Grey Hair Coverage Basics

What Causes Grey Hair?

As you age, it is natural for your hair to turn grey. As we age, the level of melanin in your cells starts to deplete and without this pigment, new hair strands grow lighter in colour. Everyone develops grey hair at different rates, and silver strands can even start appearing very young for some. The most common reason for turning grey prematurely is vitamin deficiencies. Research has shown that stress can also damage hair and lead to it turning grey. The darker your hair, the more obvious these grey strands will be.

Grey Hair is Different

It’s a fact: Grey hair is harder to colour. That’s because it’s more coarse and, therefore, more difficult for hair colour to penetrate the follicle. The solution? Choose a hair colour formula specifically made for grey coverage and follow the timing instructions to a T! Both Nutrisse and Olia are great options for standard grey coverage as both formulas offer 100% grey coverage. If you have stubborn greys that regular colour just doesn’t seem to work on, try Nutrisse.

Applying Hair Colour to Cover Greys

When applying hair dye to cover grey hairs, ensure complete saturation of stubborn greys. Following application, massage or comb a second application of hair colour into any resistant strands before following regular timing and rinsing instructions.
