  • Hi Beautiful! Today I put box dye to the test. I have always been curious if this stuff actually works. Doing a direct comparison to professional color felt like the only way I could really uncover the truth!

    you were not partial, I saw your preference from the beginning for the "professional" color. that was really bad. And not to mention the switched heads.

    two years ago i went to a professional hairstylist and i dyed my hair blue, then months later i went back, bleached the roots and dyed them purple. In the beginning my hair were super healthy but after the second bleach they started falling and i couldn't even brush them. So i decided to dye them my natural color, dark dark brown almost black, and i went to this shop where it sold box dye and "professional dye". So i went for the professional one AND GURL, while dying them i felt sick and i had to stop cause i started sweating and i turned super pale. BUT, i got back to it and once i washed them and blowdryed them, they turned green. YES. AMAZING. Also that day i was going out with my crush for the 3rd time and he asked me to be his girlfriend and we've been together now for a year, so maybe it was a blessing?

    Me never seeing this video til now I was standing up for him against people who said he switched cause I really love him and he's funny but now seeing this I can't believe you switched the heads what is the point in lying if you know your professional dye is shirty then just say it don't lie about it lying is stupid the professional was obviously darker before and then you switched them so the box dye was darker

    sorry but if the box dye was 13 n Ur professional one is 19 its a 6 dollar because if it was 5 it would be 18 do DA DAM MATH

  • Christina Nystrom

    I’ve used that exact box color before and it turned out a billion times better than when I had it professionally done. I’m super disappointed that you switched the heads. There’s no reason to lie.

    Wow Brad I didnt expect so many butt hurt, uneducated people to hate on you in these comments right now. I think this video was fair and entertaining. I think that wella is decent and affordable and its available to people without a lisence, also I'm not surprised that it made the hair shinier than the l'oreal Paris. Dont let rude people get to you. Keep living your best life.

  • do you know chong jojun balsa?

    bruh i noticed immediately that he switched but i didnt wanna believe it until i saw the comments

  • thepurplefren

    I don't like box dyes simply because after using them for years they fucked my shit up. Like frizzy as hell damaged as hell hair. I used one just recently because I had gotten it for my birthday and it gave me 2nd degree chemical burns on my scalp and years. I will and will forever stand by Arctic fox as my dye. But you can definitely tell that those heads were switched. If you want to warn off box dyes just watch box dye fails or just dedicate a video talking about the long term dangers. This was pathetic.

  • Shelby Slayton
    Shelby Slayton Day ago

    I used to use that specific dye, it was really good since I didn't have access to a sally's. I used the blue black from that brand on my roots and the red on my ends. Its the only box dye I ever trusted. I'd rather use sparks (without lightening my hair) and arctic fox though.
    And also, you can tell he switched the heads, that color in the box is vibrant as hell and I would know, I used it for over a year and my grandma complained because it was "too bright". I even tried ion once for the same color, it wouldn't even take the way the feria did.

    Personally, I always use Splat Hair Dye. It works out great for me and is a good, cheap option for those of us who can't convince our parents to let us get our hair dyed professionally. No disrespect to Brad or his video, though. I know everyone's saying that he switched the heads, but whether or not he actually did, I still like him, his videos, and his reviews.

  • Donna Welch
    Donna Welch 2 days ago

    For a demi color box dye always does a better job on my hair and it covers my grey. Had several hair dressers over the years tell me how healthy and shiny my hair. Everyone is different. I finally found a hair dresser who would put my box color on my hair. She will use professional if I do permanent. My natural hair color is black. I usually go red. I have been blonde quite a few times. We just took my blonde back to red with my box dye. My hair still looks fabulous. It is important to know that box color is like professional. There are good brands and bad brands. My box dye is ammonia and parabens free. It doesn't irritate my scalp or smell. I have been dyeing my hair for 30 years. My step mom was a cosmetologist and started dyeing my hair when I was 13. Also using the conditioner that comes in the box is important. That gives you the softness you are looking for. Even with my gray's 25 minutes is enough time. He is being overdramatic for no reason.

  • Alyssa Papke
    Alyssa Papke 3 days ago

    Im not gonna get into the switched heads debate but I have been using boxed dye since i was like 13 and
    1. Use a comb and section it
    2. The smeall isnt that bad
    3. I always either do it outside on the porch or in the kitchen on a towel because sometimes it drips
    4. Read the instructions it says to work in sections and use a comb
    Also the "usability" and "price" marks need to be adjusted for the professional dye because I would have to buy a scale and the brush he is using to apply it and mixing it like that is honestly kinda intimidating for someone who hasn't gone to beauty school.

    Never had a box dye do me wrong. Once I had a professional dye my hair and it did not change color at all. I was 17 and a redhead. I wanted to go blonde. I had to go home do an all over bleach and then dye it myself. I also have dyed my daughter's hair with box dye and used Sally's products. Got similar results. Saved a lot of money with the box.

    The real thing i wanna know is what's that blue diy you have on your hair is, damn that's bright.


    On box dye if you look on the back it says how that the shade depends on the original color of your hair in the first place as to what the final results will be and will show examples

  • Marduk D
    Marduk D 3 days ago

    They were obviously not switched because of the stain on their foreheads. Also I wish people would make more educated arguments. If you don't understand why the colors react the way they did or why developer and professional colors are different than not even knowing what you are putting in your hair than you should learn more about it before you just base your opinion. And if you don't agree then say something more than I've used it before. People can produce different results because they are a variable. You may have left it in longer, had a different hair type, or used a different amount. Why is one better than the other. What does the better one do to the hair that the lesser one doesn't do. The professional is way more controlled. You also know what you are putting in your hair and what you expect it to do.

    I think box dye is good depending on what you're doing! If you're going for black hair 10/10 box dye. I get a box of literally 4 dollar hair dye and it turns out perfectly fine but once you get bleach and color involved then.. go professional.

  • toxigenic

    It's been my experience with box dye that it just deposits color, it doesn't lift at all (unless you're bleaching your hair blonde). I thought the box dye did a decent job since you started with dark brown hair. Just my opinion.

    Box dye is cheaper. You are basing the price without coupons and weekly specials. >_> On weekly special and coupons you can get three boxes for under $15.... that is $5 per box... that is ridiculously cheaper than the professional which rarely is on special. Also from my own experience, box dyes tend to be shinier at the end. I had gotten better results using box dyes. Of course I never used Feria... that is garbage. You purposely choose the worse box dye for that color, I would've used either Garnier or Schwartzkoft. You are also using poor economic skills to showcase the price difference ( again coupons and weekly ads are a hair coloring fanatics' best friend). This video has a lot of personal agenda dogma.
