With a rising popularity of women embracing their natural greys, women are heading to the salons asking for statement silver locks - so much so that we named Silver the Hair Colour of the Year in 2019. However despite its rising popularity, not everyone feels comfortable taking the leap into showing off their salt and pepper strands and opt for alternative coverage.
If you find yourself sitting firmly in the ‘cover them up’ grouping, then read on for our top tips on navigating colouring your greys at home.

5 top tips for covering greys at home like a pro
When choosing your shade, we recommend going for a colour that’s slightly darker for your roots and slightly lighter that matches your natural colour for the rest of your hair. This is due in part to the colour of the root being lighter already than the currently dyed lengths, applying the same colour all over will produce uneven coverage. The L’Oréal Excellence Crème is enriched with a Pro-Keratin formula that ensures up to 100% grey coverage, leaving hair feeling stronger and nourished. Follow our Triple Care Colour Regime below:
- CARE FOR YOUR COLOUR – includes protective colouring cream with Pro-Keratin and serum actives inside, it helps protect the hair as it colours.
- CARE FOR YOUR SCALP – includes caring gentle pH shampoo that delicately cleanses the scalp and hair of excess residue.
- CARE FOR YOUR HAIR – includes lightweight nourishing mask infused with Ceramides that intensely nourishes the hair without weighing it down.
