Why Home Hair Dye Kits are a Bad Idea

Seattle based Pinup Salon with locations in West Seattle and on Ravenna Ave offer a friendly warning as to why home hair dye kits are a bad idea.

Sometimes women just want to add some spunk to their lives by dying their hair but they don’t want to spend the money to got to a salon. Instead they run to the nearest supermarket and grab a box of dye off the shelf. Pinup Salon, a Greenlake hair Salon, explains why home hair dye kits are not a safe and easy alternative to professional hair coloring services. There are so many things that could go wrong and here’s why.

A Box isn’t an Expert

The most obvious reason why home hair dye kits are a bad idea is that they don’t come with an expert. The average person doesn’t know what they’re doing. They don’t know the exact color that they need to get from their current color to their desired color. The box may give some sort of direction but it’s still a box. It can’t look at the person’s hair and give them advise on the color that they should choose. This is where a trained professional at a hair salon comes in. Hair stylists know what they’re doing. They’ve done this a million times and they can give much better advice than the directions on a box ever could.

High Chance of Failure

There are countless ways that a person can mess up their hair by dying at home. They could accidentally apply the dye unevenly leaving themselves with an unattractive mix of their old color and their new. They might leave the dye in for too long or not long enough leaving their hair barely colored at all or much more colored than they would like. It could even cause a reaction leaving their hair a completely different color than intended or even causing burning on the scalp or cause an allergic reaction. The outcome can be hard to judge with a box kit.

From Home to Hair Salon

There is a very high chance that a home hair dyer will end up in a salon anyways because their hair didn’t turn out the way they would have liked. This will end up costing them more because they had to pay twice and it will cause more damage to their hair because of the need to dye multiple times. For these reasons, using a home hair dye kit is not advised. The chances of it being a complete disaster are much higher than the chances of it working out as expected. Going to a salon, such as Pinup Salon will ensure that their hair is colored correctly the first time around.
