Use deep-conditioning hair products one week prior to your hair dyeing process. By this, you'll ensure that your dark red hair color stays longer on your locks, and that your hair is well nourished and less damaged after the coloring job.

Apply the dark red hair dye of your choice, closely following the instructions on the package. After leaving the dark red hair dye on your locks for the required amount of time, rinse your tresses with lukewarm water. Too cold or too warm water may alter the final shade of your dark red hair.
