2. The Problem: Your red hair is feeling dry, coarse, and frizzy

How to Fix It: Red hair that is dry and frizzy is in need of nourishment and hydration. The first thing to do is make sure you’re staying hydrated, especially in the hot summer sun. Next, you will want to prevent any further drying or frizz, so lay off the hot tools and cover up with a hat or headscarf when you go into the sun. To bring your hair back to its former glory you will need to infuse it with hydration through hair masks, hair oils and smoothing treatments. Use Paul Mitchell’s Neuro Repair Treatment once a week on your red hair and apply Privé Smoothing Solution when styling your red hair.

3. The Problem: Your scalp and roots are a greasy mess

How to Fix It: Greasy red hair is super common in the summer and can be caused by a variety of things. Make sure you’re using products free of oils and have the proper brush to distribute the oils throughout your locks. Use dry shampoo to touch up hair that gets greasy between washes

4. The Problem: You have breakage and split ends

How to Fix It: When drying your hair opt to use a microfiber towel! Introducing the How to be a Redhead Soft Microfiber Hair Towel for Redheads. Because wet hair is at its most vulnerable, this custom microfiber towel gently and carefully absorbs moisture from your red hair and dries it quickly, all while protecting it from stretching and breakage. This design is uniquely shaped to wrap all of your hair securely (no matter the length), with an elastic strap to comfortably keep things in place. Your hair journey starts here, redheads.
