It is okay to have styling products already in your hair because the color will process anyway. In fact, I use hair spray to help control it when I'm highlighting with foils. It is okay to get the tangles out of your hair with a comb beforehand; but don't stimulate your scalp too much. Never use a brush. Mix a tiny amount of color and developer together and follow the manufacturers instructions on allergy testing.
It's always wise to follow the manufacturers directions, but don't always assume that your hair needs to process for the full amount of time written on the box. People with gray or resistant hair need the full amount of time to process. If you have fine hair with very little gray, the general rule is 30-35 minutes. Fine hair is like a sponge and the ends might turn out darker then the rest. When the color is left on your hair too long, it can process darker!
The time to open the lines of communication with your child is when they are young. A two or three year old may not be able to have an hour long conversation and tell you everything that is running through their mind or that may be bothering them, but if you take the time to pull out some coloring pages and sit with them for some creative play you will find that they do have their own ways of communicating with you.
