This Is How I Fool Everyone Into Thinking I’m a Natural Redhead

For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a redhead

Everyone on my mom’s side of the family has gorgeous auburn locks and I always admired their unique hair color, plus I like the idea of having strands that stand out. The reality: My mom never let me dye my light brown hair.

As soon as I moved to New York City for college, I made my salon appointment to go ginger (sorry, Mom!) and I couldn’t have been more excited. I walked in with a picture of Emma Stone and hoped for the best. My hair turned out better than I expected, and I felt more like myself than I ever had before. I strutted out as a new woman… but was back again only two weeks later because my virgin hair wouldn't hold the dye. It completely faded in just 14 days!

I wish I had known then to use an at-home color-depositing product like dpHUE Color Boosting Gloss + Deep Conditioning Treatment but that was just one of the lessons I’ve learned since making the switch to red.
