I washed it this morning.
Directions say dry, unwashed hair.
Should I wait until tomorrow?

Go roll around outside, then it's cool.

I usually dye my hair before I take a shower.

I usually take a shower every morning including on the days I go get my hair done. My stylist has never asked me not to wash it before.

I think it's because technically your natural oils in your hair will help protect it from the harsh chemicals.

I have never seen the box instructions say unwashed hair...if your hair is dirty then it means you have an extra layer on top of the hair cuticle that the chemicals have to break through in order to actually work their way into the hair shaft. Putting color on top of dirty hair will actually leave it uneven and splotchy.

Color  does actually take better to dirty hair for some reason. My hairstylist has told me this, and I have noticed it.
