  • No , The dye will expand and pretty much blow up. then you will have dye stains everywhere.

  • Absolutely not. But, in the future, you can mix up half of it, and leave half unmixed to use next time.

  • It says in the instuctions to dispose immediately after use, if there are leftover contents it will blow up, plus after a few minutes it starts the dye process and is no good afterwards anyways.

  • NO NO NO NO NO!!!!! It is not good anymore after like 30 minutes to an hour after mixed, just long enough to use!

    If the one you like is super expensive then ask around and see if you can get a coupon for it! Sometimes you can find them online! If you know someone who is a coupon clipper then ask them to keep an eye out for you, also check out drug store sale ads, sometimes they have a Buy one Get one half off or even free sometimes, and they will usually accept coupons!!!

  • Hair color become deactivated in about an hour after it is mixed. It won't work.

  • I'm just curious but am I like one of a handful who's actually read the instructions passed the part that tells you how long to let the dye in? It is usually in big letters NOT TO DO THAT.
