Tips for Coloring Your Hair Red:

1. Choosing the Right Red

Moran Gallagher, Master Colorist and Educator at Mizu New York, says “Basically it’s all about choosing the right tones. Red is a really broad spectrum. It has to work not only with your skin tone, but I believe your personality as well.”

2. Don’t Wash Your Hair 

Before you get too grossed out, we don’t mean ever just not the next day. When it comes to reds of any shade, they are going to fade quicker than a brown will. “Do not wash your hair the day after you get it dyed. This will make the color fade.” The longer you wait to wash your hair, the longer the color will stay there.

3.  Don’t Do It Yourself

We are big fans of going to the salon to get your color done. Yes, it’s an expense, but at least you don’t have to worry about mistakes being made. “I especially would never recommend doing it by yourself. I would definitely suggest going to a professional. The subtleties of the tone can make or break the whole outcome.” When it comes to reds or adding red to your brown, we recommend going to a stylist.

Tips For Red-Brown Hair: 

1. Make Sure You Are Using the Right Products

When you start coloring your hair, you need to start using different products to take care of your hair. That means using sulfate free products and products that say they are for color-treated hair. Chelle Neff, owner of Urban Betty Hair Salon in Austin, Texas says, “The red hair molecule is the largest of the dye molecules, so it can slip out of the cuticle faster with every shampoo.” She instructs, “You must use hair products that are specifically formulated for color-treated hair. My favorite product that is designed for redheads is PureOlogy Reviving Red.”

2. Wash Your Hair Less Often

You might be used to washing your hair every day, but when you start using colors like red, it’s best to wash it less often. “Try to wash your hair as little as possible. I recommend once every three days on average to my clients.”

3. You May Have to Bleach Your Hair

“You can’t lift color with color. Only bleach can do that. So if you put a lighter red hair color on top of hair that has been previously colored a darker shade, you are going to be in trouble.” She explains the consequences, noting, “This usually creates a ‘hot root’ look, which means your new growth (or roots) will have a reddish hue and the rest of your hair will not match it.”

Rachel McAdams can pull off any color especially this brunette style.
