Yes, I noticed it at home when I was doing a coconut oil hot treatment on my hair. I noticed that the oil dripping on the side of my face, had some color on it :( I heard olive oil or oregano oil is better to prevent your color from fading.

It is true coconut oil does strip your hair color. I used coconut oil to help restore the dry brittleness on my hair and I just had my haired colored not to long ago. Well, as other oils I don't think so. Some time later I used an essential oil lavender with conditioner and looks great and moisturized as for color coming out durning a risen yes I seen some color but I figure it's normal because my hair color is not a prement color. As with coconut oil I used it without a conditioner and let set in for 30mintues rinsed off. If anything it was still dry and brittle and I noticed my color faded some. My experience was much better with lavender oil and conditioner and I dont see any fadeness. If anything iam willing to use lavender again.

Coconut oil will strip the color from your color treated hair.

Safe yes...but NEW

I work in a spa/salon and guests have had issues with some essential oils striping the color out. I would be cautious if you want your color to last. Safe... yes but if you just spent a lot of money to get your colored it would be a shame if it faded out early.

Yes, it's safe to use essential oils on color treated hair. I would suggest using 5 to 10 drops per 150ml bottle.

Hope that helps!
