Hair health is obviously important to us, but curly girls don't like to feel trapped by their hair care regimen. It is possible to have healthy curls even if you're coloring them if you prepare your hair beforehand, choose the right dye, and maintain your moisture afterwards. Here's how you can do that at home.
Deep condition before
Before you alter the natural state of your hair, it's always a good idea to do a deep conditioning treatment. This gives you the best chance of maintaining your hair health and length. Do your deep conditioning treatment 3 or more days prior to coloring so that the hair is a tad dry and better absorbs the color.
Use your own oil

What is on your hair?
If you have previous colored or chemically treated your hair this may affect your at-home hair color results. Please be aware that if you have previously used henna it is best to advise a cosmetologist to ask about duration between color treatments and how your current color might respond.
