Hair averages approximately a half-inch of growth every month. If you have gray hair, this half-inch may seem like it appears instantly after your most recent coloring. This is especially true if you have dark hair. If you normally dye your hair once a month, staring at the grays while you’re awaiting your next appointment can be frustrating. Fortunately, hair color pens are available in a variety of shades to retouch your hair color and temporarily cover your grays.
Wash your hair with your regular shampoo. Rinse and dry your hair as normal.
Part your hair as you normally would using a comb or brush. Remove the cap from the applicator pen.
Twist the applicator, releasing the hair color onto the felt tip. Dab the tip onto a tissue to remove excess.
Paint the hair color onto your grays using long, sweeping motions. Pay special attention to the gray hair located at your part and around your hairline.
Replace the top on the hair color applicator. Allow the hair color to set for five minutes before brushing or putting on a hat.
