- Do not condition hair prior to applying dye. It will prevent the hair from truly absorbing the color. If your hair feels like it need the moisture after the bleaching process deep condition, wait a few days, wash with only shampoo, dry, then apply the dye.
- Apply Vaseline, A&D ointment (I have this for my tattoos), or a thick body butter on skin around hair lines to avoid staining. Try not to get onto the actual hair though.
- If staining skin does occur it can be easily removed using nail polish remover.
- Apply original application a couple hours before going to bed leaving some dye in the bottle. Right before going to bed remove your shower cap, take some more dye from the bottle and apply through ends of hair with hands. Tips of hair can be the most stubborn. Reapply shower cap and go to sleep. Note: To ensure shower cap does not move in the night you can pull it tight to the back of your neck and rubber band.
- Cover your pillow with old case or unwanted towel in case cap does move.
- Do not apply heat to hair while dye is in. This is a misconception. Yes, it will momentarily process faster but the problem is that once the dye has dried processing seizes. It's best to just allow the natural heat from you scalp do the work for you.
- Rinse dye out using the coldest water you can withstand. Avoid warm or hot water.
- Do not rinse until water runs clear. You WILL rinse the majority of the color out this way. Rinse until the your hair does not feel stiff with product then towel dry with either an unwanted towel or blot with paper towels.
- Wear gloves even when rinsing dye out. It will dye your nails.
- Continue to sleep with unwanted towel or pillow case after hair has been freshly dyed. Typically I have no problems with bleeding but better safe then sorry.
