Safty instructions


You know how hair professionals are always warning you not to use box dye’s .  There’s a reason for that, and it’s because of the developer.

Developer is a totally crucial element in the hair colouring process. It comes in different strengths, usually referred to as “volumes” which will tell you how much it can change your hair.

10 volume developer is the most gentle and works on normal hair types; it will let you deposit colour only.  20 volume developer is much stronger developer and will shift your hair one to two shades and this is used on slightly resistant hair types , while 30 volume developer will let you alter your hair 3 to 4 shades and is used for stubborn hair types .

Box dyes come with developer and dye packaged together, but the developer found in box dyes are offer a 30 – 40 volume (for extremely stubborn greys). If you are wondering what happened to your once lovely, soft and healthy hair….Well, now you know….

Weak and damaged hair types might be very sensitive to home dyes because of its extremely high levels of developer which will cause hair to become even more brittle or break.
