When You Want Total Grey Coverage

Written by

A lot of women really need to start to get a full hair-color when they begin to turn gray. As a person ages, the body loses pigment everywhere. Some of the hair that does not actually turn grey tends to lose its’ warmth and becomes drab. For some women, that lusterless look is the turning point, and may be when they finally make the decision to have an all over color done.

When you want total grey coverage, you want to know that you are going to look younger and more beautiful. You need to know that gray hair is not all bad. It is just another phase of life. Some women have had one hair-color their entire life, and now it`s time for a new one. You need to look at it as an exciting change. Grey hair has its own personality and it is usually uncooperative. Its’ texture can be coarse, stubborn, and unruly, making it resistant to even professional hair color. Here are some professional tips to ease your mind and to help you return your color to its pre-grey condition.

  1. When you begin your coloring process, make sure your stylist first applies the color to the areas where your hair may be most difficult to color. This is usually at the front hairline and at the natural part in your hair.
  2. Make sure you completely saturate your hair with color and comb it through to make sure it is spread evenly. It may even be beneficial to comb it through after it sets for 10 minutes to ensure that all your grey hair is fully covered.
  3. When your stylist  finishes applying, they should go back to your resistant areas and put even more color on the color-resistant areas.
  4. You can also use a plastic cap to cover your hair and trap in the heat. Heat accelerates the process.
  5. Give your hair a little more time to absorb the color. At Salon F we always add an extra 10 minutes to resistant hair.
  6. Sometimes your grey hair just will not cooperate, you may have to drop down a color level for your overall color, and use something darker on your roots to deliver more coverage.
  7. Put hair color on your calendar as a recurring event. Once a month is the unwritten rule for time in between applications to maintain maximum coverage. The more you color, the better the texture of the grey hair will become. After all you want your hair to become softer and more receptive to the hair color.

If you’d like a hair color that doesn’t mirror your natural shade, such as warm reds, plums or a copper hair color then don’t forget to take your mature skin tone into account. It may mean that those types of hair colors are now too harsh.

Never assume that a few greys mean that you will need to go with a full head cover up. Permanent hair color can be strenuous to hair, which gets thinner and more fragile with age. A less damaging semi-permanent color or strategically placed highlights could be all the color help you need to keep your grey under wraps without risking excessive hair damage.

There are lots of color options to choose from when covering greys become a priority. If you ever have any questions then you should come in for a consultation with one of our professional hairstylists that specialize in hair color. Getting good information will go a long way to helping you choose the right hair color and color method for you. We want you to get a beautiful result that you will absolutely love.
