Can I Dye My Hair Red Without Bleaching It?

Our semi-permanent hair colors and temporary red hair dyes are made without harsh peroxides, lighteners, or bleach, so they won’t lighten your starting color. This makes the base color you begin with key. To achieve a super-saturated shade or a washed-out light red color, you’ll want to start with pre-lightened blonde strands—you’ll enjoy the most vivid results if you apply your red dye to a platinum or medium-blonde base.

If you have virgin hair, or your current color can be categorized as being within levels 1-6 (black to light brown hair), it will be especially important to bleach first for vibrant color that can fully absorb into your hair follicles. To achieve your dream red hue, use our bleach kits to lighten before you dye. They’re safe and easy to use!

To experiment with red hair color without breaking out the bleach, stick with our full-coverage shades. These full-coverage dyes are packed with high-intensity pigment that delivers intense color impact on pre-lightened platinum to medium blonde hair, but they’ll also add a tint of color to dark blonde and light brown hair. To bring warmth to your darker mane, try a deep red, like Chestnut, for a subtle violet-red tint. Or, reach for our washable hair dye sprays to liven up your dark strands, without the commitment of a semi-permanent dye.

Red Hair Dye

If you want to make a statement with your strands, reach for red—hair dye, that is. At Lime Crime, you’re sure to find the right red hair dye to give you head-turning tresses. Our Unicorn Hair Full Coverage collection includes eight vivid variations on red for the dramatic ‘do of your dreams. Let out your inner rocker with a fiery scarlet shade, like Valentine, or embrace your romantic side with a dusty raspberry, like Mystic Rose. For a more subtle look, try our semi-permanent Unicorn Hair Tints, which leaves a soft wash of color on pre-lightened platinum to pale blonde hair. Not ready to commit to crimson? You can still join in on the fun with high-intensity temporary hair color sprays that wash out easily with water.

The pigment in all of our dyes provides intense color payoff sans damage, so you can change up your look as often as you’d like. Find your ideal red hair color and learn more about our DIY-friendly red hair dyes, ahead.

Is Red Hair Dye Damaging?

Because our semi-permanent hair colors are formulated without harsh chemicals or artificial dyes, they won’t damage your strands. In fact, the formulas condition your hair while depositing high-intensity pigment. The result: Soft, silky hair that looks (and feels) its best.

How Long Does Red Hair Dye Last?

How long your hue lasts depends on a few factors, including if your hair is processed, how pigmented the shade is, and the way you care for your hair. The latter refers to how often you wash your hair, whether you use sulfate-free shampoo, if you go swimming, and if your styling routine requires heat. Generally, our semi-permanent red hair dyes will appear saturated at first and fade gradually over time. To protect your hair color and keep it looking vibrant for as long as possible, shower with cool water and use our Fuschia Unicorn Hair Color Shampoo and Unicorn Hair Color Conditioner, which are specifically formulated to complement our damage-free red hair dyes.  

Does Red Hair Dye Stain?

While our semi-permanent dyes are formulated to transfer less than other dyes, we still recommend wearing gloves when dyeing to protect your hands. If dye does get on your skin, our color-removing wipes are a quick fix. Staining fabrics and hard surfaces, like your bathroom sink, is a possibility, too. To avoid accidentally transforming your bathroom into a scene straight out of a ‘90s slasher flick, cover up any surfaces you want to protect against accidental drips and spills.

Finally, keep in mind that minor color transfer is common, especially with freshly-dyed wet hair. Use an old towel you don’t mind staining for the first few showers with your new hue, and dry your mane thoroughly before getting dressed or going to bed.
