How To Get Radiant Red Hair Without Pre-lightening For Dark Brown Hair
How to get bright/radiant red hair without pre-lightening....
I recently wanted bright red hair, but had a level 4 dark brown hair. I refused to use bleach to pre-lighten. So I found Loreal Hicolor Highlights hair color. Lifts and deposits color without the devastating damage that bleach causes.
This is what the box looks like
I used Loreal Hicolor Highlights in "Magenta" and "Red". I mixed half of each tube with 40 volume developer.
On the side of the box you will find the mixing ratios.
If your hair is long and thick you'll want at least 2-4 tubes of color. I'd recommend 4. Better to have extra and not need it then need extra and not have it.
Before you begin cover your work area with dark towels, and wear clothes that aren't important. This stuff will stain!
I pulled the color through my ends first, let sit for 30 minutes, then quickly applied it to the roots in the last 5 minutes. If you do not do it this way you WILL end up with "hot roots".
I left the color on for 35 minutes and washed.
