Box Color Ads:
We know that the celebrity color does not do
their color for the shoot. There is a professional hairdresser taking care of
In the salon, it may take 2 or 3 different
colors mixed together to make the perfect shade of haircolor. Techniques are
what a “box” at home haircolor cannot provide.
Do you think that the celebrities used in the
ads color their hair at home using boxed hair color?
The box color brands do offer different gadgets
for highlights and lowlights, however it is when it is time to repeat the
process that it is a lot harder then it appears.
Not all stylists are “haircolorists”.Working with a color and understanding
the “laws of color” are what make working with a color specialist worth it.The color spectrum is much like the
There are so many factors to take into account
when coloring your hair. What is the percentage of grey hair do you have? Does
your hair have an extreme amount of warm (brassy) undertones?
The foremost reason we never recommend buying
box color is that there is no customized care hidden inside its cardboard
shape. Professional personal stylists use their considerable education and
experience to determine, among other things, what would be best for the overall
condition and health of your hair. Choosing the perfect hue to accentuate your
cut is essential, as hair color will always be the best accessory to complete a
fantastic cut. This kind of personal care cannot be purchased in a box.

is really hard to apply evenly, select the right corrective shades and repeat
the process the second time.
It can be easy to run to the grocery store and buy one of the many "soft
brunette" or "ash blonde" box colors with a happy and
satisfied-looking model on the front. Unfortunately, easy does not equate with
safe or effective.
Clients who have been coloring their
hair themselves for even a short time will find that their hair has become
brittle, flat, sometimes metallic-looking, and often broken. Metallic dye is the key ingredient inside these
box colors, and is harmful with repeated or excessive use and very difficult to
remove. The price of box color usually indicates the amount of cheap chemicals
and detergents used.
Keeping the integrity, health and beauty of the
hair in mind is our main goal in correcting any difficult color situation.
Saving money by purchasing box color will only
create more expensive problems in the future.
