Transitioning Techniques

The process of going grey can vary depending on your starting hair colour and texture. Here are some common techniques used to help you gracefully transition to grey:

  • Balayage or Highlights: This technique involves strategically lightening certain sections of your hair to mimic the appearance of natural grey hair. It adds dimension and creates a more gradual transition, minimizing the stark contrast between your natural colour and the emerging grey.
  • Full Bleaching and Toning: For those with darker hair or stubborn pigmentation, our stylist may recommend a full bleaching process followed by toning to achieve an even and consistent grey colour. This method is ideal for individuals who desire a more dramatic transformation.
  • Colour Melting: Colour melting is a technique that involves blending different shades seamlessly. Our stylists can create a customized blend of grey tones that mimic the natural progression of greying hair, giving you a soft and natural-looking result.

Maintaining Healthy Grey Hair

Grey hair, just like any other hair colour, requires proper care and maintenance to keep it healthy and vibrant. Here are some tips to help you maintain your beautiful grey locks:

  • Use Colour-Enhancing Products: Invest in shampoos, conditioners, and styling products specifically formulated for grey hair. These products often contain violet or blue pigments that help neutralize any yellow or brassy tones, keeping your grey hair looking fresh and bright.
  • Regular Conditioning and Moisturizing: Grey hair can be more susceptible to dryness and brittleness. Regularly use deep conditioning treatments and moisturizing hair masks to keep your locks nourished and hydrated.
  • Protect from Heat and UV Damage: Grey hair tends to be more prone to sun damage and can turn yellowish when exposed to UV rays. Protect your hair by wearing hats, using heat protectant sprays before styling, and opting for hairstyles that minimize direct sunlight exposure.

DL Lowry Salon conveniently stocks these products and more, and your stylist can help you identify which ones are right for you.
