~ Skip the shampoo a few days prior, but again, make sure it's manageable. 

~ If you use a root cover spray or stick I do recommend washing it out or removing it before the appointment because sometimes the color may not penetrate enough to cover the grey. 


~ I do recommend that you wait 24-48 hours after color to wash your hair. This gives the cuticle of your hair a chance to close down before shampooing hair. 

~ Use a good quality Shampoo and Conditioner to prolong color.


~ If swimming in the ocean or pool I do recommend that you wet hair with fresh water to prevent hair from absorbing salt water or chlornated water which can be harsh on hair color.
