Sophisticated Redhead

This sophisticated red found on an  homepage of one of the very largest hair color producers. Which one? I do not find it now. I would die to have that color and those locks. Would by as a wig if I could afford it.

As my hair goes paler and thinner, am pondering a wig. Mourning sooo much my warm soft brownish red fading away! Thought would  color with some brownish orange, but golden brown will do for now. Have a dark golden brown and a light golden brown, so will be using one of those soon.

Maybe I’ll color for now and then save money to buy a wig later! This feels like the best choice and make me feel lighter at heart.

By the way, a good tip for buying wigs is to spend money on a real one. Real hair wigs you can treat like your own hair. Wash it, style it, put lotions and creams in it, cut it – if you will.  But I should not go near any scissors if I had one I was really contented with. That case, better start saving to some other one, if you want to change coiffeures!

I very much warn against wigs made of synthetics. They are cheaper, but first and foremost they can be unbearably warm. My sister, deceased since 1989, bought a wig when her hair fell off because of cancer treatments. She said she could not afford a real one, so bought one cheap synthetic. But could not stand wearing it as she went too warm and then choose to be bald headed till her hair began to grow again.

Secondly, read a page yesterday, stating the synthetic wigs: cannot be washed, cannot be treated in anyway for styling. Really wortless. Ok, cheap, can afford more than one. But why spend money on trash you’ll have to throw away when they get dirty because cannot wash’em!  A real wig is quite expensive, but they last much longer.

Other good wig tip: wig will stay better put if the band that holds it put goes all way round your head. Measure your head circumference. Myself I have 58 centimeters. Most head wear, now talking hats and such, that is so called ”one size” will only go up to 57 cms, so you’ld better measure if you’re not sure a ”one size” is for you.

Det viktigaste när du väljer hårfärg är att du vet om du vill tona eller färga håret. Hårfärger och toningar är indelade efter nivå 1 – 3 vilket indikerar om det är en toning eller en permanent hårfärg.Nivå 1: Toning. Tvättas ut efter några tvättar.
Nivå 2: Toning. Håller i ca 6-8 veckor.
Nivå 3: Permanent hårfärg. Täcker grått hår.

Välj rätt färg
Nästan alla hårfärger är indelade efter siffror från 1-10, där 1 är svart och 10 är blond. En högre siffra ger alltså en ljusare färg. En hårfärg kan ha allt från 1-3 siffror för att indikera färg.

5.0: eftersom den hamnar mitt på skalan (mellan 1 och 10) är det en brun färg.
5.1: betyder att det är brunt med inslag av ask, alltså en kall brun färg. 5 = brunt, 1 = ask.
5.3: betyder att det fortfarande är en brun färg men med inslag av guld. 5 = brunt, 3 = guld.

Om en hårfärg har 3 siffror kan det se ut så här: 713: 7 står för en ganska ljus färg, alltså blond, 1 står för ask, och 3 står för lite värme, i det här fallet beige.

  • Välj alltid en ljusare nyans, det blir ofta mörkare än vad man tror.
  • Tänk efter noggrant innan du väljer hårfärg, speciellt om du verkligen inte vill ha en rödguldig nyans.
  • Använd färgbevarande schampo och balsam efter att du har färgat. Annars riskerar färgen att tvättas ur snabbare.
  • Om du är osäker på färgen, prova en toning och testa dig fram istället för att använda en permanent hårfärg

Hårfärger Blonda och Röda

Too red to be a real blonde. Too blonde to be red-haired. Almost auburn but blonder. Almost golden, but redder.

Chestnut hair = Kastanjebrunt: RödBrunt, mera Brunt än Auburn. hair color which is a reddish shade of brown hair. In contrast to auburn hair, chestnut is more brown, and it is often referred to as ”chestnut brown”. The pigments that cause the coloration of chestnut hair are frequently brown eumelanin with stronger levels of pheomelanin.

Auburn = oxå RödBrunt, men då Rödare än Kastanjebrunt. is a variety of red hair, most commonly described as reddishbrown in color. Auburn hair ranges in shades from medium to dark. Like brown hair, it is common with a wide array of skin-tones and eye-colors, but as is the case with most red hair, it is commonly associated with light skin features. The chemical pigments that cause the coloration of auburn hair are frequently pheomelanin with high levels of eumelanin.

Kastanjebrunt: brunt med rödgult i,  pheomelanin =rödgult,  with high levels of eumelanin = mörktbrun/svart som det dominerande pigmentet. Brunt med rödgult i.

Auburn: rödgult med brunt i,  eumelanin =mörkbrunt/svart,  with stronger levels of pheomelanin=rödgult som det dominerande pigmentet.

Eftersom pheomelanin oftast finns tillsammans med väldigt ljus hy, typ 1, så lutar jag åt att jag har mer pheomelanin (rödgult) än eumelanin (mörkbrunt). Men jag har ändå inte auburn hårfärg som är mer rent rött i pigmentet än vad jag har. Tizianorött som är auburn. Venetianskt blont är den hårfärg som är mest likt min, sådant som Botticellis modell hade.

There are two types of melanin in mammals, the brownish black eumelanin and the reddish yellow pheomelanin.  13 Caucasian subjects of skin types I, II, and III a

The lowest concentrations of eumelanin were found in subjects of skin type I, with higher levels in skin types II and III. The concentrations of pheomelanin were more variable and showed no relationship to skin type.  Unlike eumelanin, epidermal pheomelanin also showed little relationship to PUVA-induced tanning.

”Auburn” can be used to describe many shades of reddish hair with similar definitions orhues. It is often conflated in popular usage with Titian hair. While Titian hair is a brownish shade of red hair, auburn hair is specifically defined as including the actual color red. Most definitions of Titian hair describe it as a brownish-orange color,[1][2] but some describe it as being reddish.[3] This is in reference to red hair itself, not the color red.

Auburn encompasses the color maroon, but so too do chestnut and burgundy. In contrast with the two, auburn is more red in color, while chestnut is more brown, and burgundy is more purple; chestnut hair is also often referred to as ”chestnut-brown”.
