There might be a gray hair movement taking place amongst celebrities, bloggers and fashionistas alike, but that’s one trend I won’t be partaking in.
I’ve been plagued with premature graying in one spot since I was 5 and have never liked my silver streaks. So, as soon as I was old enough to dye them, I did just that. However, since giving birth last year, I’ve steered clear of dyeing my hair to give it time to replenish and get back to normal.
In the meantime, I’ve been using Black Opal’s Gray Root Retouch Concealer Spray. I didn’t know they offered products beyond their lovely cosmetic line, but was pleasantly surprised. I simply spray it 2-3 inches from the pesky patch and it instantly covers my unruly grays! Plus, it dries almost instantly (give or take a minute or two).
Thanks to the illusion of thicker hair that the darkening formula creates, the spray also helps conceal the post-partum hair loss I’ve been experiencing around my edges (where my problem gray area happens to be).
An added bonus is it doesn’t come off until you wash it out; no worrying about it smearing or smudging onto pillowcases, scarves or satin bonnets! It’s been my go-to for months and I will continue using it in between my dye touch-ups once I go back to permanently coloring my hair and when my post-partum hair loss ceases.
If you’re looking to cover up unwanted grays, this spray is a great buy!
Do you dye your hair to hide grays or do you embrace your pigment-free strands? Did you suffer from post-partum hair loss?
