Box dyes have become increasingly popular due to their convenience and affordability. However, the chemicals found in these dyes can damage hair and lead to long-term hair problems. Professional salons can help remove box dye and restore hair health.
In this article, we will discuss how box dye damages hair and how professional salons can remove it.
At Synergy Salon, we have seen a significant increase in box dye corrections since the COVID pandemic ended. With the closure of salons during the pandemic, many people turned to box dyes to colour their hair at home.
Unfortunately, this has led to many people experiencing hair problems, such as dryness, breakage, and split ends. As a result, many of our clients have come to us seeking help correcting their box dye mistakes and restoring their hair health.
How Box Dye Damages Hair
The chemicals commonly found in box dyes include ammonia and peroxide, which can damage hair by stripping away natural oils and moisture. This can lead to dryness, breakage, and split ends. Additionally, the harsh chemicals in box dyes can irritate the scalp and cause inflammation.
Repeated use of box dyes can also cause long-term damage to the hair. For example, if box dye is used too frequently, the hair may become overly porous, causing it to break easily. Over time, the hair may also become thinner and less voluminous due to the damage caused by the chemicals in box dyes.
Common hair problems caused by box dye include:
Dryness: Box dye can strip away the natural oils in the hair, leaving it dry and brittle.
Breakage: Overusing box dye can weaken the hair and cause it to break more easily.
Split Ends: Box dye can cause split ends by drying out the hair and causing it to break.
Scalp Irritation: The chemicals in box dye can irritate the scalp, leading to itching and inflammation.
How a Professional Salon Can Remove Box Dye
If you've used box dye and are experiencing hair problems, seeking professional help can be beneficial. A professional salon can help remove box dye and restore hair health. There are several benefits to seeking professional help in removing box dye, including reducing damage to the hair and achieving a more natural colour.
The process of removing box dye in a salon typically involves colour correction and hair treatments. The first step is to determine the best approach for colour correction. This may involve using a colour remover to strip away the box dye and reveal the underlying colour of the hair. Depending on the extent of the damage, the colourist may also need to use a toner to even out the colour and make it more natural-looking.
Once the colour has been corrected, the colourist will focus on restoring the hair's health. This may involve deep conditioning treatments, which can help repair the damage caused by box dye. The colourist may also recommend specific products or treatments to help nourish and strengthen the hair.
Successful box dye removal cases have shown significant improvements in hair health. The hair becomes stronger and more resilient, with fewer split ends and less breakage. Additionally, removing the box dye can improve the overall appearance of the hair, making it look more natural and vibrant.
Steps to Take After Box Dye Removal
Once the box dye has been removed, it's important to take steps to maintain healthy hair. This includes regular conditioning, avoiding further box dye use, and protecting the hair from heat damage.
Regular conditioning can help moisturise the hair and prevent it from becoming dry and brittle. This can also help prevent split ends and breakage.
Avoiding further box dye use is important to prevent additional damage to the hair. If you must colour your hair, consider using a professional colourist who can use gentle products less likely to cause damage.
Protecting the hair from heat damage is also important. This includes using heat protectant sprays and avoiding excessive heat styling.
