Hair Coloring from Blonde to Red Copper?

I would like to go red but am afraid that it will wash out orange. I like the deep copper color with blue in it. How do I keep the color from fading and washing out? I have fair freckled skin. Hazel/Brown eyes.



Red Copper is a nice choice!

Deep red copper will suits you fine and if done by salon professional, you should be less worry about the orange washout color afterwards. Most of the red color pigments are normally sits on the hair and not easily absorbed into the hair cortex. Every time you wash your hair, those color pigments will start to fade away and your hair color loose its vibrancy. Salon professional colors are more intense and stay longer on hair than home kit colors.

However, deep and intense tones like red and brunettes are always hard to keep and you won't be able to stop the fade-away. You can reduce this by using color boosters, color refresher and color protected shampoos and conditioners formulated for red hair or at least get those products that are for color treated hair. Also avoid sun and don't wash your hair in first 48 hours after coloring and avoid clarifying and volumizing shampoos.

But don't let this stop you from what you want. I say go for it.

blonde to red

I'm a natural medium blonde and i had my hair dyed a deep red- but more brown than copper tones - and it faded really well. I had not previously colored my hair, so the color took evenly (in the past i had gone red after dying a lighter blonde and the color did not fade well!). I eventually got blonde highlights twice as the red faded and it it looked great! Don't be scared- just go for it!

Try hair color for women of color they have lots of reds to choose from, they have lots more conditioners and they seem to grab on to the hair and stay better. Yes even better than salon hair color. I've done all the experiments and that seemed to work the best and the longest with hardly any hair damager!

Hair Coloring from Blonde to Reddish Brown?

I had my hair dyed blonde for sometime now and I want a change. I want to go darker. So my question is what would be the best color to use to go dark? I don't want to go dark brown or black but maybe a reddish brown or an auburn color. Any suggestions? Also would it be ok to dye my hair at home with a reddish brown color than go to the salon?

If you are going to do it at home , use a shade lighter - light warm or red brown. You will get a medium warm (red) brown. Follow the instructions in the box, start at the back and work to the crown and sides then the top. Do not put on the ends until the last 5-10 min. Wet the hair and suds the color and rinse well.. make sure the scalp is rinsed well . Towel dry gently and apply conditioner to the ends and put a cap over it and leave 30 min. Rinse with tepid or cool water.

I, was viewing your picture,and I, would suggest not going too red maybe a soft light reddish blonde even a reddish neutral blonde that way your delicate features will not be over powered,by red. If you cannot to go to a salon try a sally beauty supply store I, am not sure if there is one available to you there but if there is they are extremely helpful and professional and can help you find the best options for you also; their products are wonderful with a wide range of options including dyes that are more suited to your needs.
Good Luck!

med ash blonde to red
by: felicia

I, have colored my own hair and have gone to salons. I color at home now. But I, personally would not attempt going from ash blonde to red ash tones always have a greenish cast so if you, go red you could get very discolored even purple.
The best bet is to go to a salon for this one they can add some warmer tones. I am not sure on going red at this point. They could possibly add some golden with red. I am not sure but they will have to neutralize the ash tones otherwise you will get discolorations, and trust me, they will be very unwanted ones.
Goodluck stay in touch.

Bleach - What if go red
by: FLO BRIGGS

I think that going red is a good idea. Don't worry about your old hi lites, have your colorist put a filler (RED ) over your old blonde hi lites and then cover your whole hair with a red color. You must ask them (professionals ) what shade of red is good for your skin tone, Also have them condition your hair after the color is finished.
