Before Coloring My Hair

I would like to use a hair coloring at-home-kit that washes out in approx. 28 shampoos.  

I understand color is best applied on clean hair (without hairsprays, gel, mouse, etc.)?  

So, when I shampoo the day or two before applying the color.  Should I also skip the 'rinse-out conditioner' as well?

Thank you for your help :  )

Actually, you CAN color your hair with some junk in it!  It is also better not to wash your hair 2 days before you color it.  That prevents your hair from getting overly fried and too dry.  The natural oils that build up in your hair for 2 days will protect your hair from the color.

Just keep in mind that if you have ever colored your hair before and it is still on there, it will not be a temporary color! It be permanant on that part of your hair! Caution!

Ya gotta make sure it's just oily dirty, and NOT dirty from gobs of mousse and gel!  

I think that too much mousse and gel could screw up the color.

I color my hair all the time. Sometimes it is clean, and others, I color it first thing in the morning before washing.

Now, for the red shades, it is best to get the hair wet, this will help to hold the red hue better and it won't fade as quickly, as to the other colors, just follow the box instructions and make sure your hair is not full of hair products, this could cause the color to not be as it should.
