Earth Month 2016 at Zandi K! Last Push!
Frankly, we have all done it. It seems so quick and easy to just grab a box with a beautiful girl, who of course has gorgeous hair, off of the shelf at the grocery store. Of course you want a buttery blonde with muti-faceted color with a shimmer serum and no damage for under $15! Who doesn’t?!? But Master Stylist, Krissy Stearns of Zandi K gives you the real down low on box dye.
Do you ever wonder why your stylist asks you so many questions about what you use on your hair? Do you ever feel like you’re in an interrogation room when you’re sitting in your stylist’s chair talking about what you want done to your hair? Well there are many reasons why stylists ask you a ton of questions about that box color you put on your hair a few weeks ago (Don’t worry… we won’t tell anyone!) There are many different types of color In over the counter “box color” and they all do different things. This is the main reason why we want to know what specific box color you put in your hair and even more important it is why you need to be honest with your stylist. I promise, it is all for your benefit.
CONDITIONING? LET’S TRY FAUX-DITIONING!
First off, let’s have a little conversation about box colors. All box colors lie to you! They are not conditioning to your hair! And NO! It’s not “just a rinse”. Most box dyes will come with a “conditioning packet” for after you wash the color out. Those conditioning packets contain petroleum based ingredients that coat your hair fooling you into thinking that your hair is not damaged or dry from the coloring process. Those ingredients have wax in them leaving your hair completely coated in it, and while it is soft to the touch, it is completely masking what is really going on underneath.
BUT IT WASHES OUT AFTER 10 SHAMPOOS! RIGHT?
And no ladies and gents… It is not “just a rinse”! Most of the “rinsing” color products have hidden consequences that show their ugly face further down the road when you’re trying to change your color. As a general rule of thumb, if it’s covering your grey, it’s permanent hair color… not a rinse. People generally try the rinse color products because they want something that isn’t going to be damaging to the hair. This is not the case with box color… because all box colors lie to you!
