WERE THE MANNEQUINS SWITCHED?? - Recreating Brad Mondo's Box Dye vs Professional Dye Video

  • Published: 11 February 2019
  • I saw a video from Brad Mondo recently where he tests out box dye vs professional dye and scores them. I recreated that video here!

    See Brad Mondo's Original Here:
    I PUT BOX DYE TO THE TEST (Is it really that bad) https://youtu.be/ApU6UGwNW5k

    This video intends no disrespect to Brad Mondo, I was simply curious and wanted to test it out for myself.

    PS INTERNET DO NOT COME FOR ME. I'm not a professional and this is just for fun.

    Thank you so much everyone for all the views, comments, and likes on this video. I never imagined I'd have such a positive response and that my subscribers would jump up from 9 to 472 and counting. I really appreciate all the kind words, feedback, and support. I hope you stick with me as I put out more content, learn about editing, and hopefully grow. :)

      Draya Does It The only difference between box and Pro is strength of the developer.

      You could probably get that dye off the mannequin with a few swipes of nail polish remover. Then rinse w/ a wet rag.

      Ya! I should have. I got mine as a gift from my father-in-law a few years ago. I should have looked it up!

    I am so GLAD I seen this I loved mondo til I seen this exact video you are recreating and after I watched it I felt he was not authentic and I couldn’t TRUST anything he said! I totally slacked off watching him! Literally only watched a couple of his videos since- so I am here two minutes into your video and cannot wait to hear the outcome

          You bought the professional dye in the most expensive way possible. Someone who plans to do it more than once will get a bigger(and therefore cheaper) bottle of developer, and they will only buy the bowl and brush once. You also got one of the most expensive brands of dye they sell. Some brands only cost $5-6. And, they often have sales on the color and developer like buy 2 get 1 or buy 1 get 1 half off so you can stock up, as well as deals like free developer with purchase of color.
          I know the point was to follow brads experiment exactly, but if you're going to judge on price then you need to consider that using professional dye has higher starting costs but overall becomes cheaper the more you use it. Not to mention you're reducing plastic waste by not using disposable applicator bottles. ☺️

            You are soooooo sweet I love how even though you think the heads where switched you still like him I mean it was wrong of him to switch them but it might of happened by accident it makes me sad how many people will just hate others for something with out any proof like we don't know if he did it on purpose.

              Slightly random, but whenever he's judging someone's hair, saying it looks awful/terrible. I'm sitting here like, "it doesnt look that bad" And it's usually towards box dye reactions 🤷‍♂️

                    Thanks for your comment. I'll check out your video. :) Also, I uploaded a couple new videos over the last couple weeks. Check them out! I have more planned, but I ended up getting a lot more shifts at work these last few weeks so my uploading got delayed. But stayed tuned - I'm hoping to get one up this week. :)

                    I love the guy, but I was doing a lot of face palming in his vid. Props to the fun home test but nothing was done properly to achieve a proper test result. Not to mention the mannequins. I thought it was just me lol
                    Great vid. Very much enjoyed!

                      Ok you all have made some amazing comments on here!!! And i am licensed cosmetologist and if you are licensed and wanted to really test “professional” color he could have gone to the supply stores only licensed professionals can enter...... so the Sally’s color threw me off there. If you are a real hairstylist then you would easily be able to tell that the wella color was the gross darker color. Wella color is absolute crap to use and does come out worse than box dye!!!

                        As a professional hair stylist myself, the box dye may be more "vibrant" however, that is only because this color is more of a true red or red violet instead of the violet color that was supposed to come out. I think that was one of his points, you don't know how true to color the box dye will be. To me, as a professional colorist, if a client of mine asked for a purple based color and got this red color they would be upset.

                          Look they are completely different colors. They shouldn't have been compared to begin with. I think they both worked nice depending on the color you are going for. I always do my research before picking out either or because as you can see the color will never come out how u see the picture of the woman of the box because it all depends on your hair color or type. Overall Brad shouldn't have switched the dolls he could of just said hey you know what seems like these colors are different but they both worked nice 🤷‍♀️ instead of trying to deliberately shame box dye since the moment he started the video. Either way he is still my freakennn idol I love him because he is just human but so bright spirited k!!

                            I recently dyed my hair with the L'Oreal V38 and I love it. I've been using L'Oreal hair box dye for years and never had a problem. Once, I went to a salon to dye my hair red professionally and it was a terrible experience. I had hot roots and I could barely notice the red dye on the rest of my hair.

                                  I've always used box dye and I go from black dye as in my picture to platinum blonde all the time all you have to do is remember that bleach 40 vol will only lift 4 shades. You're not going to get platinum in a day it's week of red brown then orange then yellow before you get white let your hair rest after each bleach session don't be tempted to do more than once at a time and treat your hair in-between sessions be prepared to wear a wooly hat for 3 week to 6 depending which brand use use of bleach I've always used John Frieda born blonde for dark brown to black hair works the best for me the bleach itself is purple colour so helps with the brassy tone a little

                                    I use to like brad mondo but when he did that video I literally didn’t libel him bc the results didn’t come out how he wanted and he was real salty about it.

                                      I started to wonder about Brad Mondo after noticing that almost every time he actually does hair, he screws it up or it just doesn’t look right, like trying to replicate braids or coloring. The way he holds tools like scissors looks awkward and he says he’s done hair for 14 years? How is that possible! Also found a discussion board where people were saying he’s not a certified stylist. I have been a subber of his from his start - always thought he was funny but now he seems different

                                          How come no one uses the applicator bottle like they are supposed to? You are supposed to use the tip to separate the hair like you do with the professional color..

                                              I'm still not over how bad Brad was at matching colors. How was he ever going to be able to compare two things that were never going to be comparable? As a former lab assistant and the daughter of a veteran research biologist: his experiment was flawed from step one and an absolute mockery of the scientific method. Good on you Draya for doing a decent peer review of the original experiment!

                                                Well... he used Wella, so it probably wasn’t very good. lol of all the professional dyes, he chose that one? It also would have worked better for him if it was a blonde manikin. Oh well, I’m just a cosmetologist, what do I know? Lol

                                                  Brad is not the best hairdresser and i don’t like this work most of the time 🤷🏻‍♀️ He speaks so highly of his work and his prices are CRAZY and he does not do a good job. I believe he really did switch the heads so that he can “prove” to his subscribers that professional color is the only way to go, but he couldn’t even make it work 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

                                                      Brad is petty. I had a lot of respect for him up until literally today. He deleted my comments. All I did was ask him what the difference between box dye and salon dye was and that box dye works better on my hair and lasts longer. Idk... I feel differently about him now.

She was rude to Caito Potato because she thought paying $70 for 2 braids was too much. And it is! She went on a rant about stylists being paid for their time... Lmfaoo 2 braids takes 3 minutes stop it sis. 3 mins of ur time isn’t worth $70 u ain’t shit.

                                                              He is so fake and mediocre. I even question if he’s actually a licensed professional hair dresser at all..

NO FUCKING WAY. those mannequin heads were a straight level 3. literally a couple of steps over black. level 5-6 would be fucking ginger.
