Would it be okay to put dye in my oily hair?

I haven't washed my hair in a couple days, and it's getting oily. I want to dye it it, but I've always been told never to wash your hair before you put dye on it unless it's heavily soiled.
Would the oils in my hair affect the dying process?

NOOOOOOOO Never wash hair directly before you dye it. The dye won't take as well. And the more you dye your hair the less oily it gets.

though for hygiene's sake, do remember that you can't wash your hair for a short time afterwards either.

The oil protects your hair, too. Stops it drying out and becoming all frazzled.

I always wash mine when rinsing the dye out.

Yea, it's better to dye your hair when it's dirty, but there is no reason to go a couple days without washing your hair. I dye my hair every two or three months and I never go more than a day without washing it. Just like take a shower in the morning, go through the day like normal, then dye your hair at night or whatever...

And it's best just to RINSE the dye out of your hair with water only then put the conditioner in your hair that came in the dye box. You should wait atleast one full day before putting any shampoo in....then only use shampoo for color treated hair!

na. whenever i get my hair bleached out i don't wash my hair for a solid week, lol. dye is sooo harsh the oils will protect it.

if it's really oily you could wash it now and wait ONE day to dye it.

It's just as bad to over-wash your hair than it is to under-wash it.
I wash it every other day usually, some people can go up to a week without washing their hair.

I only wash my hair once a week, otherwise its gets all dry and lifeless and static.
