    Chemically treated hair will always be more porous than natural hair, so while you might experience that the colour gets deposited more easily and initially looks richer, it will also come out more easily due to the increased porosity.

    No, don't do that. It runs a high risk of damaging your hair.

    I wouldn't combine these two. Chances are that you're going to damage your hair beyond repair. Porous hair takes up dye easily but it will fade quickly too.

    Ok..Yes, that's true that chemically treated hair will always be more porous than natural hair. I have just learned that as I am transitioning from relaxed to natural, and I've also learned that when I was both relaxing and coloring, the color did look richer, and came out more easily due to the increased porosity.

    Yes, you are so very right. I could damage it if I do it. I will just color instead of relaxing.

    That's is so very true. I'm not going to combine those these two together. I will just color instead. Ok, thank you all for your responses! That's really good advice.

    Hey, I've got another question: If your hair sheds more than normal and your scalp itches on the 7th day. Or, after a week from a hair wash. Is it okay to wash your hair more frequently? Because, I've noticed that when I wash my hair 3 times a week. Or, everyday I have less shedding and itching.

    Everyone’s scalp is different! I think an itchy scalp is a good indicator that it’s time to wash. I could not go 7 days without washing, maybe some day but not now.

    Yes, you are very right! I agree that an itchy scalp is a good indicator that it's time to wash. I also couldn't go 7 days without washing either. Yeah, I know what you mean about maybe someday but not now.

    How can I understand if I'm having just seasonal shedding or telogen effluvium?

    measure your ponytail circumference.
    I measure my ponytail circ. in situations like:
    - humidity: it makes my hair silky, fine and compressible
    - summer: usually when my ponytail circ. can reach up to 9 cm.
    - when your hair is freshly washed and dry
    Well I don't have [volume on the] crown because I'm not a queen.

    Oh, I'm doing it. I've lost ~0,4 inches in two months. But I don't know how much is too much.
    Side note, I shed just few strands per day in normal conditions. Now it's like 3 times that. But I have a lot of new hair long 3 to 4 inches, which are too short to fit into a ponytail.
