Best Ways to Cover gray hair

1

Find a temporary solution

If you only need to cover your gray hair for a short time, maybe a wedding or other special event, you may be able to get away with only concealing, and not covering, your hair.

A smart hat or fascinator can make a lovely accessory and pull a whole look together. This is the best temporary solution as it's stylish and very easily removable with almost no chance of malfunction.

Another solution if hats aren't an option, is temporary hair color. There are many products out there that can cover your hair for a day or two, usually in the form of sprays. They're easy to use too: simply spray over the parts that you'd like to conceal and you're done. Just be careful of stray beads of sweat or color transfer onto your hands.

Use hair dye

If you’re looking for a more permanent solution for your stubborn grey hairs, you can try dyeing your hair to cover them up. It will last longer than other temporary methods so that you don’t have to worry about it constantly. You can choose to dye your hair at home, but I recommend having a salon professional take care of it. Box dye can be extremely damaging for your hair. Make sure you take care of colored hair appropriately.

Using a box dye

Using a box dye is much cheaper than going to a salon, much more discreet, and if you know what you're doing, can be just as effective. The trick is to follow the instructions exactly, have a steady hand, and be patient.

It is highly recommended, though not entirely required that you use some simple tools: a rattail comb, a couple alligator clips, and a hair application brush can help you to be much more precise with your dye job.

Before you start, test a small amount of hair dye on a small patch of skin to ensure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients. Also, it is best to not wash hair for a couple days prior so that small amounts of oils can build up in your scalp and protect your hair from damage.

On the big day, separate your hair into sections, using the end of the rattail comb to separate, and then securing with alligator clips.

Then, mix the hair dye and developer according to the manufacturer's instructions. Make sure you follow the instructions exactly or you could do more damage than good.

Then, using the hair application brush, apply the hair dye to your grey hairs and let sit as per the manufacturer's instructions. Rinse out until the water runs clear and follow with shampoo and conditioner.
