Color or Curls

I have the curly thing and I color my hair professonally. I wonder, when I'm searching for conditioners, should I be more concerned with how a product affects my hair color or my curls.
I'm thinking color because I want to keep it as fresh as possible. Today I bought ColorVive by L'Oreal, whaichis what I've been using for years. I almost went with the Marc Anthony product specifically for curly hair, which also noted that it was ok for color treated hair. It was an extra $3, so that swayed me too. I needed to save some dough.
BTW, I use leave in condit from mixed chicks, but I like to condition in the shower before.
I'm a color treated curly, and I look for products that can handle both. For me, going red, I can't use much glycerin without color fading, so I avoid that in my products. You may just have to go through some trail and error to find items that are friendly to both you curls and your color.

I try to cg, so I have to beware of silicones in conditioners that claim to be for color treated hair.

Bear in mind that if you're CG or modified CG, your color will last longer anyway since you're not using harsh sulfates to clean your hair. So that's good for both your curls and your color.
