Jessicurl's HCC and RC Color users???

I tried this on the color board but no luck. Maybe I'll get more luck here:

So I've been trying out Jess's HCC and I like how it seems to clean my hair pretty well without drying. But I also color with RC Color. I've only been using the HCC for a few weeks and haven't colored since. Now it's time to color and I wonder if I can use this before and/or after coloring? Or do you think the oils will keep the color from absorbing or fade it if used directly afterwards? I usually steer clear of oils before coloring and right after.

Anyone have experience using these two products? TIA! :D

    I avoid using the HCC for this reason :cry: I love all of the Jessicurl products, but am afraid of using this one!

    I think the best thing to do is e-mail Jessicurl, because she uses Robert Craig. She might be able to answer this!

    And Jess, if you are reading this, please chime in :)

    I'm really prone to fading so I've avoided using HCC right after coloring for a week. I also avoid using it as my poo immediately before coloring.

    I emailed Jess about it, and she's had no color fade from HCC after coloring. I'm not sure if she's covering grays or just changing her hair color though. For me, it's the grays that fade so easily so I use the RC poo and condish after coloring, just to be safe.

    Yeah, I've got resistant gray so I worry that the HCC will prevent or lift the color. I think I'll skip it for before and about a week after then. Thank you both! :)
