  1. I have done mine before, I waited only 24 hours and my hair was perfectly Ok afterwards, as long as youre using a darker color and nothing that would bleach your hair you should be OK. Although I did try coloring my hair once within 2 weeks of a perm, and it turned green at the ends!

  2. at least a few weeks to a month…but if it is really that bad & u dont wanna walk around wit it then do it sooner…
    good luck!

  3. u can dye it the next day, juz make sure u dont dye it again anytime soon. at least 4 weeks or so. then start using a good shampoo and conditioner every other day to keep it healthy and make sure u get ur hair trimmed about every 3 weeks.

  4. What does the terrible job look like? Depending on how damaged your hair is and what you plan on doing with it in the future will determine if you should color over it or not. you dont get split ends from coloring your hair.
