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.

Almost reddy,

Check out part II to this and see the actual color I got.

    I think i have the same texture of hair you have when i dye my hair or put shampoo and contitioner in my hair it coils up the way i want it but when i wash it out its not coiled anymore i wish i could get something to keep mine to stay that way

      Oooh….so i’ve discovered that if I make up a solution of damp hair and shea butter and hair gel…I can nearly get the texture that I get when dye is in it…hope that helps

    The trick is to mix your desired color with the lightest blond color. Then you get the color you desire. I just mix the two boxed colors in a 99cent squeeze bottle. Use equal parts of course.

    Hi! I was googling this hair color to show a coworker when I noticed that you are also looking for a product that gave you hair the look that the color gave you while it was in your hair. Well, I work a Trichologist, Lisa Akbari who has a product that I believe you’ll be interested in. The product is called Naturally Textured. It gives your hair the textured look without the chemical.

    Man I’ve been looking for a perfect red that looked good on black women because I want red hair for my birthday. Im glad you posted pictures so I could actually see how it comes out. It looked great! However I am kind of concerned about the dye doing that to your edges. :-/ Hopefully my hair comes out like the first picture.
