You can still color your hair. While I was on treatment, I was a "high lift" blonde color...meaning, I used highest level color developer there was and everything was fine. I did ask my doctor before continuing with the color process, which I suggest you do. Still expect your doctor to give you the go ahead. If you are coloring your hair a darker or close to your natural color, you can use a 10 volume developer. If you are going lighter than your natural color you will have to use 20 volume and up developer. Owned and operated my own salon for 20 years in case you were wondering.
