Boise Hair Salon Gray Hair Color Solutions
Today, let’s talk about gray hair. For some women in the Treasure Valley, these pesky little strands of silver start to pop up in their late 20’s and quickly spread into our mid 30’s. For some lucky few, gray hair won’t show up until their 40 or even 50 years old.
Regardless of your age when they do show up, one thing’s for certain, they’re not going anywhere. That’s why you can stop pulling those single gray hairs that you find, whether or not you believe three will replace it. Furthermore, you don’t have to hide your hair beneath a hat or scarf either. At unDONE Salon, we have options to help you deal with the invasion of these pesky, unwanted gray hairs.
Gray Hair Coverage
Whether we like it or not, gray hair is a part of the natural aging process. In fact, genetics are a major contributing factor as to when you finally go gray. However, things like stress, poor health, and other factors play a role in how early gray hair appears. While some people are more willing to accept their gray hair, others may want to hide it with a natural looking or enhanced hair color.
Although we can’t stop the natural process of graying hair, it can be covered up at your Boise hair salon. Keep in mind that while many people think they can just go to the store and pick up a box of hair color, this is not a healthy, viable, or pretty solution. DIY hair color results can vary greatly from okay looking to absolutely horrible. Not to mention, you can seriously damage your hair in the process.
Furthermore, the process of coloring gray hair consists of careful color combination formulas that are best achieved by a professional hair stylist. Since gray hair doesn’t absorb hair color very well because it’s much coarser, it’s often considered “color resistant.” This is especially true in areas around your temples. Quite often, these areas of color resistant gray hair must be allowed to absorb hair color longer than what is recommended for normal hair.
Gray Hair Color Solutions
When it comes to coloring your gray hair, there are several options available. Understanding which option is right for you and how to properly approach the process should be left to a professional when it comes to achieving the desired look you want to achieve.
A popular approach to coloring gray hair is highlights. Highlights are a wonderful option because the hair color is diversified. Since gray hair is devoid of any color pigment, it will absorb hair color differently and often has a different contrast against your natural color. This, in turn, results in a better balanced, more natural look with minimal maintenance compared to all-over hairi color.
Permanent Hair Color
Permanent hair color provides a deeper penetration to gray hair follicles. Furthermore, if you choose this option, your Boise hair salon stylist may suggest selecting a lighter permanent color because it will look more natural and better resist strong contrast when new gray hairs appear at your roots.
Another option to covering gray hair is to utilize demi-permanent hair color. These dyes don’t have ammonia and won’t penetrate the hair shaft as deeply as a permanent hair color. Keep in mind, they also won’t lighten your natural shade. However, demi-permanent colors are a great way to blend gray hair for a subtle approach to hair coloring.
Whether you opt to embrace your gray hair or cover it up, there are a wide variety of hair color options to make the most out of your hairstyle. With so many color formulas available, you can either cover your gray completely or highlight your silver tresses with toned shampoos and color glazes, it’s really up to you.
