Best Permanent Red Hair Dye

post #1 of 65
Thread Starter 
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.

Like that?

Mine's not red brown, it's RED. Fire engine flaming bright stop light oh my god did you see her hair RED.
If you're looking for something like that, Garnier Nutrisse Hot Tamale.

Re: Best Permanent Red Hair Dye

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

Re: Best Permanent Red Hair Dye

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 "boost" dye that you mix into the haircolor bottle with the other stuff. Love it.

Hope this link works: Skincare, cosmetics, haircare, haircolor, hair styling and men's line : L'Oréal Paris

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.)

Re: Best Permanent Red Hair Dye

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:
