Why box dyes are the WORST!
This maybe an unpopular opinion 😂 but in my defense I have been a die hard box dye user for 13 years!!!! 😳 ￼￼My hair type is straight and fine, and blonde naturally. Like a medium ash blonde. Anyway, I have been all tones and shades of black, and browns over the year always staying on the dark side..😁 and also have NEVER used bleach on my hair!!! Recently I wanted to do a black to silver ombré and as you can see in previous posts my hair is all shades of Fades reds, purples, and browns... so quite the change! So I went to visit a hair stylist and talk hair health and options. ￼￼The condition of my hair is dry and troubled. Breakage has climbed up my hair. I have 6 inches of damaged ends....between the years of evil 👿 box dyes, hormonal changes, and bad hair products....my dream of black to silver is not gonna happen unless I shave my head and start with fresh new hair! 😩Which I am not gonna do. The stylist did offer to do a test strand but there was definitely concern for frying my hair or it breaking off in the process. Sooo I opted for hair health over color at this time!!!! My New Hair Journey So now I have switched to a vegan clean shampoo and conditioner by r+Co. R+Co - Super Garden CBD shampoo R+Co - Dallas Thickening Conditioner Also trying out.... Leonor Greyl - Masque Fleurs de Jasmin Nourishing Hair Mask Leonor Greyl - Huile de Leonor Greyl They all get 5 stars at this time because I am hopeful! I have used r+Co products before and loved them. This is what was suggested by my stylist as well as regular trims and treatments at the salon. My New Hair Goals! ￼￼Just getting healthy! Keeping my length and chilling out on dyes at this time. I do plan to do a black to purple ombré once my hair is happier but right now with all the breakage it will just bleed 🩸 out as my hair has currently been doing already with the boxed stuff. Hair Care is IMPORTANT ⚠️ ￼￼You got your skin care, don’t forget your hair! Use clean (vegan) products!!!! It will cost more but don’t keep packing sulfates, parabens and other harsh chemicals onto your scalp and hair!!! Think about it this way, cheap ready made frozen meals are convenient and easy on the wallet but....your not getting any nutrients! Same with hair care and hair dye. It’s cheap for a reason. Hair dye specifically, you get what you pay for! It is permanent color and PERMANENT CHEMICALS!!! They permanently stain the proteins of your hair and change its chemical make up. Chemicals that will make your hair dry and brittle leading to damage to your hair and breakage. No way out but to cut! 😭 soo if you want beautiful healthy hair, steer clear of boxed dyes. Not everyone feels this way but maybe after a decade and hormonal changes they might feel differently. 😁 Now I have to be patient, and focus on the health of my hair so I can keep my length. 🤗 Still sad about the silver though...
