It used to be that women having read hair were considered as "gingers." Just as elegant and popular as blondes and brunettes, superstars such like Julianne Moore and Nicole Kidman have proven that redheads can be similarly sexy. Knowing this, they sure must have been taking care of their crimson crown of glory. Not only your hair, but your appearance also reflects how you are taking care of your red hair.
Red hair is by far the hardest hair color to maintain, whether it is natural or "enhanced." You need a good shampoo. You can opt to use moisturizers, shampoos and conditioners with a sunscreen formula to protect your hair against too much radiation, which could be from the sun or any other environmentally radioactive elements.
Red hair slowly turns darker over a period of time. Therefore, choose products which naturally brighten your hair to keep a vibrant shade longer, or until your next contract for being in a movie.
You should avoid dyeing your hair too many times or using harsh chemical treatments, as they could severely damage your hair. Come on, you love your red hair, so stick to the plan. Also, touching your hair a lot can result to a frizzy style. That was okay in the 80's because that was the fad of that decade, but we are not living in the past.
Probably, the John Frieda range is the best brand, but the truth is, there is really a small difference between the brand ones and the cheaper versions.
Here is another related beauty tip because this shows you really take care not only of your red hair, but also of yourself. Sometimes caring for your hair is treating the symptoms, not the problems behind it. Focus on your scalp and your face. If you are a typical redhead, you do possess a very pale skin and whether you like it or not, may have many undesirable freckles. Be sure to coordinate your make-up with your hair. I bet stylists can help you on this one.
To end, you must remember what Wolf of Beverly Hills' Jim Wayne Salon said, "Red hair is coveted because it's the least common in natural hair color." Basics such as finding the right shampoo, right products, and staying out of the sun are the likes of it. Whether you are trying to be a redhead or you are that lucky redhead from England, same applies for taking care of your hair.
