We are all born with a natural head of hair, but when you grow up and start developing your own style you might want to change your hair color to fit your look. For blondes, it’s easy to dye hair since the hair is already a light color. But for people with dark colored hair, the process is a little more difficult.
Professionals may bleach your hair a few times in order to lift the color before dying it the perfect shade of lilac (or whatever color you desire). However, their prices often run steep. Not everyone is comfortable dropping hundreds of dollars for new hair.
Although dying your hair at home can save you hundreds of dollars, stylists are begging people to leave it to the professionals – especially when it comes to bleaching.
‘Box dyes contain chemicals that don’t mix well with other salon chemicals… Whatever you try to do to FIX what this does after you use it, will melt your hair off. I have seen it with my own eyes many times before,’ says hairstylist Sydniiee Oliveira.
‘Literal heating, smoking, and melting of the hair because [boxed dye] was on it before a color correction had to be done… So use at your own risk and don’t be mad when we say ‘I told you so.’
