Colorist Tips
10 Tips To Keep Your

Red Hair Vibrant
Rich red hair color
Red, copper, strawberry, oh my! Shades of red can be deep and rich,


or they can go soft and understated—but they all seem to come out
pretty

quickly in the wash. While the picky pigments in reds require
a little extra

upkeep, these top tips from our color pros will keep
reds happy and

vibrant between applications.
01 INGREDIENTS MATTER
Always opt for shampoos, conditioners, and stylers that are labeled “safe for color-treated hair.” These products are formulated without sulfates and parabens, which could fade color or bring out unwanted, brassy tones.
02 SKIP THE SUDS
True story: Water dulls hair color, especially reds. Hold onto your pigment by shampooing as little as possible, and getting a good dry shampoo for the off days. Ours (Without A Trace) has panthenol and vitamin E, so it can cleanse hair without drying it out.
03 CHILL OUT
When you do suds up, give just-conditioned hair a nice cold rinse to seal the cuticle and preserve your color. While some folks disagree on this one, we're decidedly pro. Added bonus? A spritz under cold water and you'll feel more alive than ever—promise.
04 DEEP CONDITION
It's no secret that healthy hair means better color, and this is especially true for reds. Get ahead of process-worn locks with a moisturizing deep conditioner like Deeply Invested the day before your color application, and once a week thereafter.
05 STICK TO YOUR ROOTS
Applying hair color over previously colored hair can cause over-processing, over-darkening, or uneven results. So keep touch-ups strictly to regrowth, and avoid overlapping.

06 ADD BACK PIGMENT
Look alive between color applications with an enhancing treatment like Tinted Love or Devoted To Hue—the colorist secret weapon here at eSalon. Each is available in a range of shades, so you can target your treatment and prevent the fading that can happen over time.
07 REFRESH REGULARLY
Because of the nature of red pigments, redheads need an all-over color boost more often than their blonde or brunette counterparts. So for consistently rich, even color from root to tip, be sure to keep those color refreshes regular.
08 WEAR A HAT
The sun is another serious culprit in the case of dulling color. Extend the life of your shade (and protect yourself from UV rays) by covering up whenever you hit the great outdoors.
09 CONDITION TO SWIM
Between dried-out strands and altered tones, pool water can be color kryptonite. You can avoid over-chlorination by wetting hair with tap water and adding just a tad of conditioner before you take a dip. Better yet? Try a swim cap.
10 PROTECT AND SHINE
Did we mention that sun fades color? Because it really, really does. Put your best red forward with a daily leave-in conditioner that also has UV protectant properties. Perfect Ending has that, and it lets you get your shine on. #Win.
