I would definitely recommend this shampoo for color treated hair. I use both semi-permanent and permanent color in my hair and have found that this shampoo causes less fading than regular shampoos. The cleaning chemicals in this shampoo are very mild (no sodium laureth sulfate and those other harsh ingredients you find in drug store shampoos), so it strips less out of your hair on a daily basis. And since you really only apply it to the scalp when you clean your hair, it is almost as if you're hair is being cleaned with just water. If possible, though, I would recommend purchasing a high quality conditioner for color-treated hair and using that after shampooing once or twice a week (but only on the hair - not the scalp). This will give some additional protection to your color from other elements such as the sun, pollution, chlorine, etc. Loreal makes some good sulfate free ones you can find at CVS.

I use a dark brown haircolor by L'Oreal that does not contain ammonia (last through 28 shampoos) and have used Revita for the past two weeks. My hair is shiny and I haven't notice a significant fading of color since using Revita. I do not have a lot of gray, so using L'Oreal has become a once-a-month ritual for me, and I did color my hair about two weeks before I started to use Revita. I am very pleased to report this shampoo has definitely slowed my hair loss, and I would rather be gray than to have significant scalp spots shwoing through my dark brown hair.

I've used it with semi-permanent hair and I didn't notice any difference. I love this shampoo and the Alterna Caviar-volumizing shampoo.

This shampoo isn't too harsh on hair color. I would say you are pretty close on the 3 to 4 weeks
