Review: Superdrug Colour Effects wash in, wash out Hair Dye in Rich Red

I've gone ginger!

Becoming a red head it something I love to dabble with every few months. I'm really pale with green eyes so I'm lucky my colouring suits being blonde and ginger. However, I like to return to my natural blonde after a while so a good wash in, wash out hair dye is a necessity. 

My favourite dye is the Superdrug Colour Effects range which costs £1.49. Here I have used Superdrug Colour Effects in Rich Red which is designed for brown hair shades to give a hint of red. It's not advised for use on bleached or highlighted hair, but a few years ago I thought I'd try it anyway and found it works really well on my bleached and highlighted hair to give a natural redhead shade of ginger! 


The instructions say to wet your hair in the shower, squeeze the excess water out and then lather it in your hair and leave it for 5 minutes before rinsing. I find this gives a very natural strawberry hue, so I tend to apply it, leave for 10 minutes with my head wrapped in a towel, rinse, then apply another coat and leave for 10 minutes before rinsing again!


It does take better to freshly bleached sections, so as you can see on my hair there is a slight gradient to strawberry in the ends but I don't mind!


The only issue I have with this is it doesn't wash in and wash out - it takes about a week or two for my hair to return to its natural colour, but I enjoy the journey from bright red, through strawberry blonde and back to my normal colour. I get to look different every day! If you want to speed up the process (as I have had to previously because Mum wanted me to look "normal" for an event!), I find it helps to use an anti-dandruff shampoo to wash the dye out, and to soak your hair in coconut oil because strangely the more moisture you put in, the more red is drawn out. After that, use your usual shampoo and conditioner, or something with purple tones in to reduce brassiness.






Also if you have any, use gloves...

    1. With brown hair, the effect won't be as red, it might just give your hair a little tint of red. It'll be easy for you to get back to normal if your hair is undyed - the only dodgy dye issues come from when you dye bleached hair. However I have bleached hair and it came out fine. Good luck!

  6. I have bleached blonde hair and need to go dark for an occasion, so does it wash out completely over a couple of weeks? Does it stain the bleached hair at all?

    1. I found the red didn't stain my bleached highlights. However if you go darker I guess the dye may hang around for longer than the red. Maybe check out bleach London super cool colours instead?
