Red Hair Maintenance

Going red is a big decision. Before making the color jump, there are a few things you should be aware of when it comes to maintaining all shades of red hair. Here’s the 411.

Your Hair May Resist

Molecules in red dye are larger than other normal hair colors and can take a few tries before fully penetrating your hair strands. This can lead to quite a bit of fading that many women are displeased with. Don’t let this stop you though. It’s just a good thing to be aware of. To combat hair’s natural resistance to red, be sure to use a red-pigmented shampoo to prevent fading and to lend vibrancy.

It’s Hard to Go Back
Once you commit to red, it can be difficult to go back. Note we said difficult but not impossible. The reason this is so is that red hair dye is made of larger molecules and when these molecules have been applied a few times, they take a while to remove. If you decide that you are done with red, we recommend gradually going to dark brown and then stepping up to lighter browns from there to protect your hair. 

Consider Skin Tone
Selecting the right shade of red is incredible important. At Accolades, one of our expert hair stylists can assist you in evaluating your pigment to match you with cooler or warmer colors.

Other Accessories
Any big hair change can force you to reevaluate your sense of personal style and perhaps even change up your look. Before you head into the salon, take a gander at your wardrobe and makeup and think about what type of looks you desire.
