Mane Maintenance

Red is the most difficult hair shade to maintain. Why? Red hair dye has the largest color molecule which makes it difficult to enter the hair shaft. So while your hue may look vibrant right after your salon appointment (while the dye is still fresh on the cuticle), it can fade fast with every shampoo thereafter. Here, 12 essentials to keep red hair looking ravishing well after the four week mark.
