How to Hide Gray Hairs

Never let them see you age with these simple solutions for hiding gray hairs.

Use these solutions to make your hair flawless:

  • Avoid severe styles: Stiff hair makes roots more obvious. Opt for less structured looks with volume and movement, and go with a jagged (not straight) part.
  • Camouflage grays between dye jobs: If you’re in a pinch, try a hair color marker to conceal regrowth. Skip tinted hair powders, which can make strands appear chalky.
  • Switch your formula: If you’re less than 25 percent gray, try a demi-permanent product. Unlike permanent varieties, this type of color gradually fades over 20 to 25 washes, so it won’t lead to telltale roots.
