14 Gorgeous Examples of Dyed Gray Hair

Gray hair is usually associated with old age, but lately there has been an interesting shift. Young people are now switching gears, away from rainbow hued hair, and trying out gray hair! That’s right—dyed gray hair is now a thing!

Dubbed “granny hair” by some, dyed gray hair is a hot new trend worn by funky beatniks to celebrities and everyone in between. Well, everyone that’s brave enough to sport silver locks before their time, that is.

Dying hair gray isn’t for the faint of heart, though. Even if you’re prepared to deal with the possible curious looks from strangers and ready for the rigorous upkeep, there’s still the issue of actually dying the hair gray. Hair must first be bleached, sometimes multiple times. A purple toner may also be used to cancel out any yellow or brassy undertones in the hair. Finally, a gray hair dye is applied, leaving you with gorgeous gray locks!

Upkeep for dyed gray hair can be a little more time consuming than upkeep for hair dyed a “normal” color. Using sulfate-free hair products is recommended, as sulfates can strip color from the hair. Since the intense bleaching and dying process can dry out and damage the hair, using a deep conditioner periodically is recommended. Some people find that they also need to use a blue shampoo or gray color depositing shampoo to keep the hair from looking dull. Frequent touchups to get rid of roots are also necessary.
