All About Color

I’m a Guy and I Tried A Custom Home Hair Color Made For Women. Here’s What Happened.

Like my dad, my grays came in during my late 20’s. At first, I went to a salon, but paying $100 every 6 weeks got old fast. So I started getting Just For Men’s boxed hair color to do it myself, but I could never really get it right. A lot of the time, the overall color came out too dark and didn’t do a great job covering the grays. That’s when my co-worker recommended I try eSalon. They create a custom hair color just for you, and then ship it to your door with everything you need. I loved that the whole process was online and I could dial in exactly what was right for me without wasting time sitting in a salon chair.


It was ridiculously easy. I just went to their website, filled out a couple of questions, uploaded a pic of my hair, and a colorist reviewed my submission to create my hair color.
Cost: $10 – The deal I got is for first-time buyers.
I signed up for their Color Plan, so it ships to my door every 6 weeks without my having to think about it. So it arrived at my apartment 3 days later and even had my name on the bottle. The box came with everything I needed and very clear directions, as expected. The experience was personal and I loved that help was there if I needed it.


  • My custom color
  • Developer & 2 pairs of non-latex gloves
  • Tint Brush (to apply the color with)
  • Classic Shampoo & Conditioner packettes (I ended up buying the big bottles later)
  • Stain Guard & Stain Remover
  • Personalized Instructions
  • Access to a personal colorist


I did everything the personalized instructions told me to do and it took me about 40 minutes in total. After the first application and rinse my hair felt much lighter than it normally does after I dye it. I’m used to my hair having a heavy, tired look right after I dye it, but that was not the case with eSalon. After a few washes, The color settled in even more and had a very natural look, letting some of the lighter tones through while covering up the problem areas around the roots.
“It already feels softer than when I used Just for Men. It used to take a few days for my hair to feel back to normal.”

Worth a try!

Overall, I’m really happy I discovered eSalon. It’s very convenient but more than anything, I am just relieved that I don’t have to deal with looking for answers to my gray hair anymore. I also love that I can evolve from here and dial it darker or lighter or shift the tone a bit. Highly recommend this product for other men.
