Can you have product in your hair before dying it?
The color will take better.” FALSE. Hair color is always best absorbed on clean hair. A buildup of oils and styling products may protect your scalp from being irritated by chemicals, but a dirty head of hair will only turn off your stylist. Try washing your hair the night before you color it for perfect results.
Should hair be free of product before coloring?
As it turns out, most hair dyes are designed to work better on hair that is not freshly washed. While you should skip the shampoo and conditioner the day of coloring, feel free to wash your hair the night before. And if you’re trying to get a few more days out of your style, just reach for a good dry shampoo.
Can you dye your hair with mousse in it?
Most hair styling products, such as mousse, gel, or hairspray contain chemicals that can interfere with both semi-permanent or permanent hair dyes. If there’s hair product residue still in your hair, it blocks the peroxide from saturating the hair evenly, and the hair dye, therefore, cannot color the strands evenly.
How do I prepare my hair for coloring?
A good rule of thumb is to shampoo your hair at least 24 to 48 hours before your coloring session, unless otherwise directed. You want there to be a natural protective oil layer on your scalp to act as a barrier against the chemicals in the hair dye.
Can I dye my hair the same day I wash it?

It’s best to color hair that has been washed 24 to 48 hours prior, because the natural oils will protect your scalp from any irritation.
Is it better to dye your hair wet or dry?

You’ll want to stick with dyeing your strands while they’re dry. Coloring your hair while it’s wet is best for subtle results and looks that are less likely to cause damage.
Does bleach stick better to clean or dirty hair?

How long should you not wash your hair before coloring it?
It’s best to wash your hair 1-2 days before your appointment! Light, natural oils will help prevent your scalp from feeling itchy or too tingly when color touches it whether it’s toner or a root touch up.
Should I cut my hair before or after I color it?
Because you shouldn’t wash your hair before getting a color treatment, Papanikolas says that most salons do the color before the cut. “If you are only doing a slight trim, it’s not a big issue, but if you plan to do a major cut it’s best to do them on separate days,” he says.
Why does hair have to be dry to dye it?
You’re urged to use permanent dyes on dry hair because the oils in your hair are supposed to protect your hair, but they can also keep your hair from accepting color.
