    Default quick question

    does ones hair need to be scruplesly clean to put a box home colour through??

    It's been 3 days since the last shampoo. I usually only wash it once a week.

    It's Loreal Paris, Sublime Mouse and it says to put onto Dry hair.

    But........... Does it need to be CLEAN hair? Is my Question.

    TIA

    I haven't used that dye before but, I believe it is better to dye over clean hair unless it the instructions otherwise, if you aim is to have the colour stick as much a possible. If I remember right, dye takes best when hair has been clarified but not conditioned. So you condition after the dying process instead. However that can be quite harsh for your hair. But I am no hairdresser, perhaps someone else can chip in?

    I have always colored my hair several days after wash day without washing it first. But i don't really use any products, like hairspray or gel, in my hair.
    There are a lot of People here on LHC who use cocunut oil in hair before bleaching/coloring so I Don't think it is that important to have clean hair.

    My mom uses chemical dye, and she only washes her hair before if she has spray / product in it... Her hairdresser told her it's better not to use the dye on the same day she washes her hair, as the natural oils protect the scalp skin so she tries to do it on second or third day after wash whenever she can...
    I don't remember what brand she uses though, so I have no idea if your brand is the same...

    I have used box hair dyes for years and I have always preferred doing it when my hair was greasy, or at least a day or so after a wash. It makes no difference though

    I also dyed when my hair was dirty as the oils protect the hair.

    I always prefer to dye on greasy/oily hair, I think it does protect the hair more from the harshness of the dyes. Sometimes I even oil my hair first and then dye it.

    I too always dyed on 'dirty' hair. Id dye instead of washing actually, as the process cleanes my hair, so I'd effectivly skip a wash
