This is the thing when you're going for a lighter shade. I know that the box instructions say to start from the roots, but every time I went to the salon to get a lighter shade, the salon would leave an inch of roots and dye the rest of my hair, let it sit for 20 minutes AND THEN add colors to my roots.
Reason being: the roots are the newest and healthiest part of our hair and it's most likely to not have any colorings on it so it absorbs the color faster than the rest of your hair.
So if you want even coloring, it is best to do the roots at the end. - Catalina's word : )
