Worried!
 
Okay, I colored my hair tonight. As I was waiting for the time to be up so I could rinse it out I was reading the Colorsilk box. I have used this many times, also know many on here like it as well. I thought only the conditioner packet had cones.....NOPE!

I believe dimethicone and cyclopentasiloxane were in the cream developer, they were at the very bottom. So I figured what difference would it make if I used the conditioner as well. Apparently the coloring part had a sulfate in it as well, and the conditioner had cocoamidopropyl betaine in it along with amodimethicone.
I know I shouldn't touch my hair for at least 72 hours-I'm fine with that. The thing is that I no poo, so what can I do about those cones?:scratch:

Thank you!

You will most llikely have to sulphate poo it all out after the 72 hours but it's ok. One sulphate poo wont kill your hair. I have also heard that a lot of curlies follow a color with a protein treatment and a DT...anyone else? I colored my own hair last time with a natural dye and had no issues.

I use Colorsilk religiously every six weeks, and I find it to be extremely gentle, despite the bit of yuck ingredients. I low-poo after 48 hours, and my hair is just fine. In fact, coloring always seems to leave my hair in BETTER condition.

I know it becomes a matter of pride after a while when you`ve been no-poo for a long time. I don`t think theres any other way to get those blasted cones out. :(

I DT 2 days before and a few days after.

Unlike most other people, I also co-wash right after highlights. I have an allergy to hair dye and even with foils some makes its way to my scalp. I have to get it off or I end up with little `cigarette burns` on my scalp (or worse). My colour doesn`t seem to fade out any quicker than anyone else`s. I`m really not sure that it`s entirely necessary to have a waiting period. I know opinions vary greatly on this subject but my stylist told me that older dyes took time to develop but the newer ones are fine. :dontknow:

My stylist also told me that with the newer coloring systems, you don't have to wait to shampoo or co-wash like you used to have to. This is good because I don't wait. My stylist uses shampoo and conditioner with cones, which doesn't bother me, but I do want to wash them out fairly soon after I get my hair done.

I also do a protein DT 7 days before and 7-10 days after color.

Cowash for a few days afterwards and see how your hair acts before trying a shampoo. You might be pleasantly surprised and not need to shampoo. We want to see pictures!

Okay, thanks ladies! I dyed it fairly close to my natural color. Cause I have highlights growing out and had 3 inches of some gray roots, I didn't want the rainbow look anymore! I need to get a battery for my camera.

So do you guys think the sulfate and cocoa betaine would cancel out those cones-especially if they were like the last two or three ingredients?

Yes it is a pride thing, I don't want to use a sulfate, but looks like I did with the color anyway! I really want to style my hair today....if I just wet it and style it would it be okay? Or do you think that's just as bad as shampooing too early?

whatsercurl 04-05-2009 10:13 AM

I don't wait, doesn't sound like MsG does either and speckla's right - co-washing may be enough.

I used the K-pak which has mineral oil that's only supposed to come out with poo. But I didn't have any issues with build-up and just co-washing.

marinacurlz 04-05-2009 10:18 AM

Okay, I just co washed with that suave cherry blossom and put some suave coconut as a leave in....my hair feels sooooo much better! So does my scalp! Yaaa!:laughing8:

whatsercurl 04-05-2009 10:21 AM

YAY!!! :blob7:

Marinacurlz,
Your hair is gorgeous! See, I told ya (in a good way) that it'd work. Your hair looks a lot like mine does when it's to shoulder and shorter layers.
Mine layers are longer and I get more tunnel-y type curls right now...but yours are so spring-y and pretty!

marinacurlz 04-05-2009 10:25 AM

Thanks for the advice everyone! I'd have to say I didn't realize so many of you color your hair, it looks great and you sure fooled me!
