Professional hair stylists always say that box hair dyes are bad for your hair... but I don't get it. Aren't all hair dyes bad for your hair? Like if you bleach it, no matter if you did it yourself with a store bought dye or at a salon, wouldn't it still be taking color out of your hair and damaging it? I know a lot of people do their own hair with box dyes from the stores and are pretty pro at it. Their hair looks good and they know how to do things correctly without ruining their hair. So I don't know why so many professionals say its not good, and that everyone should go to a professional... ??? hmm...
And what's the difference between box dyes from say walmart and individual dyes from sallys? I dont understand why people say the dyes from sally's are better. Is it the quality? How can you define the quality of a hair dye? By the color it gives you? I mean isn't it still damaging your hair? I dye my hair red and I've found that the ion colors from sallys fade out much faster than say boxed garnier dyes.
Anywhoo, I'm just curious because I've always dyed my hair with box dyes or dyes from sallys and its always been fine and relatively healthy--since i dont really go out of my way to take care of my hair. I went to get my hair colored at the salon and I really didn't notice anything different, i mean, besides the fact that i had to pay like 500% more than i usually do for my hair color. lol.
So what are your thoughts on the topic?
