What are people doing about their grey hair

I was wondering what other people are doing to cover their grey hair being that the salons are closed most places. I have now found out that the salon that I go to will be closed for April, so I need to find an alternative. I am scared to color my own hair.

 

Thanks

Re: What are people doing about their grey hair

I’ve colored my own hair for years but I am working from home and not going anywhere. It’s the last thing on my mind. When this is over I will color my hair and go out and have fun. Right now I am not stressed about my hair. I am older so it’s no big deal. No one to impress. I’m comfortable and just trying to stay healthy and worrying about my family and friends.

I color my own hair.   I find the color lasts longer if it do it myself.   Besides it's way cheaper than having a salon do it.   3 dollars compared to 150.

I just hope my small salon can survive this time off. They are great stylists and lovely people.

Re: What are people doing about their grey hair

@Mitchell I was scared a few years ago to apply color to my roots to alleviate the month(s) inbetween salon visits and try to save some money.  I talked to my niece who told me she uses a touch up with no problem and has been for several years inbetween appointments  I tried her recommendation, Clariol Root Touch Up and have been  using it inbetween appointments for the last two years.  Havn't had a problem.  If you just need root touchup you may want to try this  It lasts for about 3 to 3 12 weeks.  I have also used Joan Rivers touch up powder that is sold on qvc for roots.  It works pretty good. There are also sprays for roots which I confess I have not used.

@Mitchell   On Q, Joan Rivers Good Hair Day. Brushes on and stays on until you shampoo. Since most are washing hair less often, no issue.

Re: What are people doing about their grey hair

I'll use either a root spray or powder for the time being.  I don't feel like wasting good hair color.  I color my own anyways, so when I get ready to do it, I will.

 

However, I know my salon for the people who get their color done there is offering root touch-up kits in their formulation.  

 

I saw on the Kelly & Ryan show today Kelly's colorist who recommended a root touch-up kit over regular box color.  His partner demonstrated the process, although he only did the top of his head; the back is the hardest part to do.
