Default not waiting 24 hours to dye hair...

i have 4b/4c hair...and i bought a dark & lovely coloring kit today...i'm still debating on if i'm going to actually go through with it or not because i've NEVER dyed my hair before.

Anyways, I really want to do it tonight, but I need to wash my hair as well..

Have any of you went against what the box says and washed your hair prior to coloring it - without waiting 24 hours? If so, how did it turn out? Thanks

here's my hair color NOW...

They just say that so your hair will be in the best condition before dying. I never adhere to that rule, and I wouldn't worry about it unless you're going a couple of shades lighter or your hair is in bad condition to start with.

girl , i washed my 4b hair and colored it in the same day , at home . as long as you follow the directions and your hair is already in good shape then theres no problem .

Maybe it's so that when the dye starts stripping stuff off your hair, it may strip the dirt instead of nourishment your hair needs. Like a preventative measure? Just a guess. When I was younger our family would do any process to dirty hair and it would come out less damaged and stripped.
Just a guess, but the ladies have had no side effects, so it might not matter.
