Red Hair Coloring is one of my favorite to do. For me it is relatively easy to take care of and easy to change. If you are going to wear it doing the summer time make sure to go to the salon at least every two weeks for a color wash to refresh the tone and add shine. Also make sure you use the right styling products and the right temperatures with your blow dryer, flat-iron and also curling iron. Washing the hair every other day will also help to hold in the tone and using dry shampoos will be great for in between shampoo’s.
The artificial hair color I used was from KIN. The client has 100% grey hair and her density is thick and also fine hair. When I do the hair coloring, I use 25% – 6NN and also a level 6 Red Orange with about 3-4 inches of a level 5 Gold. With a 20 volume developer. A timer is set for 60 minutes. theN a level 7RR is placed on the shaft and ends of the hair. Which is a demi-permanent formula. The hair is washed clean styled and off she goes. This client comes to me for treatments to the hair color every 2-3 weeks. She is an actress and needs it right for her profession or modelling photo-shoots.
After her hair coloring service I went ahead and did a FAST BLOW DRY from GK. My models hair is also wavy and frizz’s up in the summer humidity here in Orlando. This helps her out a lot.

Clients will always ask me if they need to wash their hair before they come in for a hair color service. And I am not talking about cement, mud on the hair and scalp. The answer is no. Hair color, perms, highlights, are all chemical services that are done in the salon and only in the salon. A buildup of oils, dirts in the hair will not be able to overcome the chemical strength of hair color or bleaches, or perms. They will not alter the chemical process of lifting or altering the hair structure of the chemicals being used in the service. in fact when clients come in to have a hair color service and the hair is wet the only thing that will cause a problem is the time spent blow drying the hair to proceed with the hair coloring service. And that is a fact Jack! Dirty hair (second day, third day is fine) makes it easier for the colorist to place foils in your hair. The natural oils also help protect your scalp from possible irritation the color could cause. Hair color is stronger than oils, and dandruff, dirty hair. etc.. Hair is a chemical and I have seen it clear off the scalp of and all natural oils and day to day grease and grime.
*EXCEPTION – The only exception to NEVER shampoo rule is chlorine. If you go swimming in a chlorinated pool the day of your color appointment, you must shampoo the chlorine out or there could be some funky results when the color reacts with the chlorine!
