Daily Conditioner Vs Coloring Conditioner: What Should I Use?
Question of the week: When choosing an oVertone conditioner, which one is right for you? Should you pick the Daily Conditioner, the Coloring Conditioner, or both?
Let’s tackle this first:
What’s the difference between the Daily Conditioner and the Coloring Conditioner?
The oVertone Daily Conditioner is meant to be just that – a daily conditioner. Use it whenever you shampoo or rinse your hair to replace the color you’re washing down the drain. It’s a great choice if you have oily hair or you don’t like heavy conditioners. Our Coloring Conditioner is meant to be used as often you would use a hair mask. Soak it in whenever your hair feels dry or faded. This tends to be a favorite of those with damaged or bleached hair.
The difference between them is similar to the difference between a daily face moisturizer and a heavy night mask. You don’t expect the daily moisturizer to do the job of a mask – they serve different purposes.
Do the Coloring Conditioner formulas contain more color than the Daily Conditioner formulas?
Yes. The Coloring Conditioner has extra hydrating ingredients and contains much more pigment.
Can I color my hair with the Daily Conditioner?
It’s possible, but we don’t recommend it unless you’re going for a very pale shade. Daily Conditioners are designed to replace color as you shampoo, not to color your hair.
What should I use if I want to add color to my natural hair?
We recommend that you use Coloring Conditioner in the color and intensity that you want until you are happy with the amount of color deposited. From there, switch to using the Daily Conditioner and sub in the Coloring Conditioner whenever you need a color refresh or moisture boost.
Can I stop dying my hair altogether if I use oVertone?
It depends on the color of your hair. If you are just adding color on top of your natural color – yes. But remember, oVertone conditioners only deposit color. They don’t lift or lighten your hair, so if your roots grow in darker than the rest of your hair, you’ll still have to lighten them.
How can I keep my hair as bright as possible using oVertone?
For maximum brightness, we recommend using our Daily Conditioner on a regular basis and subbing in the Coloring Conditioner about once a week.
How long will my hair stay bright with oVertone?
As long as you continue using the oVertone conditioners, your hair will stay bright.
Can I use the Coloring Conditioner as a daily conditioner?
Yes, you can, but keep in mind that our Coloring Conditioner is very hydrating. If you have healthy, fine to medium texture hair, you may find that daily use of the Coloring Conditioner is too heavy. If you are looking to add additional color but prefer a lighter conditioner, try the Extreme Daily Conditioner in your shade.
Can I use the Daily Conditioner without using the Coloring Conditioner once a week?
Absolutely. The Coloring Conditioner is an optional supplement that we recommend because of its hydrating, brightening goodness, but you can certainly use the Daily Conditioner on its own.
