For many redheads, dying your hair is a big commitment. Many natural redheads have a hard time enhancing their locks, some natural redheads want to go back to vibrancy and for redhead ‘choice’, it can be constant trips to the salon. Red hair grows quickly and natural red roots take a lot of time, money and upkeep to cover. But, that doesn’t mean we don’t have the desire to change up our look every once in a while.
