I heard that applying coconut oil to your hair before dying it works like Olaplex, lessening the damage that the dye has on your hair, and just like with Olaplex you leave the dye on for about ten minutes longer, so I hear. I thought I would give it a go. What I did was I applied coconut oil to my hair before bed, giving it extra time to nourish my hair, then in the morning I applied the dye. I washed it out after 50 minutes and the end result was wonderful. I only applied the dye it to my routs due to the fact that I was covering up my greys, reason being that I had to leave the dye on for 50 minutes, so that it did dye over those stubborn hairs. Dying over greys makes them so brittle, greys are so much more delicate than melanin rich hair, and I am finding that doing this is my hair saviour :). My hair is now flawless each time I do this.
What do you think? Have you heard about this or tried it?
