    I've recently had my hair dyed quite a bright cherry red but havent been able to find the same colour in a box dye (i had it done at the salon) im at uni so wont be able to go home and get it re-done as often as i'd like (unless i manage to find a cheap salon with the same colour) so i was wondering if anyone could suggest any really good colour protecting products like shampoo/conditioner/etc as red tends to fade out very very quick.

    Or if anyone knows of some good red hair dyes, XXL reds seem to fade out within a week and all the other hair dyes are too "natural"

    XXL have stared a new line called ultra brights and have a very bright red.

    As for colour protect im not sure. Because im blonde so always use purple shampoo.

    However you could try the john fredia range that targets specific hair colours.

    Or buy a bright red vegetable dye. Mix it in with a bit of conditioner once a week and leave it on for half an hour to keep up the colour til your roots come through

    *All red dyes fade quickly. Quickest to fade hardest to emlinate from your hair.

    The ultra brights is only semi permanent which is a bugger but i;ve found an XXL one close to my colour so i'll just have to get used to the fade :P

    John freida might be worth a go actually usually good thanks for the idea

    I dye my hair red at home using Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Colour: Vibrant Red and for hair products I buy Tresemme colour protect shampoo and conditioner - really good value as you can buy them in 900ml bottles. I don't notice any fade between my 4/5 weekly colourings, only the blonde roots.
