Srsly. I'm auburn! or in South Park terms, a Daywalker...

It's beautiful! as is yours cus dyed red hair = fit as (:
And who doesn't want to be like grandpa (yours or mine, they both sound cool)
Is it long and flowing? :w i know grandpa is awesome. My other grandad (not satan) looks like santa. Used to say he was santa's brother. However, if you would like to carry this conversation about auburn hair on, pm me or write on the wall thingy as im sure we're annoying OP :P

For red go for Schwarzkopf XXL Live. It's really good for non bleached hair - and it really lasts. I'm currently on Cosmic Blue - Really nice black colour with a blue tint. I love it, and it's really easy to use.

Satans my grandad.
Ah, that explains your username then. Just to clarify, so your sent out by Granddaddy to kill people, rip out their hearts and bring them back to him in a jar as proof? Sounds faintly familiar...

if you wash your hair with fairy liquid it dulls the hair dye enough that you should be able to dye over it easily
if it doesn't fade straight away either keep using the fairy liquid or leave it in for a bit

Speaking as a person with red hair similar to the colour of the picture I know it is difficult to get the red exetly right. I had to dye it at least 5 times before it went the colour I wanted! There is a new colour stripper called "Colour B4" available now that is much less harmful than bleaching. I would suggest using this opposed to bleach!

I did a home job, and it turned out pretty good!!! if i say so myself lol

You dont have to bleach it with like pure pure bleach, but what i did was i took a really light blonde (ash blonde) becasue I have dark brown hair originally...

right yeh so I dyed it first wth the ash blonde, then I got a "cherry something red" cant remeber full name . but anyway it turned out lighter than the picture model... but yeh loved it... the roots have started to show now though...but nice while it lasted..might do it agian after exams have finished, just too stressed to be thinking about these things lol


anyway hope that helped

The problem with red is that after two weeks it looks waaaaaay worse! This girls hair is amazing at the pic but I doubt they would be like that ten days later
That's what I hate about my red hair

That's the one thing I'm going to hate about this. When I dye mine dark brown I can leave it for months really! Even with regrowth. People think it's natural haha oh how I wish! I'm lazy about hair, I get it cut like once a year.....so this going red thing will probably change me, or aggravate me

I went from darkbrown to red on my own. No bleach or anything.
I didnt go to the hairdressers because every time they did my red in the past it faded really quick.

I got colour XXL red passion i think it was called, put it on for the time it said and it came out a tiny bit darker than that. But then I dyed it again and it came out brighter like in that picture. I duno about the roots... mines are a light brown, and they don't look different to the rest of my hair once i've dyed over them. I've had red hair since like 2009 now haha. Reminds me to buy some more dye...
Oh your hair looks perfect in that pic. I have the same problem, when I go to the hairdressers (always) it fades so quickly. I thought it was the colour but your post made me doubt it.
Ok so this dye XXL red passion, where can I buy it from? Also when you say you dyed it again you mean straight away or the next time? How long does the colour last?
My roots are also brown (not light but not that dark either) do I have to dye them first and leave the dye for longer than the rest of the hair? I've never dyed my hair on my own... Is it easy or do I need a friend?

No problem

anyway yes it would work, because dyed or natural, its the same colour, so it would bleach the first colour, this would give you a honey blonde, then after that you dye it red, this will give you a really nice cherry colour

btw i use loreal hair dye, i personally think they work the best.

hope that helps
