  • Are you re-dying to cover up a botched job?

    1. Wash with dish soap to strip all the dye out that you can.
    2. Deep condition with a water based conditioner. Not hot oil.
    3. Re-color the next day.

    Otherwise, roots usually don't show fro 6 weeks.

  • 4 weeks but if your like me I'd want to do it sooner bc I either didn't like it or just wanting to hide the grey.

  • I do 4-6 weeks.

  • Depends on if it was box color or if it was done at a salon. If it was store bought boxed color.. wait at least a couple weeks!
    If it was done at a salon, they can fix it same or next day (chemicals used in salons are MUCH less damaging and harmful than boxed colors!!!)
