Colouring At Home Or At The Salon? Here Are Some Important Considerations

Jul 14, 2017Colouring

If you’re looking to revamp your hair colour, you’ve undoubtedly thought about box colouring or going to a salon. While there are some benefits to box colouring – mainly price – you might end up paying in more ways than one. Here are a couple of differences when it comes to box versus salon colouring, to help you decide which choice is the best one for you.

There’s more to consider than just colour

Simply put, your hair is unique, and there is a myriad of considerations that have to be taken into account when you choose a colour. Everything from your natural hair colour to your skin tone will play a role in how the colour comes out, which, in the case of box colour, might not look exactly like what was shown on the front of the box.

Moving from one colour to the next is not that easy

Not everyone understands that going from one colour to the next is as easy as one session of colouring, especially if you want to go from a darker shade to a lighter one. Normally, box colour only provides you with the one shade, which means that the results won’t be what you expect.

You don’t benefit from professional help at home

Being in a salon means that you benefit from the expertise and experience of professionally-trained hair stylists who know exactly how to approach your styling needs. They also know what extra methods, if necessary, they have to incorporate to help you get the colour you want. A stylist also eliminates the challenge of trying to colour the back of your head, which can be a difficult task

You might end up paying more

If you end up choosing the incorrect box colour, or have to deal with results that leave you looking much different than you originally thought, you’ll most likely end up at a salon eventually anyway. In this situation, you’ve already spent unnecessary money on box colouring, only to have to spend more on a stylist correcting the problem to get your desired result.
