What’s first keratin or color?

Some might say color should come first, since the keratin treatment locks the color in.

Some might say the color  should come second,  since the keratin lightens up the color. 

I always individualize the treatments based on the persons hair. Some people don’t lose the color and some people do. Most times, the order doesn’t really matter.

I usually like my clients to have their color done about two weeks  before or after that way they don’t interrupt each other. The longer the keratin is in the hair, the less disruptive it is with the color.  The reason is often the keratin treatment might serves as a barrier to the color.

If you’re trying to cover your gray, It might be more difficult with a fresh keratin treatment. It always helps when the keratin has washed off the hair a few weeks for better coverage.
