I know how fun being a fake redhead can be for a lot of women (and men too). It can really make you stand out in a crowd. Clients often ask me about caring for hair that's been dyed red so let's chat about that, If you spend the money to look ravishingly red, you should get a shampoo that is sulfate-free. You can also look for shampoos specially made for red hair with red dye in them, There are so many shades of red hair dye today. They range from orange to plummy. But you can also have red with highlights, dark or blonde with red, red hair with brown highlights, or just about any combination you can think of, you obviously don't want to go with an orange-red dye. So skin tone is definitely going to play a role. African-Americans often look fabulous with the plummy reds but again, it depends on skin tone.
