What do you do BEFORE coloring your hair?

For example, wash it, deep condition, etc.
And how long before you get your hair colored do you do these things?
I try to deep condition the wash right before I color, and then again a week after
whurly girly (2C/3A).
thick; medium/coarse; low porosity.
hair that is drier than the sahara desert.

LOW-POO: Renpure Organics
CO: L'Oreal EverCreme Cleansing Conditioner
RO: Renpure Keratin Conditioner. New HG!
LI: L'Oreal EverSleek Humidity-Defying LI Creme
Styling: SM Curl Milk, Argan Oil for sealing, sometimes GFPC Gel, some honey for hold, TIGI Control Freak Serum!!
I have been told by different stylists (Ouidad ones) that I should either deep condition 3 days at a minimum before or after color. I'm really bad at NOT doing my deep conditioning....period. Also, that I should rinse the deep conditioning treatment out with COLD water. Currently I color my hair myself since 2009 due to budget issues. Prior to that always had salon color every 6 weeks and my stylist during that time never told me to deep condition, so I was clueless.
Curls 3a & 3b
Fine but thick shoulder length hair
Still trying to figure out the porosity and if my hair loves or hates protein
Shampoo and Conditioner: L'Oreal Eversleek
Styling Products: Jessicurl RR & CC
Hair color: Nice 'N Easy semi-permanent (box color)
Last haircut was a Devacut, prior to that a Ouidad cut, prior to that an ordinary layered cut.
Picture in my Avatar is from last summer, a bad layered cut growing out, and I had just started using Jessicurl products.
