Oils and color?

chellebellechellebelle Registered Users Posts: 4
I've heard that oils are bad for maintaining color. I just went red and I love it, but my hair looooves coconut oil. I'm afraid to use it in case it might fade my color, but I really need some kind of DT.

Will using coconut oil fade my color?
Any suggestions for non oil DTs? (I'm a broke college student so preferably cheap)

    Using oils as a light dress or as an occasional DT won't hurt your color. Applying massive amounts of oil, with some regularity -- especially immediately after a color process -- can fade it a skosh.

    That said, red is haaaa-a-a-a-a-ard to maintain, regardless.
