PSA . Recently we have had a few incidents with our guests not being fully open with us in regards to Home hair colour we don’t judge as we know lockdowns provided us with many challenges. However none of us like surprises
Box color and permanent color NEVER disappear from
I know you have heard the words “Do not box color your hair.”
But why do we say this?
Here is a perfect example!
This client used box color 2 YEARS ago.
When it comes to lightening the hair again, after box color or permanent, it poses a BUNCH of issues!
It doesn’t matter if you used box dye, 1,2,3 years ago or if the box says it washes out🙄. Unless your hair is chin length, and you’ve cut it all off in that time, it is STILL in your hair. As you see here, her growth after two years is only half way down. Unless she was willing to cut HALF her hair off, there is no way she could be light.
It also doesn’t matter if it was done professionally! Yes professional color can be (a tiny bit) easier to break through than box. However, at a dark level, no color is easy to lift without creating a lot of warmth and possible damage and still requires sessions.
“But I box dyed with a blonde color”
This still is not an easy thing to “fix” or make lighter. Coloring hair blonde with COLOR, will always create warmth. Blonde colors also are not meant to make your dark brown hair, blonde.
There are so many reasons why stylists now call lightening after a dark color or box color, a “color correction”. It is not because we aren’t skilled enough. It is because of the laws of color and science. 🎨🧪
Sometimes the clients hair, the color, budget, our timing, clients goals, etc. will prevent getting your dream hair in one session, or even 5.
Sessions are super important when going from dark color to lighter.
This is why educating clients is also very important! In these instances, We make sure to explain to clients the whys, how’s, and if’s! That way they are well aware of what a journey it could be, how the color might look each session, how warmth is expected, and that the health of their hair is most important!
So please, save this for future reference and be honest with your stylist🙏 ...
