The challenge most red heads encounter is maintaining the hue you adore appearing as fresh and vibrant as possible for as long as possible.

Here are tips for maintaining your red hair:

Make sure you stay out of the sun. Everything fades under UV light. When you need to go outside, make sure you wear a hat!

Do not shampoo as often. Because of the larger dye molecules in red hair color, which are more difficult to stay in the hair, shampooing is an especially bad idea if you want to avoid premature color loss. Decide to reconsider your shampoo routine.

Avoid thermal hair styling tools. It can cause your color to fade severely! Use the lowest heat setting possible for your hair type on your irons and dryers.

Trust a professional with your hair color. You can't go wrong with a professional to create and maintain your red hair color. It is likely that he or she will have the ability to create a shade of red hair that complements your skin tone and eye color. To avoid causing further harm to your hair, they will use demi-permanent or semi-permanent hair dyes that contain little or no ammonia, so you won't have to worry about that.

Regularly apply hair masks to keep your hair looking its best. Hair masks are an excellent source of moisture for hair and will help you keep a deep, rich red color. Try to use a hair mask at least twice a week, depending on the state of your hair. You can use the hair mask every time you shampoo if your hair is really dry or damaged.
