There are a few tricks you should have up your sleeve. If your grey makes up 30-35% of your overall hair, you should opt for a temporary light color which will gradually wash out after each shampoo. You can do this every 6 weeks to provide a light and natural coverage of that pesky grey stripe down your parting’.
You may, however, be at a stage where you have more grey hair than your desired color. ‘If you want to hide your grey, you’ll need to head to your salon for a permanent color. This means committing to booking regular appointments to keep on top of root re-growth. You will choose your ideal color with the help of your stylist to maximize grey coverage’. The best thing about a permanent color? Greys are a thing of the past!
