Appt for DevaCut - should I color first?

RacerWife7RacerWife7 Registered Users Posts: 895 Curl Novice
I have an appointment for my first DevaCut on 10/23. I was wondering if I should or shouldn't dye my hair beforehand? What do you think?

I'm 45 and have some stubborn grays as well as dark roots.

    I guess it depends on whether your coloring relaxes your curl pattern. If it does you might want to wait until after the cut. Personally, I would ask your stylist.

    Thanks for replying. ;) Hmm... I don't think it relaxes it - I never noticed really. I do it at home. And I haven't talked to the girl who will be doing my DevaCut yet. I just made an appointment - never been there before.

    I think I'm going to do it since my cut appt. isn't for 2 more weeks. Thanks again! I just wondered if it was going to be a problem or anything. I guess it would be if it caused relaxation.

    I have and I have not. Never seemed to matter. I prefer to color it before so that I feel like it is all new at once!

    Thank you! In all the years that I've been coloring (about 14), I never noticed a problem with my color relaxing my curl. So, I think I'll be okay. It helps to know others who have similar experiences, though. ;)

    Color first. You'll remove the damaged ends and won't have the freshly cut ends soaking up color, resulting in too dark ends
