Christina Hendricks On Cover Of 'Lucky': Why She Went Red At Age 10 And Why YOU Should Be A Redhead Too!

Who knew the ‘Mad Men’ actress is a natural blonde and you’ll never guess who gave her the craving for red hair. We reveal all and tell you how to go ravishing red!

Christina Hendricks reveals that she has been dying her hair since she was ten years old with the help of her mom! See why and get top tips for going (and staying) red from celebrity hair colorist Joel Warren, of the Warren-Tricomi salon.

Christina explains that her red hair inspiration initially came from a childhood favorite.

“I was obsessed with Anne of Green Gables, so I wanted red hair,” Christina tells the mag. “My mom said, ‘I’ll throw a rinse on it.’”

Dying her hair all these years must be trying on those red strands! I asked Joel his advice on how to maintain a bright color for a long period of time.

“Always maintain your hair with products that are best for your hair. I only use INOA by L’Oreal Professional on my clients,” says Joel. “It is the first ammonia free professional hair color . It leaves the hair in better condition than if you didn’t color it. My philosophy is the condition of the hair is as important as the color.”

Christina is a natural blonde, that’s now known as a classic redhead (just like Emma Stone!). As a naturally dark-haired woman, I want to know if anyone can get such a vibrant shade.

“There are no limits today with hair color, anybody can basically be any color,” explains Joel. “It is the process to get there that is the most important part when making a big change.”

So can a girl with any skin tone try a fire engine red?

“Yes. Hair color should be fun, there are no rules in my book except it has to look hot and can’t compromise the condition of the hair.”

Now that’s something that everyone should agree with!

I would to have her hair, but this ammonia free hair dye is a joke. Not only is Loreal one of the largest cosmetic company’s still testing on animals, they blatantly lie to their consumers.
The L’Oreal INOA (named INOA for “Innovative No Ammonia”) line is advertised as a revolutionary new breakthrough in hair color that does not contain any ammonia. A simple read of the ingredients of several products in the line, including their pre and post shampoo, reveals that the line actually contains very high levels of “Ammonia Hydroxide”. If you look “Ammonia Hydroxide” up on Wikipedia, the first line explains that this is simply ammonia water!
There shampoo has sulfates and parabens, its everything but healthy for your hair!
What a joke, please read your labels.

as a hairstylist that uses this product daily on multiple people I can honestly say the INOA color is magnificent. I love it. You can feel the difference after just a few processes where the hair feels as though it has never been colored.
The one thing I love about L’Oreal is that they cater to everyone. There is a strictly professional line that you can only get ahold of in a salon, they will never sell that off to your nearest CVS or walmart. But they have a lower quality for everyone else who doesn’t care too much for their hair of simply cannot afford it. Of course with many things, you get what you pay for… INOA is worth every penny, a trillion times better then their non profession stuff. give it a try!
