Prep hair for color / bleaching

I wanted to make a full post about preparing  your hair before coloring it ever since I made the tutorial on
How to Bleach Your Hair at Home and Hydrogen Peroxide Hair Bleach . When choosing a desire color we might have to make some preparation before hand . I am not a stylist just sharing my knowledge :D . 

1#. Do the strand and allergy test

2#. Make sure your hair is in good condition . If your hair is thinning and damage be sure to take care of it   before thinking about putting such harsh chemical on it .

3# .  Give your hair some tlc before coloring such as , deep condition for couple day and hot oil treatment 3 days before dying your hair .

4#. Do not wash your hair on the day you plan to dye your hair or even the day before . The natural oil your hair produce is important to your scalp and hair health .

5# . Do you have any split ends , clip them off . If not they will look lighter than the erst of the hair and even more damage .

6#. You may need to strip your hair if you have dark hair dye ,you should buy a color remover .

7#. Last but not least choosing the right color that matches your  skin tone is important so get some sample hair color .
