Here are some interesting ways to help your hue last a few extra weeks. Which for red head can save them so much time, money and effort.

Red hair hacks

1. preventing fading

Every time your hair gets wet the cuticles swell with water and the dye molecules escape, making your fresh colour fade. To prevent this, try waiting at LEAST 3 days after you’ve been to the salon to ensure your hair cuticle is fully sealed.

Some people find cold showers help protect their colour.

2. going darker

Red hair will always start of dark and fade to the desired colour, as a means to make your hue last longer. Don’t panic when you come back from the backwash and your hair is a bit to bold for your liking.

The idea of multi-tonal colour on browns and blondes is to give the illusion of a natural finish. When the multi-tonal technique is used on bold colours like plum and copper, it is just for the beauty of it! ♥️ Hair by Maddie at @westrowilkley using the @hottoolsproeu #CurlBar #westrow #westrowteam #westrowilkley #plumhair #berryhair #burgundyhair #winehair #multitonal #ilkleyhair #ilkleysalon

4. get to know the palette

Red is not just red anymore. The palette starts as light as Apricot, then ranges through to ginger, copper, fire engine reds and finishes somewhere close to a vampy dark red/violet.

The range of different shades means referring to charts and inspecting photos is a must to make sure you find your favourite red.
