  • 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!

    My mother who is also a hair stylist, told me when it comes to professional hair color the only one guaranteed to work properly is REDKEN.
    If you can’t get Redken, buy L’Oréal professional and developer from Sally’s or buy L’Oréal box dye.
    Basically go Redken or go home because most hair color companies are no better than L’Oréal professional and are in fact made in sister factories.
    L’Oréal is the queen of box dye, and you can’t convince me (cosmetology student) or my mother (professional hair stylist since 1983) any different.
    My mother is a hair stylist can buy whatever she wants at cost price and choices to buy L’Oréal box dye.

    He really didn't like or want the box dye to win. If you all know Feria is a higher end box dye and I like the feria brand when i used to dye my hair

    For everyone saying he switched the heads, is that a possibility ? Yes of course. But if you pause at 19:36 in the side-by-side you can clearly see the stain on the box-dyed mannequin’s forehead.

    I go to cosmetology school and our instructors only think box dye is bad because it leaves metallic salts in your hair where as professional dye doesn't. That's why when you dye box dyed hair with professional dye, it is patchy.

    My mom dyes her hair with ammonia free box dye, and it seems to work well.

    I think it also depends what you use. I use splat box dye and would say it’s pretty good. But ya totally switched them. There are stains at the very top in the part and that’s definitely from box dye you can see him get the scalp all red when he uses the bottle. There are also marks near the chin and right eye at 8:44 that were then on the “box doll” later. The chin and eye one I found from another comment and their is a lot more in the other comments too. But ya he definitely switched.

    Some can't afford that extra $5. I like the color from the boxed dye better tbh.

      If I was to get my hair professionally done... it'd cost over $180. It's long and so thick it's ridiculous.

    This shit does not cost 19 bucks because the developer cost extra while the box dye is developed included.

    Not being rude but was it that hard to admit that the box dye was better and that is why you switched heads

  • becca moses
    becca moses 10 days ago

    i think box dye is probably harder to fuck up if you're untrained at home than professional dye just bc it comes with the right amount of developer and the volume that they see as most appropriate for most people already there n included and everything? like obviously it's not the same as going to a professional who understands how and why the dye works and can make adjustments and decisions for the individual, but people who might think they know what they're doing well enough to make those adjustments on their own and who aren't hairdressers are way more likely to use, like, 40 volume developer on their already damaged hair or whatever if they're using non-kit hair dye u feel me

    wait... the box dye looked more red at the beginning and the professional looked more purple. but at the end... it’s the reverse

    Am I the only person who doesn’t gather from this the heads were switched? I’m confused how everyone is coming to that conclusion? Box dye will always come up worse

    First of all there is not even ammonia in the box dye so it can't smell that toxic. It smells kinda like a stronger conditioner. And most important, he switched the dolls.

  • Cerys Woolley
    Cerys Woolley 15 days ago

    At about 12 minutes I'm pretty sure he swapped them! Plus there is massive price difference because hair dressers don't just charge is cost. It normally costs way more for it to be done professionally.

  • Savv Hornsby
    Savv Hornsby 16 days ago

    Uhm... unpopular opinion: the box dye actually looked way more purple than the professional dye? Sorry, I think you were biased :/ fun idea though might be to have someone else dye the hair and you have to guess which was which.

  • Lis

  • Brittany Smith
    Brittany Smith 16 days ago

    You should also take into consideration price wise with the pro color that someone who doesn’t have a bowl and brush and gloves and things to apply it would have to get all of those things too verses the cos die which comes with all of your supplies

  • circusmice

    Thought everyone was just a little stupid thinking you had switched heads. Now that I rewatch parts of the video... the roots kinda gave it away. Unless of course, you switched by accident? Quite easy to mix Tammy and Rebecca up seen as they are pretty much identical. I'm not 100% sure if you actually did switch heads because box dye can be crappy and not come out as 'bright' (when you look at the roots, one of the mannequin's roots are clearly brighter than the others'), although, you seemed to not make a mess of the roots when you were doing the professional dye which makes me revert back to thinking you did switch heads.

    Oh and I think that test wasn't quite fair, I'm not sure about the 'professional' hair dye but i know for a fact that the box dye colour is not meant to be put on dark hair because the colour would obviously come out different to what people would expect (you can see 3 different shades on the side of the box showing what it'd come out like on 3 different shades of hair ranging from blonde - brown). People would be expecting it to magically come out nice and bright like shown on the box but the truth is, you would need blonde hair (possibly light brown hair) to have it come out nice and bright... so you would probably need to bleach your hair if your natural colour is dark.

    My gf ended up with a 2nd degree chemical burn from this crap and ended up in hospital. Was only a small area but just shouldnt happen. And it definately wasnt an allergic reaction

  • Vicki Gotschall
    Vicki Gotschall 17 days ago

    I’ve used L’Oréal Paris colo rista teal and maroon
    And Splat midnight indigo
    And they work really well
    And smell good and that’s coming from someone who is sensitive to chemical smells

    I don’t remember what bleach I used but was a natural brand
    That turned my chocolate brown hair to a yellow dirty blonde
