Stylist Tips

  • Wear gloves + start with clean, freshly shampooed hair.
  • Towel-dry hair 80% (pigments won't bind to your hair if it's really wet).
  • Apply liberally, making sure every strand is saturated.
  • Use a wide-tooth comb such as the Detangler Comb to help evenly distribute.
  • The longer you leave the treatment in your hair, the more deposit you'll get.
  • Rinse well with tepid water.
  • Apply to baby hairs around the hairline last if you are using a really pigmented shade since they are more porous + absorb more.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can we help you?
Browse the topics below to find what you're looking for.


How do Clean Beauty Color Protect products help protect color-treated hair?

The products are infused with antioxidant-rich pomegranate extract, known to help prevent color fade from environmental exposure and free radical damage.

What is the difference between color protection and color safe?

The new Color Protect formulas are color safe and formulated with ingredients that provide UVA and UVB protection to help preserve color. All Clean Beauty formulas are color safe, which means they have been tested for safe use on color-treated hair.

What are key considerations when selecting a shade of Color Depositing Treatment?

We recommend the shade that's closest to your color-treated hair for a refresh between professional color services. If the hair is highlighted or porous, a strand test is recommended.

How should I apply Color Depositing Treatment?

  • Wear protective gloves.
  • Apply to clean, damp hair. For longer lengths, sectioning is recommended.
  • Completely saturate the hair and use a detangling comb.
  • Clip hair up to prevent skin staining.
  • Leave on for 4-10 minutes to refresh color. For maximum deposit and vibrancy, leave on for 10 minutes.

Do I need to use a conditioner before applying Color Depositing Treatment?

Conditioner is not required. If detangling is needed, Clean Beauty Color Protect Conditioner can be applied to hair and rinsed before applying Color Depositing Treatment on damp hair.

Can I use Color Depositing Treatment with their other Clean Beauty favorites?

Yes. Clean Beauty Color Protect Shampoo and Conditioner are the ideal choice, but all Clean Beauty products are color safe and can be used with Color Depositing Treatment.

How often should I use Color Depositing Treatment?

Less is best! Based on frequency of shampooing, recommend using Color Depositing Treatment weekly or monthly, depending on how much color deposit they want to achieve. Regular use will gradually increase color results.

How long can I expect the color deposit to remain in their hair?

It depends on the overall condition, porosity, frequency of shampooing, environmental exposure and/or hot tool use. This product is not recommended as a stand-alone coloring product or for use on overly lightened or highly porous hair. Do not apply it to dry hair.

Will Color Depositing Treatment stain hands, clothes or skin?

Yes, it may cause staining. We recommend wearing gloves, careful application, using dark towels and immediately cleaning surfaces.

If color over-deposits, how can I speed up fading?

Normal shampooing will fade the color deposit over time. Paul Mitchell® Shampoo Two® can be used to help reduce over-deposit.
