Is Malin and Goetz Shampoo Color Safe?

Malin and Goetz shampoo is color safe and made with gentle ingredients that preserve hair color by not stripping off color molecules from color-treated hair.

However, every hair is different, and hair colors may react differently to the shampoo. To ensure that your hair color stays longer:

  • Use lukewarm water when shampooing. Lukewarm water helps to retain the color molecules in the hair.
  • Allow at least 72 hours before shampooing after the freshly done color. This is to allow the hair to process fully and close the cuticles.
  • Shampoo your hair less often for color-treated hair.
