Who doesn’t want shiny, glossy, healthy red hair? Here are 6 red hair tips you must know and try for gorgeous locks:

1. Accept the Hair You Have:

Meaning, know what type of hair you have (oily, dry, combination) and work with it. Make sure to buy products for your hair type and no matter what, always go “sulfate free” to protect your red hair even more.

2. Invest in a Good Quality Brush:

A soft bristled brush is the best because it doesn’t cause damage to the hair. Make sure not to brush your hair when it is wet because it will loosen the roots causing hair to fall out.

3. Diffuser or Ionic Hair Dryer:

Blow dryers carry so much heat that it can be damaging to your hair. Opt for a diffuser, or if that isn’t an option, use an ionic hair dryer. Both products will dry the hair in less time than a traditional hair dryer, but you’ll notice that your hair will be more healthy and less dry.

4. High-Quality Tools:

Invest in high-quality straighteners and hot tools because the cheap ones can damage the hair a considerable amount.

5. Drink Water:

Did you know some types of frizzy hair are due to dehydration? A healthy, hydrated and balanced diet can do wonders to not only your hair but your body too.

6. Avoid Chemicals in Hair Dyes:

Many redheads dye their hair to keep their “red” vibrant. Refrain from products with ammonia or other heavy chemicals because dying strips the hair of its natural oils, vitamins and minerals.

7. Natural Remedies:

We are a big fan of natural remedies for red hair and skin. They are guaranteed to give you a good result without the nasty chemicals.

Rock it like a Redhead!
