hey ladies,

i've purchased the beautiful collection hair color (it's semi permanent, no ammonia, no peroxide)...i want to color, deep condition and twist my hair this weekend. what order should i do this? by the way, i'm no poo....i have the curlilicious cleansing cream and devacare no poo but i mostly do v05.

should i not deep condition the same time i color? i'm not sure if it'll pull the color right out especially since it's a semi perm color.

any advice or suggestions would be appreciated!!

thanks!

    Hey Stacy,

    There's a recent thread about color and deep conditioning treatments in the "Coloring your Hair' section:

    thank you!!!

    any thoughts on if it's ok to condition before? like 1-2 days before coloring?

    Hi,

    I'm sorry, I don't know.

    I've only colored my hair once, with body-art quality henna. Henna is a deep conditioning treatment, so this wasn't an issue for me.


    If you post this question in the 'coloring' section, I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will answer.

    Maybe 4-5 days before. DT's almost always interfere with color absorption for me. I have to go against my instincts and not use. A regular non-stripping conditioner after is fine.

    Deep treatments will always pull your color out, specially a semi permanent one because it just coats your strands it doesnt permeate the cortex. So thats a no-no. I definitely recommend to do it before you color .

    I was informed to AVOID protein deep treatments up to 2 weeks after a color session b/c any sooner it can make the color bleed.
