Why does gray hair appear, how to paint it over or emphasize it correctly, and what the stars do about it - we look and understand with the top stylist of the Ryabchik hairdressing chain, Polina Denisova.
Three types of gray hair
Gray hair, that is, the absence of pigment in the hair, is age-related (appears after 35 years), congenital or premature.
Why can the first gray hair appear ahead of time?
There can be many reasons: malfunctions in digestion, problems with the thyroid gland, lack of iron and zinc in the body, impaired blood circulation in the area of hair growth, bad habits, chronic fatigue and lack of sleep. If you notice premature graying on yourself, it is recommended to make an appointment with a trichologist or nutritionist, especially if you are malnourished or are on strict diets.
If the gray hair is age
A good colorist will help you paint over or emphasize it, taking into account the individual characteristics of the appearance and structure of the hair. Based on how the gray hair is located, the master will select a staining technique.
Gray hair can be focal, when it is concentrated in one place, or friable, if gray - separate strands. It can be painted over tightly or tinted, creating a light "camouflage". If the gray hair is loose, toning will look more natural and even add visual volume to the hair. Another plus - unlike coloring, toning will allow you to tint the roots less often.
When the coloring is dense, it not only gives the effect of a wig, but also the regrown roots with it will be noticeable in 2-3 weeks. The higher the percentage of gray hair, the lighter choose a hair color, it should be close to platinum, so that there is no big contrast with the roots.
Gray hair care
Gray hair is usually dry, porous and "empty" - it needs deep nourishment. Be sure to use moisturizing balms, apply a mask 2-3 times a week, go to professional salon hair treatments, drink multivitamins. Special shampoos for gray or light hair will help get rid of yellowness. Due to the purple pigments, they neutralize the warm tone, the hair color becomes cleaner, transparent and radiant.
