Have you ever dyed your hair red? What was your experience?

I did once, and liked the look, but other people either liked it a lot or not at all.

My hair wouldn't hold the color ~

  • I can spot fake red hair a mile away. Sorry, but I think it only looks good on natural reds! And it is THE most beautiful hair color ever!

  • When I get my hair colored, I do a two color weave, red and blonde. If you go to someone that knows what they are doing, and choose the right shade, your hair doesn't turn orange when it fades. I have been having my hair in this color scheme for 8 years, and have never had a problem.

  • I have red hair and wanted a brighter color red so I dyed it. Guess what... it turned purple! It was the day before picture day my sophomore year of high school. I was mortified!

  • I tried to...but I foolishly let DH do it because he swore up and down that he knew what he was doing. He didnt. It turned bright pink lol...after a couple of days I got used to it and actually started liking it, I kept my hair pink until I found out I was pregnant...I may even go back to it once the baby is born lol

  • I have dyed it auburn, burgundy and cranberry. Not all at the same time of course. The only thing I don't like about red is it does seem to fade easily.
