A lot of people have been dying their hair red for a while now, I love it. I've been thinking about dying my hair red, but I don't think that I could pull it off. :P

But the problem with dying your hair red is that it can fade really fast. Thankfully, there are ways to slow down your red from fading.

► Touch up your own roots.
- Instead of going to all the trouble of going to your hairdresser, touch up your roots at home. It's cheaper and faster.

► Use hair glaze
- I've heard that the best brand is 'Roux' because a lot of glazes can dry out your hair, but this kind conditions while it glazes.

► Use color depositing conditioners
- These can be pretty expensive, but you don't need much of it in order to get results. 

► Don't wash your hair daily
- Scrubbing your color raw is the easiest way for it to fade. Dry shampoo is better, but holding back on the washing is best.

► Post dye, don't wash right away
- After you've gotten your hair dyed the first time, wait a few days until you wash your hair so the color can set better

► Use sulfate free hair products
- Sulfate free products are generally gentler on your hair.

Good luck, you ginger you. ;D

    Add a subtle bohemian look to any outfit with these irresistible feather drop earrings. The feather is symbolic of spiritual evolution and moving freely in life, a sign of ascension. These tactile feather charms are suspended on hook wire fittings. 925 sterling silver with 18ct gold plate. All gold items are sterling silver with a generous 2 micron thick layer of 18ct yellow gold or 18ct rose gold as recommended by the UK hallmarking council. Jewellery care: Sterling silver naturally tarnishes when exposed to air, lotions and potions and chemicals such as chlorine. You can keep your silver sparkling by regularly cleaning with a soft polishing cloth (or a little soapy water and soft toothbrush). Whilst gold plated jewellery will not tarnish, over time it may appear dirty or slightly dull. To keep all of your silver shining and gold gleaming we recommend the following; Put your jewellery on last when dressing to minimise exposure to perfumes and body lotions. Remove when swimming or bathing, exercising and sleeping. Store in a cool, dry place when not in use. Wear and treat with love! We regret that due to hygiene reasons earrings can not be returned unless faulty.
