I really want to enhance the colour of my natural red hair but don't want to completely dye. Do you think highlights and low lights would work or would a (red) gloss be more effective? I've never done anything to my hair before so Im a bit confused about it all.

for reference my hair is pretty much this colour naturally:

hairfinder.com

and Id like it to be a bit more like this:

ive always wanted to be a redhead.
so back in december i got my friend who works at a salon to dye it a nice dark red.
now its faded to what looks like brown, unless im in the light.

when i get my tax return im going to make an appointment and go for a purpley red like Kathryn Prescott on Skins.
or something brighter.

what shade of red tends to stick longer ?

My current shade. Excuse the frizz. It's very humid here



I think that with red hair dye colourmefashion you just gotta keep doing it. You've really gotta get that color in good. When I first dyed mine frommy dark blonde shade to auburn the color just kinda sat on top and faded so fast. Now that'd I've been dying it for 1 1/2 years the color really lasts with the use of great products.

My first time dying it red. Color was pretty but hadn't really penetrated the shaft and was rich like I wanted...when it faded I had barely strawberry blonde hair.



This was the 6th or 7th time I dyed it. The color is really rich and stuck in very well. When it faded I looked like a natural Irish red.


This was after over a year of dyeing it. I hadn't had it done in a month and the color still looks amazing. I like Frederic fakkai color protecting gloss or something. it really keeps the color rich.

Oh, i did a shade kinda like that! I loved it. She used this cherry red shade. it was crazy dark and purple when it was first done but faded to a pretty true red.

When it was first done


About 3 weeks after it was done. The red dye faded and mixed with the previous copper dye. Loved how it looked.

I've been dying my hair red for the last year or so...
My natural colour is:

and i used LUSH Henna (Caca Rouge its called) to make it this colour

.

.
after 2-3 months it fades a bit to this

which I think still looks good
and the Henna smells so lovely - it's just a bit messy!

love that pic jenna maria. Emma your shade is so pretty-even when it's faded.

I got my hair done today. I wanted something bolder and more saturated. She mixed red copper with some normal red. It's this really rich berry shade now. She says after about a week it will fade into the copper that's already there and look brighter.
