I started to get grey hair in high school and was completely grey in my late 20’s.
I am blessed with a full head of hair at age 46, but it’s been grey for about half my life and I’ve never done anything about it, until now.
I was at my regular salon getting my hair cut and we started chatting about men’s hair styles and grey hair. My guy, Nathaniel, at La Mode Salon asked if I had ever done grey blending. I said, “no, what’s that”? He went on to explain about Goldwell Men’s Reshading and how it doesn’t have any solid color effect and that it only darkens the grey highlights. I was somewhat apprehensive about it since I didn’t want to look weird with completely dark hair.
He convinced me there wasn’t anything to worry about so I went ahead with it. It’s a foam solution that gets applied like shampoo right in the shampoo station, and then washed out in about 5 minutes. It didn’t take away any grey, but it did change the light grey tones to a darker grey. It’s subtle and it looks completely natural. Once it wears off in about a month, I’ll probably do it again.
If you want to make a subtle change, I highly recommend having it done. There’s a few shades to choose from, so just ask your stylist what’s right for you. It only adds about $10-$15 to the cost of a haircut so it’s affordable and worth it. As you can see below, he still visibly has grey hair. It’s just been toned down a bit. My experience wasn’t quite this dramatic, but it was a noticeable difference for sure. After application:
