What’s the Best Way to Survive the Grow-Out Stage?
The two-tone fix.No one wants to see that harsh grow-out line between the two shades.Your stylist may recommend highlights and lowlights to help the gray hair blend in. New techniques and styles like balayage and ombre will heighten the modern, fresh look with the mix of natural colors.
Find the perfect color.Your gray hair comes with its own natural hues.Your stylist will match the highlights to your skin tone to make sure that your new hair style will be complimentary.
Haircut styles.Consider short.This is your chance to try something new and different.Trending popular, short hairstyles are modern and stylish AND speed up the transition process.If you decide later that a medium length hairstyle is better, you can always grow it out.
What About Those Texture Changes in Gray Hair?
Naturally gray strands tend to change the texture of your hair.Gray hair tends to be dryer, and may have a life of its own.You can combat the coarseness with salon protein keratin and deep conditioning hair treatments.Most hairdressers recommend that you condition your hair more frequently.The additional TLC will be a small price to pay for your gorgeous shiny gray hair.
For those who have fine hair, the rougher cuticle and denser feel of strands produces a thickening volume. Nice benefit.
