When we hear the name of this fruit, we think about its mesmerizing shade. You will find a ton of variations for maroon hair dye shades but generally, this specific maroon hair dye has a vibrant color base combination of red and purple tones.

How To Color Cherry Maroon Hair
Step 1: Comb your hair thoroughly especially if you have curly or wavy hair. Tangle-free hair will avoid you from having uneven maroon hair color dye results. By using a metal clip, section your hair. From your forehead to the nape of the neck, part your hair in the middle part by using a comb.
Step 2: To create two sections, comb the hair to one ear and drag it to the mid part. Repeat the same step for the other side. This is the basic form section split. But if you have thick hair then a six-section split will do.
Step 3: With the use of a tint brush, apply the maroon color mixture. Start on the roots and color down to the ends. Repeat this step until the full head is covered even your hairline. You can use a wide-toothed comb to ensure that you have even coverage. Make sure to apply Vaseline on your skin to avoid any skin stains.
Step 4: It is advisable that you only leave the maroon hair color dye on your hair for 20-30 minutes. But this will depend on how dark you wish for your hair.
Step 5: Never use hot or even warm water in rinsing your hair. Never apply any shampoo as well. To protect your hair and hair cuticle, apply a good after-color treatment. You can use the brand Ion for this one.
