• How To – Red Hair

    Not one to back away from some good old fashioned hair experimentation, sometimes what I crave is a more subtle shift.

    So, although I haven’t quite embraced Jessica Rabbit-red, I have dipped my strands into the red family for a change from my usual honey ends and chocolate roots.

    For soft undertones of mahogany and cheeky red reflects I like to use a colour deposit hair treatment when an air of rouge takes my fancy to bring out green eyes and flatter my olive skin tone.

    What is a colour deposit treatment?  Less tailored than a professional colour service from your salon, a colour deposit hair treatment is a take-home retail product that you can apply yourself without too much expertise required.

    Whether it be a semi-permanent wash out colour or a toner from your salon, a colour deposit treatment is nice for in-between salon visits or for a subtle change.

    I like…. Revlon Professional Nutri Color Creme, Shu Uemura Color Lustre Shades Reviving Balm, Pureology Reviving Red Reflect Enhancer in Red

    Tip:  Purple shampoos aren’t just for blondes!  Brunettes can also use a purple shampoo to add red reflects and counteract brassy tones.  I like to use L’Oréal Professionnel Série Expert So Silver shampoo every third or so wash to add shine and subtle colour.


    Have you ever used colour deposit treatments?  Would you ever go red?

      Reds certainly do! I loved my hair when it was (dyed) red 🙂 Please check out my blog. I have recently done a skin care series and posted my fifth and final instalment. It approaches skincare scientifically and you will learn about your skin type, common skin dilemmas, how to develop a routine for you, skin anatomy and my personal favourite all about those common fancy active ingredients you hear about in skincare. Follow and I will be sure to share the love around xox your local bohemian
