We've read article after article about how wearing lipstick during the pandemic has renewed confidence and excitement in the mundane lives of beauty lovers across the globe, but next to nothing about hair.

While trips to the are fewer and farther apart these days, camouflaging grown out roots and finding ways to preserve brittle strands are high priorities for many. However, the lack of access to hairstylists does not mean that you have to abandon experimenting with colour.

For commitmentphobes, colour depositing conditioners are the perfect answer to permanent hair dyes; they stain the outside of the hair to boost the vibrancy of faded dye and even add new hues to virgin locks.

Forget messy dyes with toxic ingredients - these top rated, semi-permanent products pack major benefits and wash out with no problems.

So, grab your hair towel (that's seriously all you'll need) and get ready for a change.

Overtone's award-winning Colouring Conditioners have received praise from beauty giants like Allure and Glamour for their nourishing formulas brimming with coconut oil, shea butter and avocado oil, as well as their ability to create deep colour in 10 to 15 minutes.

Plus, the brand carries a line of Colouring Conditioners formulated specifically for brown hair, which naturally requires more pigment. Even better, their products are suitable for all hair types including curly/coily textures.

Note: According to Overtone experts, colour longevity will be different from person to person depending on things like starting shade and porosity (the hair’s ability to absorb things).
