How Ginger Men Can Enhance Their Red

Love Your Red Hair!

Your red hair isn’t as vibrant as it used to be, or maybe your red was never that vibrant but you always wished it was. Enhancing your hair color isn’t just for women, it’s a trick men can use too. Enhancing your red hair can make it look fuller, healthier, and more vibrant. Being a redhead means you stand out, so why not embrace the uniqueness and have your red hair looking its absolute best? Here’s how redhead men can enhance their natural red hair:

1. Finally Glossy® Shine & Luminosity Shampoo for Redheads

While Finally Glossy® is NOT a color-depositing shampoo, it is a great way to enhance the look of your hair a bit. This is perfect for those redheads who are happy with their color but could use some added shine and help their hair feel healthier and happier. You’d be surprised how much a little added shine, plus there are no extra steps. Just swap out your normal shampoo with Finally Glossy® and you’re good to go.

2. Use color depositing shampoos + conditioners

If you do want some added color, you can use a color-depositing shampoo or conditioner. This is a temporary color enhancement that can be done at home to help your red hair be more vibrant. You can even use a color-depositing shampoo or conditioner on your beard if it’s fading.

Applying color depositing shampoo or conditioner to a beard can be done by following these steps:

1. Choose the right product: Look for a color depositing shampoo or conditioner specifically formulated for red hair or a shade close to your natural hair color.

2. Patch test: Before applying the product to your entire beard, do a patch test on a small area of your skin to ensure you don’t have any adverse reactions.

3. Wash your beard: Start by washing your beard with regular shampoo to remove any dirt or oils. Pat it dry with a towel, leaving it slightly damp.

4. Apply the color depositing product: Squeeze a small amount of the color depositing shampoo or conditioner onto your fingertips. Gently massage it into your beard, making sure to evenly distribute the product from root to tip.

5. Leave it on: Follow the instructions on the product packaging for how long to leave the color depositing shampoo or conditioner on your beard. This typically ranges from a few minutes to several minutes.

6. Rinse thoroughly: Once the recommended time has passed, thoroughly rinse the product out of your beard with lukewarm water until the water runs clear.

7. Condition (optional): If you used a color depositing shampoo, you may want to follow up with a regular conditioner to keep your beard soft and moisturized.

8. Repeat as needed: Depending on the level of color fading and your desired result, you may need to repeat the process regularly to maintain the color of your beard.

Remember to always read and follow the instructions provided with the product for best results and to avoid any potential damage to your beard or skin.

3. Use hair glazes + conditioners 

Like a color-depositing shampoo, glazes and glosses are temporary hair treatments you can do at home. They can help to boost shine and reduce frizz while enhancing your color and giving you a boost of vibrancy. 

3. In-salon hair treatments 

Of course, there’s always the option to head to the salon. A professional stylist can give you a temporary treatment similar to the ones listed above, or you can tackle your hair with permanent dye to enhance the color. 

4. Know about some DIY hair enhancing products for redhead men

*Always consult with a professional before adding a hair product to the beard or any other parts of the body.

Rock it like a Redhead!
