The Bottled Red Survival Guide
By: Courtney Leiva
For those of us who weren’t blessed with beautiful natural red hair, it becomes quite a chore to keep our locks fresh, red, and beautiful. Maintaining dyed red hair (especially for natural brunettes like myself) can consist of the use of many products and therefore can be very expensive.
But, bottled beauties, you can now rejoice because I am here to share with you some how you can keep gorgeous color without breaking the bank.
Here are my color saving tips:
1. Color Shampoo is a must
You’ve probably heard from your stylist the importance of using shampoo for color treated hair, but did you know that some color shampoos actually strip your hair color?
Sulfates which are harsh chemicals found in many color shampoos, causes tangled hair and can strip hair color as well as drying out your hair.
Avoid the hassle by sticking with sulfate –free shampoos like those from Renpure Organics, which help protect your color without sulfates, parabens, and dyes.
2. Glaze it up!
Many salons use color glazes to help give your color a mega boost. However, you can get that same boost from home as many color glazes are available at beauty stores such as Ulta and Sephora.
Stick with color glazes such as Ulta’s Ultimate Red Color Restoring Glaze which restores hair color and adds shine.
Best part is: this glaze is under $10.
One of the more popular red glazes, such as John Frieda’s Radiant Red Luminous Color Glaze is discontinued, but still available through retailers such as Amazon.com
3. The Power of Argan Oil
We bottled redheads know that with every visit to the salon, our hair becomes more damaged.
So take back the reigns and deep condition your hair using Argan oil.
Argan oil is produced from Moroccan Argan trees and has been noted for its numerous cosmetic properties. Rich in Vitamin E, phenols, and essential fatty acids, the oil helps bring back life to damaged locks.
Try Argan oil treatments such as Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Treatment for $7.99.
4. Don’t Wash Your Hair to Much!
I know your probably cringing at the sound of this, but washing your hair everyday will fade your colored hair.
Red hair dye fades extremely fast, so try reducing the amount of times you wash your hair during the week to keep color longer.
If your hair gets greasy extremely fast, make a rinse mixing a few teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with a quart of lukewarm water.
