    Best Permanent Red Hair Dye

    What do you all think the best red permanent hair dye is? Please include brand and colors if you can! I have been using Natural Instincts in Rosewood and I haven't been terribly happy with it. It tints my hair red (my natural hair color is dark brown), but it only shows up bright in the sun. I want an obnoxiously bright dark red color and I am ready to try permanent hair dye. Any recommendations? Thanks!

    Re: Best Permanent Red Hair Dye

    Sadly I do not have access to a Sally's and I don't have the training to do that type of dye. The problem with Garnier is that they don't have a dark bright red, they only have a light bright red. Any other suggestions would be appreciated! Thank you!

    I am looking for a medium to dark bright red. No red-browns, just red. Bright and obnoxious is prefered, but not required. I want something like Natural Insticts Maylasian Cherry or brighter in permanent hair dye form.

    If you're looking for something like that, Garnier Nutrisse Hot Tamale.

    I will definitely be taking that recommendation in the future, Shimmer. I'm always on the look out for that sort of red. =)

    I've been using Loreal Feria for years and years. I use any of the ones that say intense red or something like that, on the box. It comes with a little tube of blood red &quot;boost&quot; dye that you mix into the haircolor bottle with the other stuff. Love it.

    That is just about perfect! It's a little light, the dye won't lighten my hair to that color. I will try either Hot Tamale or Pomegrante! Thank you so much!

    Re: Best Permanent Red Hair Dye

    Garnier's reds are RED. I sort of wish I hadn't colored my hair this weekend, or I'd be checking them out, too. (Willing my hair to grow out.)

    I can't seem to find it in anymore, but years ago Clairol's Herbal Essences (not Natural Instincts) made my brown hair a true, bright red with no orange or burgundy tones. Granted, I also put Manic Panic's Pillarbox Red over the top. (Oh the memories of waking up to stained pillowcases.)

    Garnier has great reds. No. 660 is a great intense Red-auburn. Try the 100% line - those are no-shit intense colors.

    Re: Best Permanent Red Hair Dye

    Not sure about their red choices but L'Oreal Superior Prefrence is amazing. The only dye that hasn't faded/washed out, lasts almost or exactly two months for me. I've heard red is a color that's hard to maintain, what shampoo do you use?

    Re: Best Permanent Red Hair Dye

    i use dikson meches impulse colour in rosso red (fuscia red) but i dont know how easy it is to find. i get it from a salon supplier and i mix it 1 part dye 2 parts peroxide 30 volume. like shimmer, its a ridiculous bright shade of red when its fresh and then it fades to a lovely dark red. i had dark dark brown almost black hair with lighter streaks. so it depends on what your hair is now and if u are going to bleach or not.

    I've been usually Perfect 10 in Ginger in a Snap. I love the color, but it does fade quite quickly.

    I've always heard a sulfate-free shampoo is the way to go.

    I have a really hard time getting red to last more than a few days before major fading, so I just ordered some nice shampoo and am going to redye and see exactly how well that holds true. Either way, sulfate-free is just a lot nicer on your hair!

    Going back to Natural Instincts for a moment, I've used shades in the warm/golden family in the past, Pecan to be exact, and got a nice, deep auburn.

    Reading some of the MUA reviews, a lot of people aren't too happy with how red some of the shades come out, especially the darker ones, but I like red hair on me, so I was okay with it.

    Has anyone with dark hair used Spiced Tea or Cinnaberry? I'm sitting on a box of Cinnaberry at the moment, but wonder if Spiced Tea would be a better shade.

    L'Oreal - Excellence - L'Oreal Excellence HiColor Red

    Don't be afraid of mixing your own dye! This stuff is the best, esp if u have dark brown hair! All you need to do is buy a dye bottle, the color, a bottle of developer-20v lifts 2 shades(most store kits give u this which is why alot of girls get brassy)30v lifts 3 shades ect...you should use l'oreals oreor developer with this dye, and then I always purchase a packette of deep conditioner to use afterwards just like the drugstore kits give you. I don't have red hair but I use this brands beige dark blonde shade and I love it.

    Best hair dye ever is: Féria by L'Oréal,
    I use the Ruby Rush color and never in my life have I been complemented so much on my hair! I have had professional salon stylists tell me I have THE BEST hair and color they have seen and I do it in my kitchen sink for around 12$ if I can get my dye on sale. I have naturally light brown hair but the cool thing about this dye was it dyed right over light black hair! I seriously recommend this brand of dye to anybody who wants sexy bright red hair!

    Could anyone recommend a dye that will achieve this colour? Obviously it's a red/combination of reds from the Majirouge range, so if anyone could pin point the exact colours, that would be great!

    I noticed that Garnier Nutrisse has been mentioned a few times, but if you are looking for a bright red, you need to make sure you buy the Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Colors (they are labeled as being made for dark hair). I believe they have three different shades. I use R3 which is the brightest. It HONESTLY barely fades. The only reason I need to dye my hair again is because my roots start to show. I love this color!!

    Link to the color:

    Pic of the color on me for reference:


    Hope that helped!
    This is the end... beautiful friends.
