  • Hi Beautiful! Today I put box dye to the test. I have always been curious if this stuff actually works. Doing a direct comparison to professional color felt like the only way I could really uncover the truth!

      YOU SWITCHED THE HEADS!!! You switched the heads after you washed them because the box dye have darker eye shadow and eye brows and then you wash them and the “professional dye” has dark eye brows and eyes shadow and the box dye have light brows and eye shadow

    I bought all my box dyes for under £6 per box ($7.77 equivalent) and the most expensive I’ve seen hair dyes selling for in shops in England is £10 ($12.96) and honestly, my hair looked fine using box dyes, it’s shiny, healthy and the colour looked like it did on the box

    I’ve had the exact color of box dye and dyed my own hair with it and I can say personally that you switched the heads, the other one is too red that you claim is the box, the name of the box color is “power violet” the second head you showed is that color. 😂 Also it might have looked shinier if you used the shampoo and conditioner that came with the dye because that’s what it’s for.

    I honestly trust doing my own hair with box dye a lot more. It’s really not bad quality and I’ve never had anything bad happen with it. My friend went to a salon and dyed his hair twice and it melted off, I’ve messed with my hair for years and never once had it melt off or turn into ramen noodle texture. I think you were very unfair to the box dye, you didn’t even try to put it on nicely, people don’t just grossly slap it on their heads like you did. That is a good box dye and you were so unfair.

  • Samantha Marlow
    Samantha Marlow Day ago

    I’m gonna ignore everything else I just wanted to say, I’ve always used box dye because ya girl is in med school and BROKE. It’s a lot cheaper and if you know what to pick you get some good quality color for the price in my opinion.
    The reason the box color doesn’t come pre mixed is because the chemicals will build up pressure in the bottle and it will make the bottle... not explode but it will pop and go everywhere. Experienced it myself. Mixed the color, had to take care of my dog who was eating a bunny and 20 minutes later I had colorful artistic bathroom walls. Especially with brands shipping to different altitudes, here in Colorado Springs I see all kinds of products affected by altitude.
    Again, I’m purposely not going to address the head switching thing because many people have said it much better than I could, and why beat a dead horse.

    I would politely disagree with you. Box colours are great if you know what you are doing and don't have ridiculous expectations. It easily lifts 4 levels without any damage (at least on my level 3 roots). For me works much better than many of the high lift colours on the roots (virgin hair). Offers a better blend and no patchiness. I had my hair done by many professionals in the past and I've done it myself even more times and I will say this, if you don't want a drastic change box dye is the answer, if you want a drastic change go to a professional.


    I don’t know how you thought viewers wouldn’t be able to tell that you’d switched the mannequins lmao

    Dude I can clearly see your switched them. And you used two very different colors.
    You can even tell the "professional" came out looking like the box dye and the box dye looks like the professional tester hair piece.

  • chris olandis
    chris olandis 2 days ago +1

    But wella from Sally’s isn’t even a professional hair color. Both dyes contain metallic dyes that coat your hair shaft making it almost impossible for it to come out. Even after years the dye will still be left on the hair strand, which is why if you notice when you use keep using box dye the previous color areas don’t color as good as your virgin hair. Box dyes have maximum pigment and maximum ammonia, which means it’ll work for almost everyone no matter what hair type. Sally’s hair color is just a slight upgrade from box dye but the results will be the same. Please go to a salon and do a lot of research to find a stylist that’ll not only care for the health of your hair but someone that’ll also make you happy and listen to your needs.

    The scalp is dyed on the winning head because you applied the box dye with your hands and rubbed it into the hair/scalp.
    You might have actually got away with the switch if you applied the box dye professionally man 😂

    Brad, honey. People don't like being lied to, and your attempt at "duping" your viewers to not go with a box dye was a fail. You think we're dumb? This proves that you think your audience is stupid. Not a good look, best to address it and move on😘

    Um, you're actually supposed to leave the box dye on for 45 minutes if it's non-colored hair. If you're just touching up, then you leave it on for 25.

    After he’s applied the professional colour at 8:44, you can see a stain of dye that looks like a beauty spot under the lip on the left. At 13:46 you see the same spot but this time Brad’s claiming it’s the box dye head, but it’s not and this specific mark proves it. I’ll give Brad the benefit of the doubt though and say his clumsy ass messed something up at the wash basin and he’s accidentally mixed them up. I find it hard to believe he’d deliberately and quite obviously shit on his own reputation. If anything this vid should be a lesson to Brad about his own incorrect bias. It was just a lousy comparison vid. Anyway, besides all that I don’t think it was deliberate, and I’m still watching and I’m still a fan, but sort your shit of Brad 🤦‍♀️

  • Floof The Bird
    Floof The Bird 5 days ago +1

    The odor criteria shoulda been left out. By the time you were judging the odor and affects of the box dye, you had already been exposed to the fumes of the other dye in an area that isn't well vented. Due to that, you really didn't have fresh senses to judge the box dye like you did with the salon dye. . .plus the salon dye was developing RIGHT NEXT to where you were testing the box dye, so, tainted sample as well.
    Plus you DID switch the heads for the reveal! I am hoping that was an honest mistake though as the two heads did look almost the same save for the eye shadow, and it's easy to miss a few marks, so if you switched them by mistake then, hey, it happens, you're only human.

  • Bella Carlin

    Please give an honest review if you do it again and 19$ and 13$ is not a 5$ difference it’s a 6$ difference because 19$ - 13$ = 6$.

  • Rowa Paragon
    Rowa Paragon 5 days ago

    Just gonna throw this out there. I have been using box dye on my head since I was like 6 at first to deal with lice but then I just kept doing it... I have honestly never had a problem. I'm 18 now and have never gotten my hair dyed professionally. From ages 6 till I was probably 13 I always had my hair dyed blond. And I always got told that my hair was gorgeous and vibrant and healthy. When I was like 16 I died my hair in the morning one day then went to the local salon the next and got it cut and she kept praising how healthy my hair looked... Box dye isn't bad unless you do it wrong. Also, I wanna say that he did a horrible job putting the box dye on the head. He could have applied it the same way he applied the professional dye just with his fingers instead of like... I don't know... What he did... Correct me if I'm wrong but yea...

    I actually used that exact box dye a couple years ago and it looked exactly that color (the nice one bc as everyone pointed out the heads were switched), BUT THEN.... it bleached in the sun after a few days and became this awful burnt red that looked so dry and drained and extra bad with my skin tone and it didn’t go away until my friend (hairdresser in training) redyed it for me 😫

    Not a fan of that one. They do make one meant for dark hair or red hair called "Préférence Infinia" that I love. I use color brown black. I have a lot of grey...well white hair and my natural color is a dark brown. The coverage is amazing, and it lasts better than any. It comes with a tube of refresher which is garbage, but the actual dye is quite nice... That being said, there's nothing better than having a salon do it for you while you sit and read. (I just can't afford it every time)
