“You’re a redhead? You don’t look like you have red hair to me.”
Is it just us or do you HATE when someone says the above?
Fading red hair is a beauty dilemma many redheads face, especially during the winter. It can happen to redheads of all ages. Your red locks can turn either strawberry blonde or brassy brown, depending on your natural red color. Many natural redheads can have a difficult time taking the plunge to ‘up’ the red in their hair. We get it. Natural redheads are proud to be, well… natural.
Don’t worry, you’re in luck. There are several ‘redhead friendly’ glosses currently on the market that are great for making red hair more vibrant. Plus, you won’t have to go to the salon and dish out unnecessary money to get glosses every 8-12 weeks. These products can all be used at home and they’re all super easy to use*. Plus, they’re ‘Redhead Friendly’ approved!
We may receive commissions from links on this page, but we only recommend products we love and deem ‘redhead friendly’.
This semi-permanent hair color gloss (seen in the February H2BAR Box) adds a dose of shine and refresh to faded red tones. Opt for the Radiant Hair Color Kit if you do not have the tools necessary to achieve this at home, such as gloves (to avoid getting color on your nails and hands) and a cap. $30 (Shop now)
Watch the H2BAR tutorial below on how to use the product!
