    I'd say three days. I think that's what it says on Ouidad's site.

    I wonder why she says 3 days. Every hair color I've ever used only says to wait 24 hours after a shampoo and in school they taught us the same (ideally) after "reconditioning", when the hair is not in good shape to color right away. It is good to have some natural oil in the scalp and roots so the color will last longer so maybe that's what she has in mind but for most people 2 days would be enough, and considering that most of us have roots to retouch, 3 days seems a bit much to me.
