Tips

  • Do not use plastic bowls or cups to mix your dye. It could permanently stain the plastic. You can darken your natural red hair by rinsing it with strong black coffee and letting it sit on your hair for 30-to-45 minutes under a shower cap. This will give your red hair a natural, dark red look. Use strong rosehip tea to give your hair a brighter red color. Boil 1/2 cup to one cup rosehips with 2 cups water until the mixture boils down to half. Apply to your hair after it cools. Let it sit on the hair for 1 hour. Apply strong hibiscus tea to give red hair a warmer hue. Boil 5-10 tablespoons of hibiscus in 2 cups water until it boils down to half and rinse your hair with the mixture several times after it cools. Let it sit on your hair for 1 hour.
