With the fascinating fact that less than 2% of the total population of the world have natural ginger hair, it’s easy to see why many people become a bit nervous when thinking about getting ginger hair extensions. There are several shades this fiery show-stopping colour, ranging from rich, deep burgundy to spicy, fiery auburn. There is, however, a copper hair extensions shade to suit every skin tone and texture — the key to perfect ginger hair is finding the right shade that works for you. That’s why today we break down everything you need to know about ginger hair extensions.

You may be worried if the colour will match your skin tone, or perhaps you’re curious to know what the difference between these different shades are.

8. Looking after your ginger hair extensions (back to index)

Bright Red Hair Extensions

To look after your red or ginger hair is equally challenging for the ones who are not born with or have dyed (which is quite a lot of work, to be frank) or own Cliphair hair extensions. It is mainly because the colour molecules of red and ginger hair are larger than any other colours’ molecules. Natural or dyed, both are ultra-sensitive to midday sunlight and chlorine water. So, one has to be mindful of the maintenance of red and ginger hair extensions.

We have listed some go-to tips on how to keep your red/ ginger hair shiny, healthy and long-lasting. This goes the same if you dye your hair extensions red instead of having your own. But first of all, be prepared to give extra care for looking fantastic in stunning rouge!

Shampoo + Conditioner

Always go for the shampoos and conditioners designed particularly for the red colour hair. They contain a high concentration of nurturing and protective agents. These elements are full of antioxidants which revitalise hair and keep it vibrant and full of life especially for red hair due to larger colour molecules. Products made of a mignonette tree, also known as a henna tree, is also tried and tested product to enhance original colour and keep it firm and fresh while Henna can also be used for dyed red hair to rejuvenate the look of it. This is the best option if you want to go for something that is a bit more natural and less harsh on your hair.

Use colour rinse and toner

Don’t wait too long to use a colour rinse. As soon as you see the red colour is fading between colour treatments. The rinse colour treatment will give extra vibrancy to the hair. This will keep your hair looking fresher for longer and stop you having to dye your hair too soon (let’s face it we all know that dying your hair isn’t great for it). There is a big difference between being a redhead and brassy locks. Colours like strawberry blonde are notoriously hard to master and it becomes hard to avoid the brass. What will help is toner, and don’t skimp on it. This will keep your colour ‘purer’ for longer.
