I’m all for pinching pennies and learning how to do more things yourself, but some things should always be left in the hands of a professional. Here are a few reasons why you may not want to dye your own hair.
You Could Do More Damage Than Good
Whether you are bleaching your hair, going darker, or going for a fun color change—there is so much more to consider than the color on the box. A salon professional will factor in your hair type, current damage, and whether or not your hair is currently chemically treated. These are just a handful of the considerations that need to be made when selecting a color, how long to keep the color on, how to care for your hair afterward—and even which hair dyes are right for you.
Color Correction Is Costly
With the growing tends in grey, hombre, balayage, and fun pops of color—trying to tackle these advanced chemical processes at home is tricky. In most cases, your result is not any where near where you expected. Worst case, your have severe damage and a color gone wrong, which can cost hundreds of dollars to repair.
Bottom line: even professional hair stylists have someone else color their hair.
