Hi Hi! Welcome back to my channel Solis Occasum
Happy new year, happy 2020
I wanted to inaugurate this year 2020 with a very special video
About my red hair
I've been with this reddish hair for about 3 years
Enough time to learn from my mistakes
to learn which are the products, which are the secrets
to keep a reddish color, an intense color, a lasting color over time
And above all, the necessary care to keep your hair as pretty and healthy as mine
Which has been hard for me to achieve
It can be a bit complicated for the people who are starting
So that's why I'm bringing to you an ultimate guide to keep and care red dyed hair
First of all, we are gonna talk a little bit about color
Color is essential when it comes to choose the right dye for the hair color you want
understanding the numbering of dyes is going to be crucial
So you can choose the right shade for your hair color
The numbering of dyes in the market may seem a bit confusing at first
But the truth is that it's very easy and we are gonna talk a little about that
In particular, about red colors
The first number of the dye, that is, the number before the dot is the base color
The base color means, more or less, how light or dark the hair dye is gonna be
This numbering ranges from 1 to 10
which 10 will be the lightest
and 1 the darkest
The base color will help you especially if you have a dark o light color base in your natural hair
or whatever your current hair color is
¿Why? Because if you already have a darker shade than the dye you wanna use
probably you will need a lighter base color.
This is not the case if you bleached your hair before
The following numbers are the reflects of the hair dye you are gonna use.
The second number is the primary reflect of the dye
This is basically what gives the color to the dye
And the third number is the secondary reflect of the dye
That means the color will be more intense or will reflect a different color...
or lighter...or coppery shades, mahogany shades...
that will depend on the indicated number.
In regards to red hair dyes, these ranges from 4 to 6.
Number 4 corresponds to coppery shades or orange
Number 5 are mahogany shades. In other words, violaceous.
This is, if you want a purplish red color
or not too intense, maybe darker or more winey
Lastly, number 6 is pure red
intense red, a passionate red.
Normally I always use in my dyes number 6 shades.
Or sometimes I like to have coppery shades.
That is, I don't know, normally I buy a 6.64
Just to say something
Now we will talk about the most important and crucial hair care
when it comes to already red-hair dyed in this case.
For hair care, normally I'd say there are 2 musts
In one side, is moisturizing
Moisturizing your hair is crucial afterwards you dye your hair
because any chemical process your hair goes through would dry it out.
So it's important to keep your hair moisturized, regardless of the color you will dye it.
Secondly, is a step that I learned with the time
and it is toning your hair
Toning your hair will allow you to maintain the color from your hair
without going through a complete hair dying process again
without the actual dye, without all the damage from that chemical process.
It's very important so now I will show you all the products I use
for maintaining and taking care of the red from my hair
and also keep it totally moisturized.
Firstly, the shampoo. Product we all use and
in my case, I have to wash my hair twice
I don't know why, maybe my hair accumulates a lot of sebum
and a single wash is not enough.
So I use two shampoos
The first shampoo I use, is an absolute basic shampoo
is this shampoo from Familand with no salt.
But the truth is, this is a wonderful shampoo
and it's highly recommended by many people that works with hair.
And I will tell you why.
This shampoo has no salt, has no parabens, it's a shampoo completely basic.
And the truth is, the more basic the better.
It's very important that a shampoo has no parabens, that is totally basic
actually it does more for your hair than you think
because all those products the industries put on the shampoos
that promises you miracles
in the end they damages your hair way more than you think.
So, the important thing about this shampoo
and what I like
is that is has no salt, it has none of those products that cause more damage to your hair.
And it cleans your hair deeply
it helps me a lot removing all the sebum, all the dirt my hair accumulates along the days.
And it has antioxydants
it's a shampoo that smells wonderfully, maqui scented.
It's a basic shampoo but it's really good for your hair if you just want to wash it.
The second shampoo I use for my second wash
or you can use it if you don't need to wash it twice like me
is this shampoo from Davines
it's the "Alchemic shampoo"
It's a toning shampoo
This means it has red pigments,
because it has pigments it will give you a little bit of color to your hair
avoiding a complete dying.
In particular, Davines has very good products,
it works with completely natural products,
it's worth to buy one of these, although they are not very cheap.
You can get this on specialized haircare stores.
It's a wonderful shampoo, it helps a lot to maintain the color from your hair
and it doesn't have parabens and weird artificial products
that could damages your hair way more.
I also use two conditioners, although I don't use them at the same time
but I use them depending on the need of my hair.
And I will explain you what I use them for.
The first conditioner I use is this from ELVIVE
this is the "Super conditioner" from the brand L'Oreal
It's a truly good conditioner.
All the conditioners from the brand L'Oreal from this line ELVIVE are very good.
I use this one mainly to give all the moisturize that my hair needs,
it had work great on me.
It's a very complete conditioner,
it helps a lot for hair growing
it's something that I also care about
if you also care it's really good to know that aswell.
It has vegetal keratin, vitamins, castor oil that also helps for hair growing.
It's a very good conditioner, very complete and it helps to moisturizes your hair
it works great on me.
And the second conditioner I use is this from Davines aswell
it's actually the continuation of the shampoo I showed you previously.
It's the "Alchemic Conditioner" from Davines
this also has red pigments on it,
which is why I don't use it very often.
But I use it especially if I want to tone my hair a little bit more,
when I want to give it more color.
You can use this conditioner about three times a week if you want to use it as a treatment,
as a toner is very good.
Also, like the shampoo it doesn't have very aggressive products for your hair.
It's really really good.
So, I totally recommend it if you want to maintain your red hair for a long long time.
Lastly, I want to talk about the "Bonus" products that I use
which are products that I don't use everyday, not everytime I wash my hair,
but everytime I either want to provide moisturizing, or extra toning to my hair
First of all, I wanna talk about toners.
My sister-in-law made this one for me who works as a stylist.
But anyways, any toner that has a little amount of dye
will be enough for you to making this coloring treatment kinda mild for your hair
without going through a complete dye as I said before.
You can make your own mixing a little bit of your dye with some conditioner,
with some moisturizer that you like.
My sister-in-law made this
it kinda works the same
It has a dye a little bit more mahogany, more violaceous than my hair.
Normally I'd recommend that you use a dye a little darker than your hair
for providing more intensity to your hair
because if you use the same dye you are using, maybe it won't works the same as if you use it by its own.
And finally, I wanna talk about my very favourite hair product
It's a product I got recently
and it's this moisturizer from Rebel
which is an indie brand, it's from a friend.
This moisturizer is the best thing I've used for moisturizing my hair
it's truly phenomenal. My mom uses it aswell.
It's this moisturizer called Medusa.
I will let you the instagram from this wonderful store from my friend Nico
who makes this wonderful beauty care products for any kinds of needs, not hair only.
What I like of this moisturizer is that it's made with completely natural products.
It has rosemary oil, silk protein, argan oil...
all natural products there's no secret on it.
And the truth is it makes your hair very very healthy,
I use this treatment about twice a week
this is when my hair feels a bit dry, dead, shineless...
a single application of this revitalizes your hair completely
Normally, I always suggest that you use natural products rather than the market ones
because natural products are truly the best when it comes to take care of your hair,
taking care of your skin and taking care of any part of your body.
