When it comes to dying your hair nothing says more than a firey natural redhead! Natural red hair dye from EarthDye does more than that. It is the one way a woman gets more attention than any other woman- ever! Living with a redhead for 13 years I can attest she did just that. The most mystical shade of red is the red hair dye! And has been for thousands of years. If you want to stick out in the crowd and put the blonds in the dust, go red.
Red hair color, in fact, goes back thousands of years and is still the rarest hair color on the planet. Our red tones show up much better on lighter colored hair, black hair hardly at all. It also works very well on highlights. If your hair is light brown you can create awesome auburn colors very similar to Christina Hendricks.
Mix Any Color
The wonderful thing is you can mix any of our colors to create even more colors! The possibilities are endless, just remember what matters is what color you start with. The darker your hair the brighter or deeper the red you will need. If you have light-colored hair and want a reddish-brown, then you might want to turn your attention to mahogany. Mahogany is dark brown with red high lights and very close to our dark brown. If you want to dye your hair more of a Julianne Moore copper brown, then you will need copper-top, a darker auburn on medium color hair. If your hair is lighter just mix in some brown for a deeper natural copper-red.
So many people are bamboozled about skin tone, the fact of the matter is natural hair color does not have a lot do with the color of your skin, not what makes a woman or man look great anyway. Facial features and the contour is what matters most. Take Emma Stone, for example, she can dye her a medium brown and look just as good as a strawberry blond shade. Emma has the ultimate facial features to get away with any hair color, even black or blonde. We must admit she would great with just a shower cap on!
A great way to decide what color looks best on you is to ask a friend, or use an app that will change the color of your hair to see examples. Some apps are better than others, but one that is good to use is Fabby Look, it is uncomplicated to use and you can see the results quickly. Friends also tell the truth, so many people are told they have great looking hair only because the people looking at them feel sorry for them, giving them false hope that the color they have is awesome!
Sometimes friends will also give bad feedback after all beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you want an unbiased opinion, post on our forum or send us an email with a picture and we will give you the honest truth. We have been helping men and women pick hair colors for 14 years and have not gone wrong yet! Sometimes we might get a little bit stumped, but we always prevail. Contact us for an honest answer!
What Shade is Best For You?
We all understand redheads really have more fun, so do not beat yourself up too much on this one! If you have darker colored hair you have fewer options than the mere blond. But you can certainly give any darker colors a red hue and stand out in the sunshine as the sun lights up the red highlights in your hair. If you have light-colored hair have fun with different shades, starting lighter and working your way up. Just remember it is hard to go lighter without the use of chemicals. If you have brown hair you are limited to natural red, burgundy, deep red, or mahogany.
If you have white hair the sky is the limit! Finally, silvers have the advantage! If you are really brave and have white hair you can shampoo with Grand Pas Pine Soap and then apply strawberry blond to create a rose gold strawberry blond effect. We do not know how or why, but very grateful Ray shared this with us as his beard matched his natural hair color exactly! Thank you, Ray!
Hair Color Trend
We are seeing more and more women executing the super bright red hair dye and cannot express how terribly bad this is for you and your hair if you are using chemical hair dyes. I see super damaged hair all the time from bright colors and it is amazing that people think it looks great when their hair is frizzed and dried out with split ends. Think about what you are doing to your hair and your body (not to mention the environment) when using bright chemical hair dyes.
I never knew the severity of it until a customer named Dane called and said the reason he went “natural is that two women he worked with decided to use toxic red on the hair and it killed both of them. I do not know if the story is true, but I can tell you I talk to a lot of people that have gotten sick from using chemical hair dye on a daily basis and it is flat out frightening, Go natural and spare your hair! Redheads flat out get more attention, so make sure you are ready to take that on and especially the significant other because you will draw attention in a major way.
EarthDye works on all hair types. Mix with any color to create more colors.
