Box Hair Dye? Or Salon Professional Hair Dye?

By Kennedi Rose / December 28, 2012

I have long mousy brown hair. Since age 22 I’ve dyed it deep brown and blonde.

I used box hair dyes in high school. But then things my tastes grew pricier. Salon quality hair doesn’t compare to box dyes. I love my professional-caliber highlights and I’ve been getting professional salon highlights for almost 4 years.

Unfortunately, salon highlights cost $100 – $125. I have to go back to the salon every 6-8 weeks to redo my roots. My hair grows fast and roots show quickly.

Now that I want to save more money, I must cut back on was my salon trips. I went back to a box hair dye and morphed it into a deep espresso. And … well, it’s not so bad. It’s not salon quality, but its much cheaper.

Have you ever reverted from a salon back to a box?
