Gray, gray, go away, don’t come again another day. If you’re a woman whose hair is peppered with pieces of gray hair, chances are you’ve wished for your silver strands to disappear at one point or another. So, we understand if you’re looking to find a way to disguise those bad boys. Luckily, our best hair dye for gray hair is a permanent hair color kit that not only covers grays but features a triple-protection system that cares for your hair before, during, and after the color process. The dye in question? The L’Oréal Paris Excellence Creme at-home hair color kit. Below, we’re sharing all the details on this kit, plus, how to care for your color-treated hair after giving it a try.
Looking for an at-home permanent hair color kit to help hide the look of your gray hair? Look no further than our best at-home hair color kit for covering grays, Excellence Creme. This non-drip creme comes in a variety of shades of blonde, brown, red, and black so that you can easily find your best match. Whether you have super-light blonde hair or deep brunette hair, you’ve got plenty of options to choose from.
Editor’s tip: Struggling to find your shade? You can use our Excellence Creme tool to find your perfect hue.
Our Excellence Creme at-home permanent hair color kit comes with a pre-color treatment, developer creme, hair color, and conditioning treatment. You'll start the coloring process using the pre-color treatment with ceramide, which protects and primes the hair, readying it for the dye. Actually coloring your hair with the color creme comes next. Formulated with a pro-keratin complex, the hair color protects as it colors. Closely follow the instructions included with your dye for the best results. Once you've finished changing up your color, it'll be time for the conditioning treatment, which is formulated with collagen. You won't want to skip this step, as it's responsible for locking in color for lasting radiance. Extremely important!
With color-treated hair comes great responsibility. Okay, we might be slightly exaggerating here—but color-treated hair really does require special care. Once you’re done covering your grays with our best hair dye for gray hair, it’s time to make a few simple changes to your hair care routine. Not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered with the following tips:
Want to maintain a healthy hair color? Say goodbye to the shampoo and conditioner you used before you dyed your hair. Swap them out for a system of products that are safe for color-treated hair, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm. Once or twice a week, use the hair mask in place of conditioner.
Give your hair a break and opt for heat-free hair styling products. Use the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse to create soft curls that define your hair’s natural shape and texture.
When your grays start to show (it has to happen eventually) but you don’t have time for a full touch-up, you can help temporarily conceal them with the L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Cover Up. This easy-to-use, lightweight spray dries in a flash with no smudging or sticky residue. Available in a variety of blonde, brown, red, and black shades, it lasts until your next shampoo. To use, shake the can well, then spray onto new growth and partly through the length of your hair to blend in the color.
On the flip side, if you want a more permanent fix, the L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Rescue 10 Minute Root Hair Coloring Kit can save the day. Formulated to give you gorgeous color in little to no time, this option is well worth it. Not to mention, it's designed to match any shade, even professional salon colors. If you go this route, play it safe, and follow the instructions listed on the packaging for seamless color.
Editor’s tip: In a pinch, you can also hide your roots by sporting a headband or trendy head wrap!
Ready for a touch-up? Keep your vanity stocked with a box of Excellence Creme so that you can dye your hair at home and cover those grays whenever needed. This will help ensure your hair color is at its best all the time.
