    Out Of All The Colors

    I liked having red hair the most. I will dye it red again when my hair grows back. [shaved all of my hair off in august] I am looking forward to having that color again.

    ends and underneath. I think red hair can easily make you look like a clown

    Awesome Turn Out!

    I was a dirty blonde. Over the summer I went to a golden blonde using Sun-In. My roots started to grow in and the fact that I dyed my hair started to spread around school. In my school, at least, dying your hair is not cool, it's stupid. I decided to go againist what everyone...

    Love It.

    The first time I did it was in 9th grade. I was starting to become rebellious by nature and also more independent and individual in my thoughts. I took a can of colour mousse and sprayed the whole lot onto my hair (very badly), but I was very happy with my red hair.The second...

    Last time I dyed my hair red it was a spur of

    the moment decision and I hadn't done my research and it was gone in a month because I didn't take proper care of it.. Went back to blonde and damaged it a lot in the process. Well I decided I look best as a redhead so I decided to do my homework this time. I dyed it myself with...

    I dyed my hair bright red,

    and then added a bit of blue, it began turning purplish in the middle and finally the tips are blue berry, it's a little dark, but it looks amazing and I feel very happy! Before I was a ginger. :3

    A Redhead On The Inside

    I've been a strawberry blonde fading to a blah mousy dark blonde as I got older. I udually wear my hair platinum or light blonde but this time tried dark auburn red and I love it. It goes with my skin and green eyes. I've gotten mixed reviews, men at work, even ones I dont...

    I'm Redhead Now (at Least I Am Temporarily).

     I got bored during my Winter Break and got my sister to dye my hair red. It's semi-permanent, so it'll wash out in a month or so. I've only ever dyed my hair brown before (it's naturally darkish blonde). I like my new red hair, though. :)   ~Jennie

    A Few Years Ago

    I first had strawberry blonde streaks in my hair when I was 12-13. I moved to California when I was 13, and I decided to dye it all back to dark brown. The dark brown dye made the streaks red. Which I thought was kind of cool, so I left it. I eventually decided to do it all red...

    Is there anyone who is a natural ginger-

    as in a dark auburn red color- and dyed their hair blood red or had blood red streaks in it? I'm thinking about doing that to my hair and I need pointers if I should or not.

    Not Permanent, But Might As Well Be

    I've been dying my hair red since I was 13 and have never stopped.  I  only use Natural Instincts temporary dye, but "temporary"  just means less bleach, so my roots aren't quite as visible (mousy brown) especially since red hair dyes naturally fade. I...

    I Really Like It.

    I have always been blonde.  When I was younger it was almost white, but as I got older it became a little darker, but it was still really blonde.  It seems whenever I get depressed I decide to do something different, like get it cut. But this last time I...

    Right before I had the operation on my tumor I had red streaks in my hair. And I loved it. I love the color red and it looked really good with the red streaks but that wasn't the only color in my hair I had purple, blue, white. and black. It was great and when my hair grows back...

    I Like Red

    I seem to have a thing for red hair, since my hair is naturally brown and curly. I guess it's the Irish in my blood that makes me addicted to dying my hair red. Not just red, but any shade of red. I'm dying my hair dark red as I type this. That, and my alter ego has short red...
