Here are questions related to How Long Should You Wait Before Re-dyeing Hair?.
Recently I dyed my hair to red, but I don't seem to like it very much. How long do I have to wait to re-dye my hair? Will the result be good?

First a lot depends on the type of hair color you used , permanent or semi-permanent? also did you just go too bright? dark? or it's just not your color? If it's too dark, mix a little peroxide (20 volume) with your shampoo and that will take some of the color out. Afterwards use a good conditioner.
If the color is wrong and you want to go lighter your going to have to do the above but let it sit on your hair for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse, dry, and you can re-dye the same day if necessary:) Always use a heavy conditioner and do the final rinse (after the creme rinse is rinsed out) in cool water.
I just recently went to the salon and got black stripped out of my hair and had them dye it back to a light brown. How long should I wait to dye my hair again? I was wanting to dye it Burgundy with blonde underneath.

Call the salon and ask.
I colored my hair and thought it would come out dark auburn, but it just looks dark brown. Can I color it again with a red to make it more auburn? Can I do it right away or do I have to wait?
My sister kept coloring her hair different color browns every few days because she didn't like the shade and it turned green! I definitely don't want green! Thanks to anyone who can help me!

Wait! Too much dye can make your hair brittle and fragile. Just wear it up for two weeks. You'll be fine- I've had worse :/
It has been about 3 months since I dyed my hair dark brown. Now I really want to get highlights or go blonde. The dark brown color has faded to a bit lighter shade over time. I want to know if this is enough time to wait to re-dye it. Will it be safe if I do it now or should I wait longer?

If it was my hair, I would say yes. However, everyone's is different. By three months, I would have roots showing that were at least 1 1/2 inches and then I have no qualms about re-dying. If in doubt, go to a good salon. Or wait another month.
I just dyed my hair, and the box shows a very light (almost platinum blonde) which is the color I want, but it turned out more strawberry blonde, a color I do not want. Would it be safe to dye again with a non- bleach lightener, a product called Super Blonde in 24-36 hours?

First of all if you were wanting to make your hair "platinum" blonde
I would think your hair was darker to begin with, thus you were not dying your hair, you were bleaching your hair. The product you spoke of in your question is also a hair lightener, (bleach). I would think twice about re-bleaching so soon unless you want to damage your hair. Call a salon and ask for advice.

I want to dye my hair a red and then do my tips black. I had a salon just do my tips bleached then red last year and I have a friend that is willing to do both if I just buy the product. I want it permanent. So after I dye my entire head red, how long before I can do my tips?

I dyed my hair a dark auburn color, but I only got tints of it here and there and I hate it. I'd like to try going a dark blonde, but I'm not sure whether I need to strip the other color out or if I can just dye the blonde over it.
I dyed my hair from medium/light brown to honey butter blonde. The top and bangs look great, but some of the sides still look the same and it's a little patchy. I have very long hair.
I used Garnier Nutrisse permanent dye. How long do I have to wait to and make the ends match the top?

I recently colored my hair at home and it's not the color I wanted. I'm very anxious to get it to the color I want so I'm wondering how long I should wait to re-color it.
