My natural hair colour is a non descript brunette shade, which is quite two dimensional. Since around the age of 17, I’ve dyed my hair an array of colours but my favourite is red. I love. how an all over red hair dye gives my hair warmth, and vibrancy. However, red hair dyes and styles require quite a lot of maintenance to prevent them from fading. The reasons for why a red hair dye fades quicker than others is down to the size of molecule, red having a larger heavier molecule, making it more difficult to penetrate the hair shaft, so it just clings onto the surface. Whenever I dye my hair a shade of red at both a salon, or at home.. I’ve found it to last for just two weeks, unless I have it bleached prior to the application of red hair dye, which I try to avoid to protect my hair. To keep my hair from fading, I prefer to use a haircare routine which incorporates products specifically for maintaining red hair. The latest product I’ve been using to keep my hair looking as vivid as possible is the Wella Professionals Color Recharge Conditioner £11.85* in ‘warm red’.
“This rich conditioner refreshes and maintains the multi-dimensional colour of red tones, leaving hair intensively conditioned and with a soft touch. With colour-depositing pigments.”
