Can I Use Box Color

This is a very common question & for good reason! Box color is cheaper than coming into the salon to have your hair professional colored, and when you’re short on cash, you might be considering this. Also, the box color can be applied in the comfort of your own home with you watch Netflix, but is it actually cheaper? Is it really a better option or are you taking some huge risks with your locks and your money? 

We all know that one person who swears by their box color and just can’t see why anyone would head to a salon for professional hair care. Just because it works for one person, does not mean you will come out with the desired results you want. Box colors are meant to provide an all-over shade and you can choose between permanent or semi-permanent. You will find many colors provided to you by reputable brands but can you really trust them. Here are a few things to keep in mind before you reach for that box color!

  1. How can every hair color and texture achieve the color portrayed on the box? The answer is: There is NO WAY! The result will widely vary and there is no way to know what actual color your hair will turn. Different textures and other factors will weigh heavily on the results. 
  2. Un-necessary damage. The developer in the box color is a one sizes fits all but your professional hair stylist will choose a developer strength that will get the job done with the least damage down to your hair. 
  3. You may end up out of pocket more. If you have a hair color snafu with your box color and need correction at a salon, it will end up with you paying more than you would have in the first place. When you choose a professional salon, you won’t be disappointed.
  4. You could end up with a new hairstyle. Box color is harder on hair due to the chemicals used and sometimes causes so much damage and breakage that a haircut is required. 

There is a reason that hair stylist attend college and have to log some many hours of time to achieve their license. Hair Color is much more than applying a “one sizes fit all” color to your hair; it’s a science.
