Natural ginger hair is uniquely beautiful and captivating, and on top of that it does require some special hair. If you’re a natural redhead looking to show your tresses some good old TLC, then this blog is for you. In this guide, I’ll explore with you the ways you can enhance your natural red hair, how to make the most of your tresses by using the right products, and how to elevate its look with the perfect accessories!
Caring for Your Ginger Hair
Caring for your hair starts from within: following a good, healthy diet will have a huge impact on the way your hair looks and feels. You can find your perfect hair recipe in our dedicated blog: #Healthyhair Foods To Eat For Healthy Hair.
Once you’ve found your best allies for perfect tresses in your kitchen, it’s time to move to the shower. What you use on your hair when you wash it heavily contributes to the final look; this is why it’s essential that you establish a dedicated hair care routine and include all the products that work magic on your hair. Ginger hair tends to be more delicate although coarse, and it's crucial to treat it gently to preserve its vibrancy and shine!
Always opt for sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners to prevent your hair from going dry and brittle over time. This is especially important if you’re wearing human hair extensions, as they don’t get any nourishment and hydration from your scalp.
Every time you resort to heat-based styling tools such as flat irons and curling wands, make sure you spritz a generous dose of heat-protectant spray on your tresses to shield them from damage.
Making Ginger Hair More Vibrant
If you’d like to intensify the natural vibrancy of your ginger hair without dyeing it, you can try some of these methods to boost your natural hue!
Try natural ingredients such as red henna, beetroot juice and hibiscus to boost the redness in your hair in an all-green way, or explore the red-enhancing options in shampoo, conditioners and hair masks designed to boost hair color.
One of my favourite options is the Glaze Super Color Conditioning Gloss: available in different shades, this cream leaves your hair soft and manageable whilst gifting it unmatched shine and a pigmentation kick.
Choosing the Right Hair Products
Selecting the right hair products to include in your hair care routine is the key to success when it comes to enhancing ginger hair and its natural beauty.
I have listed some of my all-time favourite shampoos for redheads in this blog: The Best Shampoo For Ginger Hair Extensions, but the list doesn’t stop here.
Avoiding Color Fading and Damage
If you have previously boosted your naturally red hair with a hair dye job, then protecting the color from fading is essential. Don’t forget to use hair SPF to prevent the vibrancy of your hair from going dull, and limit the use of heat-styling tools. Also, I can’t stress this enough, use your heat protection spray!
Professionally Enhance Your Ginger Hair
For a more dramatic transformation, consider professional hair services! A treatment such as the brazilian blow dry or a hair botox session can give your hair a real makeover with unprecedented shine, softness, and manageability.
A skilled hair colorist can help enhance your ginger hair by adding subtle highlights or lowlights to create depth and dimension in your tresses, or you can easily achieve this by using mixed shade or balayage hair extensions.
Last but not least, using ginger hair extensions can help you boost your mane with added thickness, volume and length – depending on your desired style. Blending seamlessly with your natural tresses, red hair extensions can work wonders and transform your hair. Whether you’re looking for a 5-minutes-makeover by using clip in hair extensions or a long-term transformation by using a more permanent solution such as tape in hair extensions or nano ring hair extensions, there are plenty of options for you.
With the right care and products, natural red hair can shine in a new light and stun with unmatched beauty. Find your perfect match among our collection of ginger human hair extensions and gift your mane the glow up it deserves!
