If I'm being honest, I don't really use it soon after I use the deep treatment because the deep treatments lasts some time without too much color loss. The hydration it adds is amazing! and if I don't fall asleep with my hair wet there is significantly less frizz! Some people may not like the minty smell but I love it
Unless I decide to bleach my roots again, I don't think I'll be visiting a salon other than for a blow out or a hair cut!
