What hair coloring do I need for gray hair?

If you have color-treated hair, such as purple hair for example, you will probably notice when your outgrowth turns gray. People are often shocked when they turn gray, but there is no need to be. You can dye your hair completely gray, but dying over it is also an option. If you choose the second option, you will of course want to know how best to go about coloring your hair. It is recommended to go for a lighter hair color when you start to get gray. This will make the outgrowth not stand out at all in the end. Choose for example light purple hair or light blue hair. These colors also match with gray outgrowth. 

Gray outgrowth is not the only reason to dye your hair light. In fact, the older you get, the more the color of your face changes. Therefore it probably looks better if you dye your hair lighter. But if you choose dark purple hair or black hair? Then the gray outgrowth will stand out. And this is annoying, because then you have to go back to the hairdresser in no time. Be careful when dyeing your hair. It is not the intention that you go from dark to light blond in one go! This way your hair will break off in the long run. 

What hair color do I need for outgrowth?

If you dye your hair more often, you're familiar with it: outgrowth. The annoying thing about outgrowth is that it becomes visible after only 4 to 6 weeks. This makes it likely that you will need to go to the hairdresser at least every 2 months or so. It is advisable to have your outgrowth dyed in the same color as the rest of your hair. Would you rather dye your outgrowth yourself? Then this is also possible. There are several stores and websites that sell hair dye. It is important that you ask your hairdresser in what color exactly your hair is dyed. It would be a shame if your outgrowth turns dark pink while you have purple hair. Of course it's even easier if you dye your hair yourself. Then you know exactly what color dye you need.  

 What is the difference between hair color and hair dye?

As indicated earlier, there is a difference between hair coloring and hair dyeing. Therefore, below I will explain to you exactly what these differences are:

Hair dye

Do you want to dye your hair permanently? Then it is advisable to choose hair dye. Hair dye appears to last for a longer time, while this is not the case with hair coloring. If you choose this option you will have to dye your outgrowth every 4 to 6 weeks. This prevents a clear outgrowth in your hair. Often people choose hair dye if they want their whole hair in a different color. For example, do you want completely purple hair? Then this is definitely the best choice.

Hair coloring

Do you want to dye your hair temporarily? Then you can choose hair coloring. Hair coloring disappears a little bit after each wash. As it were, your hair coloring just washes out. After a few washes your hair color is completely gone. It differs per type of hair coloring how long the color remains beautiful. Would you like to have purple hair for a few weeks? Then you can choose hair coloring. You do not have to dye your hair a new color when you are tired of the color. So you could say that this is also the best choice for your hair.
