Can you use leftover hair dye the next day? If it’s a minor root touch-up, you can use half the dye tube and half the peroxide jar. You should throw out any leftovers. It will be useless and no longer has any chemical effect on your hair after half an hour. Peroxide is usually packaged in sealed jars that can be kept for as long as you need them.
Can you save hair dye after its mixed? Just put it into an air-tight container and store it in the fridge or at room temperature, and it’ll last for about six weeks. While your color might not come out as saturated as it would have with fresh dye, it will still be safe to use.
What happens if I use mixed hair dye the next day? Even if you usually don’t react badly to hair dyes, when reusing mixed hair dye, you run the risk of developing a chemical burn or allergic reaction. Though the symptoms from a chemical burn would almost always be instantaneous, an allergic reaction could happen up to three days after applying the mixture.
