Protein treatments & color treated hair

Do protein treatments pull out color??:confused:

I'm getting highlights tomorrow and was wondering if doing a protein treatment soon after color will pull out or fade the color. What I have done in the past is wait a few days after color and do a Nexxus Emergencee protein treatment then a nice DT. Would it be better to skip the protein for about a week or so and instead just do the DT with a ACV rinse?

    Usually, it is better to do the protein DT before the color, or wait until 7-10 days after. It also depends on the color product they use.

    Ok, thanks, thats what I thought. I did do a protein treatment & DT last week but I probably should have done it this week pre color.

    A week or so before is fine. :)
