What’s the difference between red and strawberry blonde hair?

It’s often difficult to tell the difference between red and strawberry blonde hair. In fact, most people confuse the two and say that one is the other without really knowing why. What makes our hair go a deeper red rather than a strawberry blonde color? The pros reveal all.
 
Red hair, like any other hair color, has many different shades and tones. ‘Red hair can have shades ranging from light strawberry blonde to mahogany colors, but it’s often difficult to tell the difference between the two, unless there are coppery reflections when light hits the hair. Red and strawberry blonde are simply two different shades from the same color palette.’
 
Strawberry blonde is lighter than red hair. ‘It’s extremely rare for people to have hair that is naturally a strawberry blonde color. Basically, strawberry blonde is mostly based on red tones, with blonde highlights dotted here and there. It takes its name from the Italian renaissance. During this period, women lightened their hair using lemon juice and saffron in combination with the sun’s natural rays of light.’
 
Strawberry blonde therefore belongs to the red hair group. ‘Strawberry blonde is the lightest shade of red hair. Other tones in this color group include mahogany, copper and Irish red. When somebody says they have strawberry blonde hair, they’re stating their shade of red. Blondes might do the same by stating they have ice-blonde hair, for example.
 
Our tip: Red hair is often much thicker than blonde or brunette hair. To take control of your red hair, use a hair mask for thick hair. You can also try using the Jean Louis David Colour therapy range at home to revive the color of your hair and hydrate it.
