Covering Your Grey Hair with Hair Color

 By: Sarika Kabra
Emma's grey hair has given her a better look. Surprised? Continue reading. In her early 30s, Emma had some of her hairs turning grey. Instead of getting worried, she consulted a good hair dresser and opted for the burgundy look and you know what. She started looking brighter and sexier than ever before.

Turning grey is a natural phenomenon that occurs in almost 90% of the population across the globe. If you want to cover your grey sheds just opt for a hair color based on your looks and texture and experience a new world of excitement. Hair color has identified itself as a cosmetic for the hair. Hair colors are of three types- Temporary Hair Color, Semi Permanent Hair Color and Permanent Hair Color. Depending upon requirement, you can select your type of hair color. If you want to color your hair for a party you may opt for temporary hair color or use semi permanent hair color if you want to enjoy a new look during the Christmas holidays. Opt for permanent hair color only when you are confident of the new look and want to keep it for long. People with gray hair often opt for permanent hair color.

Your style and persona may also feel a boost by use of hair color. It can even be used as a fashion statement. We can darken hair for a day or a month, brighten strands permanently, and even make raven-colored tresses as pale as sunlight. We can add lighter, brighter, or darker stripes, as well as cloak grey hair in the color it once was or paint strands in a kaleidoscope of rainbow-inspired shades. We can opt for hair color that gradually jades with time (and leaves no tell-tale roots) or color that stays with the hair strand as it grows out.

Today, a large number of hair dyes are available in the fashion stores and the parlors. It is one of the cheapest options for getting rid of grey hair. To sport a hair color that suits your style, consult an expert. A good hairdresser will tell you exactly what you need, and they will have the skills required to target the grey hairs and get a subtle finish. Use only standard colors to prevent allied problems like dandruff.

There are people in whom grey hairs appear only at the temples. Such type of problems can be done away with by having some color combed through them by your hairdresser. This may not cover your grey in totality, but it will certainly blend it with your natural color. This also gives you a chance to experiment with dying your hair.

People with light to heavy spread of grey flecks in their hair should consult a hairdresser for putting in some low lights. A tone that matches your natural hair color without completely covering it or making it flat and artificial looking should be chosen. Remember, the dye is simply to dim the grey hairs so that they have the appearance of a natural highlight.

When it comes to covering your full head of grey, you have to opt for a full hair dye. While doing at home, opt for a hair color that matches with your natural hair color or is slightly lighter than it. Opt for a permanent dye only when you are confident about its coloring as it is going to last for more than ten to fifteen washes.

Color your strands of grey rather than getting worried about them, unless of course you are too young to have them. Consult your hair dresser and opt for the first coloring by them to understand the basics. Thereafter, you may continue doing it at home too. Hair color may stay for long depending upon the type you select for yourself.
