If you color-treat your hair there are a few things you should know. First, Ouidad generally recommends using semi-permanent colors for curly hair because they are gentler than other coloring options. You will find that regular use of the Deep Treatment will help your color “take” better and last longer because when the protein chain in the hair is more complete, it can better hold color molecules.
For great color results, do a Deep Treatment about 3 days before your color process. If you have just gotten fresh color, wait up to 10 days before doing your deep treatment. Although the Deep Treatment formula itself will not strip color from your hair, it does require heating your hair, which will relax the cuticle edge and allow color to leach from the hair. By waiting at least 10 days you will allow your color to set and not risk color leaching
