Your hair will fall out and then you'll be hideous.

I know next to nothing about dying hair, but I think that you'd have to go through steps to go from dark brown to bright red.

Every hair is different. I have black hair and dying it red makes it a little brownish. If you aren't sure, cut a lock of hair and sample it out.

You'll need to go for a very vibrant permanent red and look at the box, where a picture should inform you if it's suitable for your hair tone and the colour you can expect.


Remember, only bleach-based hair products will make your hair lighter. Normal ammonia-based dye can't make your hair lighter, just change the tone.

Ok cheers, and what are the chances of my hair falling out if I do decide to permanently dye it ?

Get permanent dye instead. It'll work, and stay red until either you grow it out, or get a decent hairdresser to dye it back for you. But don't trust mediocre hairdressers with anything, particularly dyes.

Slim to none.

If you have dark hair you would have to bleach it first for the dye to really be noticeable then use a good dye, if you are talking about punk style dying then a product like Manic Panic will work great (http://www.manicpanic.com/) otherwise I have no clue.

That seemed like a better question since dying it does not affect that occasionally-occuring phenomenon.

Chances are...


Look at your family, does your father and his father still have their hair? Good. That's called genetics.

Mix a tiny bit of the dye up and do a spot test behind your ear. (don't mix up the two bottles, it expires fast, do it in a separate little container or on a cotton bud)

Do this and then if you haven't had any reaction you are fine to use it 48 hours later.

Your hair won't fall out but I think dyeing it far too regularly can make it fragile. It'll grow back though.

Also really make sure you follow the test strip advice on the dye. Even if you don't think you have any allergies.

I knew a girl who dyed her hair almost everyday but her hair didn't fall out, I doubt yours will either.

That's a ridiculous amount of hair dying.

I've always found that hair dyed red looks bad... natural hair colour usually looks better.

Well, Auburn is undeniably most gorgeous hair colour, so go for that.

Have a hair color specialist do a strand test.

This is the only way you'll know what will happen.

My hair is naturally very dark brown, close to black, very thick, wavy and tough. It's very light blonde right now. It had to be bleached first then dyed with some type of dye only a licensed hair stylist could buy.

Also, relax, your hair probably won't fall out.

And lastly, bleaching your hair won't cause any significant damage unless you bleach often. If you do it once you will be fine. Though you probably don't want to try doing it yourself.

I'd ask a hairdresser for a quote on getting it dyed.
I had a bright blue fringe dyed into my hair for Download 09.
It needed bleaching then the blue put in. My hairdresser only charged me £5 and I would have never got it looking that good by dying at home.

This stuff here, if you can find it, works really well on dark hair. My hair is close to black and I still managed to get a nice, vibrant color out of it.

I wouldn't reccommend bleaching your hair at all.
#23
hey, to answer your question, red will not show up vibrantly over brown hair. if you put red dye on borwn it willonly have a red tinge visable in the light. to get a really vibrant colour you should bleach your hair first then dye red. swartzkoph (sorry wrong spelling) do a range called live xxl that combines lightening bleach and dye in one. will give a nice vibrant red but its permanent

No. Worst advice ever. Don't do this.



You don't paint red over dark brown, same rules apply when you dye hair
