I'm going to be bleaching AND coloring my hair soon. Any tips?
I need help on what I should do before or after to reduce damage but keep color.
That's a great question! Know that color penetrates deep into the hair shaft and to do so the outer layer of your hair's cuticle can get damaged. Be safe and consult your colorist for the right regimen to keep your hair healthy before and after you color it.
Deep condition a least a day before the process and then apply coconut oil liberally to the hair so the bleach can strip away the added oil and not all the ones that are already in the hair. I did that and had very little damage to my hair my curls didn't change in texture but i did have higher porosity afterwards
