    • Why not invest in a hairdresser doing your hair and then when your DIY you have some tips and you also know what shade will help .......

    • I love love Clairol Natural Instincts.  It washes out in 8 weeks.  Never use Feria when trying to cover grey.  Unless you like pink highlights :)~

      Then again the girls have a good idea there—go to a salon!

    • I use Clairol Nice and Easy. I agree with the other ladies, maybe the first time have it done professionally. Then you can try it yourself.

    • Alot depends on the results you are looking for and how much grey you actually have. If you only have a few strands do DIY is fine if you get the temporary color that fades with each shampoo. If you are looking to permanently erradicate the grey I would only and always go professional.

      There is also shampoo out there that has color in it. Artec by Loreal is a professional product that comes in a variety of colors. This is the best way to go if you only have a few.

      Good Luck!

    • i bought a dye from Whole Foods Market that is all natural no bleach etc - i’m not sure if that is the correct term but it is supposed to be less harsh on the hair; my goal is to get as close to my natural color.  a sales person did help me select the color and it matched perfect - just wondering if there were any do’s or dont’s i should keep in mind.  thanks everyone.

    • Never do it your self. One of my jobs is that im a nail tech so I spend all day in a salon/spa. And I hear about all these home jobs that have gone horrible, then they come in to us to fix em’ up. Please give your self a lil pampering & go get a professional job. happy

    • I use the Clairol 10.  It only takes 10 minutes and it’s easy on my hair.  It does make my hair a bit redder.  I have to use the ash shades to avoid the red.
