I might be able to help, but I'm confused about what you did. What did you mean when you said you beached your hair a light red? If you bleached, it would be a shade of gold/yellow depending on your starting color and the volume you used. So did you use a color to get your hair reddish brown, and then added the semi red dye for an extra pop? Also, was your hair color treated before you went red? There are ways of getting changing your color without bleaching, but it depends on what you've already done to your hair. If I can figure that out, I might be able to point you in the right direction.
