticles are slightly swelled to allow cleansing agents in.
