Seeing Red

Red hair color fades the fastest.

Verdict: True

If youre a salon-assisted ginger, you mightve noticed that your bright auburn lessens in intensity after a month or so. Youre not imagining things. When exposed to water, all dye molecules diffuse out of the hair a bit. But, since red ones are smaller than brown or black molecules, they slip away faster (blondes dont have to worry about shade fade bleaching removes melanin altogether, so theres no hue to lose). This is one myth we wish was false!
