Tips for Coloring Stubborn Grays:

  • You don’t need to color your lengths and ends every time. Just be sure to fully saturate stubborn grays for the best results.
  • After following instructions to color your hair, return to color-resistant areas and apply more color before you relax for processing time.
  • Let your color process for 45 minutes (instead of the usual 35).
