In my many years in the industry of cosmetology, some call it hair dressing and hairstyling. Repeatedly, I get questions about gray hair: How do I prevent getting it? When will I get it? Why isn’t it gray all over? How can I color my hair gray? These are questions that many of us face, both women and men. In my research, this is what I have discovered…
There are cells in our hair follicles called “melanocytes”, which generate pigments, the main ones being melanin. This gives our hair “color”. In most cases, the more melanin that is present, the darker the hair color. The less melanin, the lighter the hair color. Whenever these melanocytes stops producing, the result is transparent hair, that is gray. The transparent hair against your dark healthier hair gives the appearance of gray hair.
One way to deal with your gray hair is to alter your look with a new and exciting hair cut. This keeps you fresh and can give you a sense of sex appeal.
Some choose to recapture the once natural color, which oftentimes, dates the individual, while others opt to change the shape of their hairstyle. This can reveal a new and exciting individual. There are few processes used to create this. The most successful ones are done under the care of a trained colorist. Maintaining your new look is an ongoing process, such as permanent hair coloring, foiling, low lights and highlights and dimming hair color products. For best results, transitioning does not happen overnight. It is a process that takes time with a dedicated professional. For more on this topic, you may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
