my natural color is a dark strawberry blonde/light red. The only other colors I can pull off convincingly enough are either a dark blonde or, surisingly enough (since it is so much different than red) a super-super light ash blonde. I think the only reason the super-super light ash can look natural on me is because my skin is so fair. But, yeah, I think I like my natural red the best

I often still dye it myself using Clairol hair dye [try Nice'n Easy in Light Auburn, 4.30].
I am a natural redhead and when I was younger used to use this hairdye to punch up my colour....
then I went on a natural kick and stopped doing it.
But lately everyone is asking if I have gone darker and I am getting so annoyed...
I may try this again to get a brighter red....
though I am hesitant b/c I love to tell people I don't dye my hair when they compliment it.

I adore Karen Elson's hair. I'm in such conflict about my hair color. I love my natural color too, it's very dark. So in the past I've switched back and forth between that and red. I think I might go red again, but I just cut off all my past damage from too much dying. Maybe if I go with a darker color like Karen's, it would be less damaging. I hope.

I would also like to try and get away with lighter brows than my hair color.

Ive found that as I have got older my hair colour has really changed. It used to be a much more intense auburn but now it seems duller. I want to do something with it to give it a boost of colour but Ive never dyed it before and I do like having natural hair. Ive tried colour glazes and use a shampoo specific for red hair but they dont really do anything for me. Do you think I should colour it?

some more images from handbag.com [someone sure loves red hair at that site!]

^ Sounds alot like me...
I have been thinking about it alot...
but have decided not to dye...
I am going to get a gloss done at the salon first to see if that helps any.
I hear they are alot better than the ones you can do at home.

I am going to dye mine red I have the picture of the coloour I want all ready but my hair is brown with no dye on it. Will they have to bleach it? I had it red when I was younger but I had had it very dark before that and it had to be bleached.

Is there anyone blonde who has tried L'Oreal Casting creme on their hair in the colour 'Butterscotch' if so...does it come out red, copper-ish or strawberry blonde? I am trying to achieve a warm look like when Nicole Ritchie and the Olsen twin went red.

It depends on how light your current color and the color you want is. They may have to lighten it a bit, but I wouldn't worry about it, especially if your hair is virgin.

FYI: I just read an article that said that red heads have more sex than any other kinds of people with a different hair color.

So if you're on the fence about dyeing it,
just do it!

^ Sorry... never tried it and I am not a blonde...

Is your colour now natural?...That can make a big difference with your result.
Also, everyone's hair takes colour so different.

i used to have bright (almost orange when it was freshly colored!) strawberry blonde hair. i've just decided that i want it back! my hair is brown now, and shorter. i definitely want my hair back... ah, i absolutely loved it. my hair is super ash brown naturally, but a lot of people thought this color was natural.
haha, i still remember the color they used - Goldwell 9KG. oh well, it'll happen someday soon. any tips for doing this yourself? the maintainance on this just isn't going to happen consistently enough in the salon.
