Help! I want to dye my hair...

I'm trying to dye my hair a dark red but I have questions. I don't want to permanently dye it but I want to know if you still have to bleach it for semi permanent dye. And I want to know that when the dye wears off, will my hair be back to its natural color(if I bleach it)? I'm trying to dye my hair at least 2-3 times a year. I'm sorry to be a pest but I know nothing about dying hair

Dying your hair red, any shade, without bleaching will only tint your hair. Once the color wears off, your natural color will be restored. Bleaching your hair lifts the natural color so you can deposit color such as red. Bleaching permanently takes color out of your hair.
