The shampoos/conditioners made for red hair do help some! Matrix Shade Memory is the line I use, it's a shampoo, conditioner, and tinted mousse. The mousse comes in cool or warm for the tone of red you have. Always wash your hair in cool water, I use freezing cold water, and I can keep my color for close to 3 weeks that way! Only wash as often as you need to, if you can get away with every other day, do it! Never put conditioner near your scalp, just on the ends, and any styling product/shine serum as well.

Red is gonna fade, it is the hardest color to protect, you can give John Freida's red glaze a try, but the glaze is not deep enough in red dyes to even protect it. Its a color that you will have to continue to use a rinse on in order to keep it red and wash the hair as less as possible

I dye my hair red and no matter what you try it's gunna fade.
Using special shampoos for coloured hair or anti-fade shampoos and conditioners will help, I use John Frieda Colour Glaze too. What you do is wash your hair then get some of the colour glaze in your hands and run it through your hair with your fingers from the roots to the ends of your hair, leave it for a couple of minutes then rinse it out. I usually rinse my hair with cold water before I get out of the shower too.
Apart from that you can try leave in conditioners (Aussie have ones that protect colour) and heat defense sprays because if your hair looks more shiny and in better condition it won't look as faded.

I think Sunsilk has some specific products for red hair, but i don't know if it's for natural and/or colored hair.
