    Fab post. I think hair colouring should be done only by professionals. Too risky.

    • cheskaaanels October 16, 2016 / 11:00 am

      When I was a brunette I always coloured my hair with home kits but now I’m blonde I find it way too risky!!!

    I don’t use the hairdressers, the box of dye works well for me. Have been dying my hair for 20+ years.

    • cheskaaanels October 16, 2016 / 3:50 pm

      Good that it works without problems for some! When I was brunette I never had any issues but wouldn’t dream of doing blonde myself haha!

    • cheskaaanels October 16, 2016 / 3:51 pm

      Oh no!!! I guess they can’t always be sure whats in them however most hairdressers should be able to sort you out!!

    Great post, I have had a few disasters with home colouring and so usually stick to colours I know will be ok. I want to go a lot lighter so will be getting that done at the hairdressers x

    • cheskaaanels October 16, 2016 / 3:51 pm

      Ooo lush!! I went blonde in December from dark brown and I LOVE it!!

    I always use box colours! Interesting to see it from a hairdressers POV though.

  5. Rebecca Smith October 16, 2016 / 5:09 pm

    I tend to go to salons when requiring my hair to be coloured, don’t remember the last time I used a box!

    • cheskaaanels October 16, 2016 / 5:19 pm

      Better to be safe than sorry isn’t it!?

  6. flowerpowerlife October 16, 2016 / 6:36 pm

    I had a disaster with a DIY hair colour years ago and have had mine coloured professionally ever since!

    I think covering roots is ok at home but I would never attempt the whole head.

    • cheskaaanels October 16, 2016 / 10:09 pm

      I wouldn’t even trust myself with roots!

  8. hannahhowell912 October 16, 2016 / 9:16 pm

    I’ve been colouring my own hair at home for years and luckily it’s never gone wrong…yet! X

    • cheskaaanels October 16, 2016 / 10:09 pm

      You must be doing something right!! Tell us your secrets haha!

  9. Rachel October 16, 2016 / 9:16 pm

    One of the reasons I never colour my hair at home is the fear of Green Hair, I would rather save up and go have it done properly x

  10. Rhian Westbury October 16, 2016 / 9:21 pm

    I colour my hair all the time but I only add red onto brown so if anything it makes little difference to the physical colouring of my hair x

    • cheskaaanels October 16, 2016 / 10:10 pm

      Yeah thats what I use to do when I was a brunette!

  11. Made From Beauty October 16, 2016 / 10:20 pm

    I am always so nervous to colour my hair at home, I’ll be going to a salon now!

    • cheskaaanels October 16, 2016 / 10:22 pm

      Always the best way to ensure its done properly!! I know it costs more but you get what you pay for!

  12. dearmummyblog October 16, 2016 / 10:23 pm

    My mummy would never risk doing her own hair! Its dyed black…..so imagine the mess!!

  13. teabeeblog October 16, 2016 / 11:30 pm

    This is so true! I’m not a hairdresser but everyone I went to after using a box dye said my hair was so overprocessed! I ALWAYS get it done professionally now so I don’t mess it up haha 🙂
    Great post!

    • cheskaaanels October 17, 2016 / 9:56 am

      Yeah exactly!! I’m so glad I can get mine done professionally now!!

  14. Yoko Meshi October 17, 2016 / 9:21 am

    I made a vow to myself this year to never dye my hair at home again, after ruining it so many times over the years

    • cheskaaanels October 17, 2016 / 9:57 am

      Oh no!! haha Well at least now you can go and have it done without worrying!

  15. Claire'scomfycorner October 17, 2016 / 9:28 am

    I once did blonde at home and my hair ended up looking a little green, I always go to the hairdressers now 🙂

    • cheskaaanels October 17, 2016 / 9:57 am

      Oh no!! Thats a fear of mine, or super orange!! I’d never be able to do it!

    • cheskaaanels October 17, 2016 / 1:09 pm

      Its so easy to get wrong isn’t it!?

  16. Jaklien van Melick October 17, 2016 / 1:12 pm

    I use the boxes all the time. The only thing that bugs me is that the grey coverage maybe lasts for a week and then they start peeping through.

  17. Jessica October 17, 2016 / 8:09 pm

    I always colour my own hair but that’s because I’m a qualified hairdresser and know what I’m doing – I only have a full colour anyway. My mum coloured her hair wrong once and her hair fell out. So many people do not realise the risks.

