What about dyeing curly hair with box dyes?
“If the budget allows, avoid box colours. They’re one size fits all and too strong a product can ruin your curl pattern. If you’re going for a box hair dye, true semi-permanent dyes are recommended, which means they don’t mix the colours. These are more nourishing for curls. You could also add in a coloured conditioner to your routine once a month for enhanced shine.” - Tori SRSH,The Hair Lounge, Barnstaple.
“If a home treatment does suit you better, some box dyes recommended by curlies are:
- Naturtint & Herbatint (permanent)
- Directions & Crazy Colour (semi-permanent)
These are great to cover greys or add a touch of colour at home but if you're looking for a drastic change or to go lighter, we would always recommend seeing a professional. Henna dyes are also another natural option. Please be aware though that henna can cause a buildup of metallic salts that bind to the hair, and make it very difficult for future colour treatments to work on the hair”. - Charlotte & Emma atBella Box Salon, Hertfordshire.
