I have been happy with this product. It seems to cover the gray well.

I used to use those drugstore brands. Nowadays and for a while now, I use Bigen, which you can only get at beauty supply stores. It's non-ammonia and only $4 a box!

I use the semi-permanent kind so i don't have 2-tone hair as it grows out. i should recolor it every 2 months, but i'm kinda lazy about it (and apparently don't really care that i have so much white hair!) hmmmmm...i think i'm lazier than not caring.

anyway, it's $7 a box at WalMart, and their are occasionally coupons in the inserts or coupons.com.

I've used L'oreal for years and it does a good job to cover my gray. Looks natural

I use Schwarzkopf Keratin Hair Color now. I used to use whatever was cheapest, but as I got older it didn't seem to cover the gray as much.

I recently saw this..
https://www.myhairprint.com/pages/the-science

Looks sooo cool. I am going to get my hair colored right before we go back to school. That way it looks nice for a while.

I wish I could do it on my own at home but I'm not that great at it. I also don't like the big mess. At the place I go to get my hair done they now seperate the charges. You can just get roots done and/or hair cut.

I started coloring my hair at home about a year ago because I just can't find the time to have it done at a salon anymore.

My hair grows fast - I color it every 4 weeks. I've used all kinds of brands, but I didn't find one worked better than another. It's a lot cheaper than having it done at a salon!

I use Revlon color silk. It is the best at covering my gray hairs.

I've used L'Oreal Preference and Clairol. I think both are fine; the Clairol has a bit more depth to the color.

Revlon Colorsilk is like $3.00 a box at Walmart and works fine to cover the grays.

I liked Garnier

Nutrisse.

I used it for years. Prior to that I used L'Oreal. I like that the Garnier had an oil, so the color didn't smell so much.

I stopped coloring my hair last spring. It's all grey now, but more of a white/platinum color. I'm still not sure I like it, but I've gotten a lot of compliments on it.

I find it frustrating that my 70 year old sister has a miniscule amount of grey and mine is almost all grey.
