How can I avoid red tones in brown color?

by Lori
(Bellevue, NE)

Whenever I color my hair, whether light or soft brown, my hair tends to pick up reds, and I don't like that at all. I can't afford to have it done at the salon and would like to know which brand or color would be best for me. I really want to stay away from anything that will turn reddish. Please let me know if you can help. Thanks!

Avoid red tones

You can avoid red tones if you use an ash brown. L'Oréal is usually a good product to use , Wella is also good . Use a level 6 or 5 and if you don't have gray hair, use 10 volume developer instead of 20 volume. Use a 6A or 5A , the letter A means ash and is recommended to diminish red tones.

If you, want to color at home, You can use any product that has a neutral tone this will not eliminate red completely but will not produce more. It will calm down the existing red tone. You could try ash tones, this does eliminate red but it can look dull.

Any time you color hair with brown or gold, it will get reddish plus usually every ones natural hair has some red pigments and this maybe totally unavoidable.

Clairol Nice 'n Easy is one of the few hair dyes out there that do turn out very well. I use L'Oréal excellence light golden brown and it turns out perfect. It does however have a very slight red tone, but for me that is good. If you have a sally beauty supply store near you try there they are very helpful.
