I’m 50 years old and dealing with aging hair is just one of the fun things that comes along with arthritis and age spots. My hair as always been fine and thin. I have always had to really work at having soft, shiny, and bouncy hair. Remember the big hair craze of the eighties? That was not something that came easily to me and it still doesn’t.

Dealing with Aging Hair
I started getting gray hair after the birth of my daughter, in my twenties. Not only does gray hair result in a color change, it results in changes to the hair itself. Gray hairs are thicker and wirier which is why they seem more noticeable when you look in the mirror. Some days, it seems like I notice a new gray hair every single day. Aging is challenging enough without adding one more thing to deal with.
A simple way to deal with gray hair is to have it highlighted or colored. I began by highlighting my hair, but I’ve recently started coloring it. I like the overall appearance that coloring gives to my hair. But, I’m not liking how noticeable it is when it starts to grow out. I try really hard to stay on top of my salon appointments, but sometimes time gets away from me. When that happens, there are two new products I’ve added to my hair care routine.
EVERPRO GRAY AWAY temporary root concealer

My hair has been greying since my early 20’s. I go through stages. Sometimes, I feel like I should just leave it natural and enjoy it that way. Other times I want to let it make me feel a little younger and I’ll color it. This is a new product to me. Thanks for sharing!
You are very welcome!
This sounds like something I’d like to try. I still can’t decide if I want to start coloring the grey in my hair and expose my sensitive scalp to chemical dyes every month. I don’t have that many grey hairs and it doesn’t bother me too much. My sister started getting grey hairs in high school but her hair is darker and it looks very natural now, colored her natural color. I know this is for roots so maybe it would allow me to color just ever other month.
It can’t hurt to try it, Deb!
My gray has been getting worse and worse. I used to be able to go 16 weeks in between colorings and now I can barely make it 8 weeks! I need to try this to extend my color!
Definitely! It will help extend it!
Thanks for sharing! I’m in my 30’s, and my hair started getting gray a few years ago. I’ve just started to consider coloring it to hide the gray. I’ll keep this product in mind for when I decide it’s time to cover it up. Thank you!
Glad to help, Nicole!
I have always wondered if this product works and now I can’t wait to try it! this sounds like just what I need in between hair dyes!
Definitely try it!
