The gray hairs appear in the rest of our hair when the cells that produce melanin, which is the natural color of hair, begin to weaken in their work.
There are many products designed to cover gray and rejuvenate our appearance or change our look.
There are three types of dyes, depending on the composition: permanent means, semi-permanent and permanent. The first two classes are less aggressive for our hair because it does not contain ammonia or peroxide. Our hair is healthy, uniformly covers the length and the color and brightness withstand several washings. But if our goal is to cover gray hair, we opt for permanent dyes. You do contain chemicals (peroxide and ammonia) that deal with open hair cuticles to penetrate, thus achieving greater success in covering the gray.
When coloring hair must follow the product instructions: Apply to roots, act as in the indicated time (usually 20 minutes) and then spread the dye to hair length. One tip is to massage the scalp after this step to ensure that the hair to breathe and absorb better and homogeneous color.
Once all the hair dyed and you can keep alternating the type of dye, it did not punish so often. Here you can opt for semi-permanent dyes like tone on tone lining the hair without changing its structure, or ammonia-free toners (such as L’Oreal Paris Casting or ColorSilk of Revlon), designed to cover gray hair and give lighting reflexes or feeling, rather than a solid color stain.
The other option is to welcome the gray and grizzled look to exploit, or so called Salt-n-pepper-style gloss and taking care of our hair and giving it your personal touch.
