How Do I Enhance My Fading Natural Red Hair?
Asked Oct 8, 2007, 08:04 AM
I was born with a beautiful red blond hair and huge beautiful deep-set dark brown doe eyes,my hair was much redder than strawberry blonde as a baby and child,but as a teenager it got a somewhat darker red golden shade. I always got compliments on my hair color from everyone including all of the hairdressers from the age of 12 when I started to go to a professional hairdresser through my teens and 20's they always said what a beautiful uniuque red shade it was.
But now at age 42 my hair is more like a blondish brownish with a little reddish tint left in it! The red started to fade after the age of 30, in the pictures taken ouside in the sunlight on my 30th birthday,my hair was still red! I recently started to color my hair with the semi-permanent Clariol Natural Instincts Spiced Tea color,but it's too orange for the first week,and I have to wash my hair with regular soap to get a little of the color out to tone it down some. Two people noticed soon after I colored my hair,a young woman who works in a drug store asked me if I colored my hair,she said it looks really good with my skin coloring,and my optician said my hair looks lovely and asked me if I colored it and she said it looks very good with my skin complexion. I don't have the typical cool undertone that blondes have, I have light skin,and a warm undertone,I never had freckles though. I was wondering if you or anyone else knows about a color enhancing shampoo that could enhance what redddish color I have left? I wanted to use Henna for red hair but no stores around me have it! I really want my beautiful natural red hair back!
On the wikipedia the free online encyclopedia,and on other sites by redheads,it says natural red hair often turns blonde or brown as people get older, some say a sandy blonde,another site that had an article Little Known Facts About Redheads,said that red hair lasts the longest of all other hair colors,but that it doesn't turn grey it it turns a sandy blonde then white. I wonder what age group does it start to change color and did mine fade too early?
