If you bleach your hair prior to use your color will come out super bright and vibrant. If you have a previous hair dye in a lighter tone this will go over those lighter areas and tint them fuschia but you will not see it as much in darker areas. I actually think that makes the effect look pretty nice. I dyed my hair and my roots grew out a bit and I put this over it without dying so I kind of have an ombre effect. The ends are lighter and the upper area is darker but the color is still visible.
Try not to go too close to the scalp or else your scalp will get stained. It will wash out in a wash or two though. Putting vaseline around your hairline is always a good idea. This formula requires some heat processing so I recommend getting an aluminum shower cap and tucking your hair into it so that it reflects the heat better. Don't wrap your hair when doing the heat portion of the color because your hair will heat unevenly resulting in some areas holding the color better than others.
Using a keratin based conditioner or mask prior to but not immediately before will help your hair color hold and absorb better. Using a color sealing conditioner and rinsing with color water is best for immediately after coloring.
If you do get some stains anywhere in your bathroom wipe them immediately. If you let them sit a while you can try acetone but not on wood or other porous surfaces. The acetone (nail polish remover) helped take the stains off of my marble sink. If it doesn't come off right away just give it time. After all this is only a semi-permanent color.
