Red hair is the latest trend that has caught on big time. Red color suits almost everyone and is bright, bold and eye-catching too. Find the right shade for your complexion, and you are all set to go. Here are some tips on how to care for your red hair.
For naturally dark hair colors, make sure that you lighten your hair color prior to coloring it red. Use hydrating, repairing and moisturizing products during this process. Products like Matrix Total results in Color care Miracle Treat 12 Lotion spray is antioxidant-rich that perfectly conditions your hair, smoothes out the cuticle and protects the hair color.
For naturally light colored hair, use filler or an initial color deposit on your hair to help it achieve the flawless final red tone. You will need regular touch ups, approximately every five weeks, to maintain this look. A root touch-up product like Oscar Blandi Pronto Colore Root Touch up and highlighting Pen in warm reddish brown is a good product which helps hair to achieve natural looking color within a matter of no time.
To make red hair color last longer, use cool water when you wash hair and skip days in between washes. Washing regularly and right away after coloring hair, will make the color seep out as the hair cuticle might get lifted up. Make sure to use a color- safe shampoo and conditioning system, to maintain its vibrant looks.
Prevent color fading by using protective shampoo which protects the color from sun damage as well as enhances it. Use a UV protectant, to shield your hair from the harsh rays of the sun or use a scarf or hat to cover your hair.
For extra shine and moisturization, go for a glaze at home or salon weekly. Oscar bands at home salon glaze is a good product for this purpose. If you have oily hair, then choose a dry shampoo to sop up the extra oil and allow extra time in between washes. Use a root concealer touch-up spray to entirely conceal signs that your current hair color is not your natural hair color.
