Red Hair Dye. - September 26th 2012, 09:53 PM

I've tried dying my hair red numerous times and it's not working! I have a darkish-medium brown hair color, and I want it to be reddish brown, but definitely noticably red. I want it to be red mostly, but a darker red. All the times I've tried, it's hardly made any difference at all. Any suggestions?

When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.

Garnier Nutrisse makes a dye that's specifically for darker hair and I've used it and it actually worked pretty well. Click Here for more information.

And here you are living, despite it all.

What kind of hair dying products have you tried? The garnier ones are good, as said above by Nicole. You could try pre-lightening your hair first? But if you do that id suggest going to an experienced hair dresser who knows what they are doing.

From personal experience the best way to get a nice good red in your hair is to bleach it and then dye it red, it tends to be closer to the color you were expecting then. However if you don't want to bleach your hair, a bunch of semi permanent hair dyes should go over top and show up nicely. My favorite brand is special effects.

I have a website dedicated to tips on semi permanent hair dye and how to get good results should you choose that path, I encourage you look at it : sweb2.dmit.nait.ca/nfindling1/semi-permanent-hair-dye/
