I dyed my hair red it was a nightmare – it took two years to look like myself again so here's what I wish I knew | The Sun

WE all love to experiment a little with our locks every once in awhile, but one woman who went from blonde to red has revealed the struggles she then faced for TWO YEARS trying to sort it.

Ashley Paige is a lifestyle and fashion influencer and recently took to TikTok to tell her hair horror story.


Though she is a natural blonde Ashley revealed she has previously dyed her hair red. 

Ashley said even though she loved her red hair, there were some things she wished she have been told before she made her transformation.   

In a video online she said: “This is what I wish someone told me before I dyed my hair red.”

Paige said: “Two years ago I did this pumpkin spice ginger colour and I was obsessed with it, but no one talks about how hard it is to remove red.”

Paige shares some stunning pictures from when she had dyed her hair auburn. 

But things were not all that they seemed as Paige struggled for years to get the colour out of her locks. 

She said: “It was such a vibe but I didn’t really feel like myself so I tried to go back to blonde after if you're not gonna keep you for at least a year I would say it’s absolutely not worth it.”

One said: “I thought it was common knowledge that removing red was practically impossible.”

Another added: “I kept red hair for 3 yrs….haven't dyed or cut my hair in 4…its still there.”

“I feel like every hairdresser I’ve ever had has warned about how impossible red hair dye is to remove,” another viewer quipped.
