How I hide my greys


Don't dare read this post and think "What greys!? You're young!". I have been unlucky enough to be going grey since I was about 14. My natural hair is almost jet black so not only is it a huge annoyance, it also is hugely noticeable! I have to get my hair colour touched up every 4-6 weeks which is both a pain and hugely expensive. I am so proud of my hair and how much it has grown in the past year but at the 3-4 week mark, my silver glitter starts to grow. My hairdresser estimated that I am 20% grey (*sob*) and this tends to show in my parting rather than around my hair line. Apart from wearing my hair up when I need a visit to the hairdressers, I have found that Bumble & Bumble Black Hair Powder has been a miracle. When I want to wear my hair down but the greys are all I can look at, I spray a light layer of this on my parting. This powder is hugely pigmented so be careful where you spray it! I like to seal it in with a layer of hairspray so I'm not left with black fingernails if I forget and touch my hair! 

Overall, this is the best thing I have found to cover my greys. Let me know how you like to cover your greys in the comments below or on Twitter @GemmaLEBond.
