Are you preparing to jump on the red hair train? This beautiful shade is classy, sophisticated and eye-catching, but there are a few important things to know before you apply your color. So, put that box of red hair dye down and read on for some helpful tips before you start!
Red for all
One of the great things about red hair is that it suits just about everyone. With the multitude of different shades that fall into the category of red, there’s sure to be one for you! If you have light skin and eyes, try a cool-toned, dark red shade such as cabernet or cranberry – L’Oréal Paris Excellence Crème 5.4 Light Copper Brown is a great option. If you have a medium skintone, you can opt for a brighter red, like L’Oréal Paris Excellence Crème 6.35 Light Amber. The best choice for those of you with a darker complexion will be a vibrant shade of red. Try L’Oréal Paris Excellence Crème 5.6 Red Light Brown or L’Oréal Paris Excellence Crème 6.45 Light Auburn for a flattering look.
Skip the bleach
Great news for all you brunettes out there! There’s no longer any need to bleach your hair first in order to get your color to take. Thanks to innovations in modern hair dye, you can now go from dark brown to head-turning red in a single step.
Caring for red hair
As with any color, it’s important to take care of your tresses after dyeing them red. Make sure you choose color-safe shampoos and conditioners, avoid washing your hair too often, and treat your locks to a color-safe intensive mask from time to time to keep your color as vibrant as the day you dyed it.
