Red Hair ♥ !!

Hey girls, here is a post about my hair and the new color :)

As y'all know, 2 months ago i dyed my hair to a purple black shade with red undertones 
with a Japanese brand hair dye, and it faded very soon, in a couple weeks,
 and the bleached blond colors
came back, so it was disgusting again. I didn't like it at all, 
so then i did some research on red hair and decided
to go for it :) Best decision made ever ! Love the red, i went to my friends private salon, and she did an amazing job on the color, i told her i wanted a red that has the 
same effect as the Rihanna red, i showed
her this color chart on my phone and she suggested Deep Auburn Red as the 
undertone, and then added Red
all over as the shade on top, i you know what i mean ;)
It looked great, you would only see the Deep Auburn Red indoors, 
but once you go under the sun, bom !
I got this bright red shinning through my hair, awesome highlights, 
i looked like i was glowing in red,lol. But i love it love it love it.  

here is a picture of my hair before, i don't have one that shows the back,
but it was lots of different shades from dark brown to dark blonde, thanks to the bleach

she started with putting the darker red in my hair for 30 mins,
after washing it out, she put in the bright red mixed with bleach all over for 20 mins
, she also added some long layers (i didnt have any layers in my hair before,at all
so it was flat and boring ) and side swept bangs(i had full fringe),then voila !

hello ! >:)

here is a picture i took when i was still in the salon, it was just indoor
white lights(the red shows through better under yellow),the
long layers actually made my hair look even longer when its down
and i thought, meh, its not the red i wanted
but i wasn't surprised until i went outside to have a look,
then i was really happy with it :)

these pictures were all taken with my phone, so the quality isnt as great as a camera
but as long you can see the colors :)

this is taken out doors with no sun light hitting on me, and you can see the red coming through 
already but not as tense as it would be under the sun.

the sun was almost gone that day when i left, 
so i took more pictures of it the next day,and here it is, so red
it was the exact thing i was asking for, very impressed :)

the good thing about having two different tones is so it doesn't have that
crazy bright red that makes you look mad, if you know what i mean,
just because i think it might not suit me, but i'm actually thinking about going for that
when this one completely wears off and doesn't look as good anymore

now we all know that red is one of the most difficult colors to maintain in your hair
so very simple and easy tips for it
-Use a colored shampoo for it every once a week,helps to enhance the color
and locks it down(first time i washed my hair, the water came out hot pink,
omg. scared me a bit, lols)

-Dont apply too much heat to your hair because it can damage your hair even more
and make your hair look dull make the red fade.(i try not to curl my hair
too much, hehe, but its too tempting)

-Wash your hair with cold water, not freezing cold or hot! Think, pores,
when you wash it with hot water the pores will open the the color in it
will get washed away, so the cold helps to lock it in.

the red shampoo i'm using is the De Lorenzo nova
fusion color care shampoo, i got two different colors,
Cherry Red and Fire Red
Cherry Red enhances the purple and red pigments

Fire Red enhances the orange and red pigments.

they both look the same in the bottle, a blood red color with lots of shimmer in it
i guess thats the stuff that helps your hair shine,
i wash my hair now twice a week,
i would use my normal shampoo for cleansing first(TRESemme Color Protection
Shampoo), and then i would take the Cherry Red shampoo(it says Massage color
care shampoo into wet hair, rinse & repeat, leave in for up to 5 mins
or according to desired result, rinse out and apply conditioner),
and then just use a normal
conditioner(TRESemme Colour Protection Conditioner)
 for it or maybe a hair mask, depends what i feel like

Since i live in a small city, they can only be found in two places,
Hair House Warehouse ($25)or GlamCo.($18),yes freaking
expensive for a small bottle thats only got 250ml of product in it
and i use at least 3 pumps everytime i wash my hair
ugh.but its a great shampoo
im using Cherry red at the moment, and it defiantly made the red
more vibrant when its outside, and more purple when im indoors,
so im very happy with it, ill start using Fire Red when i finish this bottle.
