Default protein treatment before or after color?

Hello all,

I'm a long-time lurker and finally a poster!

My hair is fine and porous, and loves all the protein I've given it thus far - I plan to use IAgirl's recipe this weekend but also need to color my hair - which should I do first?

Thanks in advance

do the PT first- and then wait about a week after you color before you do another. There's a theory that doing one too soon after you color will cause the protein to replace the color molecules in your hair causing it to fade

I agree with aimless6poet. That is my understanding also - that using protein too soon after you color will fade the color.

It's good to use it in advance.

Hi PerriP! Glad you have emerged from lurkdom.

How soon after doing the PT can you color? A day, a few days, a week? Thanks!

when I use neutral protein filler, you're supposed to apply the color right after drying it in your hair (per the instructions on the bottle). I assume you can follow any pt with color immediately.

If you're bleaching your hair, does it matter if you use it too soon after? Since fading is the only concern?
