White hairs: going back to your natural colour

Tired of having to colour your hair every month to hide white hairs? Ready to let them roam free? Fabulous! But you’ll have to be patient as the transition takes time. But it will be worth the wait.
 
When going back to your natural colour there will come the time when you have to let your roots show. “Firstly, to avoid a bold contrast, get your hair cut to get rid of as much coloured hair as possible. A bowl cut would do nicely, for example.” Especially seeing as the ends are the most sensitive part of your hair. So it’s best to get lots cut off so that your hairdresser can work easily with your hair.
 
Your hairdresser may also clean the hair to reduce the colour difference between your white roots and your ends. “For brunettes with a dark or medium base, the colour can be lightened so that the contrast between the brown and white hair is less obvious. This will help you withstand the wait.” If your hair is already light, the best thing to do is go for highlights. “At Jean Louis David we do what we call a Contrast. This technique will help conceal white hairs by blending them in with the rest of your hair.”
 
No matter what, colouring your whole head white is never a good solution. Far from it. “To dye the whole of your head white you have to strip your hair of its colour. This is not good for your hair. And anyway, you’ll never be able to achieve the same white as your white hairs. So it could end up looking a bit odd!”
 
Visit your hairdresser regularly during the transition to keep on top of your cut. “If you made the wise decision of cutting your hair, an appointment every 2 to 2 and a half months will do. The more you cut it, the more we’ll be able clean the hair and reduce the contrast.”
 
At home, use purple shampoo. And look after your mid-lengths and ends with shampoos and masks for coloured hair to keep them looking healthy.

Our tip: White hair doesn’t require any specific products, unless it tends to go brassy. If you start to notice this once all of your hair is white, use a purple shampoo treatment every three washes, alternating with products designed for your hair type.
