  • It's best to wait at least a few days but if this is a ER cover up... I have done that before with no ill effects just condition really good.

  • Also if this is a cover up go with a dark color that says 'golden' So like Dark Golden Brown. Bleached hair can easily turn Green or grey with basic darks. (Yes I have screwed up my hair so many times I actually know this! -pretty bad huh?) :0)

  • It is best to wait at least a week to dye your hair after you have put bleach on/in it unless you are trying to go for the bald look...

  • I think I would ask a stylist to help me with that. You could do severe damage to your hair.

  • Yes it is better for your hair if you wait a coupe of days. However, I have been coloring AND frosting my hair since i was 20. I am 51 now, still dying my hair regularly and still frost it. My hair is damaged and dry, but still have it and its stil thick. Condition, condition, condition.
