Hair Dye Expiry


I'm always cautious when it comes to expired food, makeup and beauty supplies but never really thought about hair dyes. Does anyone know if hair dye expires if its never been opened? Anyone ever experiment with an old box of hair dye?

Expiry dates are true for hair dye too - it makes funky things happen with the chemicals and can cause them to dye your hair weird colours, not the shades they would have before the expiry.

Makes sense

I assumed it would expire, but there aren't any bb or expiry dates. How do you know if its still good? I would hazard to guess a year from purchase might be pushing it, but I don't really know. I guess you could email or call the company and ask but that is a bit of a hastle. They should really add this info to more products!

Yes Snowwhite,I think everything has an expiration date.I have used Hair Dye,Clairol to be exact that was about a month expired.It didn't do any harm to the ending effect.My hair still came out the color I wanted and it didn't wear out any quicker.I think as long as it is not too long past its expiration date.
