Frizzies after coloring???

I just colored my hair (at home) because someone told me that it made hair shinier. Well . . . it's not, it's SO frizzy. Does anyone have any tips??

    Did you lighten? I find that lightening my hair with highlights makes it frizzier for me. I've never totally lightened my hair and after seeing what highlights do, I'm afraid to try.

    Try a deep treatment, maybe one with protein. I think protein is supposed to help fill in the "holes" caused by chemical damage, and it sounds to me that your hair may be a bit stressed after your coloring. I found ApHOGEE at Sally's. It was a little over $2 for a two treatment pack. If you're following CG, it does have Amodimethicone in it, but it's pretty far down on the ingredients list.

    Give it a few days, use lots of conditioner and hopefully it will bounce back soon.

    Good luck.

    Oh I forgot. Sometimes deep treatments will help cause the color to fade faster.

    Yeah, I think you're supposed to wait 10 days before doing a protein DT.

    Give it a few days Angella, coloring can "shock" your hair, but sometimes it just goes back to its old self after a few days of recovery.
