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 some point or another. So, we understand if you’re looking to find a way to disguise those bad boys. Luckily, we have an at-home 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. Enter our L’Oréal Paris Excellence Crème at-home hair color kit. Keep reading to learn what is included in an Excellece Creme at-home hair color kit, how it works to protect your hair during the coloring process, how to use it, and how to take care of color-treated hair once you’re sporting a new shade.
Looking for an at-home 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 (which helps protect hair as it colors) comes in a variety of shades of blonde hair, brown hair, red hair, and black hair 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 from which to choose. Our Excellence Creme at-home hair color kit comes with a pre-color treatment to help prime hair for the coloring process and protect color-treated hair. Once you’re done coloring your hair, use the included conditioning treatment to help lock in your new hair color.
Our Excellence Creme at-home 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 comes next, with the color creme. Formulated with a pro-keratin complex, the hair color protects as it colors. Closely follow the instructions included with the packaging of your particular shade selection for best results. Once you've finished changing up your color, it'll be time for the conditioning treatment, formulated with collagen. You won't want to skip this step, as it's responsible for locking in color for lasting radiance. Extremely important! (Learn how to blend gray hair with highlights and lowlights.)
With color-treated hair comes great responsibility. OK, we might be slightly exaggerating here—but color-treated hair really does require special care. Once you’re done covering your gray hair with Excellence Creme, 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 below! (Here are even more tips for caring for color-treated hair.)
1. Switch your hair care products to ones that are formulated for color-treated hair. Say goodbye to shampoo and conditioner you used before you dyed your hair. Swap them out for a system of products formulated for color-treated hair, like the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Intensive Protecting Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Intensive Protecting Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm. Once or twice a week, use the hair mask in place of the conditioner after shampooing.
2. Temporarily hide roots in-between colorings. When your new gray growth starts to show but you don’t have time for a full touch-up, you can help temporarily conceal your grays with the L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Cover Up. This quick, easy, 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 one shampoo. To use, first shake the can well, Then, hold it 4-6 inches away from your hair and spray color onto new growth and partly through the length of your hair to blend in the color. Toss a can in your purse so you can take your look from office to happy hour or in your gym bag so that you can temporarily mask your grays if you have plans after working out. It’s a super-convenient product pick!
3. Color your hair again. Ready for a touch-up now? 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.
