How much damage can you do doing a box color?

Ok not going to joke about this subject but rather put things into perspective. Obviously if colouring your hair at home makes you feel better, we say do it and we will deal with it later honestly. Happiness is everything so if it brings you a smile even if it’s only for 5 minutes, it’s done it’s job!

However understand that whatever color you do now will be in your hair for longer than the lockdown is on. Getting the base wrong can take months to rectify let alone the cost to do it. It’s all about perspective honestly.

For example choosing which color to do based on a set of numbers or the exotic name of the color rarely is realistic or a perfect match ( saucy beige or Summer blonde are completely subjective )

You do you, do whatever you have to do to get you through this moment in time. We will deal with it later, the main concern now is keeping your sanity. Stay safe and stay positive

Did 2021 turn you Grey?

Last year was bad but in all honesty this year has been a nightmare for most, almost everyone has someone that has been affected. While we all could not have dreamt of the struggle that was coming or the challenges we would face just to survive. It’s been a lot for everyone, the stress, the trauma that was thrown upon us with such force no matter who you are it has changed us all.


Stress triggers the release of adrenaline and cortisol, making your heart beat faster and blood pressure to rise, affecting the nervous system and causing acute stress.

This process then speeds up the depletion of stem cells that produced melanin in hair follicles.

If you become less stress will it go back? Sadly no. We have to deal with the cards we are dealt, once the hair is grey ( or white ) it doesn’t go back to the previous Color, it just won’t. Should you be stressed about the fact you made it and yet have a few extra white hairs? Absolutely not! Hair can be coloured and you can do a lot of things to enhance the overall look.

The thing is, you’ve been through a lot, a few extra grey hairs should be the last thing you are stressed about.

Stay safe, stay positive

Corona virus headgear for your new shaved head

We keep getting asked for various tips on how to do this or that while in the corona virus lockdown. To be honest I don’t have the products at home to color anyone’s hair pink purple or brown let alone think anyone else that doesn’t do hair would. The best thing to do to get through this lockdown with your hair is nothing. The option is either leave it or shave it off completely, relax hair grows back!

What better time do you need to do something drastic? You can dress it up with various masks and designs and guess what? You don’t have to go out in public for weeks so not anxiety when people gasp or freak out and end up offering an opinion.
