I'm not a stylist, but just going by what I've read on the forums, I know you should do a PT before you color, so your color comes out more even, and then after you color, give it at least a week before doing another one (or else the protein will kind of replace the color and you'll lose some of that color). Also, doing a DT afterwards is also supposed to help with damage.

Hopefully, others can chime in (either to correct me or give more advice). Hope this helps.
