I was not born a red head but I will die a redhead if I can help it. My Grandmother was a box color redhead for most of her life. All those old and formal family photos (Olan Mills) have faded in such a way that I have tons of childhood photos where my hair is very red so as far as I’m concerned this. is. natural. Whether I’m going to keep believing that lie is up to me but any of you that get red hair color know it can be so hard keeping your color fresh.
I’m almost 48 so at this point I’m also fighting gray hair as well as typical fading. I thought I might give a list of my tips for keeping red hair bright & vivid.
I’m sure there are many other things I could be doing to save my color but these are the things I’m careful of. I will say however I was doing a little research and found two suggestions for things that I’m not currently doing but they make sense. I read that a deep conditioning treatment will keep my color the most vibrant and that I should consider a heat protectant for blowing my hair dry. I currently only use a heat protectant when I’m curling or flat ironing my hair but I’m literally blasting it with heat to dry it so I think I’m going to add that to my routine as well.
You may or may not already be doing some of these things but it’s not a bad idea to review your hair routine once in a while to make sure you’re doing all you can to keep your color looking as good as you can for as long as you can.
