Box Hair Color & Metallic Salts!

What are metallic dyes!

Hey love, I hope your day has been fantastic! The debate Box hair color vs. Professional Hair color has been going on for years. Let’s try to shed some light on the facts.


Metallic dyes gain their color from "metallic salts." They are commonly used in hair color products. In men’s hair color, metallic dyes are used to change hair color over several applications gradually. This is great for men who don't want a visible, instant color change.

The colors are produced by a reaction between metallic salts and the sulfur in your hair protein. When the protein in your hair and the metallic salt react, your desired color is achieved. The metallic salts get triggered with the sulfur in the hair protein(keratin) and then turn the protein to the desired shade.

This is the thing: metallic salts, in most cases, do not mix well with any other chemicals. If you color your hair with a metallic-based dye, you will be limited with hair options moving forward. The adverse reactions to different chemicals could result in hair chemically smoking/burning and potentially melting off. Metallic dyes will dry out the hair, damage the follicles, dull the sheen, and make the hair become overall brittle. Just stay away.

I have more information on the way very soon!
