  • Yes many times! But as you may recall, last time I forgot to add the color tube! It was under the directions (I was using a new brand) & my one year old was running in & out of the bathroom distracting me. My hair turned to orange frizz! LOL! :P

    What color are you doing?

  • Red. Going to get it cut super short tonight too. The a line Bob cut. If that's what it is called.

  • I ONLY color my hair with box stuff. Refuse to pay the money for a salon lol. But I don't do drastic color changes so if I miss a spot you can't really tell. I mostly color my hair just to cover stray grays anyway.

  • I have colored from a box before, but now I order professional stuff online (obviously I'm not licensed) because the results are better. When I was like 16, I did it from a box and missed a spot in the back. Now when I cover it, I go through it all with a vent brush several times and squish it in really well to make sure everything is covered. Good luck and post pictures when it's done!

  • All the time. Mainly just to cover greys. If I'm doing a drastic color change I go to a salon for that. I'm ready for a new cut, too. Chopping off some major fro.

  • I've always done it myself from a box. I get someone to look for missed spots after I apply it.

  • Yes, well, kind of - I buy the color and toner as separate from the beauty supply store.

  • I do to cover grays, but I have to use two boxes because my hair is so thick - so there's little chance of me missing a spot!
