Redheads can have a harder time attaining these results because we have fewer hair strands than any other color but each red hair strand is thicker which makes it appear (and feel!) super full. Red hair can also be more coarse and sometimes coarse hair lacks shine and vibrancy.
The Fall ‘Redhead Season’ Themed Deluxe H2BAR Box Review
I was so excited when I saw the huge, bright red H2BAR Box show up on my doorstep.
It’s finally Redhead Season and the Fall H2BAR Deluxe Box is the perfect way to prepare and celebrate this new season. Fall is the perfect time to show off your red hair and make everyone envious, but it is also important to remember to keep your skin hydrated and red hair vibrant in the cooler months.
I’ve had time to try out the Fall Deluxe H2BAR Box and below are my honest reviews on each one. I love trying out new products and I find that I use all of the items a lot:
My hair feels so soft when I use this leave-in treatment. I comb it through my red hair while it’s damp. It is lightweight, has 11 great benefits, and smells amazing! It adds shine, controls frizz, prevents split ends, and protects my red hair in the sun with UVA/UVB filters.
2. John Frieda Wonder Drops, $5 Value
This hair mask is a wonderful quick fix. I love to give my red hair a little TLC with this product about once a week. I swap it out with my conditioner. It only takes 5 minutes for your hair to feel incredible.
I’m a big fan of anything that involves the sea. The ocean has so many minerals in it that are beneficial to our skin so it’s great to see that this product has an abundance of sea botanicals and jungle plants from Polynesia in it. It smells like coconuts and will make you smile every time you use it to moisturize.
This night cream is interesting because of the charcoal ingredient. Charcoal is known for its detoxifying benefits so not only will this crème moisturize your skin, but it will also help draw out impurities. It also has tea tree, DMAE, and green tea in it to help heal your skin. I love using this at night time before bed.
This is my favorite product in the box!This is such a luxe product. It is beautiful and so cooling on the skin. I love to use this on my face to relax. It also promotes a healthy, glowing complexion. Watch the tutorial below!
This is such a cool product. Usually, moisturizers are creams, but this is a gel. It is cooling on the skin, but also helps clear pores of impurities and excess oils. It contains 24k gold which is also believed to provide rejuvenating and detoxifying effects. My skin feels firm, soft, and revitalized after using this gel.
This auburn red color is the perfect match for my redhead brows. My brows are a brown/auburn color and this shade isn’t too orange like some other eyebrow products I’ve tried in the past. I love the chiseled, precision point to color in my brows, but I am a sucker for an eyebrow pencil with a spoolie on the end because it really helps blend the whole look together (and make it look more natural).
15. Mystery Item, $25 Value
I received a Paul Mitchel conditioner. I love the way it tames and moisturizes my hair. I am a natural redhead, but it can also be used for color-treated hair.
8 Tips to Banish Dry, Irritated Skin This Redhead Season
Our sensitive, freckly redhead skin means this time of year can wreak havoc on our delicate faces. Colder air outside can steal moisture from our skin, while indoor heating can also cause dryness.
Taking care of your redhead skin is important regardless of the weather. Here, we take a look at the top tips for ensuring your skin is always glowing –– no matter what time of year it is!
1. Moisturize daily
Your lightweight summer moisturizer won’t cut it in these colder months. Choose one with ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin, which help bind moisture to the skin and keep it healthy and hydrated.
Change up your diet and add some healthy fats like walnuts and avocados which are thought to help dry skin. Drink plenty of water.
3. Exfoliate weekly
Get rid of unwanted dry flaky skin by gently exfoliating. Try to avoid “physical” scrubs that contain bits of grain in it; these can be rough on sensitive skin and can cause more problems than they solve. Instead, look for a chemical exfoliant. There are two main types of chemical exfoliants. AHA’s (Alpha hydroxy acids) include ingredients like glycolic acid, lactic acid, and malic acid, while BHA’s (Beta hydroxy acids) include salicylic acid.We recommend exfoliating 1-2 times a week, depending on how much your redhead skin needs it.
