  • 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!

    I’ve never died my hair or done anything to it. I’ve only ever cut it. I have naturally light brown hair with blonde highlights. I really want to dye my hair dark brown. I’m probably going to do box dye (if my parents even agree). I just want to know which one would be best for my hair.

    Is it just me or did they get mixed up? The professional one had a hair dye mark on her forehead, after they were blow-dried and he brought them back the box dye girl had that same mark on her forehead?

    I don't know but my cousin used a box dye in my hair and it turns out not to bad, my hair is still shiny (maybe because my hair got dyed for first time that time), but when I go to hair salon after 3months to make my hair dyed normal black hair color, it became dull and not shiny..
    edit: my cousin used L'Oreal Box Dye too..

    I use dye from Olia. Best box dye I have ever used. I like to go red on occasion and they have the best red dye to achieve a deep red on non-bleached dark brown hair. I would love to see you test that :)

    Love him to the moon and back but he is SO SELLING how hard/awkward it is to use box dye. He reminds me of the infomercial fails (RUclip it, it’s hysterical) where actors are being over the top dumb about the easiest shit. So bias. But I don’t care. He’s my boo.

    I have been dropping serious cash on top NYC and Boston salons for over 15 years. I always do single process to just make my medium brown hair a bit darker and rich. So not a huge leap. I just started using Garnier Olia in dark brown for 7.99 per box and holy crap....I’m sold. I took a chance because Dita von Teese swears by Bic dye and her single color is always on point.
    I can’t hate on box dye with my experience

  • SomeRandom Chick

    Before I made the switch to henna to dye my hair, I only ever used boxed dye. In fact, it was the cheapest dye Walmart had to offer, might've been Revlon? It was maybe $3 per box lol. I got 2 boxes, a dark red mixed with dark brown (i had long hair). It looked beautiful and really didn't fry my hair any more than the massive amount of heat I was also using. Now a days I use dark red henna and I can't recommend it enough! The color holds so well, it does wash out a bit, but it's still really red and it grows out before it really washes out. It's a huge commitment though, it is a PAIN in the ass to use, and you can't strip it out. I love it though, and it is healthy for your hair.

    I don’t think he switched them. Permanent dye lifts you at least one level. Plus he added volume which will lift it a little more. If we are talking about staining on the dolls..he could’ve just rinsed it and it stained the head lol. Idk.

    Since I had kids I can't get any dye to stay in my hair. I have had it professionally done and tried at home dyes. I've bleached it so I could put bright colors in it. It barely lighten and then the colors ran out within a week. I've used many shades and brands over the years and none of them stay. The only thing that ever stuck around for more than 2 weeks was cheap black dye and even that eventually ran out and I was back to my medium brown tone. I've pretty much given up at this point. Before kids I dyed my hair frequently with shades of reds, purples, and black and they stuck around. Anyone else have this issue?

    The cheapest box dye in Germany is 1.95€. That’s about $2.20. It is soo much cheaper to dye at home 😅

      fr. I'm from Czech Republic and if I wanted to bleach my hair only I would pay around 60-70$, meanwhile I bleached my head AND dyed it pink and I used 2 boxes of bleach (7 dollars) and 2 boxes of dye (5 dollars). do i wanna pay 24 dollars or 70 dollars? yeah, I'm not going to a salon when I can do it with my friend at home and cheaper lol

  • Heather Bligh

    I'm sorry and not trying to be mean but I have been using box dye on my hair for like that past 5 years and I have never had a problem with it and it has never damaged my hair. I have never had it don't professionally because it is just a easy to do it yourself and if you use it the correct way and get a good one witch in the uk you are looking at £5.00 for one than there are not any problems. I have even gone white blond with at home bleach as well but I knew what I was doing because I did my research and brought the right shampoo and conditioner to lighten it and it is always affordable. It isn't always gonna come out the same as on the box but it is normally quite close and I and re-dying every 6 weeks or so with black for my roots and I don't see any deafferents with my hair being dry or dead ends and it s fine. tbh when I got a perm professionally that ruined my hair terribly and this was a 5 star rating place.

    Honestly, I don’t think he switched the heads. Even if he did, I don’t see why it’s that big of a deal. He was obviously biased, but can you blame him? I will say, I have African hair and I tried to dye my hair the same color in a salon and it ended up dry and damaged, while when I used that same L’Oreal brand (this is about a year before the salon) in a blue color it literally made my hair even more dark but it didn’t damage my hair.
    Edit: a saw a comment saying that you can’t blame the color for the mess. Well, you can’t blame the actual color, but you can blame the formula. The box dye’s formula was obviously more watery causing it to drip more.

    • Lauryn Jessi
      Lauryn Jessi 3 days ago

      If you look in the top right corner of the Box dye BEFORE he washes it off, you can see a line across the forehead with a white space before the hairline (12:22) then the stain after it's washed off has moved onto the professional colour which you can see while he dries the hair (at 13:07).

    but its only $19 for the dye and developer but not everyone has the brush to apply it or the bowl to mix it so that should be included in the price

    I never spill a drop of box dye LoL 😂 I don’t get overwhelmed with odor cause it take me less than 5 min.... (L’Oréal Excellence or Shwarzkopf) I leave in 45 min even though it may say 25-30 min.... OH and yes I do professional dye on my hair too from Sally’s and depending on the color it may be a little shinier.... NOW that said.... drug store box dye always bleeds in between dyes nonstop and from Sally’s it will only bleed a few washings! I admit I only use drugstore box in a pinch. My go to is Sally’s And I get L’Oréal Grey busters so I don’t see a great deal of shine difference.... 1-1 that is 2 oz - 2 oz and I don’t weigh, I use a marked bottle doing the color first to see how accurate my bottle is and then that is what I do in developer. Success either way but less annoying bleeding that ruins pillow cases, towels and even a shirt or 2 (if you get dressed with wet hair) from professional!
    PS Brad you did get the heads switched LoL 9:42 professional dye spots viewers left on Miss Head box dye did the red scalp too!...... during review this same spots on the one you think is box dye! Lmao ooops Brad!
