Default Protein Treatment Questions

I have not done protein treatments on my hair so I have a few questions. I have color treated hair and read on the forum that you should do the treatment about 1 week before you color. Will doing a treatment affect the way your hair absorbs the color or change it in any way when it is getting colored?

Also looking for suggestions on protein treatments. My hair profile is fine/normal/normal.. My hair profile suggested CJ Repair Me and Spiral Solutions Repair

Thanks

Protein treatment at salons have become quite expensive.Instead of buying the pricey treatment one can make your own at home as they are natural with frequent use one get a long lasting hair.Egg is the best source of protein for hair. Take one egg or two depending on the length and thickness of your hair. Beat until frothy and apply it to your hair and scalp. Make sure all your hair is properly covered with egg. Cover with a shower cap and leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse with cold water .

Some hardcore hydrolysed protein fillers can help even out porosity which may help permanent colour take more evenly. The DIY gelatin treatment has never been studied so the effects are unknown, although I haven't seen anyone claim it has negatively affected dying and I can'[t think of any reason why it would.

Sorry but egg is not a good protein treatment, the proteins are too large to be absorbed or adhere to the hair, if you get any effect it's far more likely to be down to the fats in the yolk.

I second what Firefox said!!! Eggs molecular weight is too large, this is a very big misconception.
