How long after you color...

can you use a clarifying shampoo? My hair just isn't happy about something!! I've tried an acv rinse, a heavier rinse out co, a leave-in and my curls are still a mass of undefined frizz! As you can see from my sig, it's been almost 2 weeks since i've had my haircut (and color done) and my hair is still misbehaving! Maybe I need to invest in a protein treatment for my next DT?

    Hi - Sorry you are having this problem. I totally understand because I color my hair (grey roots) and it is so drying but I hate grey. I have used Christo's protein masque after which did help a lot. Probably any protein masque would work. My only question is whether you know if you are protein sensitive. Have you tried a protein DT before? Let us know if you use a protein DT and the results. Good luck.

    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    I've never done a protein treatment before so i'm not sure how sensitive I am. I know I've never been able to use a leave-in with protein in it before. Rinse out might be okay? Torn between joico k-pak and nexxus emergencee. Unless there's a good cheaper drugstore alternative like neutrogena or something...

    I do an overnight protein DT a week before I get color and again 10-14 days after color. The morning after I do the 2nd DT, I clarify -- I don't worry about what my stylist uses for styling, so I do the clarifying to get rid of any bad stuff.

    ETA: if you're protein-sensitive, shampooing afterwards should take care of it.

    If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, Sally's has a generic k-pak that is about $5.

    I haven't colored yet since I've been testing out teh K-pak. I am overdue though!

    How much does the Nexxus Emergencee usually run for? They sell them at my local Hannaford's.
