  • 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 always watch the whole video before reading comments to not be biased but I already knew you switched the heads. The sudden colour change of the heads is more than enough to be able to tell... 🤔🤔

    i havent watched the video yet but i always have used box dye and ive only dyed the ends of my hair. i'd reccomend splat because although its messy (isnt all hair dye?) it smells amazing (kinda like cherries) . Also, it has an amazing color (i used ruby red) imma watch the video now ^^.

    OMG I just realized what everybody was talking about I keep scrolling down in the comments and I see everyone saying that you switch the heads I didn't believe it at first and then I looked at the mannequin and the box I had some red dye on the forehead it was like a line on the forehead like next to the scalp and the professional. I had like dots in the forehead and was a little bit messy on the neck like when the dye got on top of the mannequins so the box that was better then!? I'm not going to throw shade because you changed the mannequins but there's absolutely no way you could have mixed them up when you were blow-drying their hair you obviously cut the video and switch them around because the box. I looked better than the professional hair color we love you no matter what whether you're wrong or not so it's kind of not right to lie to the people who look up to you and watch your videos I'm not saying that you did anything wrong but lying to the people who depend on you and we're actually trying to follow this videos pretty mean some people were actually going to follow this video so they could dye their own hair and buy the products you were talking about but the fact that you switched it up could have basically just messed up their hair sorry for writing a whole paragraph but I have a phone that If I talk it will automatically write it down for me so I really don't know how but I have a phone that if I talk it will automatically write it down for me so I really don't know how much I'm talking until I look at the paragraph but anyway just be true to your subscribers cuz we look up to you and we follow your videos and what you did just really wasn't cool

    Personally I think you defiantly need to go to a professional if you’re bleaching your hair or having anything to do with bleach. Or at least use professional bleaching products and DO YOUR RESEARCH before just slapping that shit on your head without knowing how bleaching works like a lot of people do. And that’s where hair fails come in BUT as far as colored dye I really don’t think it matters what brand or type you use it all kinda does the same thing. And I’ve done my friends hair and moms hair for years with box dyes and it’s always left their hair feeling and looking really good so 🤷🏼‍♀️

    WOW, yeah.. The switch is super obvious. Both the stain near the forehead and back of the neck give it away. This video is shady as hell.. He should've just admitted that it turned out surprisingly well, or just not post the video at all cuz he's losing credibility over this :/ also, him over exaggerating his box dye struggles just make him look like those dummies on the infomercials..

    I would like to say something! I use box dye and it works very well on my hair and the same color as the box. I dont get any on my floor and for me the price for the professional hair dye its self is $30 the professional hair dresser is $40-50 and box dye is $10 and for me the box dye is shiny but it also depends on the color of your hair mine is blond so I just wa noted to say that no hate to anything though.

  • Druid Riley
    Druid Riley 16 hours ago

    If you have to MEASURE your hair color before you mix it, that's a FAIL on usability, not a 4!!! And it's a $6 price difference not a $5 difference. The professional hair color looks maroon, not purple and it's not shinier, the color is lighter.

    13:11 professional scar is thin
    13:46 box dye scar is thick
    14:04 the scar is still thick
    19:36 the box dye still has a thicker scar
    Its clearly the same fucking head as he says it is I dont fucking know what everyone is talking about. There is no way he switched heads the professional's head scar is way too thin to look like that. Damm I cant believe you people are so fucking quick to turn against him. I've barely been on this channel yet im more loyal.

    putting aside the whole “switch heads” debacle, the “predictability” factor was screwed from the beginning, the “swatch” is always used on lighter base colour for vibrancy. Starting on dark hair messed with the results and hides what colour he was applying anyway :/

    Dead ass why would you switch the heads? Just admit that the box dye had a stronger color, but probably is more damaging to hair with worse chemicals and stuff and may not last as long. Not that deep haha. Also it looks like the colors he chose were different anyway so.

    When you do box dye you have to check the shade of the hair your putting the dye on, If its a dark shade to begin with obviously its gonna come out darker? i think you failed to check out that aspect when providing your scores

    Mara Gragert 3 days ago

    You should have used Garneir, it's a much better brand in my opinion. As for predicting the color on the side are three shades to expect after coloring. I'm more comfortable using box dye vs getting it colored just based on control. I trust myself vs someone else because just like every other job, just because you're a great hair stylist, doesnt mean that every hair stylist is great.

  • Taylor Bandicoot
    Taylor Bandicoot 4 days ago

    I don't understand why people are so butthurt trying to say box dye is better 😂😂 First of all if you know Brad at all you know that he's very opinionated on box dye WITH GOOD REASON. Second of all it doesn't take a genius to figure out why box dye is sold at Walmart and is low as $2 and professional hair color is more expensive and requires more care and has to be purchased from a beauty supply store or even in some cases with a license.. because regardless of all of your stories, yes box dye does suck, its more uneven, damaging, unpredictable etc & it is horrible for your hair. So keep using it if you want to I'm not judging anybody if it works for you that's great but stop trying to act like hair stylists have some secret motive 😂😂 Brad could literally not talk about box dye at all and he still going to be making that money and getting those clients

    You can’t compare only the price of the professional colour since *most* people can’t buy the professional and do it themselves. Also I’d like to see a non professional rate use ability. Try doing a professional dye on yourself.. I doubt it would be as easy as a box dye for the average person. (Which I’m presuming your video is targeted to)

    Love those people here be like "I always used box dye and when I had it bleached at the salon it became orange"... Yeah, that's what happens to pre dyed hair, genius. You can't expect it to go white when you dyed it at home for years, probably with darker colors. That is not how it works. Try bleaching your natural hair and it will turn out just fine.

  • Maddysmac
    Maddysmac 4 days ago

    Wow... the people in these comments are being so... toxic. If he lied that's not cool, but jeez... you're this upset over him preferring professional dye? I've had my hair dyed and I've used box. And I can honestly say that it looked better professionally done EVERY TIME. The only time it looked good when I did it myself is when - SURPRISE- I used professional level box dye. And it lasted longer- so a few extra dollars is worth it rather than redying the whole thing sooner. It makes sense for a professional to recommend things that are better quality for your hair. I know this is an extreme, but would you like your doctor to cut treatments? Or do you want him to make you healthy? I know people in the comments take the whole "box dye is horrible!" Thing as an attack because you use it, but chill. He's not saying your hair is ugly, he's not saying you're doing bad, he's not saying you're wrong. He is saying professional is better. Whether that is a fact or opinion- THAT DOESN'T MATTER. It's his opinion if it is an opinion. Calm down.
    And I know people are mainly upset over him lying, but I honestly don't see what y'all are seeing... I think that people are so quick to jump on this "cancel" trend now that they will try to attack anyone over anything for the drama. He'll probably make a statement explaining what y'all are seeing or if he actually did it. I don't believe he did, but that is my opinion. Use your freedom on the internet for good, people. Don't try to destroy someone's career over a stupid thing like this.

  • Chelsea Shaffer

    I think you mixed up the heads. The box dye head was brighter and had a stain on the neck where you “dripped”. The professional color was darker and didn’t have a stain.
