7. Condition your hair
Prepare your hair two days before having it colored by applying a deep hair-conditioning treatment. This will strengthen your hair, as it will add moisture to your dry and damaged hair. Enough moisture in your hair means more absorption of the color, making it look even better after coloring. Do wash your hair the night before coloring your hair because doing it on the same day could risk your scalp from accidental scratchers. The hair color is a chemical mixture and it could irritate open wounds in your scalp.
