Add coconut oil to your hair color????

I was watching Dr. Oz and the author of "Passport to Beauty" suggested adding coconut oil directly to your hair color. Anyone heard of this or tried this before? Sometimes the guests on this show have weird suggestions. Seems as if it might prevent the color from taking. Thoughts?

I think it would prevent my color from taking, Color by Robert Craig. Never heard of doing that.

Instead of mixing hair color and oil I do a pre-treatment with coconut oil on dry hair for at least one hour before coloring. I donīt wash it out so I figure itīs basically the same thing. The Coconut Oil doesnīt interfere with the color uptake at all and it feels wonderful afterwards - not at all rough and frizzy. Before I started this it always took my hair a few days to get back to normal after coloring (I use Goldwell Colorance PH 6,8 demi permanent color on a regular basis)


Here is a thread at The British Culies forum about it:

Pre-oiling with coconut oil before chemical colour to help prevent damage | Curly Hair Forum by British Curlies


And here is a link to LHC (the original thread):

Possible way to protect hair from conventional peroxide damage - The Long Hair Community Discussion Boards


Hope this helps...
Awesome! Thanks for the links. I knew someone would have some great info for me.
I'm in the process of reading the first link, but just based on the simple fact that the LHC thread is 139 pages, I plan to try it. And, my hair is a big fan of coconut oil.

Thanks for the info.
