Is it better to dye your hair first then cut it?

Asked by remambermee (442points) December 26th, 2011

It makes sense to dye it first right? Because the dye can damage your ends, but I feel like it wouldn’t make that much of a difference. It would be at home hair dye, not professionally done.
I just want to know your opinions

I’ve always seen the dye first/cut last in the beauty shops.

Your reasoning not withstanding, Seems like a waste of time and dye to dye the part you are going to cut off.

^ I was just thinking that. I wonder if they can charge more if they do it before the hair is cut.

I always color first, then cut. My own hair, or if I’m doing someone else’s hair. My best friend is a hairdresser (and does my hair), and she always colors/foils first, then cuts.

Colour first, dye later.

I am curious if all of your reasons are the same as the OP’s if you said dye first, cut later. Are they?

Dye then cut.

Usually the color is applied to dry hair, and then shampooed out after processing time. Then, your freshly-washed hair is ready to be trimmed and styled. Kind of a logical flow.

Unless you’re cutting off, like, a foot of hair, the waste should not be significant.

Color first, unless you are cutting off a significant amount. If you are chopping of 6+ inches no need to waste the dye, and take the time to cover all that hair. Cut bluntly to shorten the length, but leaving an extra inch, dye, and then trim to the shape ultimately desired.
