How to Dye Hair Red without Using Bleach l Loreal HiColors Hi-Lift Red Magenta Hair Color

In this hair dye tutorial, I’m going to show you how to dye your hair red without using bleach and damaging it too much. This is an easy hair coloring process to turn your dark virgin black hair or dyed brown hair to a bright red color. I’m using L’Oreal Excellence HiColor Highlights in Magenta with a 30 volume developer. Magenta is a cool toned down pink-red, but if you’d like something warmer and more predominantly red, then I’d recommend going Loreal Hicolor Highlights in “Red.” I’ve tried that on my sister’s virgin black hair before, and it turned out very well! 🙂 I love this magenta hair dye – the results remind me of the beautiful red color Ariana Grande had in the show “Victorious.” I hope this was helpful and feel free to check out additional tips I have below.

✔Tips on dyeing your hair at home:

1. Leave your hair unwashed for a few days before dyeing your hair. Your natural oils will help to protect your hair from the harsh chemicals. You can also condition/moisturize your hair with coconut oil beforehand.
2. You should wear a shirt you don’t mind getting dirty because this hair dye stains A LOT! You can rub Vaseline along your hairline to prevent the dye from staining your skin. Remember to cover your floor or it’ll be a mess.
3. Hair dye develops faster at your roots because it’s newly grown hair and there’s heat there. Thus, your roots will turn out brighter if you color it at the same time as the rest of your hair. To have better results, you can divide your hair into 4 sections and try the method I showed in the video.
4. To get a deep and rich hair color, you should saturate your hair well with the hair dye. If your hair is long and thick, you may need 3-4 boxes of dye.
5. If possible, get someone to help you apply the dye. Since they can see the back of your head better, they’ll make sure that you won’t miss a spot.
6. If you’re unsure about how the results will turn out, you can do a test section first. Mix a little dye with developer and apply it on a section of your hair from top to bottom. Then, foil this off for 30 minutes and rinse. The results will give you a better idea of how the dye will react to your hair.
7. If you think you’ll be sensitive to the chemicals, then do an allergy test first.
8. The dye may react differently on your hair than it does on mine, so take that into consideration. For best results, do tons of research first.
Good luck! 🙂

  1. I died it red hot last night and it came out alittle darker like burgandy so im gonna try to do magenta and see if it will give me the same results as you i love how your hair came out thats the color that i wanted so that everyone could tell the difference

  2. Yes just bought all of this the other day glad to know it will work thanks for sharing❤

  3. Your voice is completely horrific your hair looks redicullous and I can smell when you farted and toodles are you d.u.m dumb God this is painful…. Your hair looks like Dukey…

  4. Why is she giving me Erza Scarlet vibes with the white and blue outfit and of course THE HAIR

  5. Quick question how'd you get the light brown hair color before you went with the magenta??? Thanks!

  6. My hair is the same color as yours at the end ( bright red) but I’m thinking of trying a tube of magenta mixed with half a tube of true violet by loreal hi color… do you think it would come out ok? 😊

  7. I did until i saw the untie in the aircraft have a same color as me. Next day i bleach my hair to blonde 😂

  8. I would never apply my ends first. you need a completely different formula for the roots that’s why they go hot 30. Should be 10 vol on them roots maybe 20 for black roots but not 30

  9. What if you have had a chemical burn and you still have super fried hair even with the grow out would this be at all damaging? Please answer !
