Everyday people put their trust in educated doctors, dentists, lawyers, and etc. So why do so many people put their trust in a box of color instead of a professional colorist? The first excuse is usually, “I don’t have the time or money.” When I hear that it’s like someone is saying, ” I have a cavity, but no time or money so I’m just going to buy a pair of pliers and just rip the damn thing out.” A few painful hours later they realize they need to see a real dentist immediately and pay twice as much as they would have in the first place because they pulled out the wrong tooth!
So really stop buying that 3 dollar box color that turns your hair a lovely shade of pumpkin or my personal favorite shoe polish black. Stop coloring your bathroom walls, it will save you money on a can of that 2-in-1 expensive primer + paint. Oh, and please stop thinking you were born knowing how to highlight your own hair. When you are ripping 50% of your hair through a plastic cap from the 1980s, all your accomplishing is premature baldness. Not beautiful/seamless ribbons of light.
What did your hair ever do to you? It’s always been shiny and strong since the day you were born and you dare perform an operation on it yourself!? Forget the amateur show and forget those YouTube videos that say it’s O.K. Start a search for a professional colorist near you. Find a colorist who displays great customer service, continues their education, has professional tools, and is genuinely excited to work on your hair.
The salon is just like the doctor’s office. You go in, you tell them your concerns and the end result you desire. They then diagnose the problem, write-up your regimen and your on your way to a better you. Not only is your colorist going to perform surgery on your hair but he or she is going to send you home with the correct products to keep your color looking its best until your next visit. Now do as I say and you will never regret it!