Antioxidant serums are great for using all year round. Look for ingredients like vitamins A, C, and E, as well as niacinamide. If you’re sensitive, be careful with anything containing vitamin A or C in as these can cause a bit of redness and discomfort until the skin adjusts.
Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean you should skip this vital step! Believe it or not, the sun’s UV rays can penetrate through the cloud, so make sure you’ve stocked up on your favorite facial SPF (50, obvs) to protect skin from sun damage and sunspots.
Find a cleanser to use every day with zero perfume/fragrance. Ingredients like chamomile and oatmeal are great for sensitive skin. Using the wrong cleanser each day can strip the skin of its vital top barrier and lead to dryness, irritation, and even blemishes.
There are many skin masks out there, but don’t be scared to dabble in a bit of home DIY. Honey, oatmeal, avocado, and mashed banana are all ingredients you can find in your cupboard that help to nourish and moisturize skin.
There is no better combination than the shades of red against crisp autumn leaves. In fact, fall might as well be renamed ‘Redhead Season‘. There are so many fashion trends circulating right now that compliment a redheads’ aesthetic. There are always the fall staples like boots, sweaters, etc., but this year, we’re going bold.
The 90s are making a comeback with sweater vests and they are so pleasingly versatile. You can layer them over a button-down, polo or crewneck. Choose to dress it up with a skirt and heels or keep it casual with some mom jeans and booties.
If you want to encompass the “boss babe look,” then suit trousers are the answer this fall. They come in an array of colors and can be paired with heels or mules and blouses or crop tops. The combinations are endless.
How to style: White trousers with a chunky belt, burgundy crop top, and mules
Okay, is it really fall without a flannel? Keep them coming! This year, flannels, but especially flannel jackets are all the rage. Brands are offering so many options aside from traditional reds and browns, making these so fun for a cute day outfit or sexy night outfit.
7. For the Lazy Redhead: Sweats, Sweats, and More Sweats
Last, but absolutely not least, is the outfit we’ve all been waiting for. Complete your daily tasks, school work, coffee runs, or even fancier events in your sweats. Joggers and leggings have upped their status and now you can wear them everywhere. Joggers and heels or a fancy vibe, leggings and sneakers for the daily vibe.

Princess Merida from Disney’s Brave
This Scottish Princess is not only one of the most skilled archers in the kingdom, but also outgoing and has a soft heart. Merida is a warrior princess and celebrates her curly and wild red hair. To look like her, wear a blueish-green long sleeve V-neck floor-length dress made from velvet. To create the golden ruffle behind the neckline and elbows, cut out pieces of yellow satin and add it on. Wear a leather belt and leather boots, ad bow and arrow (from a toy shop), curl your hair, and keep it wild!
Megara from Hercules
Megara, better known as Meg is a femme fatale and a truly independent woman. With this easy-to-make outfit, you could find yourself a Hercules –– or not because Meg does not need a man. Wear a maxi or a high-low dress in lavender or purple, ad greek summer sandals. Cut out circles from yellow or gold paper to make the embellishments on the shoulders.
Ginger Spice from The Spice Girls
Spice up your life this Halloween with Girl Power and a pop-star costume. Blue and red are the colors for this outfit. A tight body con dress in red or blue (if you don’t happen to have a British flag dress), plateau boots, fire red lips. Alternatively, you could wear a sports bra and track pants. You get to be the hot one, while all your friends fight over being Baby or Posh Spice.
Lola is a fiery redhead and she needs to obtain a hell of a lot of money in twenty minutes to save her boyfriend’s life. Somehow she has supernatural abilities as she is focussed and manages everything in time. Lola wears a greyish-blue tank top, long green pants, and black boots. She has a black belt where she keeps her cell phone to stay connected to her boyfriend.
This beautiful redhead from the stone age has a strong will and despite her petite appearance, she is quite capable of causing havoc when angry. She is a woman, who knows what she wants. Wear a white tunic and a belt to emphasize your femininity. Cut off one shoulder strap of your dress, as Wilma is rocking the one-shoulder look. Wear an over-sized white beaded necklace and simple shoes. You could dress up solo or as a family!
