Iv been colouring my hai red since i was 11 years old. When i first started it took a while to come through. The best hair colour i have found to take you from brown to red without having to bleach before hand is Loreal Excel HiColour i use sizzling copper. There is bleach is this colour but you get an amazing lift from it. I use mine with 30 vol and i have fairly dark brown hair it gives me great lift only problem its not quite as natural looking as Miss Hendricks is but its a great colour, Its not to expensive but you do need to buy a specfic developer with it. Think the developer is called Loreal Oreor Developer.I think if you live in america you can get in sallys. I live in ireland so i order it off Amazon. Also Pravana Chroma Silk have lovely colours you do need to bleach your hair before you use them because you cant use an oxidant with them, but they make a great colour balm. Hope this helps :D
I did hair for many years. I wore red most of the time and in different shades. I wore wella color charm level 7 base red using a 30 volume developer, quite a few times. It was a strong red. That fit me fine when I was younger but at my age I would look silly. A co worker wore red too but hers was similar to the color you are looking for. She pre colored her hair to a light shade then used semi permanent Matrix red in level 5 every week to keep it a strong funky color. If you were to color your virgin hair with wella liquid color charm level 12 base yellow and 3 ounces of 40 volume developer in liquid form. Apply it with a toner bottle, process 45 minutes. Then shampoo. Find a matrix semi permanent in red level 6 and also in gold level 7 mix mix equal parts, that looks like what the lady is wearing. Red alone with look like Ronald Mc Donald. You need to mix it 2 parts red with 1 part gold. The semi permanents work better after lightening the hair because they stick better. If you were to color your hair with just a red permanent hair color it washes out too quickly because the hair will be very porous. This will be like doing a double process but without the bleach which would really fry the hair.
OK here is my secret to getting this color which I am sporting for about 3 years now. I am a natural medium ashy brown.
I use http://www.sallybeauty.com/mega-reds-haircolor/SBS-500092,default,p... first to get the tone right
right after that to intensify the red/orange/copper hue of this color. This is straight up orange and the secret to getting this color as bright and coppery as possible!
When the red fades, I touch up with the Color Jamz orange again, put it in dry or damp unwashed hair and let it sit for 30 mins to an hour. The orange does bleed a lot when washing but the good thing is, this color is not damaging to your hair at all and you can touch up the fading color anytime. Sometimes I just put a little bit in my hair when I shower, super easy.
So that is pretty much it.
If you have really dark hair you might wanna do a less damaging bleach wash before (ask you hair dresser for that one) to get it light enough, but if you have medium to light hair, you should be fine just using the L'oreal mega red.
I hope all of that made sense.
Here's a picture of me with that same hair color.
Holy wowza i'm gonna try your advice because i tried to do it but it went a little bit south by mixing two hair dyes so yeah it didnt quite go the right color but it looks nice anyways thanks for the tips!
you look gorgeous lady!
