How to Maintain Redhead Hair Color

Red hair color may require commitment, but with proper maintenance, it can be easier to keep looking great for longer. Here are a few tips to prevent looking brassy or losing its vibrancy too quickly:


Redheads tend to produce more pheomelanin than eumelanin, resulting in lighter skin and often freckles. They also have pale complexions.

Dark Auburn

Dark brown hair color is an eye-catching hue that works beautifully on all skin tones. It can vary from bronzy copper to burgundy hues. It’s a great way to incorporate more red without committing to bold red locks full-time.


Auburn hair color is versatile, with rich copper tones like strawberry, rust, chestnut, and caramel blonde hues. L’Oreal Paris Le Color Gloss One Step In-Shower Toning Gloss in Auburn can be used for added shine management and faded red hair management.

Cherry Cola

This dark cherry red hue provides an earthy violet brunette tone. It looks great on dark brunettes, black locks, and virgin dark hair. Pair it with an edgy pixie cut for a red-hot style.

Balayage Technique

To achieve a stunning, rich hue, the balayage technique is used. Roots are lightened while mid-lengths and ends are kept dark. Cherry red highlights are hand-painted for a natural finish. Use quality haircare products like Dove Amplified Textures Shine
