Choosing the best technique for you and your white coverage

Semi-permanent hair dye options
“For locks that are about 20 to 25 percent gray, use a semi-permanent / Demi pennant , hair color that’s closest to your natural tone to blend away the greys.
Both types deposit color into your hair without ammonia; however, the demi-permanent color uses a stronger concentration of hydrogen peroxide to open up the hair cuticle and inject more color. As a result, demi-permanent color lasts almost twice as long as semi-permanent. Semi-permanent color delivers a rich, shiny color, but fades out in six to 12 shampoos.”
At the salon we have two ranges silky and nouvelle
Nonpermanent products can be a good way to get started with blending those greys away .
“Semi-permanent color will not completely color gray, but can stain it enough to change your hair color or make it look like a highlight against the darker color,” she says. “After the color has disappeared at the end of six to eight weeks, the client will have a better idea of the possibilities available to them in professional service .
These colours add amazing shine and can soften the hair .

Permanent hair dye
“There are some clients whose greys will get covered very well by demi-permanent color, but it gets to the point where they get more greys and it doesn’t cover,”Most permanent colors contain ammonia, which opens the hair cuticle to allow color to penetrate much deeper than without it.”
We chose to stock silky as it contains a much lesser amount of ppd ‘s so there for much kinder to the client.’
Having worked as a educator for Loreal , myself and my team have various trick to use to ensure 💯 coverage on white Hair.
There are many more techniques , than just applying a chosen root colour to the clients hair .
White Hair is like glass , transparent and hard to crack .
Every clients hair is different & the same clients Hair obviously changes . So new methods s need to be tried .
To get a blended line from white to regrow the line , we suggest a client goes slightly lighter . This defuses the line & often prevent s the natural skin colour from looking sallow.

Highlights and lowlights
“If hair is long enough, you can try a ‘light’ highlight, a small concentration of highlights around the problem area,”Usually grey is noticed most around the area of the part. You can add a few highlights along the part to break up the gray.”
Highlights or lowlights can also keep hair from being monochromatic, causing it to appear fuller, By choosing colors that flatter your natural hair color, the end result is that your hair will appear to have more dimension. It will create the illusion of lift

When it’s time to reassess your hair dye colour & colouring habits.

“Be honest with yourself.
Do you need to be a blonde in your mid-40s or would a more subtle color, closer to your natural color, better suit? Ask your stylist to be honest, too. ‘Is this a good colour and look for you.

Be aware of how colour treatment can affect hair. “Any time you apply a chemical to the hair there will be some damage,” But if your colourist uses hair color properly, there should be minimal damage to the hair.”
Also with olaplex added to colour applications this stabilise s the process .
Home care is super important to maintain colour fade and moisture content.
Always ask the stylist s what’s best to maintain your hair .
