For the first time in my life I will have to consider covering my gray hairs. Thankfully its my only sign of aging. I’ve never had to do this before but the thought of ghastly white hairs sticking out of my updo irks me. Do those wash and rinse things work or shall I go to a colorist?

I had my first grays in my 20s. No big deal. Color. My hair is brown, so I do highlights and low lights instead of just all over brown color, so when the roots start showing, they are more blended with the highlights.
I’ve tried both the salon and the at home do it yourself. I prefer the salon. The salon is five times the cost… but not when you consider that spilling dye on the marble tile costs five hundred times the trip to the salon!
Truly, I look foward to when I’m in my 60s and am all gray. I think older women with all gray long hair look so sophisticated, classy, refined, and sexy. Until then, though, I will color so I don’t have them contrasting my dark hair!

how to cover grays? professionally and with bleach!! I’ve started getting blonde highlights to cover my new gray streaks. Still, those suckers are resiliant.

I say salon. I know there are small things of hair mascara that can be used, but I’m not sure if it wears off on things and would end up coloring your veil or something like that.
Also, you can get salon treatments to make your hair look super shiny and healthy.

Well Kankawed I have tried Roux Fanci-Full color styling mousse. Would would not recommend it. It seemed like my grays repelled the color. There are colorstick that can cover a few grays. However if your grays hair is more diffuse you should go the the salon and get a demi-permnant hair color. If you have never color your at home now is not the time try.

@chuckles: See my concern is I have a nice hair color, my hair is naturally healthy and shiny, but with the occasionally strays of gray. I’m almost tempted to wait till the last hour pluck the long ones. I just don’t want to permanently damage or change my natural hair color!

i think i’d use the wash and go if i were you. they are much gentler than what salons use.
