Hi everyone, I'm Hairstylist Amanda Shackleton, and today I'm going to show you how to cover sprinkles of gray that are in your hair. Once you start turning a certain age and the gray hair start showing up, there are a couple of tricks that really really help in order to cover it. My first suggestion would be to get a spray that has a little bit of color in it and just spray it at the roots where the gray actually is, just to kind of give that a little bit of coverage. Now, you want to get a color that's a little bit darker because once you spray the gray, the color will lighten up when it hits the hair. Next, I'm going to take a little section of hair and we're going to give it a little lift at the roots. What this is going to do is it's going to take the eye away from the gray on the bottom of the hair, just give it a little bit of lift and it's going to give more dimension to the hair, more fullness to the hair and you're not going to notice so much the gray that's going on, especially if it's in the front of your hair. We'll just keep on taking some little sections, you can keep on teasing and spraying the roots a little bit with the colored spray. "Tilt your head back." Take the last section, go ahead and tease it and then what I suggest at the end is to take a little bit of some kind of Argan oil or something like that, just a teeny teeny bit in your hand like that; rub it around in your palms and just kind of finish off the ends. What happens is the hairspray can make it look a little bit hard looking, so we want to make sure to soften up the hair, give it a nice natural look. And there you go, you've covered up your gray.
