Hair coloursHot Chilli is slightly oranger, Red Corvette slightly darker/browner (I want red tending to brown/orange not red tending towards purple)My hair is normally darkish brown but gets gingery highlights in the sun. Warmish/yellowish/olive complexion. I'll dye it when I get back from holiday so I should have a bit of a tan.What do you think?
No-one wants to make me dye my hair red?
I wish we could do polls... everyone likes to take a poll.Can I ask why? Is it just a better name?
I think because you are tending towards ginger / copper and you'll have a tan. I'm not a big fan of mahogany/ purples either. Im impressed with your preplanning and ability to wait RE hair dying. I make stupid hair dying mistakes because I am rather impetuous and want change NOW. Of course now I've revealed my lack of hair colour choosing credentials.
To get the good stuff I have to order off Amazon anyway so it can't be TOO impulsive
Any Saturday hair-dyers want to add their opinions?
I'm getting Hot Chilli. I thought I would update my one advisor
Have you used these before? And where are the pics of real hair?! How can you order hair dye based on those little squares? I think you're very brave (or mad)
Oh thank god! I've been thinking about your hair a lot Are we going to get photos?! It is quite vibrant dye. Do you regularly do it and does someone help you?
Dd used red corvette on her red hair in the summer. It looked fab- but washed out very quickly.
No I don't do it regularly at all. Just doing this on a whim. It'll wash out after a number of washes, if I don't like it I'll just wash it a lot.In the past my hair has been fairly reluctant to take up dye so I doubt it will come out anywhere near as vibrant as in the pictures, especially since I don't intend on bleaching it first.
Well I'm glad you followed my advice anyway.
The pics of "real hair" on the box of a box of hair dye are not real anyway.
Dd's lasted about 3 washes -and ds's blue lasted one wash and one swim in the sea. Expensive for what you get, I think!
I'm doing it now!Didn't do it straight after getting back from holiday because I am vain and wanted people to notice my tan - if I had come into work with red hair that would have been a bit distracting!It does say 3-30 washes, so we'll see what kind of hair I have
