Coat your hair well with coconut oil, argan oil before starting. These oils penetrate your hair deeply, strengthening it and protecting it from damage during the chemical treatment. The oil doesn't interfere with the bleach or dyes. Afterwards, use a low poo (some people just use lots of conditioner) to get the excess oil out. Your hair will be soft and healthy when you're done!
