   A few days ago I attempted to dye my natural hair with Intense Red from Loreal HiColor for Dark Hair. It looks like I used a red rinse. No lift at all and I used a 30 Developer.

   I am going to try again with a honey blonde or light red box color because I know it will lift my hair, even though it will be brassy.  I want the hair to show red......so I need more lift, but I don't want very light roots later on with darker ends....which is why I am thinking that I need to remove some of the red.  Will dying with a more powerul lift help me achieve these results? I may have to use a demipermanent dye or rinse later to even it out, but I want the color to show.

No, trying to use haircolor to lighten previously dyed hair doesn't work. You'll have to use an actual hair lightener (aka hair bleach) or use a technique called a "soap cap" or "bleach bath".

I've used HiColor in red and magenta and I would recommend those over the intense red depending on the look your going for. Personally I would just do another application if the loreal...or u could do something like manic panic leave it on for two hours instead of the recommended time.
