The only thing worse than a gray, cloudy day is a day starting out with cloudy-looking GRAY HAIR! But when it comes to coloring that gray and making it go away, you really want a hair care specialist who can give you that authentically youthful look you want. You need the right hair-color products and an expert stylist who knows what they’re doing to makes those grays go away. In a pinch though, here are four important tips to remember.
TIP #1: GO WITH A PERMANENT HAIR COLOR
To color gray hair, one option is to use a permanent hair color. FRAMESI’S NN SERIES is an excellent way to go. It’s specially formulated to cover 100% of that gray and comes in a variety of shades. Blonde hair, brown hair, black hair or red, Framesi’s covers them all. From their line, you can easily find your own personal best match. Whether your hair is a super-light blonde or closer to a deep brunette hue, Framesi’s has the perfect match for you.
TIP #2: DON’T FORGET THE HIGHLIGHTS
Let’s say yours is a lighter hair color. You can beat the graying effect of your lighter locks by having your hair-color professional add highlights to your color. Those strategic highlights will give you a more fun, natural look.
TIP #3: LIGHTEN UP!
Your hair color, that is. You want to look younger? (Hey, who doesn’t?) Then keep in mind that very dark hair color, especially black, tends to intensify the appearance of and draw attention to fine lines and wrinkles. (And I know you don’t want that.) Here’s a neat little solution. Rather than trying to to match your current hair color exactly, especially if your hair is naturally dark, try a permanent hair color that’s one or two shades lighter. This little secret will not only help your hair look brighter, but your spirits will be brighter, too. You’ll get a more naturally youthful look, all the way round.
TIP #4: TEMPORARILY CONCEAL YOUR GRAY HAIR
Even those people who’re most diligent with dyeing their hair, chances are, those sneaky gray hairs have been caught peeking though their roots from time to time. (Not a pretty picture, is it?) One day, your hair may look flawless and the next? Those gray roots may look an inch long. (And we can’t have that.) When that happens and you don’t have time to color your hair again for a few days, but don’t want your gray hair on display, don’t panic. It doesn’t mean you have to hide your locks beneath a hat all day. All you need for an easy fix is a temporary root cover-up spray. L’Oreal Paris Magic Root Cover Up will save the day. Spray it directly onto new hair growth and just partway through the length of your hair, to blend in. Once those roots are covered, your little camouflaging secret will last through your next shampoo. Be sure to stock up on your favorite boxed color because when those gray roots start to show, you sure don’t want to be showing them off.
These were just a few tips to help keep your gray…at bay. A few gray-covering tips you can do at home. But remember, to get the best effect at covering that gray hair, do make an appointment to see your hair color specialist. That would be me. I’m ready to make your own gray, gray...GO AWAY.
