How to Brighten Naturally Red Hair

We spend a lot of time talking about blonde and brown hair on this blog, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t  looking out for red hair too! 

As a redhead, unique hair comes to you naturally, and we’re here to help you keep it as healthy, strong, and bright as possible!

Turn up the brightness.

Want to add some oomph to your natural red hair color and really turn heads? oVertone Ginger Coloring Conditioner will transform your strands with a bright pop of rich, golden orange. And our Copper Custom Color Kit will heat things up with a deeper, orange-based red.

If you’re looking to go a totally different color, check out this post for more shades that look amazing on naturally red hair!

Wash and style responsibly.

With oVertone, you can do more than color your hair — you can protect it from damage, too! Healthy hair is our top priority, and we have everything you need.

When your strands need some extra TLC, reach for The Remedy to treat your hair to some serious hydration (if you have thinner or finer hair, go for the lighter-weight The Remedy for Fine Hair instead). Leave the mask on your hair for 10-15 minutes, and finish up your rinse with cool water to close up your hair’s cuticle and leave your strands moisturized and shiny. 

When you’re ready to dry your hair, skip your abrasive cotton or terry cloth towel — go for the AQUIS Rapid Dry Lisse Hair Turban instead. 

Style without heat whenever possible, but if you can’t live without it, be sure to use a heat protectant beforehand!

Improve hair health from the inside out.

Hair health doesn’t begin and end with the products you put onto your strands; what you’re putting into your body is just as important! 

Take your vitamins. Nutrients like vitamin A, B-vitamins (including biotin), vitamin C, iron, and protein all help promote healthy hair growth. Make them a regular part of your diet or take them as supplements to level up your hair! 

Get some sun. Vitamin D will help keep your hair on your head where it belongs (low levels can contribute to hair loss). Your body produces vitamin D when in direct sunlight, so get outside and catch some rays when you can! 

Stay hydrated. You probably hear this one a lot when it comes to overall health, but drinking plenty of water is great for your hair! Not only does hydration promote hair growth, it also helps prevent brittle strands, split ends, dry scalp, and dandruff.
