Gray hair

The trick to getting to the gray hair, if you don’t have natural gray hair, is realizing that gray dye presents first as blue or purple, so the mission is to push past the disappointment of initial blue or purple. You can achieve gray hair with 5-7 shampoo washes after applying dye.

Step one: bleach with volume 20 developer and bleach powder, set for 25 min Tip: keep bleach in longer to get hair platinum or as light blonde that you can which reduces the brassiness that shows under the gray

Step two: rinse out, condition, wait a day or several between bleaching and dyeing Tip: to get out the blue or purple, I’ll shampoo my hair during the day 5-7 times

Step three: apply hair dye, leave on for 5 minutes before rinsing out

Here is the dye I found works best: L’Oreal Soft Silver Blond 8S.

I had some first attempts that didn’t work as great as I wanted.

First dye purchase was too blue, and in retrospect, I could have set it 10 minutes instead of the recommended 25 minutes to set the color

Next, I went to Sally Beauty store and the girl working there suggested the developer, bleach powder, and temporary hair dye, which was blue

This technique worked for me, it’s probably going to take some time to find the strategy that’ll work for you. Good luck on your hair journey!

Hello, my name is Hilary, and I often find myself wondering about the many mysteries of life. Life can be more productive and fun when I step back and interpret it as infinite refactoring for discovery and enjoyment. That being said, I enjoy learning about the existential crises of others and the creative strategies people use to achieve goals through barriers, challenges, and obstacles.
