Unfortunately, gray or white hairs could possibly strike at any age and can be spread out on your head or clustered together. Premature gray hairs may be caused by simple genetics and, of course, are more common as you get older.2
So, what should you do if these little gray hairs bother you?
If about 20 to 30 percent of your hair color is gray, go ahead and color your hair if you’d like to get rid of the gray. If your grays are popping in with only a few in one spot, try a root concealer to hide the grays if you don’t want to be committing to permanently coloring your hair. Root concealers can match your hair color and hide grays easily and wash out when you wash your hair. Keranique’s Tint & Texture Color Density Treatment Spray delivers lightweight color to your scalp and hair and instantly fills in thinning areas.
You can also try a brow touch-up gel, that looks like a mascara and is normally used to color your eyebrows, on your stray grays. Just pick a color that matches your hair color and color in those grays carefully. If you have light hair, try using a colored dry shampoo. It can lighten up those grays and blend them in every so slightly. It will also keep your hair looking fresh and give it a boost of volume!
If you have a few grays here and there, you are probably known to pluck or yank them out. However, if you keep yanking out your hair, you may end up with a bald spot! Try to resist the urge.1
