Let's Talk About Box Dye...

army_layers4sm Ladies, let's take a moment to have a discussion. Most of us have been there: the tight budget, the frustration with the current state of the hairunion, the urge to just change it right now. So we run out to the store, pick the box with the most promises and the happiest looking hair model, and take it home, and take a deep breath.

But it never turns out quite like we planned, does it? At least for me, it never has. Most of the time my hair ends up looking brassy and two-toned (my roots always appear to be a different color than the ends of my hair) and slightly, well, flat looking. Not quite what we had in mind for our pick-me-up hair color.

I want to have a discussion with you in the comments. I'll be doing my sister's hair here at my home pretty soon, and I'm definitely no professional. I get my hair colored at the salon, but my challenge is to give my sis the same great salon multi-dimensional look, from a box. Can it be done?

What are your experiences with at-home hair dyes?