    • cheskaaanels October 17, 2016 / 8:35 pm

      Omg it fell out!!! I’ll never do it myself! Haha

  18. Jessica October 17, 2016 / 8:12 pm

    I’ve never been to a hairdressers in my life and I’ve always used box dye but I must admit I’ve had many mishaps, but I’m one of them people who’d just live with it haha don’t really dye my hair anymore but great post! Thanks for sharing!

      Ahhh Jessica!! Haha if you can get away with it why not aye!

    • cheskaaanels October 17, 2016 / 10:54 pm

      Hahaha! Im booked in on Friday yaaay praise the hair Gods!!

    I’ve only had my hair coloured twice by professionals. Other than that I’ve done it myself. x

  20. Sarah Bailey October 18, 2016 / 1:05 pm

    I really need to try and die my hair soon – I’ve been debating going to get it done professionally as I’m not sure I would manage it myself these days like I used to.

    • cheskaaanels October 18, 2016 / 5:14 pm

      Hahah I worry if I do it myself that I’m not covering all the hair, its come out patchy before!!

  21. wonderfullybookish October 18, 2016 / 3:32 pm

    I dye my hair red, and I have done since I was 15 (so about 7 years). I’ve always used box kits and they’ve always worked well for me. That’s not to say I wouldn’t love to go to a salon to get it done though – but at the moment I can’t afford it! Maybe I will one day, but for now, box dyes are for me. 😀

    • cheskaaanels October 18, 2016 / 5:17 pm

      Yeah when I was a brunette I used box kits to do red and purples, I feel like you can’t go too wrong with darker colours but I wouldn’t dream of doing blonde myself!

  22. Stephen October 19, 2016 / 9:39 am

    Green hair would stress me out. I have black hair so pretty easy to colour, should I ever feel the need to banish the grey!

    • cheskaaanels October 19, 2016 / 10:19 am

      I love going to a salon, it makes it feel like i’m being pampered and I get a bit of me time so its a win win!

  23. Helen Costello October 19, 2016 / 12:07 pm

    I’m so sad that I’m allergic to hair colour – I am married to a hairdresser so wouldn’t go near box colours. Used to make me smile when I used to see people with a green tinge.

    • cheskaaanels October 19, 2016 / 12:44 pm

      Hahaha!! Oh no that is a shame that you’re allergic to hair colour! Have you ever considered using henna for hair?

  24. Georgia Colloff October 19, 2016 / 1:41 pm

    I’m naturally blonde but a dark shade and when I was younger I bleached my hair, loved it for a few weeks then hated it so dyed black on top of it and yep I had the dreaded green tinge!! It was embarrassing. Now in older and wiser I know what to do and vice versa, I actually bleached my hair at the beginning of the year and got my hair grey at home. My roots where coming through thick and fast and I was panicking at what to do next. Fortunately I got a chance to review a salon near me and they did all over highlights for me so I could grow my hair out naturally without the band of root. I have to say I’m not going to be home dyeing my hair ever again unless I go pink or purple (which I’m contemplating!!)

    • cheskaaanels October 19, 2016 / 4:08 pm

      Hahaha thats so cool!! I wish I was brave enough to bleach mine myself but I’m scared of over processing and damaging my hair! Oooo I’m going to be popping in some coloured toners soon as I want a bit of colour too!

  25. Annie B October 19, 2016 / 5:38 pm

    I stopped colouring my hair to save it as I was bleaching it. Now it is my natural colour bug I have dreaded greys… the box dye does tempt me some days!

  26. The Kats Paws October 19, 2016 / 9:03 pm

    I have coloured my hair at home before but only if it was a brown shade, if I’m going blonde I visit the hairdresser xx

  27. fashionmommywm October 20, 2016 / 2:40 pm

    I always colour my hair at home, I find it easy to do and I can get on with other things while it is setting.

  28. MELANIE EDJOURIAN October 22, 2016 / 12:08 pm

    I stopped using the boxed stuff in favour of professional hair colour products years ago as they last much longer in my hair.

    • cheskaaanels October 22, 2016 / 12:30 pm

      They really do!! The quality is much better!

  29. Jodie October 29, 2016 / 11:36 pm

    I used to use box colours all the time as a teen/student, but was always disappointed with darkest brown hair…Hairdresser costs ended up being more worthwhile as hair was guaranteed to be in better condition and I got peace of mind! If I was skint, I could also wait a bit longer because the colour lasted. Ombre rocks!

    • cheskaaanels October 30, 2016 / 9:14 am

      Ahhh yes!! Its great having it done prrofessionally!!
