While we’re all in self isolating-mode and the possibility that it might get extended, many people are starting to panic and become somewhat desperate to hide those sneaky greys appearing. Instead of taking matters into your own hands and preventing a major colour correction once we’re back to normality, why not try or even consider some of my disguising tips.
If you have blonde hair, highlighted or light in colour, try to mess up your parting. Avoid having a structured or distinct parting or even try and wear your hair more back if its longer and more forward if its short ( the latter also applies to darker hair).
By creating a bit more volume you can distract the eye and make the regrowth less noticeable. If it gets to the point where you’re about to click and buy a ‘home colour’ rather direct your search to a root spray in your shade or close as you can.
Root sprays are a lifesaver, especially in times like this or when you’re on holiday and find yourself with a regrowth and greys shinning at you. These sprays are not permanent and literally sits on the hair. Make sure your hair is clean and already blow dried before you apply the spray, it is advised to shampoo this from the hair at the end of the day because some of these root sprays can leave a residue on your bedding and even your hands if you run them through.
A few examples of these sprays worth checking out are; Kevin Murphy Retouch.me / L’oreal Paris Magic Retouch / Batiste Dry Shampoo.
Another trade trick is to apply some dry shampoo to create a more messy and unstructured finish, especially if your hair isn’t too grey or your regrowth too noticeable! Perhaps use this time of ‘lockdown’ to give the hair a little rest and concentrate on regular treatments, avoiding heat styling as much as you can. Hopefully we’re all going to have healthy hair post lockdown, due to the lack of over styling or excessive colouring.
