Best Hair Color Salons NYC. Home Hair Coloring vs. Salon Professional Coloring!
Best Hair Color Salons NYC. Surprisingly, we get a lot of clients that look at us puzzled when we say that box color is bad for their hair! We’ve always known this to be common knowledge and a few of those reasons you can guess without any background in hair color. We hear clients say things like “Doesn’t all color make your hair dry?” and “The box doesn’t say anything about that!”
One size does not fit all. We consider box color to be “one size fits all”. The idea of something like this is not perceivable in the world of professional haircolor and it cannot be relied upon. In order to achieve the color you want a stylist considers several factors and customizes a formula with different hues to make the perfect shade. Box color is made so that it can potentially alter a wide range of hair types & shades with no guarantee. We may choose to use a 3% developer on one person and 9% on another with the same color but the outcome will be immensely different. Most box colors use 12% or higher to ensure that it will at least do something to any hair type and that’s just getting dangerous!
As a woman, do you believe in one size fits all pants? We certainly don’t!
Hair color must be customized for each person. We are all unique in many ways and that applies to hair as well. We mentioned that professional stylists must consider several factors in order to give you a proper color service. For those who don’t realize the thought process it takes to come up with your formula we’re going to give a brief overview. Here are the main factors we consider when customizing your color service:
Natural level & underlying pigment. Skin Tone. Level of Porosity. Previous artificial pigments. Percentage of gray (if any) and more!
Do you know what demi, semi and permanent really means? In the world of box color there isn’t a whole lot of difference between demi, semi, and permanent haircolor. Yes, the box may claim that it washes out in a month… but will it? In most cases it doesn’t. This goes back to customization again, even with colors that “wash out” there has to be a process to consider what level and shade will give you what you’re looking for.
It’s important to remember that no color really washes out completely. In the salon there is a huge difference between the three types and each option has its own factors for successful application. There is no way that a box can figure out all of those things for you. There is ONE exception when it comes to finding a hair color that washes out. That would be semi-permanent (temporary color), and it is in a completely different category whether you are talking about box or professional color. Temporary colors only stain the outside of the hair strand and should last 1 to 2 weeks at most. There can still be a hinkering of tint left depending on how light your hair is.
The outcome of box color is usually an unwanted new haircut. Do you like your hairstyle? Whether it’s long or short… it doesn’t really matter because we’ve seen these disasters with all lengths. Damage is almost certain with repetitive use of box color. Generally… the ends to the mid-shaft are affected, and in some extreme cases it can be worse. We’ve all seen those dry, frizzy ends on someones hair… and there isn’t much a flat iron can do for that. There comes a point where if you want your hair to look good again-cutting a few inches off is the only option.
