For the last couple of months I’ve been a red head. A fake red head but none the less, very red. I went from a brown to blonde ombre to bright red in two steps.

First I bleached the lot with a home dye kit. Needless to say this did not bring out a gorgeous blonde bombshell, rather a yellow reminiscent of an egg yolk. So in a spur of the moment/mild panic, I bought a bright red to cover.
It was the brightest I’d ever been, but it looked fab. But although lush to look at once first dyed, it fades fast. Three weeks later I had a red/orange with a peachy ombre tip. Pretty, but not ideal. So I re-dyed in red again and its still looking rather good two weeks later.

So here’s some hints and tips for maintaining dyed red hair.
Remember, red hair is one of the hardest colours to maintain in hair. It is likely to turn orange without lots of maintenance.
And a professional hair colour is going to last longer than a home dye kit.
Have you ever dyed your hair a bright colour?

As a mother who loves to travel, I’d love to take Henry on a trip to Disneyland Paris someday. The trip won’t be cheap, but I’ve learned that I can buy or rent a Disney Vacation Club timeshare on the DVC Resale Market at a steeply discounted price.
