Please HELP! Does hair dye wash out or grow out first? 10 points best answer!?

I'm dyeing my hair for the first time and i'm kinda nervous... it's not a big change, just making it a little lighter. but if its horrible...does it wash out eventually? I'm just using the normal L'Oreal Luminesence box dye. Will it wash out before it grows out?
