Our Little Hair Color Secret…

In an ideal world, those of us who didn’t want grey hair could keep our natural color for as long as we’d like. But realistically, as we get older, the pigment cells in our hair follicles gradually die. Each hair follicle contains a certain amount of pigment cells that constantly produce a chemical called “melanin”. When those pigment cells begin to die, the strand of hair becomes a more transparent or grey/white color – the color lots of us women try to cover or blend because we’re not ready to surrender just yet.

The solutions?

  1. If your hair is darker, going lighter or adding dimension into your hair with highlights will help soften and blend in the grey. This way, it won’t appear as harsh and out of place.
  2. See your hair stylist every 4 weeks for a touch up.

We know that second solution is not ideal for most women for both time and financial reasons, so we introduce to you our latest secret weapon…
