I love being a RED HEAD! NEW COLOR ALERT!!!
I found my signature color (I think)! My roots were looking crazy since my hair grows super fast and I'm about to go to Mexico (YIPPEEE), so I decided to freshen up my color. So I really liked my color but I wanted to go for a richer light red color. So I opted not to use Textures & Tones in Bronze again (nothing wrong with product), because the color didn't lift my natural hair color enough. So I went to Sally's Beauty Supply and decided to get creative and mix some colors. I decided to get two colors by Clairol Professional Premium Creme colors in Light Reddest Brown (4RR) and Light Red-Neutral Blonde (8RN). I used the matching Clairol Creme Developer in Level 30. I washed my hair with a tea tree shampoo and then applied the color with a brush and let it processed for 30 minutes. I then applied a deep conditioner, put in the Knot Today leave in/detangler and blew out my hair and VOILA! I LOVE the color. It's perfect for Mexico and even the transition into the fall and winter months. Next time I will probably only use a level 20 developer because my roots are super bright. The only down side to this color is that I feel like my hair was a bit drier compared to when I used Textures & Tones. Enjoy the pictures!
