Red Hair Dye – What You Want To Know Before Going Red
Coloring your hair with Red hair dye can be a bit of a risky business. It is always best to stick to colors that compliment your skin tone. Many women desire to try a shade of red at some point in their life. While red can have some very attractive hues, you will want to make sure that you choose the right shade of red hair dye for you.
Most people actually can go red; however, you must find a variety that will best suite you. This color can be tricky to play with, and unless you have some experience, it is probably not a good idea to attempt this shade on your own. You will at least want a professional’s advice on the shade before you start dying.
It is a good idea to ask your hair stylist to show you some samples of red so you can consider what you really are looking for. Some women find that they actually just want to add warmth to their color without looking too red. Some are looking for an auburn color. Some want to go red all the way. Still others totally change their mind about going red once they look at a sample. Looking at a physical sample will give you a much better idea of what you want.

Your stylist can help you a lot because she can look at your hair’s color as it is and determine how much color to add depending on the shade you already have. You need to achieve a balance of warm and neutral colors overall.
If you have a lot of grey roots to cover up, it is also a good idea to talk to your stylish about adding permanent color there, even iv you plan on using semi-permanent color everywhere else. Those stubborn greys are always very resistant!
Of course we all want our hair to turn out the way we pictured it. This said, if you don’t come out of the salon chair happy with your new color, remember that this is easily changed. Most salons will even do a second color on the house if they did not achieve the look you desired. Red hair dye is a fantastic color when you know how to deal with it.
