Drugstore Versus Salon Hair Color

More than 75% of women dye their hair to hide gray, add highlights, or change their natural color altogether. Whether opting for subtle traces of blond or going for an all-over change, coloring your hair can be a striking makeover … or a complete disaster. Most of you have at least one hair dye horror story, and it doesn’t matter where we got it done, at home or at the salon. Well that is not the case with us in our our hair salon with our highly trained hair colorists.

So, the big question most women have is whether it is better to dye their hair themselves or to head to a salon and let a pro do the work?

Should You Dye Your Hair at Home?   NEVER!

You may have heard that drugstore hair dyes are inferior or harsher than the dyes used in salons, & that is an absolutely true. The way hair color function and the ingredients used to make them do not differ between the drugstore dyes and the salon dyes. In fact, many of the companies that manufacture dyes for the major drugstore color lines are not the same dyes used by salons!

Is It Better to Get Your Hair Dyed at the Salon? YES!

So, why go to a salon at all given the number of do-it-yourself dye options? You might have a different hair texture, porous, over processed, bleached or very damaged. Drug store dyes contains major percentage of ammonia & peroxide and can damage your hair even more so. Dyeing hair can be a messy & disastrous process—  wrong application or just one small spill can make a disaster of your bathroom.  Not having to worry about cleaning up can be a very good thing.

Then there’s the matter of experience and skill: A L’Oreal professional colorist has the advantage of knowing the ins and outs of dyeing hair because of their training and education and their daily experience. This is especially true if you want to add highlights or lowlights without frying your hair or applying the strands unevenly.

There are five major situations where a salon experience is preferred to dyeing your hair yourself:

1. You want to lighten your hair more than three shades from your natural color. Regardless of how dark your hair is, if you want to lighten it significantly, think twice before doing it yourself. All dark hair contains at least some red pigment, and that can become overly evident in the lightening process if you don’t know how to correct for it. It is also difficult to lighten dark hair in a one-step process. Making dark hair lighter is a two-step process: first, removing the existing color from your hair, and second, toning or adding the shade (and its nuances) you want it to be. Those two distinct processes are difficult to get right on your own, so your odds are far better with an experienced hair colorist.

2. You have dark hair and want to dye it red. This is one that is extraordinarily difficult to do, either at home or the salon. The risk is that naturally dark brown or black hair can easily pull an odd shade of purple or burgundy during the attempt to color it red. This is one that we would strongly recommend never attempting on your own.

3. You have natural red or blonde hair and want to dye it red. It doesn’t matter what color your hair is, it is hard to dye hair red. To figure out whether or not your hair can end up the shade you want, it is essential that you discuss it with a professional colorist. Those with light to medium brown hair tend to have the most success dyeing their hair a red or auburn shade, whether at home or at the salon. But, if you try this at home, ALWAYS do a strand test first so you know how long to time the dye and what the color will look like.

4. You’re trying to fix a problem. Mistakes and bad dye jobs happen, whether you dye at home or go to a salon. You can always call the hair color consumer hotlines at L’Oreal, Clairol, Garnier, or Revlon, but you should also seriously consider getting help from a professional. Trying to fix the problem on your own will, in all likelihood, only make matters worse.

So, there are reasons to dye your hair yourself as well as reasons to get it done at a salon, or, do both, which is what we recommend. This is a brilliant way to save money, have the hair color you want as often as you want and when you want, and get professional guidance from a trusted colorist.
