My name is Dawn Shannon owner of Intuition Salon and Spa. So I have now rinsed and conditioned my client, I am going to comb out her hair and inspect the hair color. It looks good. I am then going to apply a leave in conditioner and color protector; this also has an SPF in it, which I think is good for protecting the hair from the sun. I am going to use a color safe styling product and then we are going to dry the hair and check the color. And that is how you prep the hair before styling after coloring.