Lucy is such a classic and it’s a fabulous costume for any generation. Put on a ’50s-style polka dot dress from a vintage or thrift store or wear a collared blouse buttoned down the front to the waist and an A-line skirt. Tie a white half-apron around your waist. Wear high heels. Apply a redhead friendly pink blush on your cheeks and put on fire red lipstick. Everyone loves this peppy redhead.
Jessica is a feisty-redhead and deeply loves her husband Roger Rabbit. She is also known for the line: “I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way.” The most important part of your Jessica Rabbit costume is her long red ball gown dress that is so long it hovers just above the floor. Your Jessica Rabbit dress should have a split all the way up to the very top of your leg. Wear red high heels that match her red lipstick and purple gloves that fit all the way up the forearm. The hair? Let it flow!
Anna from Frozen
It’s time to impersonate this optimistic and caring redhead princess because Elsa is so overdone. Wear a black tank top and use fabric paint to draw out the top design. Wear a blue skirt, blue gloves and a light-blue undershirt. Black boots will do and for the cape throw a dark red or a maroon shawl over your shoulders. Add some extra freckles with a redhead friendly eyeliner pencil and braid your beautiful red hair. For the final touch: Get an Olaf plushie.’
6 Types of Sweaters to Keep You Stylish This Redhead Season
When I think of redhead season, I think of chunky sweaters, hot cups of tea, and coziness. Looking for a quick fall sweater inspiration guide? You’ve come to the right place. Keep scrolling to see 6 types of sweaters to keep you stylish this autumn:
The traditional crew neck shape lends it to be perfect for longer or stacked necklaces or for a collared shirt to peek over. The sleeves can be rolled up for a more relaxed feel and stacked bracelets for a boho look. Or it could just be a comfy sweater for leggings and messy bun day when you don’t have any work or school-related video calls.
A sweater with asymmetry adds an extra oomph to your outfit through the break of the traditional sweater shape. Two of my favorite styles that break away from the traditional sweater are the open back and the asymmetrical hemline. Asymmetrical hemlines are perfect for when you don’t quite want the standard boxy or fit sweater options. It gives the sweater a stylish loose fit that speaks on its own.
This open-back look is perfect for warmer days when you still want to achieve a fall look without having to take off the sweater halfway through the day. These types of sweaters can also come in the knotted back variety that can lend itself to an off the shoulder look while still giving that cozy oversized shoulder feel.
A turtleneck adds a subtle and simple look to any outfit. It goes well with your favorite skinny jeans, ankle boots, and statement earrings.
The oversized sweater is a staple this season. It can be styled in layers such as with a dress shirt collar sticking out or paired with your comfiest leggings.
A wrapped sweater is another subtle piece that can be dressed up or down. Try it paired with your favorite jeans or skirt.
National Chocolate Day is October 28 and it’s a day all redheads can celebrate! If you’ve read previous posts about the benefits of coconut oil for redhead skin, you will understand why we love chocolate for redhead skin too. Chocolate is made from cocoa beans, the dried and fermented seeds of the cacao tree. Cocoa beans are fiercely hydrating, much like coconut oil and shea butter. And, cacao powder offers high levels of antioxidants to help repair and protect the skin from damage.
Although my favorite form of chocolate is in a warm mug with a dash of cinnamon, my sensitive redhead skin is a huge fan of cocoa. Below are some chocolate and cocoa redhead-approved beauty favorites:
St.Ives is more well known for their exfoliants. That doesn’t mean that they don’t make incredible body lotions. This lotion uses the classic combo of chocolate and vanilla for a silky non-greasy body lotion perfect for after a warm shower.
This product brings in the reenergizing benefits of coffee and backs it up with all the effects of cocoa. The consistency is gel-like and leans more towards the chocolate than the coffee when it comes to smell.
This body spray uses the cocoa for light hydration with added scents of grapefruit and bergamot. The mix of chocolate sweet and citric bitter is the perfect scent to get you in the mood for Redhead Season.
