Red is one of the most vibrant and beautiful hair colors, so it’s no wonder that it became a huge trend this year. Here are a few things you should know before coloring your hair red.

It’s High Maintenance

The most important thing every future redhead should know is that red is by far the most high-maintenance color. This means that you’ll need a bit more effort, time, and money to keep your hair healthy and vibrant. 

Find the Right Shade

There are so many wonderful shades of red such as burgundy, strawberry blonde, copper, and more. That’s why you first have to decide which color will suit your skin tone the best and, of course, your hairstylist can help you with this.

Less Frequent Washes

One of the biggest disadvantages of becoming a redhead is that red hair color tends to fade pretty quickly. That’s why you’ll have to avoid washing your hair too often and with hot water in order to keep your color from fading.

New Shampoo

Another thing to keep in mind is that you’ll have to use shampoos, conditioners, and masks for red hair in the future, because they’ll extend the vibrancy of your new color.
