Gray Hair Styles And Cuts

At some point of time the individual has to accept the fact that the gray hair cannot be hidden anymore and also cannot be wished away and any amount of dye one uses it makes one to look unnatural.

So the time has come when we have to accept the realities of life and this we cannot postpone indefinitely. Earlier we accept this fact willingly, better it is to plan the necessary changes and we can go ahead.

One needs to wait till the roots are at least 60 percent gray before we stop using the dye so that the new gray hair hue looks symmetrical and natural as it grows. Initially the contrast in texture will make the hair look unkempt. During this initial phase which is going to last for a year or so a highlighting kit can be used to weave in darker streaks to add dimension and blend in roots.

Hair can be cropped above the collarbone during the transition phase to reduce the contrast between gray and pigmented strands. This can also camouflage multiple hues. A choppy cut can not only hide the roots it can also make the person look youthful. One should go for a contemporary cut to make gray to look glamorous and chick. The hair can be styled straight to promote shine. Once the hair becomes completely white, one can go in for an above the shoulder layered style to provide movement and also to get a soft frame for the face.

Moisturizing with shampoo to make the gray hair soft and smooth will be required to make it more lustrous. It needs to be washed once a week with a formula meant for gray to reduce the effect of yellowing by sun, pollutants, hard water and smoke. A gloss or glaze can be applied once a month to boost the shine.
