If you have red hair, you are part of just 2% of people in the world with it. Celebrities with red hair look especially striking on the red carpet and the colour can really set off a glamourous outfit. Many people are envious of redheads and yearn for the same deep and unique shade in our hair. If you are considering dyeing your hair red, then you must also know how to take care of it. Red dye is more prone to fading than any other colour. If you are getting marred in near future then you can get your hair dye in red color.
Here are tips to keep your ravishing red locks fresh and alive:
Use the right shampoo
Use a shampoo that has been specifically designed to protect coloured hair. It would be even better if you can find a shampoo made for red-hair protection. A good quality will not only protect and prolong the life of your hair colour, but will also nourish and strengthen the hair itself to leave it silky smooth and in excellent condtion
Avoid natural killers
Red hair should always be protected from sunlight, chlorine and sea water. It’s important to choose a decent finishing product which does not let natural chemicals or light ruin your hair. The product should be made from a formula which provides moisture and maintains the glow, as well as adding that all-important UV-protection.
Go for regular treatments
Go for regular treatments at a salon, which can include professional hair masks used in combination with other colour-care products. These treatments prevent dryness and improve the hair’s condition. The results are smooth and healthy hair, which keeps its colour for longer. In addition , there are treatments, such as post-dye home formulas or leave-in-conditioners that can nourish the hair at home.
After colouring your red hair, you must not go swimming up to two weeks, because chlorinated water can be very damaging. Chlorinated water has a negative effect on hair dye that is mucch worse than tap water.
Get your hair cut
Red hair, because of the prominent colour, gets noticed easily. Split ends can show up very clearly, especially in daylight. Therefore, it’s wise to go for a hair trim at least every two months.
Using henna on hair
Henna is a a good topic for redheads to discuss. There are many different types of henna shampoos and rinses, which you can find at chemists. Red hair literally shines when henna is applied, because of the natural plant extracts which leave your hair glossy and polished.
