Color Your Hair Beautiful!
If you're like many women who color their hair, you don't want dramatic change -- just hide the gray and add body and shine.Covering Gray
Starting to see silver strands? Try a semi-permanent formula, such as Clairol Natural Instincts ($6.99), that covers the surface of the hair shaft, enriching the natural hue as it camouflages, without lightening hair. Upkeep: No-maintenance. The color gradually washes out after 24 shampoos, making semi-permanent color a good choice if you're a little gun shy.
If you have a lot of gray, go for a permanent formula, such as Garnier Nutrisse Conditioning Color Masque ($7.29). Permanent color penetrates the hair shaft to lighten the natural color and deposit new pigment. Hair can go up to three shades lighter or darker. Upkeep: You'll need to retouch roots every 4 to 6 weeks because roots will show as new growth comes in.
