  • Hi Beautiful! Today I put box dye to the test. I have always been curious if this stuff actually works. Doing a direct comparison to professional color felt like the only way I could really uncover the truth!

      YOU SWITCHED THE HEADS!!! You switched the heads after you washed them because the box dye have darker eye shadow and eye brows and then you wash them and the “professional dye” has dark eye brows and eyes shadow and the box dye have light brows and eye shadow

      You obviously switched the heads. The stains were obvious and you perpousfully did a bad job on the box dye and it still came out better. It's better to bleach with a professional but dying darker isn't bad, also, the box shows you where it'll generally come out to on color from your original hair so you know what it should look like

    The scalp is dyed on the winning head because you applied the box dye with your hands and rubbed it into the hair/scalp.
    You might have actually got away with the switch if you applied the box dye professionally man 😂

    Brad, honey. People don't like being lied to, and your attempt at "duping" your viewers to not go with a box dye was a fail. You think we're dumb? This proves that you think your audience is stupid. Not a good look, best to address it and move on😘

    12:36 the box dye hair color has a red line at the forehead and is on the left side. 13:10 same red stain but you say its the professional one at 12:49. i would never go to a liar to get my hair done ever

  • Gaming with J Gaming

    The box dye when I bought it it was 7 dollars for me

  • Kristina Houston

    I have been dying my hair for years. You have to use the conditioners in the box. You said you weren't probably going to use it. I love how soft my hair feels after a box dye!

  • Raquel Rodriguez

    Um, you're actually supposed to leave the box dye on for 45 minutes if it's non-colored hair. If you're just touching up, then you leave it on for 25.

    After he’s applied the professional colour at 8:44, you can see a stain of dye that looks like a beauty spot under the lip on the left. At 13:46 you see the same spot but this time Brad’s claiming it’s the box dye head, but it’s not and this specific mark proves it. I’ll give Brad the benefit of the doubt though and say his clumsy ass messed something up at the wash basin and he’s accidentally mixed them up. I find it hard to believe he’d deliberately and quite obviously shit on his own reputation. If anything this vid should be a lesson to Brad about his own incorrect bias. It was just a lousy comparison vid. Anyway, besides all that I don’t think it was deliberate, and I’m still watching and I’m still a fan, but sort your shit of Brad 🤦‍♀️

    How do you guys know he for sure switched the heads because I’m trying to get a nice vibrant violet like the second head!

  • Floof The Bird
    Floof The Bird Day ago

    The odor criteria shoulda been left out. By the time you were judging the odor and affects of the box dye, you had already been exposed to the fumes of the other dye in an area that isn't well vented. Due to that, you really didn't have fresh senses to judge the box dye like you did with the salon dye. . .plus the salon dye was developing RIGHT NEXT to where you were testing the box dye, so, tainted sample as well.
    Plus you DID switch the heads for the reveal! I am hoping that was an honest mistake though as the two heads did look almost the same save for the eye shadow, and it's easy to miss a few marks, so if you switched them by mistake then, hey, it happens, you're only human.

  • Bella Carlin
    Bella Carlin Day ago

    It’s clear that Brad switched the heads.
    Please give an honest review if you do it again and 19$ and 13$ is not a 5$ difference it’s a 6$ difference because 19$ - 13$ = 6$.

    Where did you buy the box dye to where it cost $13. I get the same brand and it’s $8.95

  • Rowa Paragon
    Rowa Paragon Day ago

    Just gonna throw this out there. I have been using box dye on my head since I was like 6 at first to deal with lice but then I just kept doing it... I have honestly never had a problem. I'm 18 now and have never gotten my hair dyed professionally. From ages 6 till I was probably 13 I always had my hair dyed blond. And I always got told that my hair was gorgeous and vibrant and healthy. When I was like 16 I died my hair in the morning one day then went to the local salon the next and got it cut and she kept praising how healthy my hair looked... Box dye isn't bad unless you do it wrong. Also, I wanna say that he did a horrible job putting the box dye on the head. He could have applied it the same way he applied the professional dye just with his fingers instead of like... I don't know... What he did... Correct me if I'm wrong but yea...

    I actually used that exact box dye a couple years ago and it looked exactly that color (the nice one bc as everyone pointed out the heads were switched), BUT THEN.... it bleached in the sun after a few days and became this awful burnt red that looked so dry and drained and extra bad with my skin tone and it didn’t go away until my friend (hairdresser in training) redyed it for me 😫

  • Sandy

    Not a fan of that one. They do make one meant for dark hair or red hair called "Préférence Infinia" that I love. I use color brown black. I have a lot of grey...well white hair and my natural color is a dark brown. The coverage is amazing, and it lasts better than any. It comes with a tube of refresher which is garbage, but the actual dye is quite nice... That being said, there's nothing better than having a salon do it for you while you sit and read. (I just can't afford it every time)

    niamh d 4 days ago +1

    he definitely did not switch heads, yall are just seeing what you want to see, if you look at the 8:50 mark of the video the professional colour mannequin head has stains in the forehead area, the exact same stains you see on the professional colour head after they've been washed out, I'm really not understanding what box dye stains you think you're even seeing considering he WIPED OFF THE BOX DYE AND EVEN SAID "OH" AS HE REALISED HOW EASY IT CAME OFF, fed up of people on youtube comments always jumping to accuse someone of something, just admit that professional hair colour is better, oh and get a grip

  • Marisa Marauszwski
    Marisa Marauszwski 4 days ago

    they were definitely switched. But on purpose? We don't know , maybe it was a mix up and he didn't notice. But you can clearly tell that there is no way that the " professional head" came out more red then that box dye lol. no flippin way mann.

  • isabel ericson
    isabel ericson 4 days ago

    reallyyyyyy obvious that you switched the heads. Especially since the professional one had a spot on the chin form the dye. In the results you tried to keep it hidden but you can still see it at some points.

  • Ani

    I've used professional and box dyes since I was a teenager, and let me tell you, the best results I got with box dyes. My hair turns out softer, shinier and with a more natural color using box dyes. In my country permanent hair dyes don't smell like amonia at all, they are like a shampoo... I know you wanted to show how an inexperienced person would apply dye at home but you can mix it in a bowl just like you did the professional dye. Also you switched heads, the color spots on doll's neck clearly show they were switched.

  • Oliver27
    Oliver27 5 days ago

    People saying she didn’t switch them coz “there’s the same stain on the forehead in the blowdry and the reveal” - that’s because they were switched before the blowdry. Notice at 11:38 the smear on the neck of the box dye head and then at 13:01 the same smear on the “professional” one 🤔

      I noticed the same thing! When he was dying them he cleaned all the dye off the forehead for the box dye, while the professional dye one had staining on the forehead. But when he was reviewing them it was the opposite.
