Whether you’ve been locked away due to social distancing or you can’t afford a colorist, we’re almost certain you’ve busted out the handy (yet oh so dangerous) box-dye at some point (we’ve been guilty of it, too!).
And it goes without saying, but regardless of the outcome, it’s surely a document-worthy experience. From the mess to the uneven color, sometimes you’ve just gotta laugh at yourself and share your mishap with the world.
If you’ve recently gone to the dark side (pun intended), keep reading for the best Instagram captions for pics of your box-dye job.

For the pic of you posing cutely after getting your box-dye on unevenly:
I did it at home… It’s called home-bré.
For the shot of you embracing your faux-earthiness:
Refuses to eat anything that isn’t organic… dyes hair out of a box.
For the pic of you surprising your followers with a box-dyed ‘do:
I’m ok, I just dyed a little inside.
