Bright hair dyes - December 22nd 2014, 07:43 PM

I now have have red hair, it's in this colour:

It's actually a little redder/brighter in real life than on the box which is odd as they're normally darker in real life.

I'm thinking of dying it purple next. Thing is, bright dyes fade REALLY quickly. I use shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair which does help the fading but it's still fades too quickly.

I like manic panic colours but they're semi-permanent so they will fade even quicker >.>

I try not to wash my hair too much (I now wash it twice a week) and use dry shampoo a lot. I know that sounds gross but since I've been washing it less the less greasy it has become.

What else could I do to make the colour last longer? I'm sick of it fading into a icky coppery colour. Obviously I could just dye it more but that can't be good for my hair :|

Yeah, my hairdresser told me that reds and other colors do fade really fast, and I know my friend had a purple hair color and she got tired of dying it all the time and how the purple seemed to get on everything. I had red highlights before and they did fade quickly.

I've heard that picking a good, professional-type dye can help, as well as deep conditioning your hair before dyeing. I've also heard that they sell glosses that are supposed to make the color last longer. I read that heat from things like hot water, blow driers and flat irons can also make the color fade faster, so you may want to avoid that when you wash your hair.

I don't know how useful any of these things are but I did a bit of research and some of them such as the gloss did pop up a lot.

Thanks I actually just washed my hair with cool water instead of hot water, didn't feel too great but hopefully it'll help
