All I can say is….. leave it to the professionals!
Permanent coloring and relaxer services are some of the most popular choices when visiting the salon. It is important that you keep a maintenance schedule after receiving these services to insure that the integrity of your hair is not jeopardized. For A-list celebrities, missing a salon appointment is like missing a shower,(not pretty!) and it should be the same for you.
When making the decision to chemically process those lovely locks (no matter what your hair-type or texture ), keep in mind that both services require a deep conditioning treatment at least two to three weeks after being performed. It is safe to retouch new growth only, 4-6 weeks with color, and 6-8 weeks when relaxing hair. With relaxed hair, you may notice shedding after eight weeks, which you definitely want to avoid.
If you would like to give your hair a little extra oomph or shine in between color applications (and who wouldn't love that!), ask your stylist for cellophane treatment or any other professional High-Gloss serum for the time being. It will give your hair a more vibrant appearance without chemically altering, or damaging the hair shaft.
