Your salt has taken over the pepper! No worries, the pros have your back. Best of all, you’ve got tons of options…
Want to keep your natural color minus the grays? The key is to stay within 2 levels of your natural hair when choosing your shade. On the other hand, if your hair is naturally medium brown or darker, it’s best to stick to your shade. Dark brown and black hair tends to make our skin tone look a little harsh after we hit our 50’s. Also, it’s easier to go darker if you don’t like your color than to go lighter. Lifting color requires more work! So take baby steps until you reach your color goal. We suggest: Age Defy. The shade collection is filled with natural tones and provides 100% gray coverage. Bonus, it’s got a pre-treatment to help fight the 7 signs of aging hair, leaving you with gorgeous color that looks up to 10 years younger.
Avoid anything with “ash” as it can add a gray effect to hair.
Get ready for a change
Alternately, now is the best time to go blonde! Why? When you have pigmented hair and want to go more than 2 levels lighter than your virgin hair, brassy results are inevitable. But on gray hair, you already have the perfect base for depositing your blonde color. This makes for a color result more like what you see on the model on the box. Even if you have a small amount of pigmented hair, it will provide an overall blended and natural result. But don’t forget, gray hair can be stubborn so it’s important that you use a permanent color. Try: Nice’n Easy for 100% gray coverage. When you’re ready to color, the processing time on the box says 25 minutes but the color can actually be left on for up to 45 minutes for stubborn grays! When choosing your perfect blonde shade, look for “neutral” in the shade description on the box. The underlying tones in the color give the softest result on gray hair and the pigmented hair will lighten well too. Avoid anything with “ash” as it can add a gray effect to hair. Yikes! Totally opposite of what you want.
