You may not be ready to commit to the silver fox look. We can’t all be as confident as George Clooney! So how do you manage those pesky traitors, without trying to turn the clock back?
Read up on our tips on camouflaging your grey hair without committing to permanent colour.
KEEP IT SHORT
Grey hair usually has more of a course texture, so it can look wiry when grown out.
Yonny at Live True London hair salon Clapham suggests choosing a short or close cut which won’t accentuate your grey hairs and leave you looking clean and polished.
Have one or two greys you need to cover but aren’t quite ready to start making regular trips to the salon? Cover up with a Josh Wood blending wand, leaving your hair looking more natural, or use Just for Men’s Touch of Grey to achieve that more pepper and less salt look.
TOUCH UP WITH SEMI-PERMANENT COLOUR
Semi-permanent colour is a great way to cover grey hairs. The colour gradually fades over 3-4 weeks and won’t leave your dealing with any pesky re-growth lines. When you are ready to commit to sporting a head full of grey, just simply let the dye wash out.
WORK WITH YOUR GREYS
Mike at Live True London hair salon Vauxhall suggests you work with your greys. Cover up areas of grey with a dark semi-permanent colour (if you don’t wish to have a full head of colour) or bleach pieces blending in any grey hairs and creating a multi-tonal look.
SHAMPOO FOR GREY HAIR
Once you have embraced your grey look, ensure you use a grey hair shampoo. This will reduce yellow tones in the hair that can result from water or any pollutants. We love Redken for Men Silver Charge Shampoo. It is enriched with steel lock technology, leaving hair feeling invigorated, smoother and more manageable with healthy-looking silver shine.
