The Difference Between Salon Colour And Box Colour – Hairdresser Orpington

You’ve probably thought that the only difference between colouring your hair at home and having it done at the salon is the price.

But there is much more to it than that.

The makers of box colour have the general audience in mind when creating their product. The only thing they consider is colour, since it’s impossible for them to take into account every person’s hair type, texture, length and thickness.

A good hairstylist can properly assess the condition of your hair, and thoroughly examine the texture and thickness—factors that are vital to creating beautiful colour. This is why your colour formula may change slightly from time to time.

Box colour wasn’t designed for this. It simply coats colour on top of the hair shaft. When colour is applied this way, it keeps light from passing through your hair causing it to look dull and lifeless. Eventually, it will look like straw, preventing any conditioning treatments from reaching the hair.

Professional colour works from the inside out. It is designed to penetrate your hair right to the layer that holds the natural colour pigment.  It helps to keep your hair healthy and allows for deep conditioning treatments. Those who professionally colour their hair can keep hair healthy and shiny for years to come!
