Full Answer

Many shampoos and conditioners can coat the hair or cause the color to come out completely different than what is desired. Wash hair 24 hours before coloring, and do not put any products in the hair. Styling products can also coat strands of hair, making it impossible for hair dye to penetrate hair strands, which also leads to undesirable colors or hair color that fades quickly.
