Aug 14, 2008
Few things in life are certain however gray hair is something most of us begin dreading and fighting back against by the time we enter our early thirties. Gray hair seems to begin with a few strands that sneak up on us. We diligently puck them out day after day until we come to the realization that if we keep pulling them all out we will not have any hair left at all.

Making the decision to color your hair does not mean that it has to be an all or nothing venture. There are many color options available that provide coverage and are fairly low maintenance. These options include demi and semi permanents colors, high lights, low lights, blending or foils, all of which will although you to ease into coloring especially if this is new to you.

Growing in popularity is the color option of blending; which is essentially using both high lights and low lights giving you a natural fresh look. This process is an attractive option because larger chunks of hair are colored starting close to the base which enables you to get away with less frequent touch ups.

Blending is also unique in that several different shades can be used to create deep rich color which gives the illusion of more shape and volume. To create a more youthful look use colors that are a few shades lighter than you natural color this will give you a sun kissed looked. Another option which is been seen more and more is with the use of foils going bold, the options are really endless which will allow you to find something that not only makes you look and feel great but that also captures your personality.

If you choose to use a full color ensure that you use proper maintenance protocol. Touching up the roots is essential, there is nothing worse then having an inch on new growth showing at the base of your hair. It is best to get your roots dealt with every four to six weeks depending on how fast your hair grows. Generally the average is about a half an inch per month. If you are coloring yourself do not try to save time by simply applying a new dose of color to your entire head of hair, this will lead to an uneven and unnatural appearance as well as cause unnecessary damage to the ends and over processed shafts of your hair.

Choosing to color your gray is only one option. If you decide to embrace your gray or white hair remember to use a violet or blue based shampoo to wash away the yellow. These specialized shampoos also help to maintain your hairs vibrancy and clarity making the dullness a that affects gray and white hair a thing of the past. Gray or white hair can be extremely attractive when it is worn with confidence and you have the proper hair cut, this does not mean that you have to get your hair all cut of and start using rollers. Many men and women look fantastic with their natural grey, silver or white hair. Talk to your professional stylist about your options and decide on a hair care option that works for you.
