I'm going to slightly disagree with curlyinohio. I just read a couple of articles by a hair expert with a degree in science and healthcare about coloring hair and porosity. According to the article, coloring hair damages the cuticle layer causing it to become porous. The repair for such extreme damage is PROTEIN. Now, since your hair is very vulnerable, I would do light protein treatments 1x per week immediately followed by deep moisture (protein free) conditioning. The article suggested Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner as a gentle protein treatment. You can follow this up with
Jessicurl Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatment
or CJ Curl Rehab Moisturizing Hair Treatment for the deep moisture treatment. I would leave the protein treatment on for the minimum amount of time and the moisture treatment on for 1 hour. This should help get your hair back to normal.
