Though oVertone conditioners don't contain any harsh ingredients, the perming process contains chemicals that are similar to the ones you'll find in lighteners and developers. So when you head to the salon for your perming service, you may see your color fade or transition into a new hue. We always recommend fading your strands as far as possible before seeing your stylist for any chemical service.

So, for the best results and truest color payout, you'll definitely want to fade before perming and apply oVertone after your curls are set!
