I Dyed My Hair Ruby Rage (Clairol Texture & Tones 6R)
[Editors note: I think there has been a mistake, the pics of me with the really red hair is not the end result of the dye, that is with the dye still in and it represent the color I am actually aiming to achieve. The pics with me with cornrows represent the final color after the hair dye was actually rinsed out completely.]
I’ve been threatening whoever would listen that I was going to dye my hair red for months now. What can I say, when I get antsy or depressed or bored I have to do something to myself; my hair just happens to be the biggest loudest target.
The type of red I was going for was kool aid candy red; not so much an actually occuring human hair color red.
Nevertheless, I figured I would start small and work my way up which brings me to the Ruby Rage hair color. Believe it or not I was standing in the store holding two types of blonde before I finally settled on something in the red category and resigned myself to potentially having to give my hair a rinse in order to get the candy color I want.
The color did come out like the color on the box but…
… I definitely prefer the color I had while the dye was in!
After I washed the dye completely out of my hair this is what I ended up with( sorry but I took the photos after they were already cornrowed). It’s still very auburnish, like a mix up between a auburn and a burgundy.
As I am one to wear my hair pulled back, I don’t really like the patch dark brown that I have going on since it creates a very uneven look. When my hair is in a fro it’s ok but as I rarely do that I’ll have to deal with it quickly.
I am definitely going to dye my hair over in my quest for my perfect red but I’m not yet certain what strategy I’m going to take.
On another note, I loved the texture hair I had when the dye was all coiled up. I wish I could find a hair product which simulated it.
