Here are a few tips from our professional colorists on what to do if your gray hair is unusually resistant to hair coloring:
- When you begin the color application process, first apply the color to the areas where your hair may be most difficult to color. This is usually at the front hairline and at the natural part in your hair.
- Make sure you completely saturate your hair with color. You should use at least half of the contents of the bottle on your roots. If you have very thick or long hair, consider ordering a second tube of color to ensure you have enough for your mid-lengths and ends.
- When you finish your application, go back to your resistant areas and put even more color on the color-resistant areas.
- Give your hair a little more time to absorb the color. An extra 5 - 10 minutes should do the trick. Use your gloved fingers to massage the color into your roots.
