How can you avoid such problems and when is the right time to dye your locks after the keratin treatment? Find out all the answers in this article!

Performing keratin treatment on colored hair is considered a more favorable option. With the help of keratin straightening, the color will be sealed inside the hair and its vividness will last longer.

However, in this case there are some peculiarities. If you want to dye your hair in any dark shade, then at least 10 days should pass before keratin. If you want to  achieve light shades, then the keratin straightening procedure can be carried out no earlier than 20 days later. After highlighting, you’ll have to wait for 30 days in order to safely perform keratin hair treatment.

Thus, choosing between hair coloring before keratin treatment and after it, you should stop at the first option. According to experts, it’s more effective and less risky. The perfect time for hair dyeing after keratin treatment is not earlier than 3 weeks. After this time, the keratin layer will become more flexible and the hair scales will be ready to open up again.
