you should not use this product 5 days before or after have a color treatment, more specifically bleach, this is because the deep pigmentation and the deep penetration of the product may cause discoloration with hair that has been damaged by bleach.

probably because the oils it leaves on the hair prior to a chemical treatment may impact the chemicals efficiency. (ex: Japanese perm may not stick on hair that is too oily) I'm not sure about after... but I hope this helps

I am thinking that this may have something to do with the color of the product. I have black hair and I used it the day that I got my hair colored and nothing happened. It does state that it could cause "temporary discolorment" which leads me to believe it is from the color of the product. This probably affects blondes more, but don't quote me on that.

I bet it has something to do with how well the chemical process will 'take' to your hair. It adds a coating to make your hair soft and manageable. The chemical process may not be able to penetrate as well.

This works well, when used sparingly..there is such a thing as over conditioning!
I have very fine, wavy, brittle hair. I perm and color, so it was always really damaged. running my hands thru my hair was like hearing rice crispies!!
it didnt grow either, would get to my shoulder, and snap off.
first off, get a good hair cut. i know it sucks, but no amount of product will fix whats wrong.
then I would invest in carols daughter. no kidding! even my hair dresser commented on "new growth" all over. its growing like a weed, its soft, bouncy, healthy looking and shiny!! and they are all natural:)
it takes a while with them to find the right amount...too much can make your hair greasy, but once you do, its a miracle worker! i didnt used to beable to use product because it wieghed my hair down and made it look worse. but the more of CDs i use, the better my hair looks. ive used every expensive brand out there trying to repair YEARs of damage, but her products are reasonable.
On my hair i use the black vanilla shampoo and smoothie conditioner. spray in conditioner. margarites magic, hair milk and kizzis. even if they turn out to be too much for your hair, you can use at night and wash out.
at the very least try the margarites magic...

Hello I would reccommend protein treatments if you've had a lot of chemical damage..(highlights,lowlights,color,perm,relaxer,etc) It's it's dry you need moisture, and your hair is probably lacking shine...if it's brittle and breaking you need both moist. and protein. Redken extreme is great, or pureology repair. Stop coloring it, give your hair a break and you will see results. the more treatments the better. you could also have hard water build up on your hair and that could prevent your hair from growing. also check with your Doctor to see how your thyroids are...that could also be a problem...I would also not use heat on your hair for a while, it'll just make it break even more :o) hope this helps!

If it is as damaged as you say you may have to go for a short cut to get the damage out a begin anew. I am not sure of the length of your hair now but for some people the thought of cutting ones hair is enough to send them in to a panic, myself included, but as long as it is breaking and damaged you can spend I mint on great products but it not going to help. I recently went from relaxed shoulder length hair to natural and I cut alot off to do this but it was so worth it and I wish I had done it sooner, My hair is growing so much faster now and it is back to it's full healthy state and I just love it!!!

I have thick hair that can hold a lot of product, and I had to shampoo my hair thoroughly every time I used this product-- otherwise I was left with a greasy mess. Based on this, I would think someone with fine hair would definitely have to shampoo afterwards. I didn't notice a big difference in terms of leaving on the product for 20 minutes and even overnight-- but if you leave it on too long I wonder if it might weigh your fine hair down....

Well I left it on for about an hour & it made my hair really soft manageable after. I think 20 minutes would the be the minimum to really get our money's worth. You would have to use shampoo afterwards to get it out - it's kind of like putting olive oil on your hair - just plain water wouldn't get that out.

i usually leave it on for 30 minutes or more, in the instructions it comes with it says you can leave it in over night with a shower cap on (to keep you bed clean) for an intense restorative session, and you would most definately want to shampoo it out after it is an oil so if you dont wash it out your hair will stay super oily. their shampoo and conditioners are amazingggg too

I don't know if it will destroy it keeping it in the fridge, but I would try keeping it in the coolest room in your place. When it does melt just pop it in for an hour so it will solidify again, but any room that stays under 86 degrees should be fine.

i dont think you should use it everyday. its made out of natural ingredients but im sure it will do the opposite if you dont give it some time to relax away from the chemicals. have you tried using organic shampoo and conditioner? for people who chemically treat hair, the best thing you can do for it is to use the most gental hair products. i recommend john masters hibiscus and honey shampoo and lavender avocado conditioner. pricy but works great on my hair.

I would not use this product every day... it is a bit much because you have to wash it all out as well everyday... hair should be protected and it is not recommended to wash every day!
I'd say twice a week it is enough.
try using a leave in conditioner perhaps in between washing
there are other alternatives for repairing hair from the inside out like Renee Furterer hair and scalp treatment also sold at Sephora, this will help a lot with the growth of new healthy hair, you should read into it, I just started using it myself and it is working!!!
I am a product junky myself and I believe that every line has something great to offer, so I mix them up a bit!
good luck!!! and give your hair a rest, over-processing can sure damage your tresses!

My boyfriend has a slightly oily scalp, so I have him use it sparingly towards the roots and concentrate more of it on the ends and his hair isn't greasy/oily after the 1st shampoo. I don't have an oily scalp, so by saturating my hair, it helps tame the flyaways/frizz. I also use it to concentrate on areas of my scalp that might be drier than others and leave it on overnight...but, I don't recommend it for someone that has and oily scalp/oily hair.
