Hello, everyone, my name is Mirza, I'm a global team member with Eufora International. And I'm here today, to talk to you about how to cover gray hair with light brown highlights. Keeping in mind that you cannot cover gray hair unless you use permanent hair color. Using light brown highlights on gray hair is more of a blending effect than a covering effect. To really cover gray hair, you have to put on an all over color. That means roots and ends have to be covered with permanent hair color. The gray will be gone until it grows back in. And that's when you'll start to see a line of demarcation. That means maintenance every three to four weeks. Because within three to four weeks, you will see the roots come back in gray. So, a great way to counter that intensity of maintenance having to go in so often, is to actually add a couple different highlights and low lights of various brown tones. So, using light brown to cover gray would actually be more like blending the gray. Because you wouldn't cover 100 percent of the gray hair. You would just do a heavy application of a light brown color like this model here. Where you would actually just diffuse the intensity of the natural gray hair. The great thing about this is you're putting in tomes like warmer tones that have left the hair. And to contrast with the gray. That will make it look more natural and softer. The other thing too, as this grows out, it's actually going to give you little bit more time in between services because you won't see the line of demarcation as intensely. Since the gray is still naturally present in the hair. So, in this case what we did, is used a really dark tone, a level two darkest brown. And about a level seven-eight golden blond to kind of diffuse the gray. So, you still see some of the gray but it's completely diffused. So, it looks a lot more natural, it still looks like natural tones are in her hair. But the gray is blended in.
