There are lots of creative things you can do with red hair color......

♦ There is a huge variety of red hair colors to choose from. You can color your hair orange/red, gold/red, copper/red, violet/red or just a modest auburn red, the list goes on and on.

♦ There are also many different methods you can use to apply your red hair color. You can do an all over color red, red highlights, have some red applied at the nape of your neck for a peek-a-boo effect, paint some red color sporadicly right onto the hair, the choices are limitless.

However, coloring your hair red and preventing it from fading are two different issues.

The wear and tear of life can take its toll on your red hair. Every time you shampoo it, chlorine and salt water, or even sun exposure can all take a part in fading your red hair.

Here are some tips to help prevent your red hair from fading......

♦ Try to use a low-volume peroxide when doing the initial color. There is less damage caused to the hair when you keep the volume of peroxide low.

♦ Protect your color from the sun by wearing a hat. If hats aren't your thing, you can spray sunscreen in your hair.

♦ When applying your root touch up always remix another formula for the ends. Recoloring the whole head with the same permanent hair color can cause unnecessary damage. You should use a deposit-only color formula for the ends.

♦ Use a color enhancing shampoo and conditioner for red hair. This will keep your red hair color looking new.

Coloring your hair red can be fun and exciting and knowing how to prevent the color from fading is essential for successful long lasting results.
