This two-in-one is perfect for those days in between washes: you know, when you need a little dry shampoo action but also want the added gray coverage. Just a few quick sprays and you’re good to go, whether you’re headed to work, the gym or a night out on the town! Although there are tons of different brands that offer colored dry shampoo, Batiste Dry Shampoo with a Hint of Color is our go-to and offers three different colors for brunettes, blondes, and redheads!
For a subtle but effective option, the Madison Reed Root Touch Up powder gives instant natural coverage and may be a better option for those who would like to stray away from using aerosol sprays but still want to conceal the grey. Again, there are tons of brands that have similar products, but Madison Reed’s Root Touch Up powder will stay put between washes, is sweat proof, and is transfer resistant so you won’t wake up with stains on your pillow in the morning.
A quick option that is sure to cover up the most stubborn greys, and with eight different shades, will work for just about everyone. Root sprays are a great choice for the last days before that next salon appointment when you’re feeling like you need a little bit of extra coverage.
Scarves can make the cutest hair accessory, while also helping conceal your greys. Next time you're having a bad hair day, reach for a scarf headband or a cute scarf head wrap. There are endless ways to wear a hair scarf that will add a special flair to your look and help make you feel more confident with those grey hairs covered.

5. Do NOT Use Boxed Dye
It can be tempting to use a boxed hair dye to cover those grays. After all, it’s much less expensive than going to a salon, you don’t have to spend hours sitting in a salon chair and you can do it within the comfort of your own home. However, the damage that boxed dye does to your hair greatly exceeds any benefit you could gain from using it. While greying hair can be a nuisance, you don’t want to pay hundreds of dollars and hours in the salon to reverse the mistake of using box dye for a “quick” and “cheap” fix.
