When to glaze after dyeing?

Hi girlies!

quick question.
I'm planning to dye my hair black soon, and so I've been reading through these threads and I've seen that a lot of you do a deep moisture treatment right after you dye your hair. However, since a glaze is supposed to help keep the color vibrant, when is a good time to do that?
I read somewhere that you should glaze right after you dye, but wouldn't DT and glaze AND dye in one day be a bit much???

    I actually don't do a deep conditioning treatment right after I dye -- I thought that would pull the color out much faster. I usually wait 7-10 days after I dye before I do a deep condition.

    However, I do usually deep condition a couple of days before I dye my hair, to get it in good moisturized shape before the dye.

    When I do a glaze after dying my hair, I usually do it 2 or 3 days later and that works out well.

    Have fun!! :)
