As we wrap up October, we’re looking back at all our beauty favs for the month. Redheads require specific beauty products and this is the true foundation and purpose when HowtobeaRedhead.com was founded in 2011. We have unique hair and skin characteristics that can greatly benefit from specialized care. Here are a few reasons why we need specific redhead-approved items:
1. Skin Sensitivity: Many redheads have fair and sensitive skin, which can be more prone to sunburn and irritation. We may need sunscreen with higher SPF, hypoallergenic makeup, or skincare products designed for sensitive skin.
2. Hair Care: Red hair is often finer and more delicate than other hair types, so specific shampoos and conditioners can help maintain its color and texture. Additionally, red hair can be more prone to fading, so products formulated for color-treated hair may be beneficial.
3. Makeup Shades: Redheads often have unique undertones in their skin and require makeup products in shades that complement their hair and complexion. This includes choosing the right foundation, lipstick, and blush colors.
4. Sun Protection: Given our stereotypical fair skin (although redheads are from all ethnicities and nationalities around the world), redheads may need to be diligent about sun protection. This may involve using specific sunscreens, wide-brimmed hats, and protective clothing.
While redheads may not always require entirely separate beauty products, choosing items that cater to their specific needs can enhance their beauty routines and help them maintain their unique look. From haircare to skincare and everything in between, we know you will love these 10 ‘Redhead Friendly’ Approved products just as much as we do:
The weather is getting colder, and nobody wants to leave the house with wet hair. Give your red hair a quick style and a dry with this all-in-one styling brush. It makes for easy at-home blowouts and is a great alternative to pricier options like the Dyson Airwrap or the Shark FlexStyle.
Make your light brows pop with this best-selling redhead brow gel. It’s made by redheads, for redheads in the perfect universal red shade.
Keep your red hair looking and feeling its best with our shine and luminosity shampoo for all shades of red hair. No color depositing, just shine, gloss, and hydration! Featured in the Fall Deluxe H2BAR Box.
Keep your lips hydrated this fall and winter with a hydrating lip oil like this one.
Dermaplaning is a great way to exfoliate the skin, remove unwanted hair, and get a nice soft finish to the skin. However, it can be a time-consuming process that for many redheads can be irritating to the skin. As an alternative, try this painless hair remover that leaves no irritation!
Skip the trip to the nail salon and apply these easy-to-use nail wraps instead. You can get a foolproof manicure in minutes with less mess than regular polish.
If you’ve already got an SPF you love, we recommend this facial cream that doubles as a makeup primer to leave your face nourished and prepped.
We love adding serums to our skincare routines, especially in the colder months of the year.
For silky smooth skin this fall and winter, try this rich, hydrating, and deliciously scented argan oil body butter. Like your body butter unscented? There’s an option for that too.
Rock it like a Redhead!
