How-to Guide: Getting Salon Color at Home
Has the coronavirus changed your hair routine? Has your hair color grown out or are your roots showing but you are not quite ready yet to go into a hair salon?
If so, know you are not alone. Visiting a hair salon, while not exactly essential, is still a comforting source of self-care that many of us can use right now. Even with all the proper and mandated health and safety procedures now in place at Tribeca Salons, we understand your health comes first.
Whether you are not quite willing to mask up and hit the salons or you are not close enough to a Tribeca Salon but want advice from our color experts – don’t worry – we have a great alternative option for at-home hair color. Perfect to keep your hair looking salon fresh!
Why Skip the Box Kit
Seriously, skip it. Look, we’ve all been there and may have at least considered —or attempted —a box dye. But even right now, when going to a hair salon is a completely different experience than at any other time in our lives, just don’t do it!
Let’s take a moment to chat why you should not waste your time or money:
Hair Color Does Not Fit All
There are many things to consider when choosing a color, such as hair type, condition, color, previously dyed, etc. Buying a box that says platinum blonde will not make your hair look like the beautiful model on the front.
Bad For Your Hair
Box dye is cheap and there’s a reason for that. Manufacturers use low-quality dyes, chemicals, and additives to save money and lower the cost.
They can contain harsh chemicals such as high amounts of ammonia, PPDs, metallic salts, henna, and nitro dyes. These chemicals are not only damaging to the hair but can cause allergic reactions and be problematic for sensitive skin.
Box Dyes Cause Progressive Hair Color
Let’s talk a sec about progressive hair color. This means that each time you use a box dye the pigment will build onto itself and get darker each time more color is applied.
This does not happen with salon hair color because it does not contain the metallic salt and henna additives that are known to pick up more and more of the box dye color while newer growth hair only has one layer.
