Frequently Asked Questions
Do Redheads Go Grey?
Redheads do not go gray as easily as other hair colors. This is because they absorb a lot more vitamin D, which leads to less hair color loss.
How Can You Maintain Dyed Red Hair?
You’ll need to make sure that you steer clear of the sunlight, as intense exposure to UV light can cause red hair to bleach over time. We would recommend that you put in a pre-shampoo hair conditioner to avoid it getting damaged when you are washing it.
You should also steer clear of chlorine, as this will be very damaging to red hair, specially dyed red hair.
Red hair has an unfair reputation, but we hope that some of these pictures have converted you to the red style. From dark cherry to auburn hair to brighter shades of red with blonde highlights, you’ll see that there’s something for everyone on this list.
