So, I just dyed my hair red, and want to keep it as long as I can (I know red fades fast). I asked my hairdresser about shampoos, and she told me anything that said color-safe was good. Is there a shampoo that is color-safe and will help keep the red from fading as fast?<br><br>
Mods, if this is in the wrong place feel free to move it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I've used Herbal Essences for coloured hair and the John Frieda Radiant Red's stuff. They're pretty good. I find the John Frieda to be better.

I like yes to cucumbers. I have dyed red hair too and it does fade super fast.

I used to use reincarnate from Lush but I dyed my hair black recently and that is much easier to manage. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

<span>To help maintain color, I used to water down my shampoo so I would use as little as possible. It's also a good idea to use a UV protectant spray to help reduce fading by the sun.<br><br>
Depending on how bright red it is, you might consider making a tinted shampoo with a semi-permanent dye like Manic Panic or Special Effects. Manic Panic has several red shades that could work for this. Back in the days of bright hair, I would mix a couple of tablespoons of dye with some cheap deep conditioner. Let it sit on your hair for 5ish minutes and rinse out.<br></span>

So glad someone asked about this!! My hair is dyed red, and I'm about to go to a burgundy-purple, mostly because red does fade SO quickly, and also because burgundy-purple sounds like tons of fun!! Before I started dyeing, I used very gentle, diluted solutions of water-and-baking-soda and water-and-vinegar to wash and condition my hair, respectively, and this kept my hair so unbelievably healthy and soft. But I recently realized that the color-safe products I purchased from my salon are not veg-friendly (I wish I'd been more vigilant about this from the start <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">), and reading this thread has sparked my interest in the "Yes To" brand. Veg*n hair products typically freak me out because I haven't found any that wash and condition as well as mainstream and salon products. Maybe I'll skim through this forum and see how much info there is on the "Yes To" shampoos and conditioners...

Another option is not washing your hair so frequently. When it gets greasy you can use the dry shampoos. They work really well. You just apply them at the roots and it rubs right in. And there's also washing your hair in cold water because it does not open up the follicle so the color isn't escaping. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
