Bright red to a shade darker

Red hair color fad faster than other colors after 8-16 washes (7-10 days depending on the type of color you used; semi or demi permanent!). To accelerate the process, wash it with warm water and use normal shampoo that contains sulfate (don't use color treated shampoos).

Once the color faded, you need to visit a salon and ask them to evaluate your hair color and what they recommend to get it as close as possible to shade that you want. If your hair is in good condition and you used quality color product to dye it red then its possible that they use a color-touch (or refresher) to add some pigments and restore the shine in a shade darker. Your stylist can also fix the tonality so it matches your skin tone.
