Grey hair: when should you start using colouring treatments?

It's a well-known fact: if you have decided that you want to cover the few grey hairs that have begun to appear in your locks, giving you that salt and pepper look, you will more than likely resort to using colouring treatments. However, at which point should you really start colouring your hair when it has gone grey? Here is the answer.

When you feel the need

At a time when grey hair is bang on trend and is being proudly embraced, moving onto the colouring stage is no longer "automatic". If you decide to fully embrace your grey locks, there is no need to colour them. However, if your first grey hairs bother you, it is best to cover them from the outset. If this is the case, tone-on-tone colouring is an option. Similar to your base colour, it conceals any silver-coloured locks so that only you know that they are there. To forget about your grey hairs, temporary colouring also gives a good result, though it is short-lived. However, other solutions exist, such as colouring shampoos. Also, if you are blonde, highlights will even out your hair without going for a full coverage colouring treatment.

When you have over 50% grey hair

From a purely practical point of view, the moment you go mostly grey is when you should start using permanent colouring treatments so that your hair does not look unkempt. It provides greater coverage than other treatments and is ideal for saying goodbye to the many grey hairs that are spoiling your base colour.

When you feel ready to take on the upkeep of a colouring treatment

Making your grey hairs disappear also involves getting regular touch-ups to the colour, as the growing-out roots look is even more visible. This is a commitment that should not be taken lightly when deciding whether or not to colour your hair!
