There are hair colors that look delicate and restrained. Honey blond for example, or Chestnut. And then there's hair color that really pops.

Burgundy red hair? How to dye it

Burgundy hair comes across stylish - and confident.

Brunettes can easily dye their hair burgundy themselves. Important: The initial hair color shouldn't be darker than the desired result when putting in a rinse. If you want a bigger change, you should consult a stylist who will make sure that the Burgundy will actually turn out the way you imagine it.

If you have medium brown or light brown hair, you can do your own color. Home dyeing is child's play with the right color. Tip: Give your hair extra care for two to three weeks in advance. Color doesn't last as well on dry hair, and the result is less shiny.

How to care for Burgundy hair

With proper care, Burgundy hair keeps its shine for longer.

After using the rinse, apply the color sealer included in the pack. It makes the Burgundy shade shine more intensely and seals the hair cuticles that have been opened by dyeing. Red pigments are very small, which is why they wash out faster than other hair colors. To keep your hair a deep, radiant Burgundy for as long as possible, you can use products developed especially to care for dyed hair. They protect against fading and let the color shine for longer. Tip: For extra care, put on an intensive care mask once a week and leave it on for about 10 to 15 minutes.
