"Should I wash my hair before I come in for my hair color?"
"I haven't washed my hair in 3 days will the color still work?"
"I have a ton of hair product in my hair is that going to affect anything?"
I am frequently asked these questions and the answer to all is...it's fine! Washed, not washed, gobbed full of product, that color or lightener is going to cut right though it all.
The only time you should really worry about it is if you will be having a high lift color or even more important an entire on scalp lightening service using bleach. When you shampoo your hair you probably make sure you scrub that scalp really well and this is where the problem lies. When you stimulate the scalp you are getting the blood flowing and opening the pores which could be an ouchie when the lightener hits that skin. If you have ever had a color service you know you get a tingly sensation when the color is processing sometimes, if you scrub the scalp it could cause that tingle to be a burn!
Bottom line is, when you come see me for a color service don't stress about dirty hair, or too clean of hair or that you needed to use the entire can of hairspray today, What matters is that you come in, have some coffee and lets make you feel nice and spiffed up!
