My hair is naturally curly with short, tight curls. I want to get a texturizer but I have permanent color in my hair, so I’ve been doing a wet set to achieve the look I prefer. Is there a type of texturizer that will not conflict with my permanent haircolor? —Britany

You will need to look for a color-treated formula, but be sure to read manufacturer instructions to be sure that your particular level of color will work in conjunction with the product. And you’ll want to be particularly careful if you have gone into the blonde tones. I can’t stress enough how important it is to read the manufacturer recommendations for use. Or, better still, it may be safer to consult with a professional stylist who specializes in the services you desire.
