Hair Hacks: How To Conceal Grey Hair And Make Most Of Your Hair Colour

Sure you love the wisdom you’ve acquired after meeting thousands of people and a couple of break-ups, but you’re NOT ready to show it on your head! And you’re afraid that, sometimes, when people look at you, they are really looking at your grey strands sprouting up and about. I started greying right at the crown of my head at the age of 27—so here are a few tried and tested tips to conceal, avoid greys, and also to make most of your hair colour.

How To Conceal Grey Hair: Change Your Parting

A straight parting can only do you damage by showing your hair roots. Plus if you always part your hair sideways, that area naturally flattens and becomes more prominent. Our suggestion: flip your part to the other side of your head. Not only will it be a refreshing change in your look but also works as a quick fix to hide the greys.

How To Conceal Grey Hair: Add Some Volume

A blowout at the salon can be of help at times you have to attend parties or weddings. The blow dry tends to creates a lot of volume that helps camouflage grey hair. If you want to skip the salon, then volumise at home. Take a small section of hair from the crown of your head, hold it straight up, and comb the roots up and down. You can also set your locks in rollers, or use a curling iron. Finish with a volumising spray like BBlunt Blown Away Volumising Leave-In Spray, Rs 550.


How To Conceal Grey Hair: Shampoo Less Frequently

If you’re already colouring your hair, you’re good to go. The only thing you need to do is to make sure that you don’t overshampoo your hair and use the right products. You can use a dry shampoo like Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo, Rs 1,200, to remove excess oil from your hair and give your hair a natural life, or use a hair cleanser that is lighter on the strands and protects the hair tint, like Paul Mitchell Color Protect Daily Shampoo, Rs 1,200.

How To Conceal Grey Hair: Wave The Mascara Wand

If you’ve got just a few pesky grey strands on your crown, it’s better to try something more temporary like mascara. Choose any formula: lengthening or volumising, and swipe a layer of the formula one by one, on each strand. Make sure you let it be for at least 10 minutes so that it doesn’t smear or come off on your hands. In fact, some brands in India are about to launch hair mascaras very soon in shades of brown and black. In the meantime, you can try Shahnaz Hussain Black Hair Mascara, Rs 495.


How To Conceal Grey Hair: Black Tea To The Rescue

A natural remedy to conceal greys, black tea can lend its own tint for you to enjoy black hair. Take 2 tablespoons of tea leaves in water, letting it reduce for a while. Bring it to a boil and let it cool down till it reaches room temperature. Use a hair brush to apply the concoction on your hair and let it be for about an hour. Wash it off with cool water (no shampoo). Be patient with results since it takes some time to conceal grey hair.


How To Conceal Grey Hair: Avoid Premature Greying

I faced it this year…my lifestyle and stress levels were ridiculously showing up on my head. So avoid unnecessary stress and cut down as many chemical treatments and tools as possible (I abused the hair straightener).


How To Conceal Grey Hair: DIY Curry Leaves & Coconut Oil

If you can already see a few grey hair strands, take charge by making most of curry leaves. It’s easy to do at home and helps you avoid chemicals. So all you need to do is to boil 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil and add a couple of curry leaves to it. Strain the oil and let it cool down. Then use it for a good scalp massage and wash your hair as usual.
