Quick question about coloring

I am coloring my hair tomorrow, and I have one question. I normally wash my hair once a week with shampoo, on Saturday morning. I don't know why, that's just what I do. So, anyway, my question is, should I shampoo before I color or after?

    You shouldn't shampoo within at least 24 hours of coloring, before or after. Since you're getting it colored tomorrow, I would wait until a couple of days after the color.

    if or when i get a color done ( even highlights ) i always get it done a day after i washed my hair , it seems the dirtier your hair is the better the color grabs , at least thats what i hear ...plus my salon will shampoo a lil bit with a special poo after my color so i dont need to shampoo until the day after if i want .

    Oh well, it's too late to wash it today, I think.
