Do you have any gray hair?
Why we ask: When your hair color grows out, how much gray do you see? Knowing how much gray is in your hair helps us find your perfect color match with complete gray coverage. For optimal coverage, base your selection on where you have the most amount of gray.
Are your grays hard to cover?
Why we ask: Not all gray is the same. Some gray hair is more stubborn than others, and can be hard to color. Maybe you’ve heard this from your stylist or have struggled with covering grays yourself in the past. This probably means you have resistant grays. Luckily, we have shades specifically formulated for color-resistant gray hair.
Is your hair currently color treated?
Why we ask: Color treated hair responds differently than untreated hair to coloring products. Understanding the current state of your hair helps inform your recommendations.
