Going gray can be freeing. You no longer have to spend time getting frequent dye jobs to cover the gray. The cost of constantly washing away the gray can become cumbersome. Once you decide to go gray, there are things that you can do to ensure your silver style is successful.
According to the Prevention website, if you wait until at least 60 percent of your hair is gray before you stop getting it dyed, you will have an easier transition when you start your silver quest. If you decide to go gray before this point, you can use scarves, decorative hair ribbons and highlights to cover the sharp contrasts between your dyed hair and the gray roots you are growing out.
Put Cut Above Color
The Hair Finders website advises women going gray not to focus on the color more than the haircut. If you consider gray just another color on the hair color wheel, you can concentrate on choosing a hairstyle that flatters your face and works well with your lifestyle. Going gray will work best if you choose an appropriate cut. Making sure your cut is updated and current will also had style to your commitment to your gray hair.
Using a blow dryer and a flat iron on your gray locks will bring out the shine and softness. The low setting on the blow dryer will help you avoid making your hair’s texture too dry.
